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?

In this case I would give 2 persons who should get the award:

1. Benoit Mandelbrot
2. Michael Barnsley

And some who I believe should be considered again from an external point of view though some are members, in no particular order and for various reasons:

Jos Leys, Frederik Slijkerman, Garth Thornton, Ron Barnett, J.C.Hart, Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz, Inigo Quilez

All things considered I'd also suggest Samuel Monnier, Andreas Lober, Klaus-Peter Kubik, Mark Townsend and Scott Draves.
The first three of these may only be known to devotees of Fractint and/or Ultra Fractal - Mark of course created the first versions of Apophysis and Scott Draves is credited with the original flame algorithm (and is the programmer behind the Electric Sheep project).

"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."

How about Gaston Maurice Julia?

If I voted, it would be for Jesse, Kali and Darkbeam.

Unfortunately that would exclude everyone else who made it possible for them to create the tools that I use.

My point of view as an end user. wink

yes, i agree to reward the first issue of this prize to mandelbrot or julia both as teams,
something more global out of the forums .... or twinbee/bugman ... or tglad ... or the implementors

but as a starter we could give out this prize to someone ... "virtual" ?

perhaps it makes up for a newsline in a (geek-)newspaper

Instead of an award/reward, how about a literary collaboration extolling the accomplishments of the mathematician, the programmer, and the artist in a historical fashion?
With lots of hyperlinks to relevant examples!

Something that would educate newcomers to the contributions of these people.
An example is Jos Leys for the distance estimation formula.
I did not know about this.
 
Once the collaboration is complete (if ever), it could be recommended reading for new members.

Maybe we should nominate Dr. Wisenheimer for making fractals more accessible via Chaos TV?

I Nominate The Universe!

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

Then I'll name this guy.


To alll. Don't get over sentimental. IMHO major reason for giving prize would be ta aknowledge and boost all new things to appear. Or maybe publicity. It's what you want to achieve. Publicity or to boost inovations.


Maybe Vladimir Bulatov for, well, maybe he could print something, more like inclusion in list of candidate as a small prise.

If you want outside, and all the times it would be Frederik Slijkerman, but that would be very outside of FF, but without Ultra Fractal this place would be much more quiet. Alsou if outside, IMHO Melinda Green should be noted for buddhabrot algorithm.

But then probably Twinbee should recieve Golden Mandelbulb. He started the search and started 3D era. There were quaternions back in Fractal Explorer (Artur Sirotinsky), but real 3D started with bulb.

I think, voting must include more of mentioned folks and should start from zero.

ok, about the name, intention of "noble or nobel oscar" is to unite those two prizes, but ... it is not apropriate i think, it should rather has something to do with the "holy grail" .... "knight of the grail" or something ....

The forum has four categories- 'Fractal Art', 'Fractal Software', 'Fractal Math Chaos Theory and Research' and 'Real World Examples & Fractical Applications'
You could award a prize for each category, an interview with them that appears at the top of each category for a year.
