Do you have an entry for this year's contest? Are you mesmerized by visual illusions? Then read on!
Submission instructionsVisual Illusion Contestants are invited to submit novel visual or multimodal illusions (unpublished, or published no earlier than 2008) in standard image, movie or html formats. An international panel of impartial judges will rate the submissions and narrow them to the top ten. Then, at the Contest Gala in Naples, the top ten illusionists will present their contributions and the attendees of the event (that means you!) will vote to pick the TOP THREE WINNERS!. . .Submissions can be emailed to Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde (Illusion Contest Coordinator, Neural Correlate Society) until February 16th, 2009. Illusion submissions should come with a (no more than) one-page description of the illusion and its theoretical underpinnings (if known). Illusions will be rated according to:
- Significance to our understanding of the visual system
- Simplicity of the description
- Sheer beauty
- Counterintuitive quality
