The 3D World CG Awards salute the work of the entire industry: from the artists pushing the boundaries of illustration, animation and visual effects to the developers creating the tools that make it all possible.

The 14 categories include five technology awards and nine creative awards, including VFX Feature Film of the Year, Best Use of CG in Advertising and CG Videogames Award.

Nominees have been chosen by a 17-strong panel of industry experts, representing each area of the CG industry and including representatives from leading film studios Pixar, DreamWorks and ILM.

See the nominations now at cgawards.3dworldmag.com. Winners are revealed in 3D World’s commemorative Awards issue on 14th September 2011.

Sponsors of the first 3D World CG Awards include headline sponsors Autodesk and category sponsors The Foundry, Workstation Specialists, e-on Software and iPi Soft.

Steve Jarratt, Editor of Future’s 3D World, says: “CG is the new star of Hollywood – dominating in film, TV shows and advertising and continually breaking new territory in videogames and visualisation. The big award ceremonies do recognise the work of CG and VFX specialists but it’s time that the hard work of the artists, technicians and developers was recognised in their own right. I hope the whole community will get behind us in honouring the best that this cutting-edge field has to offer.”

Fiona Tully, Publisher of 3D World, says: “3D World has been at the heart of the global CG community for more than a decade and we’re putting our full weight behind these Awards: using the magazine’s global readership and our growing online and social media audiences to celebrate the artistry and technology that powers this exciting industry. We’re delighted to have the backing of so many key players in the industry for this first year.”

At the heart of everything from Hollywood blockbusters to architecture, the CG industry was worth more than $75 billion in 2010 (Source: research company JPR).

3D World is the best-selling international magazine for the CG community, covering animation, VFX, games, illustration and architectural visualisation. 3D World reaches a monthly audience of around 100,000 3D professionals and enthusiasts in print and digitally.
