Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.

Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.

Im curious...with so many long time contributors and artists on renderosity, what is the protocol for choosing any particular AOM candidate? Is it recommendations? Number of postings per year by an artist? Random? Good work by all of these artists.

Hi razzell2, I copied this from the AOM link on the side bar. I think it will help shed light on how this process works: How are nominees for AOM selected? Members who participate in a selected gallery are nominated by our Moderators, and Admins. Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by the site team and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year. Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year and they are recognized during that month. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What criteria do the Mods/Admins use to select their nominations? They are asked to take into consideration the following criteria: An AOM nominee should have in their gallery a body of work that is created using the software/genre for the month in question. There should be more than just a sprinkling of that type of image, demonstrating a good foundation in and mastery of the software/genre. Several elements should be balanced and considered when selecting a nominee -- things like technical expertise, mood, message, design and content should be taken into consideration. The nominee's gallery should have fairly recent postings to it. (There are quite a few members who are no longer active and therefore no longer available for the follow up interview.) An artist can only be AOM for one time during the year. Those artists who have won this title during the past five years will not be included in the voting for a new AOM. Coordinators [as they are volunteers] will be eligible for AOM nomination for 2006 AOM, and, are no longer part of the AOM selection process. Moderators, and Admins are not eligible for Artist of the Month!

what to said about to be here.. hum.. I feel stressed!!! (lollllll).. I've a lots of little "awards" (comments with the pic).. that is sufficient for me and that help me to feel not so alone.. by the way, I propose ALL winners.. the most people here work hard, share, comment with class and each of them are a inspiration for many others.. this web place look as a school where we learn together... hum.. that is too serious (loll).. hey! ..I've fun to be passionate and to be there.. If one day I'm selected for "AOM", think about that I will need to relax with a "Vodka" drink (and my doctor don't like that.. loll)... nice day to all and good luck if you are stressed too (loll)..

"The nominee's gallery should have fairly recent postings to it." I guess 'fairly recent' is subjective.Personally,for me,I think anyone nominated should be an active participant in the photography community and have posted to their gallery at least once in the last month or so,(barring illness,etc.).It just doesn't seem fair to me that someone who hasn't uploaded in over a quarter of a year is being nominated,when there are other equally talented artists who contribute more to the gallery and the community as a whole.JMHO.
