The SIDD Benchmark has been hosted as a challenge at the New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement (NTIRE 2019) workshop in conjunction with CVPR 2019.
The participating solutions and results will be published in the challenge report in the CVPR Workshop proceedings.

Challenge preliminary results can be viewed at the following Codalab competitions:
NTIRE 2019 Real Image Denoising Challenge - Track 1: Raw-RGB
NTIRE 2019 Real Image Denoising Challenge - Track 2: sRGB
