The Grand Finale announcements for the L$ 500,000++ Pursue Impossible 3D Art & Film Challenges will be from 6am SLT, Sunday 13th December 2015 at the UWA-BOSL Grand Amphitheatre. This will be the last time the international 3D art & film challenges will be run at UWA in the way they have been since the 2009 inception… so hope to see you at this finale.
59 artworks and 45 machinima are in the running for the overall prizes which run to more than L$ 500,000 all in!
DO COME EARLY. ALL THE MACHINIMA WILL BE PLAYING CONTINUOUSLY AT THE VENUE FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE EVENT.
Much thanks to LAPISCEAN LIBERTY & SL Artist who are hosting all the machinima on their site HERE
The Audience Participation events are ongoing and with more than L$ 50,000 available to audience members for attaching the machinima and appreciating the artwork….. closing for the audience events are very soon… so, do get in quick!
WHY IS THIS THE FINAL ONE? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR UWA?
- The UWA sims will continue
- FreeWee Ling will take full control of art at UWA, and will continue to run art events as she has been over the years
- NOT the end of UWA in Second Life
- IS THE END for the major international art and film challenges that have run annually since 2009
- There may be special art or film events if funding is secured to run those specific events (or is a large amount of funding is suddenly available to UWA for work in virtual worlds)
- It has been an amazing honour to run these challenges over the years, and its with a heavy heart that the sun is now setting
