Los Angeles, CA, USA (January 12, 2016) – Today, the Visual Effects Society (VES), the industry’s professional global honorary society, announced the nominees for the 14th Annual VES Awards, the prestigious yearly celebration that recognizes outstanding visual effects artistry and innovation in film, animation, television, commercials and video games and the VFX supervisors, VFX producers and hands-on artists who bring this work to life. Nominees were selected by VES members via events hosted by its nine sections – Australia, Bay Area, London, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, New Zealand, Toronto and Vancouver. The VES Awards will be held on February 2nd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
As previously announced, the Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to award-winning director-producer Sir Ridley Scott. The Visionary Award will be presented to acclaimed visual futurist and conceptual artist Syd Mead.
“The artistry, ingenuity and passion of visual effects practitioners around the world have come together to create truly remarkable imagery in a variety of media,” said Mike Chambers, VES Chair. “We are seeing best in field work that elevates the art of storytelling and engages the audience in new and innovative ways. The VES Awards is the only venue that showcases and honors these outstanding artists across a wide range of disciplines, and we are extremely proud of all our nominees!”
A Special Venue Project is defined by the location at which the material is shown. Special Venues are locations such as theme parks, large-format theaters, museums, galleries, outdoor sites, or live theatres, but not standard movie theaters, homes, or personal viewing devices. Projects must be specifically created for that venue; repurposed projects do not qualify. One-time projects (e.g., opening/closing ceremonies at the Olympics) are eligible in this category, as are Virtual Reality projects for Special Venues. Demonstration, pre-release, or trade show projects are not eligible for the VES Awards.
Special Venue Projects may be Photoreal or Animated, interactive or linear, and 2D or 3D; but the Work to Be Considered and Before & Afters must be submitted as 2D, linear, and with the correct specifications.
