🎉 These are the winners of the Best of Blender Artists 2022!

IT’S DONE! You have decided on the Best of Blender Artists 2022 and it is now my honor to present you the ‘winners’ of this year.

Huge congratulations to everyone who ended up in the top 5 of their category. Special congratulations to Jörg Grubmüller @joergsla) who made it into the top 5 of THREE different categories, an amazing achievement.

Everyone who made it to the top 5 will receive a ‘Best of Blender Artists 2022’ badge in their account (soon, I spent most of my day working on this ranking and it’s time for other things now first :wink:

Just a few notes about the selection process:

  • Some works were included in more than one category and ended up in the top 5 in more than one. If this happened, I only kept the highest scoring one and removed it from the other category top 5 to give other artists a chance too.
  • Some works received the same number of votes. To cut the tie, I used the number of likes on the original post to cut the tie.

On a final note, I do realize the category list was not exhaustive and will make sure to improve that next year.

Enjoy, and happy new year! :sparkler:

That’s a great honor for me, it really means a lot. Wandering in the 3d space, not being sure if what I do makes any kind of sense, it’s a huge push forward!
I’ll sure keep doing strange stuff and flood you guys with it :smiley:

And thanks a lot to the team for spending the time, on new year’s eve, and to contribute to artist’s promotion in one of the most honest and straight forward way I’ve seen. @bartv @josephhansen (those I know best)
