Los Angeles, CA (May 11, 2016) --
Shotgun Software announced that they are now accepting entries for the third annual Pipeline Awards which recognize excellence in pipeline tool development, integration, engineering and usage. Award winners will be announced during the SIGGRAPH Conference, taking place July 24-28 in Anaheim, California.
"We were once again blown away by all the creative genius that went into creating the impossible on screen this last year," said Don Parker, co-founder of Shotgun and Autodesk senior director. "But behind every creative team is an incredible group of technologists and tool builders who absolutely deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated. It's our honor to recognize those individuals, teams and tools, regardless if they use Shotgun or not."
Shotgun community members are encouraged to submit innovative tools and individuals for consideration for Pipeline Awards. Nominations should be sent via email to Email Contact by June 20, 2016. Please include a description of the tool, development, or use case that most impressed you (whether or not it involves Shotgun), and/or a summary of what your pipeline hero has accomplished.
Last year's tool winners included EA Germany's Media Submit and Media Link tool, Omstudios' Adobe After Effects integration with Shotgun, and Milk VFX's Smart Publish notifications tool. The Framestore pipeline team and MPC's Hannes Ricklefs were honored with Hero Awards for their outstanding contributions to the industry.
