    POVCOMP 2004 3D Graphics Contest Winners Announcement
    Thursday February 17 2005 @ 09:30PM EST

    Milpitas, CA - February 17, 2005 - and would like to thank their sponsors Appro, AMD, Zazzle, and Planet Mirror for making the POVCOMP 2004 3D Graphics competition possible. We also thank our judges Dennis Miller, Evan Hallein, David Hook, Gilles Tran, Lance Birch and Juha ('Warp') Nieminen for taking time out of their busy schedules over the past two weeks to rank the entries.

    We would like to congratulate Johnny Yip for taking first place with his excellent entry 'The Last Guardian'. Apart from its wonderful ambience, it is a superb use of POV-Ray for modeling. The entire source is only 75kb zipped (300kb uncompressed) and is available for download from

    Johnny wins a superb Appro dual Opteron workstation valued at $10,000. APPRO's,, High-performance Workstation is ideal for running such CPU-intensive applications as POV-Ray. The brand new Appro Scorpion WH300 Dual Processor workstation comes with two 19" LCD Monitor, a NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 video card, eight GB of ECC DDR RAM and one terabyte of storage loaded with RedHat Enterprise Linux.

    The Second place winner is Jaime Vives Piqueres with his photorealistic entry titled 'The Kitchen'. Jaime now has the task of selecting $2,500 worth of goods from as he is the winner of a Zazzle shopping spree! Zazzle is a unique user-to-user creative marketplace based on the WWW, where folks can buy and sell custom products such as posters, prints, cards and apparel. The top 25 images will be made available in poster form from Zazzle in the near future.

    Third place goes to Ziga Petric (a.k.a. 'Newt') for his futuristic nano-vision 'Dissolution'. Ziga will join Jaime browsing Zazzle's virtual aisles as the winner of a $1,000 zazzle shopping spree.

    Fourth place is a tie between two images. Zazzle graciously agreed to provide the same prize to both entrants. Both Douglas Eichenberg and Rene Bui will receive a Zazzle colossal poster for their entries. Douglas submitted a surreal rendering titled 'Victoria's World', which impressed the judges with its level of detail. Rene submitted a detailed and artistic take on Jan Vermeer's 'Girl With A Pearl Earring' entitled 'Twin Girls With A Pearl Earring'.

    Fifth place was not awarded given the dual fourth place mentioned above.

    The full list of primary places is given below.

    We would like to thank all entrants for their effort and time. We hope that you all enjoy browsing the excellent contributions to POVCOMP 2004.
