The jury of Virtual Diversity (the contest launched on Koinup.com to reward avatars’ originality), composed by Arco Rosca (aka Paolo Valente), Roxelo Babenco (aka Rosanna Galvani) and Lukemary Slade (aka Luca Spoldi), respectively the founders of Sabv.eu of Museo del Metaverso and of Mondivirtuali.it / SLnn.it, delivered its verdict awarded as overall winner Senban Babii for the work Senban (EVE Online) image that seemed to deserve a mention of the overall winner, as best expressed the theme of virtual diversity that can exist in different virtual worlds, and that the artist has illustrated with a short but nice text: “Born in Second Life, as Senban Babii grew older she went off-world and found her place among the stars of New Eden. One day she might return home but then what is there to go home for?”.
Almost an exequo , but the rules of the contest was not possible to explicitly declare the winning images that contain “even mild nude“, for Frieda Korda, with The Model, who is the “first among the equal” of the twenty runners up that Koinup.com and the jury above mentioned have considered worthy of reporting and I remember also to be: bobby with dome-3, Paola Mills with Onirix dream, Crystalship Rehula with Onyx, Chris Tower with Me, Soror Nishi with graphic skin finished, Steviec with Eastern Elegance……, Loquacia Loon with Lag, Mistero Hifeng with Il Matto, Qatesh Denja with DarkSide, CapCat with Mariana, VenK with Supernatural Blues, BotGirl with Brandification, Baroque with Madre Natura (Mother Nature), Harbor Galaxy with The Harpy, Aelin Quan with Chloe Gauntley, Shmoo Snook with Virtual Diversity, Vero1324 with Veronica, The Avatar, Nnoanna with Archlord/Terranoa and Lillian Shippe with Black Khepri with Butterfly.
The winner and the twenty runners up will see their works displayed in an exhibition that will be held in Second Life at the sim Benvolio by the art gallery Diabolicus Art Space of Laszlo Oerdoegh (aka Velasquaez Bonetto) and Josina Den Burger (aka Josina Burges), event that thanks to Stefano Lazzari (aka Stex Auer) will be broadcast in live streaming at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, during the presentation of the project 2Lifecast and its associates, only to be revived even at head quarter of Museo del Metaverso in Craft. Congratulations to everyone (we are pleased to note that many of the selected works belong to artists also reported by our Luciana Pinazzo on Mondivirtuali pages) and see you always on the pages of Mondivirtuali.it for an interview with the winner of the contest, Senban Babii.
