Deadline for Code+Art Submissions | NCSU Libraries

April 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 11:59 pm


What is it? The NCSU Libraries is pleased to announce its third-annual Code+Art Student Visualization Contest. Students are invited to create visualizations that may be data art pieces, procedural environments, or virtual reality experiences. Entries will compete for cash prizes and winners will be announced April 26, 2017.


Purpose: Libraries have long been places where people have explored new ways of interacting with information. We invite students to create visualizations that give visitors a taste of the possibilities that await them inside our Libraries.

What are we looking for? We are looking for attractive visualizations that are created with a computer. Submissions in the following categories will be accepted:

  • Data visualization / data art
  • Generative art
  • Procedurally generated environments (game environments, for example)
  • Virtual or augmented reality experiences

Note: We are especially interested in “massively responsive” web-based work that could be displayed on the Hunt Library video walls.


  • First – $400
  • Second – $200
  • Third – $100

Winners are responsible for any tax implications. There is a greater impact on nonresident aliens who are subject to US tax of 30% for prizes and awards and additional State of North Carolina taxes. There are also several pieces of legal documentation required in order to process the payment for nonresident aliens (W-8BEN, visa, passport, I-94).

Who is eligible? Any NC State undergraduate or graduate student enrolled during Spring 2017 is eligible to enter. Students may enter either individually or in groups. Groups may have both undergraduates and graduates within the same group. Students from all departments in the university are encouraged to enter. Students who graduated in December 2016 are ineligible.
