List of all competition prizes
The total value of all the prizes for Assembly Summer 2007 is over 39.000 euros. The figure might go up depending of sponsors and budget. This is divided between the demoscene competitions and gaming competitions, roughly 26.000 and 13.000 euros respectively. Assembly Summer 2007 prizes will be hardware and some cash, it might also include some software as an added bonus. The value of all hardware is given to us by the sponsors, so we calculate the value on average prices - not by the cheapest webshop you can find on the planet.
All damages to the party place, other surroundings and other damages caused by party visitors will be REDUCED from the prizes before any prizes are paid. This is because of previous trouble with people breaking up places, furniture and spraying the walls and thus causing damage of many thousand dollars.
Depending of the quality and number of entries in each category, main competition organizer can opt to redistribute some of the prizes (max 50%) to other categories.
