We are excited to announce that we are teaming up with The Rookies again this year!

Submissions for the 2018 edition of the student awards are now open.

What is The Rookies you ask?

The Rookies, sponsored by Autodesk, is an annual global competition and mentor platform open to young creatives in film, animation, games, virtual reality, motion graphics, and 3D visualization.

For students, The Rookies offers them a “stamp of approval” as they transition from school to production, enabling them to have their work seen, graded and commented on by industry heavyweights. For studios and recruiters, The Rookies is the place to find outstanding emerging talent.

“Young talent inspires us and along with The Rookies, we’re excited to support the great animation, gaming, visual effects, digital art, and virtual reality content the next generation of creative professionals are creating,”

- Amy Bunszel, SVP of Design & Creation Products, Autodesk
