Make a button for art!

Northern-Southern is accepting submissions for fun, experimental, novel, psychedelic, tactile, humorous, and/or profound explorations of the HTML button. Throw semantics and user experience out the window. This is about fun and experimentation.

Submissions will be part of an interactive art show called BUTTONS at the Northern-Southern Gallery/Art Space in Austin, TX, on Saturday, April 12th, 2014.

Guidelines & Restrictions:

  1. Button should be confined to a space no larger than 1024w x 768h, regardless of button state. Anything exceeding this size will be automatically cropped.
  2. You can use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, webfonts, and sound, but no Flash.
  3. Must perform well in Webkit browsers and on mobile devices (account for touch states!). Final button collection will be displayed on iPads during the show and online after the show.
  4. All code and relative assets should be stored as a Pen on CodePen.
  5. A link to the Pen with final code should be sent to no later than Thursday, April 10.
  6. All featured submissions will include the creator’s name and a link back to their site.
  7. Any questions? Send us an email at and we'll get back to you ASAP.
