December 6, 2007 (Mountain View, CA) – Caligari Corporation, the producer of award-winning 3D modeling, rendering and animation software, today announced that a special contest will be held during the next Thursday Night Live! (TNL!) event where the $100 prize will be donated to a charity designated by the winner.
“We’re very pleased with the enthusiastic participation of our users in the Thursday Night Live! events,” said Roman Ormandy, CEO of Caligari Corporation. “Our users are extremely generous by donating their time and expertise to others in the group. At this special time of year, it’s fitting that we give back to our users as well as the community.”
This holiday Thursday Night Live! event will take place in Caligari’s TNL! 3D meeting space on December 13, 2007 at 5:00 pm PST. The event will begin with a contest to submit a 3D ornament, created with Caligari trueSpace3 or higher, to be placed on the community Christmas tree located in the middle of the 3D meeting space. The winner of the ornament contest will pick a charity of their choice to receive a $100 donation.
Following the ornament contest, Caligari CEO Roman Ormandy will give his personal review of 2007 as well as look ahead to what 2008 will bring for Caligari and the marketplace. Finally, the results of another contest, the Thursday Night Live! League, will be announced. The Thursday Night Live! League consists of Caligari users that have participated in TNL! events for the past 3 months and have been awarded points for participation. At the end of the holiday TNL! event, the participant with the most points will receive a year of proTeam (worth $895) and the second place winner will receive a $100 discount on any future Caligari purchase. Winners of all events will be posted on the Caligari web site.
