Underwater Smallmouth Bass in 3D wins Best of Show at 2011 ICAST

"Exploring Smallmouth", wins Best of Show Award for Best New Giftware Product at 2011 ICAST Show.
I'm thrilled to announce that my underwater image of a smallmouth bass produced as a 3D image by the 3-D Picture Store Inc. won a "Best in Show" Award-Giftware category at the 2011 ICAST Show in Las Vegas.  This is a pretty impressive honor and my partners at 3-D Picture Store are as thrilled as I am.  I think this recognition will help to generate widespread distribution for our entire line of amazing underwater fish pictures in 3-D.  Stay tuned for further updates.  To order this product or others in our line, visit 3-D Picture Store.com
