Into The Pixel 2011 Winners Announced: Check Out The Artwork

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and the Entertainment Software Association puts together a jury of experts each year who select video game artwork to be a part of Into the Pixel. Today, they are announcing 17 works that will become a part of this installation that will travel around the world, beginning at E3 2011, which you can check out right here.

"Now that public institutions have accepted video games as a legitimate form of art, there is no question that video game art has and will continue to have a place in the contemporary art scene," said Martin Rae, president of the AIAS, thereby thumbing his nose at Roger Ebert. When you see these pieces of work up close, either on the screen or in a gallery, there's no denying that a lot of artistic skill and love goes into these pieces, which include work from unreleased games like BioShock Infinite, Orcs Must Die!, Uncharted 3, and more.

Seeing is believing, so head after the break where you can take a look at all of the pieces that were selected, along with a list of the winners.

Into the Pixel winners are selected from a jury of their peers, and this year's judges were:

  • Glenn Phillips, Getty Research Institute, Senior Project Specialist & Consulting Curator, Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art
  • Nora Dolan - Independent Curator
  • Ryan Wilkerson, Microsoft Game Studios, Senior Art Director
  • Matt Hall, Timbuk2 Studios, Senior Partner Production Designer
  • Brian Moore, Microsoft Game Studios, Art Director

"Into the Pixel showcases the incredible creativity, skill and artistic talent that pervades in the video game industry. You really see that there are great artists working across every genre of video games, and at every stage of the production process.” said Glenn Phillips, Senior Project Specialist & Consulting Curator, Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art, at the Getty Research Institute.

The 2011 Into the Pixel collection will be unveiled and presented at the annual E3 Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 7-9, or you can visit our Into the Pixel 2011 gallery and check out all of the art for yourself. This year's winners are:
