The John Peddie Tech Watch is a renowned report on the graphics industry. After having tracked Blender and Ton Roosendaal for years, they have now awarded him their Jpr Technology Advancement Award.
Jon Peddie Research has followed the evolution of the Blender software portfolio, the creation of the Blender Foundation and Blender Institute, and most recently the Blender Animation Studio, which is working on its first feature, Agent 327: Operation Barbershop.
Over the years we’ve gone from skeptical indulgence to open admiration as we’ve come to understand how someone, with a true commitment to cooperation, collaboration, and respect for the work of others, can build a thriving organization around free software and open project development.
We are proud to recognize Ton Roosendaal and the Blender Community with our Technology Advancement Award for 2019.
