The Generosity that is Renderosity
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 17, 2007 - Renderosity announced today that in honor of their Digital Art Community's brand new site design and updated logo they are awarding more than 516,000 current Renderosity members with a $5.00 Renderosity Reward, giving $2,580,000.00 to the community.
Every two years, the Renderosity Artist Community hosts a community wide graphics contest to find a new look that best represents this creative community. The winner of the 2007 Renderosity Graphics Contest was Janne Pitkänen [ToxicAngel].
Janne Pitkänen has been a long time member of Renderosity and has received numerous awards and recognition for his work, including 2002 Artist of the Month, 2002 Renderosity Artist of the Year, Art Charts Favorite Artist, Art Charts Favorite Image, Featured Artist on the Best of Renderosity DVD. Having also won the 2001 Renderosity Graphics Contest, Janne is the only artist to be selected twice to represent this diverse and dynamic digital art community.
"Holy smoke! I didn't think that I'd stand a chance," said Janne Pitkänen after being notified he had won. "I'm delighted that the community liked it."
Renderosity was created by artists, for artists and provides a productive environment that encourages an atmosphere of community, respect, collaboration, and growth for graphic artists, digital artists, animators, photographers and writers of all backgrounds and levels. The community is made up of members who have a passion for helping others learn, share and grow in digital art and is considered "home" by thousands of creative individuals.
The community's desire to share and help each other have contributed heavily to Renderosity's phenomenal growth from a hand-full of members in 1998 to over 513,000 members today.
"The success of Renderosity is a reflection of each of the members. It is because we continue to come together to help one another grow as individuals that we have also grown as a community." said Jenifer Carey, VP of the Renderosity division of Bondware. "The members have made Renderosity what it is today, and we would like to recognize every single member by providing each and every one of them with $5.00 credit as a token of our appreciation."
