The 2012 VIEW AWARD’s are ready to come out in full! Breaking free from its international tradition, the 2012 VIEW AWARD’s are opening up their doors to new themes, subjects, and a wider audience of contestants!
The VIEW AWARD is promoted by VIEW Conference, the premiere international event in Italy on Computer Graphics, Interactive Techniques, Digital Cinema, Medical Imaging, 3D Animation, Gaming and VFX.
VIEW 2012, from 16th to 19th October in Torino, will continue to focus on exploring the increasingly fluid boundary between real and digital worlds. Through lectures, meetings, tributes, exhibits, screenings and demo presentations VIEW will reveal the new digital frontier sweeping from cinema to architecture, from automotive design to advertisement, from medicine to videogames.
Here’s the four categories of the 2012 VIEW AWARD:
