The FIRST two Train2game students going for the awards and we expect more to follow

Ian Green and Tomasz Figas have entered their work into the CG Student Awards. We wish them all the luck in the world and hope the student community will join us in voting for them to win.

We featured the CG Student awards on the Train2Game blog recently, in an interview with one of the creators of the awards, Alwyn Hunt. The organisation specifically requested Train2Game students join in the competition, and we hope that more of the community will be entering their work to be judged by the wider industry.

The CG Student Awards are an annual independent event created by Games Developers, which showcase and reward excellence in computer graphics from students and recent graduates.

The Awards strive to create a platform for all aspiring digital artists to launch their careers, network with professionals, and connect with other passionate digital artists from around the world. The Awards are a chance to reward those studying Art while putting them in the spotlight of employers. 

This year there are over £240,000 in prizes available and twenty five paid internships, at companies including: Weta Digital, Epic Games, Moving Picture Company, and Double Negative. All entries to the competition receive an incredible software package worth £65. Entries also receive an industry approved rank for their submission and feedback from judges on their entry.

Best of luck everyone, please let us know if you are entering and we will highlight your work to the Train2Game community.
