Scene.org (also known as The International Scene Organization) is a non-profit organization, providing the currently largest demoscene file repository. It was founded in 1996 by Jaakko "Mellow-D" Manninen, though originally it existed as ftp.fm.org, an FTP-server for releases from the group Five Musicians. In 1997, it re-opened as Scene.org. After the Hornet Archive closed on September 22, 1998, scene.org became the only prominent demoscene-FTP available and quickly became the host of many other releases as well.[2]

The Scene.org servers are hosted in Rotterdam, at the local university. They measure 150-200 GB of traffic each day (as of May 2006) and host about 1.1 TB of demoscene-related data (as of June 2013).[3] The main server is mirrored onto various others, residing in different countries.[4] It is currently sponsored by, among others, Pixar.[5]

Awards[edit]

Scene.org Award statue

In 2003, Scene.org established the Scene.org Awards given annually to the creators of the best demos or intros that year. The winners (except for the Public's Choice category) were selected by a jury, consisting of acclaimed sceners from all around the globe. The awarding ceremony was traditionally held at the Breakpoint demo party.[6], however on the first of September 2010, it was announced that the 2011 award would be held at The Gathering. The Scene.org Awards project however ended at Assembly in 2012.[7]
