Palais de Tokyo and Orange are teaming up to promote the 3D technic in the art world
In 2013, this international event is an opportunity for young artists under 35 years of age to practice or learn about an innovative and emerging creative technique, and for the public to discover a new aspect of this technology.

No specific knowledge about 3D is required, the projects will be selected for their artistic qualities. The Master Class and professionals will help the candidates for the production of their piece of art and teach them everything they need.
