CG Student Awards - Entries by May 20 '12

Postby Charles » Mon Mar 05, 2012 2:14 pm

We are now accepting submissions for the 2012 CG Student Awards.

The event is split into three categories:

Student of the Year, Studio Internships, People’s Choice. There is a prize pool of over $100,000USD and ten (10) Studio Internships.

The deadline for submissions is 20th May, 2012. Winners announced 1st June, 2012.

The CG Student Awards has an extensive list of high profile companies sponsoring the event. Our five platinum sponsors include Autodesk, Ballistic, Conceptshare, Digital-tutors, and Next Limit Technologies. Other notable industry sponsors include: Pixologic, NVIDIA, Adobe, The Foundry, Stash Media, Side Effects Software, Smith Micro, and 3D Artist Magazine.

Leading production studios Double Negative, MPC, Framestore, Prime Focus, The Mill, and BlueBolt are also offering 10 professional internships throughout Europe, Canada, USA, and India. Each studio offers slightly different internships, but an internship winner can expect to receive 2-4 month professional experience, support and guidance from industry leading experts, standard intern salary, and an amazing opportunity to network and prove your skills.

“We've been amazed by the quality of our interns we picked up from the CG Student Awards. During their time with us, the interns gained the respect of our senior crew members and made a tremendous contribution to the lighting, fx, rigging, modelling and texturing of all our current movies” said Karl Wickens, Co Head of 3D Double Negative.

"I never really thought I would win the title of Student of the Year. It opened the door for me into the visual effects industry. After the Internship at Framestore, they hired me straight away" said Maximilian - Gordon Vogt.

"This opportunity changed my life and I now find myself rigging on major blockbuster movies, a dream come true" said Elliot Stammers.

Good luck to everyone!
