About the competition
Web48 is a 48-hour HTML5 demo competition with surprise prizes.
What’s a demo you ask? A demo is a non-interactive multimedia presentation computed in real-time. The idea of a demo is to show off your awesome skills in programming, graphics and music. Since nobody usually masters all of these, teamwork is required for success.

Scoring and winner
The winner of the competition is decided by points. Scoring is peer-based: each team that submits a piece of work before the deadline is allowed to vote in the final public viewing.
A team with voting right can give out 3, 2 and 1 points to the best pieces of work. A team cannot give points to their own team.
The winner is the team that gets the most points. In case of a tie, the organisers will decide the winner.
