MOD & Pixel Competition @ Amiga Ireland 2022

Unfortunately, the event will not go ahead due to circumstances partly related to new pandemic restrictions. See you next time!

The Creative Competition for Amiga Ireland 2022 is now accepting entries. Entries will be judged at Amiga Ireland 2022 in January by all in attendance. You can enter as many categories as you like but only one entry per category. Your submission must not have been entered in another/previous competition.

1st Prize: EUR 50 / 2nd Prize: EUR 25 / 3rd Prize: EUR 15.

Closing date for entries is January 26th, 2022. The Creative Competition will be held on Friday, January 28th, 2022. Submit your pixel art or 4-channel MOD below. You do not need to attend to enter, but if you’d like to attend there are some spaces remaining.

MOD / AHX category

Submit 4 channel track in either MOD or AHX format. Maximum 3 minutes and 30 seconds will be played to the judges (but you can submit a longer tune). Protracker v2.3F will be used to play it. Submit as zip or 7z.

PIXEL ART category

Submit a pixel drawing made on Amiga (AmigaOS / AROS / MorphOS / emulated or real hardware). Any application native to those platforms can be used. Ensure your image will display with Multiview.

Submission should include *both an IFF and PNG* version in a zip/7z file.

(Tickets for Amiga Ireland 2022 go on sale in the coming days).

~

We don’t currently plan to shortlist entries but reserve the right to do so. We will test your submission on receipt and contact you if there is any issue. In the unlikely event that there is a technical problem with presenting your submission on the day, we cannot guarantee it will be included but we will do our best. Submitted files will be published online when results are announced and may also be included shown on live stream / pre-recorded online video / podcasts etc. Results will be announced at the event and will be posted online within days of the event. You can find some previous entries/winners at this link.
