CGSociety : Special Event

The winners of ‘NVArt 6: Moving Innovation’ have been announced. The digital art contest challenged hundreds of artists from around the world to explore the future of electronic device design, and offered them a share of a prize pool worth over $34,000 (USD).
This year’s competition was inspired by the ongoing revolution in personal computing devices. We are just at the beginning of a rapid ride into the future, and today’s current crop of smart phones, tablets and notebooks will look like they’re from the Stone Age in just a few short years as the rapid, relentless pace of technological advances never ceases. Where will the latest technological revolution take us? What will portable technology look like in the next decade? Will we carry it, wear it or maybe even plug it into ourselves? How will we interact with the next generation of tech devices? These are some of the questions that the ‘NVArt 6: Moving Innovation’ competition posed, and the following winning artists are the ones who best answered them, in the form of their innovative and inspiring still images.
Judges of the NV Art 6 competition included: Kyle Swen of Astro; Zorana Gee, Adobe product manager; Adam Benton, a designer for Apple, Nintendo and Sony; Pascal Blanche, art director of Jagex; Steven Stahlberg, 3D artist at CCP; Arnoldas Vitkus, 1st place winner, NVArt 5; David Wright, creative director, NVIDIA), and; Mark Snoswell, president of CGSociety.
