Kudos to our esteemed runners-up: John Scanlan for his serene “Lavender Fields Forever” and vivid “Emerald Coast,” Kristine Schneider’s dynamic “Work & Play,” and Curt Baldwin’s minimalist “The Leetch.” Each artwork truly embodied the festival’s vibrant spirit.

We are also incredibly grateful for the enthusiastic participation of all the artists and the overwhelming response from the community. The surge in IRCODE app sign-ups has been inspiring, enhancing engagement and interaction at the festival. Your support and creativity have been paramount.

Digital Authentication and Protection

IRCODE can act almost like a digital watermark, helping prove authenticity and ownership without altering the physical appearance of your artwork. This is especially valuable in the digital age where art replication and copyright infringement are rampant.

Traditional watermarks can often be removed or altered using sophisticated photo-editing software, which can clone the surrounding pixels to cover or edit out the watermark. In contrast, IRCODE integrates into the very fabric of the image data itself, making it an intrinsic part of the image that does not visually alter the artwork and cannot be separated my any means. This makes IRCODE a robust tool against unauthorized replication, ensuring the artist’s ownership and the image’s integrity are preserved.

With IRCODE, a simple scan of an image can instantly reveal its authenticity, no matter where it’s used. This is due to IRCODE’s advanced technology which creates a unique identifying code from the image itself. It’s a transparent yet tamper-proof method ensuring that the origin and legitimacy of the image can always be verified with ease by anyone.

While IRCODE isn’t a flawless system and has some limitations (See Limitations), it stands as a formidable tool for artists aiming to safeguard their work. By integrating the artwork itself as the unique code, IRCODE enhances protection against unauthorized use and plagiarism, offering a layer of security that’s hard to bypass. Though it may not eliminate all forms of copyright infringement, its ability to verify authenticity and ownership with a simple scan makes it an invaluable asset in the digital preservation of art.

If you are located in the EU or UK, this section applies to you.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK GDPR require us to explain the valid legal bases we rely on in order to process your personal information. As such, we may rely on the following legal bases to process your personal information:

You can ask for the deletion of your personal information. If you ask us to delete your personal information, we will respect your request and delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions provided by law, such as (but not limited to) the exercise by another consumer of his or her right to free speech, our compliance requirements resulting from a legal obligation, or any processing that may be required to protect against illegal activities.

Right to be informed — Request to know

Depending on the circumstances, you have a right to know:

  • whether we collect and use your personal information;
  • the categories of personal information that we collect;
  • the purposes for which the collected personal information is used;
  • whether we sell or share personal information to third parties;

We will not discriminate against you if you exercise your privacy rights.

Right to Limit Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information

We do not process consumer’s sensitive personal information.

Verification process

Upon receiving your request, we will need to verify your identity to determine you are the same person about whom we have the information in our system. These verification efforts require us to ask you to provide information so that we can match it with information you have previously provided us. For instance, depending on the type of request you submit, we may ask you to provide certain information so that we can match the information you provide with the information we already have on file, or we may contact you through a communication method (e.g., phone or email) that you have previously provided to us. We may also use other verification methods as the circumstances dictate.

We will only use personal information provided in your request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. To the extent possible, we will avoid requesting additional information from you for the purposes of verification. However, if we cannot verify your identity from the information already maintained by us, we may request that you provide additional information for the purposes of verifying your identity and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. We will delete such additionally provided information as soon as we finish verifying you.

  • You may request correction of your personal data if it is incorrect or no longer relevant, or ask to restrict the processing of the information.
  • You can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf. We may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been validly authorized to act on your behalf in accordance with the CCPA.
  • You may request to opt out from future selling or sharing of your personal information to third parties. Upon receiving an opt-out request, we will act upon the request as soon as feasibly possible, but no later than fifteen (15) days from the date of the request submission.

How can I control cookies on my browser?

As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser to browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information. The following is information about how to manage cookies on the most popular browsers:

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit:

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited our Website or opened an email including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention, and for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Website. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. They can accomplish this by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Please therefore revisit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.

What are IRCODE’s Limitations?

IRCODE strives to be the best it can at image retrieval (and we’re the best out there) however, there are several use cases that we are still working on getting better at. Here are a few that will challenge our technology. 

  1. Single tone or gradient tone images
    • The IRCODE technology works off of recognizing shapes and forms referred to as technically as – Feature-based Image Matching. Although in the future we will get better at recognizing distinct images with few features and even single colors, at the moment we are unable to differentiate between the color blue by one artist vs the color blue by another artist.
  2. Extreme angles and partial occlusions
    • Although we are pretty stellar at recognizing images at angles and even partially obscured or altered, sometimes the image recognition will struggle at extreme angles or with occlusions of more than 50%. 
    • If you encounter issues recognizing images, please adjust your position and try again. 
  3. 3D Non-planar Images and Sculptures
    • Image recognition works for 3D artworks and objects as long as you scan them from approximately the angle at which they were registered.
    • We will soon be adding functionality to the IRCODE app to register a full 3D representation that we extract from a short clip recorded with the app. This allows registration of sculptures, architecture and interiors and eliminates restrictions on viewing angles.
  4. Shaky or blurry image capture
    • We do fairly well still recognizing images with slight blur but it can lead to mixed results. We recommend holding your phone as steady as possible when scanning an image for the best possible results. 
  5. Replications of famous images or paintings
    • By design IRCODE will recognize the original work rather than the copy or altered version. IE Mona Lisa Terminator image.
      • Unfortunately if you are an artist who loves taking other famous works and altering them we will have a hard time registering your work unless it differs significantly from the original. How much different – As this is a new technology we are still measuring this and will update this section as we come back with quantitative results.
