Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize
The John J. Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize was created in October 1999 to recognize outstanding achievement in paleontological scientific illustration and naturalistic art. Annual awards are supported through the generosity of PaleoArt collector John J. Lanzendorf. We are pleased to announce that the Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize is now supplemented by the National Geographic Digital Modeling and Animation Award. These are the only art awards presented by the scientific community that specifically recognize accomplishments in paleontological visualization.
PaleoArt is broadly defined as the scientific or naturalistic rendering of paleontological subject matter pertaining to vertebrate fossils. PaleoArt is one of the most important vehicles for communicating discoveries and data among paleontologists, and is critical to promulgating vertebrate paleontology across disciplines and to lay audiences.
Scientific Illustration: works that typically would be regarded as text-figures within the body of a scientific paper or as online supplementary material.
2-Dimensional Art: works that typically would NOT be regarded as text-figures within the body of a scientific paper or as online supplementary material.
3-Dimensional Art: works that exist in the 3D physical (not digital) realm (e.g., sculpture). National Geographic Digital Modeling and Animation Award: works, including animations, created in 3D digital programs.
