The Grand Final round of the UWA 3d Art & Design Imagine & Flagship Challenges is now underway.

We will be announcing the Grand Final winners of the UWA 3d Art & Design Challenges on Sunday 10th October, 2010 at a big event in the UWA-BOSL Ampitheatre - more details coming soon. Before then we have a last round of judging and voting...

Grand Final People's Choice:
The public can help choose the People's Choice awards in all the categories via the People's Choice Vote boards.

Where to vote:
Panel judges are supplying their votes directly to Jayjay Zifanwe during September. However, the public can vote via the UWA 3D A&D Imagine & Flagship Grand Final People's Choice boards which will be open from 8th September to 30 September 2010 and are sited on the UWA Winthrop Winners' Platform

The People Choice Awards are sponsored by Bohemian Ghost (Summerland Estates) and by the Residents of Artemesia.

People's Choice (IMAGINE & FLAGSHIP)

People's Choice (Non-Scripted)
1st Prize - L$8,000
2nd Prize - L$5,000
3rd Pize - L$3,000

How To Vote:
Pick up a TP HUD from the dispensor at teh landing point on UWA Winthrop Winners' Platform.
Wear the HUD, visit all 4 floors of the Imagine entries and TP using the HUD to the 23 Flagship builds. Return to the Winners' Platform to cast your votes on the boards there.

How to use the vote boards:
1. You can choose only TWO items on EACH of the 3 vote boards.
2. Only ONE VOTE PER ITEM on the board (you cannot give one item more than one vote).
3. Touch the item for which you would like to vote. The board will tell you alone in chat and in a confirmation menu which item it is you are voting for.
4. Click YES if it is the correct item, or NO if you wish to change your mind/have touched the wrong item.
5. You have 60 seconds to respond before the confirmation menu times out.
6. The board will confirm in chat which item you have voted for and how many votes you have cast. As you get the chance to confirm or decline a vote no discussion of "misplaced votes" will be entered into.
6. You can vote only for a maximum of 2 items per vote board.

If the board appears to be down or you cannot find the image of the piece you would like to vote for please send a notecard with the artist and title of the work/s to JayJay Zifanwe and quadrapop Lane. (please name the card "UWA Grand Final PC Vote - (your name) so that they can find it in their inventories!)

If you have any queries about the voting system please contact quadrapop Lane by IM and notecard.

Vote stacking will not be tolerated - any of the entries where it is obvious the builder/artist has attempted to stack votes in their favour will be disqualified. We are aware of who votes, when, and where they have been within the gallery area.
