ARISTIDE IN HARMONY AS FUSCHIA TAKES FOUR: WINNERS OF THE UWA 3D OPEN ART CHALLENGE (JULY)
Aristide Despres creation, 'Harmonies in C Great (+)' whose power exudes a sense of grandeur has taken the L$10,000 1st Prize for the July Round of the UWA 3D Open Art Challenge. Artee, as she is known, doubled the winnings as she also won the CARP Prize and the Nordan Art Prize. Fuschia Nightfire almost topped those winnings with 'Not Everything is Plain Black & White' by taking home 4 prizes and a total of L$17,500. She won Joint 2nd Prize, alongside June Clavenham & Gleman Jun, she also won the People's Choice Award as well as the Tornado Gallery and Pirats Group Prizes. Typote Beck with 'The Superheroes Breakfast' emulated a feat achieved only once before by taking out 3 Group Awards (Odyssey Prize, S&S Gallery OFA Prize & Project Z Prize). An unprecedented night saw yet another creation take 2 Group Awards with Miso Susanowa's 'Down on the Data Farm' also gaining direct entry to the Grand Finale winning both The Workhouse & Art place d-oo-b Prize and the Phi Designs Prize. The Non-Scripted Prize also resulted in a tie with RazorZs 'Tunnel With Light at the End of It' deadlocked with Corcosman Voom's 'Hurdle', while Toughlove Sabra won the Curator's prize with the deceptive and surprising 'Inside A Troubled Mind'.
