About


GigaJam is a 36-hour creative competition hosted by the A&M chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH that gives participants a chance to create amazing work in a competitive environment. Participants will create artwork based on a prompt revealed at the event’s opening ceremony to be judged by a panel of industry professionals.

Our purpose is to bring together and expand the community of computer graphics and animation in a collaborative competition. By taking part in GigaJam, participants will work together and compete in an environment engineered for them to learn, create, and gain valuable feedback.
