Field-FX 2022 - A demoparty in an tent at EMF Camp 2022
2nd - 6th June 2022, Eastnor Park, Ledbury, UK
a digital frontier arts subculture. And EMF Camp, a festival
for hackers and creative people to gather, party, and share knowledge.
We're throwing a demoparty, and everyone at EMF Camp is invited to
watch, to make entries, and to have a great time. There's a saying on
the scene, "the real party is outside." Well it doesn't get any more
outside than this!
Our goal is to bring the spirit of the demoscene to more people, and
to encourage creativity. We hope you will join us!
Anyone who has a ticket to EMF Camp can join us on site. If you want
to watch remotely, we will be streaming the event on
submit entries (please submit entries!) we will be announcing our
partynet soon. We are not charging for anything, but
are sold separately.
The main compo at any party. We accept entries for the newschool
platforms (that is, desktop computers, web, etc.) as well as oldschool
(8 and 16-bit home computers and consoles). Sizecoded entries are very
Platforms that never existed in real life, but make us feel like they
did. TIC-80, Pico-8, maybe something none of us have seen before?
Amaze us with your creativity.
Badge / Microcontroller
This is a hacker camp, so let's do something with a hacker camp vibe!
Anyone who's seen an EMF Camp badge knows its potential. But maybe you
have an Arduino, or a MicroBIT, sitting around waiting to be used
creatively? Now is your chance to make a demo for a new platform!
15 or younger and want to get creative? We have a special category for
you! Scratch demos, animations, music, photography, whatever you shine
If it makes sound you can enter it.
Max running time 5 minutes.
Music UK Garage - live mixed
Anything goes as long as it's UK Garage and under 5 minutes.
The entries might not be played in full by the DJ, it's up to them.
If there are not enough entries for a DJ set, the entires will be
combined with the music compo.
If it can be displayed on a projector screen and it doesn't move,it's
graphics. From photography to executable graphics, Blender to weaving.
And then there is everything else. What could we possibly have missed?
These competitions are quite broad because this is only a small party,
but if a particular sub-category is very popular, we may (with the
consent of the entrants) split the competition to make it fairer. For
instance oldschool vs newschool or sizecoded vs full-size. All entries
will be loved, respected, and cheered!
Code of conduct
We are committed to making Field FX an inclusive and welcoming event.
Unfortunately, sometimes harassment happens. While we are present on
site at EMF Camp we are all subject to the
EMF Camp Code of Conduct
and our organisers are invested in supporting it.
We will also be extending the same Code of Conduct to our party
stream. Moderators will be present in online channels operated by
Field FX and their identity will be established by a group message at
regular intervals throughout the stream. Tagging them in your message
will elicit a response. During a stream we aim to reach a decision on
all conduct issues within 10 minutes. Outside of channels operated by
us we cannot guarantee support. All reports will be taken seriously
and will be considered in confidence by our team.
