Compo results at Pouet

Here are the results for all of the compos. Great amount of entries with a lot of variety this year. Congratulations to all the winners!

Thank you for great event

This years event is now over. Alternative Party wants to thank all the visitors, speakers, artists, sceners, exhibitors, sponsors, partners and ALL of you for a warm and lovely event we got.


The program was excellent, the lack of elitism was excellent.

Under blinking neon lights, hidden from evil corporations and offering a safe haven for all kinds of cybercitizens, digital refugees and edgerunners, the party program of Alternative Party 2009 is a timeline of exploding entertainment, razor-sharp technical excellence, non-conformist creativity and intelligent rebellion.

More details about the program is published constantly.

Special guests

Sophie Wilson and Jeri Ellsworth bring wisdom and some mad skillz to the venue. Wilson, a pioneer of the 8-bit computing era and also an engineer of the ARM architecture, has even promised to bring an original Acorn System One prototype with her! If you have not noticed the Commodore 64 Direct-to-TV joystick, you might know Jeri Ellsworth from her and George Sanger's Fat Man and Circuit Girl show.

Technical and artistic merits are nothing. Capture the big screen - or the PA system or the whole stage - in your creative endeavour. Can you do it in 320x200 pixels? Do you have what it takes to obliterate the competition with old 8-bit hardware? A friendly but challenging duel of skills is the heart of any demoparty. Even if your skills are focused around wearing an outfit worth noticing, we have something for you!


As a meeting place of different aspects of culture, be it digital or analogue, we also bring noteworthy artists to carry you through the night. Dope Stars Inc, Byproduct, 64mula, Tero and many more!

Art and Technology Exhibition

The exhibition of classic computers, technology from the future and mindblowing art! See Glittermouse doing multimedia drawing, Supercomputer technology, MSX computers, audiovisual technology and lots of more to see and do!
