Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize
ikonaut wins together with Kent A. Stevens the Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize – National Geographic Digital Modeling and Animation.
«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.»
