Grand Master Award
Character in Repose
Character in Action
Mechanical / Still Life
Visual Effect
In addition to showcasing the world’s best digital art, the EXPOSÉ AWARDS will honor the best artists in a diverse range of categories and styles.

The EXPOSÉ AWARDS celebrate the highest artistic achievement in a diverse range of categories and styles. The award recipients will demonstrate the astounding fusion of artistic and technical excellence that the explosion of digital tools opens up to the modern artist.
Grand Master Award - Grand Master recognition may also be given for any category if there is an outstanding entry that warrants this highest level of recognition. The editors and jury may also bestow Grand Master awards for artists that have demonstrated an outstanding skill and contribution to the advancement of digital art in any area or style. Award Winner >
Character in Repose - Recognizes the greatest talent in bringing a character to life. This is independent of style or of the organic or mechanical nature of the character. The defining criterion is the ability the artist demonstrates in bringing the subject to life. This encompasses technical skill, believability, composition and, perhaps most of all, emotion. Award Winners >
Character in Action - Honors the highest achievement in capturing a character in action. This category celebrates the artist that best captures the sheer power, energy and elegance of a character in motion. Although many digital artists aspire to create animations that come to life, it is a rare talent to capture expressive motion frozen in a moment in time. Award Winners >
Mechanical / Still Life - Celebrates the best device or part of a device. This category is highly dependant on the artist’s ability to demonstrate an excellence in technical design and execution. This includes both the intricacy of subject design and the technical excellence of modeling, texturing, lighting, illustration. Award Winners >
Architectural - Awards the best architectural visualization. This is independent of style or setting. The defining criterion here is the artist’s ability to create an image that is not just believable but is inspirational, and in particular, evokes a desire to visit the location, building, space. Award Winners >
Environment - Recognizes the best set or location. This could be indoors, outdoors, underwater, in space – wherever. Here the artist’s ability to evoke a sense of wonder and a wish to see more is paramount. This category demands a combination of artistic interpret-ation, detail, and lighting to create a believable and enticing (or evocative) environment. Award Winners >
Visual Effect - Honoring the most spectacular visual effects. This diverse and challenging category celebrates the combination of artistic interpretation with sheer technical excellence. The subject matter may be anything from flowing water, to sand storms, to a star field or perhaps a spectacular atmospheric or lighting effect. Award Winners >
Transport - Awards the best device for moving about in. Whether chrome space ship, or classical Venetian gondola, machine of war, exotic vehicle or animal to be ridden, this category seeks out the best images of transportation. The defining quality sought after here is the artist’s ability to capture and evoke the desire to travel to a place, or by a mode of transport or to travel in a particular way. Award Winners >
