    Default Phase 3 Winners Announced at SIGGRAPH

    Hi everyone, we just distributed the announcement below. Congrats to all!

    -----
    Epic Games Announces Phase 3 Winners in the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest

    Top projects in million-dollar “Unreal Tournament 3” mod contest revealed at SIGGRAPH 2009

    NEW ORLEANS – August 4, 2009 – Epic Games, Inc. today announced Phase 3 winners in its $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest. The competition rewards outstanding mods created for the “Unreal Tournament 3” PC game in four preliminary phases and a grand final judging. In this portion of the judging alone, over $100,000 in cash and hardware prizes will be distributed to mod authors who have placed first through fifth place in Phase 3 contest categories.

    “The Phase 3 entries in the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest demonstrate tremendous innovation and creativity,” said Elliot Garbus, vice president Intel Software and Services Group, general manager Visual Computing Software Division. “Through Intel’s Visual Adrenaline developer program, we continue to encourage software innovation in PC gaming by sponsoring contests such as this, as well as delivering the parallel programming tools and resources developers need to get the most out of Intel processors and platforms.”

    A special selection of original mods created for the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest are being showcased in Intel’s theater at SIGGRAPH 2009 this week in New Orleans.

    Lenovo is the exclusive hardware sponsor for Phase 3 of the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest. In addition to cash prizes awarded by Intel and Epic, Lenovo is providing HD monitors and high-performance workstations featuring Intelģ Core™2 Extreme and Intelģ Xeonģ 5500 series processors and monitors to mod creators winning top honors in select categories. Each winner of a Lenovo workstation will also receive a license for Intelģ Parallel Studio, the end-to-end product suite for parallelism.

    "Like Unreal Engine 3, Lenovo ThinkStation and ThinkPad W-Series workstations are about unleashing the creative potential in our users," said Tom Tobul, executive director, Enterprise Systems, Software and Peripherals, Lenovo. "ThinkStations are the hardware of choice for game development at Epic Games, and now contest winners will have the same performance tools to create content like the pros."

    To view Phase 3 hardware prizes, visit www.makesomethingunreal.com/phase3_hardware.aspx. For more information on Intelģ Parallel Studio, visit http://software.intel.com/en-us/inte...l-studio-home/.

    “We’re amazed by the high quality and variety of the latest round of UT3 mods,” said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, Inc. “The bar for gameplay and visuals is raised with each phase of the contest, and it’s apparent that the Unreal mod teams have spent a tremendous amount of time honing their projects. There’s everything from puzzle games to platformers to machinima, and we can’t thank these talented developers enough for their hard work.”

    Congratulations to everyone! And the Sanctum team are very pleased with a fourth place in Best-FPS. Specially after having only spent about 6-7 weeks on the mod up to that point. I hope we'll manage to blow some minds in phase 4.

    Congratulations to all and thanks Epic for this opportunity, you are the best.
    I learned a lot here with you guys. And I want to learn much more.

    I'm really happy with the second place in Best New Character / Customization Pack. Nolan and Arn did a great job.

    Again, congratulations to everybody and let's keep moving.

    Amazing work! There were some really tough calls in there, can't tell you how many times we sat down and argued about things. And if you can get the judges that worked up, that's a great thing!

    There's content in there that I've even gone back to and looked at or played many times over, independent of the contest. Keep it coming.

    Congrats to everyone who entered, and props to the winners!

    You guys need to do a "BEHIND-THE-SCENES" so we can see what really goes on during this contest on your end. It would be entertaining and just fun to see that side of the MSUC for once.

    I second this! (or fourth, whatever we're up to now). I would love to know what about each mod the judges liked and didn't. Even if a video isn't possible a simple list would do.

    This was a great round though! I wasn't expecting to do as well as I did. Congrats to all the other winners and good luck next round!

    Btw, I would be interested in seeing pictures or a video of the display there at siggraph. Has anyone taken any or would be willing to take some pics?
