The first annual ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show took place on Saturday, May 25th, 2002 at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.

The show was a great success! We had a terrific audience turn out (about 600 people!), all of the bots survived the arduous six hour event, and everyone had a nice time.

Although ArtBots is a robot talent show, that's not the real focus of the event; we think all of the participants deserve a prize! But we did have a vote, and here are the results:

The winner of the first annual ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show People's Choice Award is: David Webber and AO2000.

The winner of the first annual ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show Robots' Choice Award is: Stefan Prosky and SYMET Studio.

Congratulations to David and Stefan and all of the ArtBots Participants!
