EVENTS
Web3D Roundup
A long-time favorite event at the Web3D Symposium and SIGGRAPH is the Roundup... Get your cow moo-ers ready!  Jiggle your squeaky-zigs! 

We picked most of the winners, though some hit cross-over categories from our votes...

Let the fun begin!

Don't forget to browse through our choice of great demos!

VRML ART 
Some of the most compelling new media experiences was on display at the Second Annual VRML-Art show... The second international, juried art exhibit for online 3D media demonstrated a true, innovative vitality to the medium, a maturity to the technology, and the artist's ingenuity. Read - some COOL STUFF!!! 

A number of these works were nominated for the next VirtuPortal, so watch out for 3DEZine Issue 2
