With sincere apologies for the delay, NVIDIA is pleased to announce the results of the Spring Photo Contest. We received more than 80 submissions from 3DVisionLive members and, for the first time, invited the membership to select the winner.
The only criteria for the contest was the photos had to represent the meaning of Spring in some fashion, and be an original image created by the member that submitted it. All submitted photos were put in a gallery and ample time was provided for members to vote for their favorite by designating images they liked the best as "favorites". When all was said and done, more than 140 votes were cast.
Without further ado, we unveil our winning entry, "Blue Bell Wood", which was submitted by one of our more active - and popular - members, Media3D (or "Stuart"). We invite Stuart to tell us more about how this image was created, and his inspiration behind it, in the comment field below. Congratulations Stuart - thank-you for your frequent contributions and comments on the site, we look forward to seeing more of your work in the future. Enjoy your $100 gift card and extra set of 3D Vision 2 glasses!

We are fortunate to receive regular quality contributions from our membership, which was evidenced by the close voting seen in our contest gallery. We are grateful to all who participated in the contest, either by submitting images or voting (or both); and we would like to give "Honorable Mentions" to the following images as well.

Another frequent, and very popular contributor, LudvikXIV has won past image contests on the site and had several extremely compelling submissions for this event, which should come as no surprise to those familiar with his work.
