Lucasfilm and HP Launch New 'Star Wars' Art Contest 'Art Awakens'
Artists everywhere, this is your moment to shine. Lucasfilm and HP have launched a new Star Wars art contest called Art Awakens. The contest runs for two months nationwide and is a fan-art competition in promotion of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in theaters this December. Amateur artists can submit their Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired art on ArtAwakens.com for a chance to be featured in an upcoming professional art exhibit later in the year. As a tease of what's to come at the actual exhibit, two pieces of art (by DKNG and Mark Englert) have been unveiled and can be seen below. They're already accepting entries.
Check out some of the art submitted already at ArtAwakens.com or submit your own work there, too. The contest launched on August 11th. Five lucky winners will have their art shown in the gallery this November.
From the info at StarWars.com: "Coming this November to Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is a three-day Star Wars: The Force Awakens art exhibit featuring top professional and emerging contemporary artists. All new original pieces will be auctioned off in the name of Star Wars: Force for Change to benefit UNICEF Kid Power, which gives kids the power to save lives. Five lucky winners of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Fan Art Contest, chosen by a judging committee that includes members from Disney, Lucasfilm and the legendary visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic, will have their art featured in the professional gallery exhibit. The winners will also have the opportunity to be flown out to Los Angeles to attend the VIP opening night, among other prizes from HP." I'm sure it's going to be amazing. Let us know if you submit.
Super contrast-y, cell shaded stuff? No surprise there. I kind of want to see something different. Maybe something epic, like the original (IV) poster. But what do I know. I am not an artist and would never pretend to be one.

How do these guys get to have their stuff officially out there, which isn't great, when more talented artists design things and get crushed by Disney for copyright.
