During the sim-party at Space 4 Art on last Sunday the winners of the SkullArtContest have been awarded. Two artists had to share the 1st prize with 1500L each: Samara Furse-Barzane with her socio-critical photo-collage "Genocides" and HOLALA Alter with his animated "SkullArtMuseum". The 2nd prize with 2000L received kayly Iali with her SL-version of the RL-painting "The Skull with Yellow Flower", where she uses the skull in the traditional way as a symbol of "vanitas". 500L each as a shared 3rd prize went to Eifachfilm Vacirca and Fafner Hofmann, who both had created expressive variations of the skull-topic. All participants, who did not win a prize, received 100L for their efforts. The contributions for art contests at Space 4 Art run through a sophisticated voting system with 5 judges and public voting. This guarantees a relative objectivity, but everybody should be aware, that objectivity in judgements on art can never be reached. Nevertheless: congratulations to the winners! The winning pieces are on display until end of the month February 2014 on the rooftop.
