Scribbled Arrow

Jason Allen, president of Incarnate Games, recently won first place in the digital art contest; 

However, artists on Twitter are in an angry mood about the award. Let's see why

The reason is that the piece of art that earned the first prize was made with the help of AI (artificial intelligence).

As per a report by Vice, the incident involved Allen winning the Colorado State Fair competition under the Digital Arts / Digitally-Manipulated Photography section,

And flaunting his win on Discord, following which Allen received a lot of criticism. 

The work was titled "Theatre Opera Spatial". It was made using AI Mid journey software, based on Allen's suggestions.
