Blender and Sintel win 3D World Magazine CG Awards

Both Blender and Sintel have won Awards from 3D Worlds annual CG Awards. Blender picked up the award for Software Update of the Year, and Sintel won for Best Short CG Animation of the Year (Short Form). Congratulations to everyone involved!

Ton’s response to Blender winning the Software Update of the Year Award:

We’ve had many compliments for delivering this UI and tools redesign project. It’s been a huge task – over three years of work – something free or open-source projects typically are advised to never even attempt! An official recognition from 3D World readers means a lot to us: thanks!
