I found this website about 6 months ago and was intrigued by the quality and variety of work of the artists. The Winter 2011 Showcase is currently accepting submissions until December 15, 2011. There is a $5 entry fee, but for the exposure and possibility of getting the $1000 judged prize, it may very well be worth it.
I personally have not submitted any work to the site… yet. Once a few things clear up, I think I may be sending some work in for consideration.
Creative Divergents is a few things: an online showcase, a competition, an experiment, a creative networking site… Some of the things it has been founded on include an appreciation for people willing to push boundaries in creative ways, the desire to bring more attention to works that may not fit neatly into easily defined categories, a belief in the significance of dialogue, and an effort to make participation accessible by not asking you to pay an arm and a leg for the chance to possibly maybe have your work seen.
The annual Cut & Paste competition starts on October 20 in San Francisco and visits 11 cities across the globe searching for the best graphic designers, animators and motion graphics artists. Using a unique time-focused system… contestants only receive a short amount of time and limited resources to complete a project. This is, without a doubt, a serious digital design battle!
Through events and online programs, Cut&Paste works to increase relationships between emerging designers, creative companies and media. Our mission is to help designers be better understood for better opportunity. Born in New York City in November 2005, Cut&Paste’s signature event is the Digital Design Tournament, a live, competitive showcase held throughout the world each year. Cut&Paste additionally powers design-driven contests and events with industry partners worldwide.
While I won’t be able to participate in this round, I would like to make an attempt to qualify in upcoming years. This sounds like a great way to make an instant impact on the alternative design community.
Noticed this earlier today and thought it was a great idea and wanted to share it. I’ve been making beats, sounds, samples, etc… for over two decades – so I think it may be time to submit some material to something like this!
The Stussy Make Beats Contest is about the fun of modern music making. Whether you’re a beat-maker, rapper, DJ or listener, this contest combines the creative aspect of making music with the fan’s point of view all tied together with some fresh tees and hats. The contest will be judged by Stussy, Low End Theory and Swedish synthesizer company, Teenage Engineering, who produced a new drum machine/synthesizer called the OP-1. In the music world today, it’s rare for a company to develop a piece of hardware, because most people use their computer to make beats. The OP-1 brings it back to the days of drum machines like the 808, when making beats meant banging them out on a machine. The Make Beats contest will start on 8/31/11 and invites the public to upload their own original tracks (made on any machine/computer) via the Stussy Make Beats Drop Box on Soundcloud. Send us your beats!!!
A brand new online magazine is on the horizon and they are currently ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS. I don’t know too much about this project, but from everything I’ve read, they seem quite aggressive at getting the word out.
I currently have 5 pieces submitted and hopefully they will be accepted. Guess we’ll have to see.
