Adobe Co-Sponsors Creative Cloud Art Competition!

In recognition of the wide range of artistic options offered to their users, Adobe is hosting an art competition as part of the BostonFIG Art Exhibit. Judged by an all-star panel of art directors from Boston-area game studios such as Harmonix, Proletariat and Firehose Games, artists are encouraged to submit their original game-related artwork, created using any of the tools currently available in Creative Cloud, including Photoshop and Illustrator. The top three art competition winners will receive a 6-month Creative Cloud membership, plus other great prizes to help digital artists perfect and perform their craft. Artists are welcome to submit their original artwork for either the main art exhibit, or for the competitive category, by August 30. Sign up here!

The BostonFIG Art Exhibit is proud to support game artists again this year as part of the Boston Festival of Indie Games. Last year, we had more than 40 different art pieces displayed from artists working on games such as Girls Like Robots, Go Go Xylo, StarDriver and Fieldrunners 2.

This years’ show will feature separate categories for both professional artists and up-and-coming student artists who are interested in breaking into the game industry. Submitting to the exhibit is a wonderful opportunity to show off your artistic talents and personal gaming projects 8118008420_44edf56fde_oto a huge audience; we had over 1,000 attendees at the festival last year with representatives from many game studios among them!

The BostonFIG Art Exhibit encourages both physical and digital pieces of all kinds. We invite you to submit anything you’ve made – from concept art for that game you’ve been wanting to create to that pinata you made for your company’s first year in production to those 3D character animation tests you’re making right now. Everything is welcome! Additionally, anyone that can’t make it out to Cambridge can always submit digital images to be displayed in our giant artist slideshow, which will be running all day front and center in the gallery itself.
