UWA would also like to acknowledge fellow sponsors, MidnightRain Glas, Philip Vought, Patch Thibaud and Aino Baar of Open This End. And also TheDove Rhode who has kindly stepped in to be a Grand Finale sponsor as well.

The many contributions coming in from everyone through the little donations receiver have this year been put towards special prizes, including the Curator’s Choice Award. Anything received after today will go to the Grand Finale pool. It is important to me to also acknowledge everyone who did contribute over the month towards prizes across the year and the Grand Finale.

At this point I would like for all of you to help me acknowledge the amazing work required to keep all of this going. As always many things happened since the last announcements. And we have the brilliant Bert Jedburgh to bring us home with the October winners machinima! Iono Allen in the original UWA 3D Art & Design Challenge series. 300,000 MachininUWA IV: Art of the Artists. The most recent submissions for this have come from Persephone Requiem & Daki Aries, with NicoleX Moonwall submitting a jaw dropping 16 machinima each based on a different artwork! The total number of entries now stands at 54, eclipsing the 50 we had from machinimUWA III. The challenge here is to create a machinima that features some (or one) of the artworks submitted to the UWA 3D Open Art Challenge. You can choose to film as many (or as few) as you like, and you may submit any number of entries.
The theme is wide open, only the subject matter is fixed in that it must have been exhibited at some point for the UWA 3D Open Art Challenge. This is a tribute to all of you, the wonderful 3D artists who have created all the masterful works that surround you now. Under a fortnight remaining before the 10th of November closing date, so do encourage any colleagues of yours who create machinima to work with you and your creations. Also, the UWA 3D Open Art Challenge Gallery has been the venue for part of a 2nd Year Humanities and Culture Course, “In Other Worlds: Art and Artists in 3D Multi-User Environments” at York University, Toronto, Canada. Rasaec (RL: Lecturer C.Steele), is teaching the course to 30 students through December. UWA have been and will be assisting York University by serving as a conduit between the students and artists. I knwo some of the students have already contacted a number of you, and I hope to receive the assignments they write.
