NYIT Fine Arts partners with indi.com! A 3D Animation Competition
Judging and voting were done in two categories:
1. Judge's Picks and Featured Works!
Two industry professionals, Christoph Roth (LA) and Bradley Peterson (NY) picked their top favorites, as well as picked additional "featured picks" for indi.com. These animations are screened in a special "featured" section of the site, and are being viewed by thousands of visitors!
2. Voting for Cash Prizes!
Students promoted their own work using social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter to get votes for their animations. This was a great exercise in self-promotion, and all animations got hundreds (some over a thousand!) of views! Here are the winners with the most number of votes!
Carmine LoMonaco-1st Place ($500)
Dennis Hernandez-2nd Place ($100)
Jordyn Shapiro-3rd Place ($50)
Thanks to all the students for their dedication and hard work on finishing their projects and submitting to the contest. A big thanks goes to Bayou Bennett, Nicole Greenwood, Daniel Lirr, and everyone at Indi.com, and to the judges Christoph Roth and Bradley Peterson for making it all possible!
