Cut&Paste, the Thunderdome for Designers, Begins on Friday

Two designers enter; one designer leaves! Two designers enter; one designer leaves!

On Friday, Cut&Paste will once again kick off its global Digital Design Tournament, which pits designers against each other in a battle of artistic talent and speed. The six-year-old DDT will begin on Oct. 28 in NYC and will eventually culminate in the world championships in March.

Participants compete in four different categories with varying time limits: 2D Design (15 minutes), 3D Design (20 minutes), 2D, 3D & Motion/Animation Format Commonalities (15 minutes, 20 minutes or eight hours) and Motion/Animation design (taking place the day before the competition). Prizes range from a design commission for the grand prize to, of course, simply the opportunity to network with some of the best and brightest in the art world.

The NYC showdown will kick off the competition and feature winners of qualifying rounds like Ray Wong, who created the above stamp design in only 15 minutes. Jurors for the NYC event include Barbarian Group co-founder/CEO Ben Palmer. For more information, videos and entry forms, visit Cut&Paste’s website here.
