By cross-matching blue objects from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey with Galaxy Evolution Explorer and the astrometric catalogues USNO-B1.0, GSC2.3 and CMC14, 64 new dwarf nova candidates with one or more observed outbursts have been identified. 14 of these systems are confirmed as cataclysmic variables through existing and follow-up spectroscopy. A study of the amplitude distribution and an estimate of the outburst frequency of these new dwarf novae and those discovered by the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey indicate that besides systems that are faint because they are farther away, there also exists a population of intrinsically faint dwarf novae with rare outbursts.
