Submit your on-line 3D works to WEB3DART 2003, for inclusion in an
exhibition of completely new works created by internationally regarded
artists, architects, designers, students and creative 3D developers. The
selection will showcase the foremost ideas and independent creations in all
on-line 3D formats. Submission form is available at:

WEB3DART 2003- the official Web 3D Art Show, will premiere at the The 8th
International Conference on 3D Web Technology in St. Malo, France, 9 - 12
March, 2003. Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and the Web 3D Consortium, and this
year in cooperation with INRIA and Eurographics, the symposium is the most
important venue for 3D creators, and all those devoted to the virtual 3D
on-line environment. For more information:  http://www.web3d.org/s2003/

The selected works for WEB3DART 2003 will be featured on-line, and as a
feature of Lab3D, an exhibition of virtual works in real space, that will
connect the public with media and art spaces across the UK and
internationally (beginning with a presentation in Vienna at
MedienQuartier21). The gallery show will present artists interactive
installation works, and a symposium will raise issues around 3D and new
media practice.  Dates:  9 May - 22 June, 2003, coordinated by Cornerhouse,
Manchester. http://www.cornerhouse.org

The outstanding success of the 1999 VRML ART show in Paderborne; the 2000
VRML-ART Expo at the SIGGRAPH ART SHOW in New Orleans, and WEB3D ART 2002 at
