Grand Finale: UWA 3D Open Art Challenge & MachinimUWA IV - Sunday, 11th December 2011
The year-long University of Western Australia (UWA) 3D Open Art Challenge, with its $4,000 USD (L$1,400,000) prize pool, has attracted 858 entries by artists from 24 nations around the globe, with every continent but Antarctica being represented. The companion MachinimUWA IV: Art of the Artists, with entries relating to the artworks that have formed part of the UWA 3D Open Art Challenge, has seen 83 machinimas submitted by artists from Pondicherry (India) to Gdansk (Poland) to Kentucky (USA) to Buenos Aires (Argentina) and many more. Both these challenges come to a finale at 6AM SLT (or 10PM local time in Perth, Western Australia) Sunday the 11th of December at the 200-seat UWA-BOSL Grand Amphitheatre (Entrance 1, Entrance 2).
The UWA 3D Open Art Challenge Gallery, curated by FreeWee Ling of the Unites States, will be open 24/7 in the lead-up to the event, and all are welcome to view the artworks prior to the grand finale (and also for at least a month after).
