go on and vote!

perhaps is there anyone who could provide a 3d printable artefact that could be printed on shapeways or somewhere to hand over to the winner wink a mandelbulb instead of the world like in the world cup soccer trophy, or somethin' alike!

It depends on time extents, yearly, all the time, or from the start of mandelbulb era (it's kind of age of aquarius).

Perhaps alsou Knighty with KIFS.

And M Benesi for newest version of old formula revesited. Maybe not the main prise but inclusion as "being oscar nominee is small prise".

Without Knighty I am lost! You must add him! cheesy
Also dainbramage makes very good images... Consider him! smiley
But it's weird to make this competition in the 1st place since we help each other. sad To me "win" over Jesse  is pointless, same with other users. We are a community like the MIT hackers smiley fighting for fractal freedom!
btw also Sam is a great coder, with a focus on dense fractals. smiley

  I wouldn't leave out Knighty.  Came up with some nice code.

  You might need to split into New Formulas, Lighting Implementations, Best Software, etc..

Everyone in this list is unique and brings his unique skills on the table. This is difficult to choose because, like Luca said, this is a collaborative melting pot approach, not a competition between all these talents.

From my perspective though that would be Jesse, because M3D has now probably become the program I spent the most time with in my entire life. Well, not speaking about my real job (that would be Outlook) and about video games cheesy

OK; lets talk about it, perhaps we should it do the other way round, because giving prizes to eachothers here is somehow meaningless,
lets change it:

WHO/WHAT EXTERNALLY ( A FIRM; A PERSON; A PROGRAM ) OF FRACTALFORUMS WOULD YOU NOMINATE THE OSCAR?

I Nominate The Universe!

It not only gave us fractals, it appears to embody the notion of Fractally Goodness in all it's aspects.

Without it, I doubt any of us would be here discussing this  whistling and rolling eyes

We already have annual art contests.  If images qualify anyone for this award, I would suggest that anyone who won one of these contests should be on the list.

Thanks Darkbeam, Alef and Benessi, That's too much honor!  embarrass

May I suggest other people:
- Twinbee and Bugman for the mandelbulb.
- Jos Leys for the distance estimation formula for the mandelbulb.

IMHO it should go to those who got the idea of -and developed- formula hybridation. No need to have only one winner (just like Nobel prize).

wow, being considered to be in that list within this people and seeing someone voted for me is more than enough! I honestly think I'm not at the height of the skills and talent of the people you included in the poll, but many thanks for considering me! Christian, maybe you mean that the prize is only for achievements during 2012? I think is the only explanation for other people like Twinbee not being included, right? Also I'm with Luca and bib, it's difficult to choose someone when everybody has it's unique skills and contributions, and is true that most of our works are based on the collaboration and previous works of others in different areas within the community. But giving recognition to people who gave the best contributions during the year is not bad at all, and a nice way of motivating members into doing greater things. Maybe if the recognition is more specific, with different categories, it could be easier to choose someone who stood out in that specific area during the year. Why don't use Johan's concept? "the mathematician, the programmer, and the artist"

In principle I agree with Luca. The big strength of this community is, that it IS a community of many different personalities, that all have the same aim. To bring fractals forwards. Everyone in his own way.
But at the moment I have a clear favorite - Kali. Besides some bad luck in the annual contest he created one of the most popular formulas at the time - amazing surface (basing on tglads great amazing box for sure) and he came up with some great fragmentarium scripts, that moved the possibilities of the naked program in a realy special way.
Like no other Kali combines the mathematical and artistic aspects of fractaling.

  Thanks Alef-   Wish more people had done stuff with that particular formula, especially since I ported it to Fragmentarium (nice work Mikael) with this in mind.

Many thanks Torsten, I'm honored. As I always say, none of the things I do could be possible without people like tglad, Sam monnier, syntopia, and others... not to mention Jesse and Luca for the implementation of some of my ideas in m3d.
This year I made some progress with GPU programming, I presented many ideas but I think I couldn't take full advantage of them in my works yet. Also I made public only a few scripts,  I have more awaiting to be polished and some issues to be resolved, I hope next year I'll find the time to do it... I still have a lot to learn and to give, and positive feedback is always a great source of motivation so thank you very much again.
