The Society is accepting entries from the professional 3D and advanced imaging communities to be voted upon by a blue-ribbon technology awards panel.

"We should never underestimate the important role technology plays in how we tell stories, in all forms - whether in 3D, in high-resolution, on film, or by the light of a campfire. We are excited to honor the best achievements in technological evolution in 3D and Advanced Imaging technologies this fall. There are no shortage of improvements on existing technologies or brand new innovations coming into the marketplace deserving of special recognition by the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society," said Society Awards Chairman, Buzz Hays.

This year marks the Society's fifth annual Awards to celebrate new products and technologies in 3D and advanced imaging industries. The Society annually awards its gold Lumiere™ statuette for the best 3D movies, television, commercials, and video games each February in its "Creative Arts Awards."
