Our friends at 3D World have been in touch to say that the voting has just opened in their brand new CG Awards.
Unlike most other industry awards, while the shortlist in each of the 14 categories was selected by a judging panel, the winners are determined by the public vote.
In the Creative section of the awards, categories span visual effects, animation, architectural visualisation and games, and the shortlist includes a lot of work that will be familiar to regular CG Channel readers.
But more unusually, the awards also include five Technology categories, including new application, software update and plug-in of the year; and two innovation awards.
We don’t want to skew the voting by mentioning individual products, but there are some interesting nominees in these categories: if you visit the site, we think you’ll find some of your own technology heroes.
