Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize
ikonaut and Kent A. Stevens have won the renowned Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize in the National Geographic Digital Modeling and Animation category.
This prize is awarded annually by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology in North America.
‘The John J. Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize was created to recognize outstanding achievement in paleontological scientific illustration and naturalistic art. 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.’
