"A Brief History of This Contest
Three times previously, in 2006, 2007 and 2009, we have organized a contest and subsequent exhibition celebrating fractal art. Each time, Benoit Mandelbrot was our honorary president and he was pleased to lend his name to our efforts.
On October 14, 2010 Benoit Mandelbrot passed away. For decades he furthered our knowledge of mathematics and inspired others to do the same. This contest is dedicated to his memory. His enthusiasm for this project will be missed and his shoes are impossible to fill, but Aliette Mandelbrot and Michael Barnsley have agreed to be our honorary presidents for this edition of the contest.
Our medium—fractal art—is a small part of all that has come from Mandelbrot’s work. Let’s celebrate the amazing and unexpected things that can come from mathematics.
