Mac3DNY.org renames and sponsors Teapot Awards
Architosh Press Report: THE GOLDEN TEAPOT AWARDS: 3D ART SHOW AND COMPETITION LAUNCHES!!
Sponsored by 3dNY.ORG and supported by industry giants Alias|Wavefront, auto•des•sys, dvGarage and others who are offering up thousands of dollars in award prizes for the first "Golden Teapot Awards for Excellence in 3D Design & Illustration"
The contest is open to all 3dNY members (membership is free!) and submission page is on our website at http://www.3dny.org The deadline is a very lucky Friday July 13th! All entrees appear in the online gallery and BEST OF SHOW WINNERS will be on display at 3dNY's MACWORLD EXPO NY booth #1843 on Wednesday the 18th and Friday the 20th.
Grand Prize is a copy of auto*des*sys' FORM-Z RADIOZITY (retail $2390), their most powerful top-of-the-line 3D product. Catagory winners choose from the MAYA GIFT BUNDLE, FACT MODEL DISK, LEARN LIGHTWAVE SEMINAR, 3DTOOLKIT.
Related news, 3dNY.org was just launched earlier today and is the replacement for mac3dny.org, may it rest in peace. The change is in response to the tremendous growth since being founded by Lance Evans and Sara Sprague just 6 months ago.
"We now have over 600 members and have been told it is the largest association of 3d artists/animators in the country." says Lance. "Our original site was just not designed for this kind of diversity--I laugh remembering how we hoped to get 50 people!" In its short existence the group has been host to most of the major 3D developers, having produced numerous seminars at Apple Computer in Manhattan.
The new site is a complete rework with a more accessible interface that offers better BBS service and other features, and the name change will be more inclusive for members who work on various platforms. "We kept getting e-mails asking 'I work on Windows, can I come to the Mac3dNY meeting?' With the new name there is no longer a question that everyone is welcome" said Sara Sprague who is both Webmaster and tech Guru. She was also responsible for moving the whole system over to a Linux based Apache server running SQL which she says "will make it all run much faster and smoother."
A smooth running system will be more important as 3dNY.org begins providing more services to the 3d community online and off.
