Good with Photoshop and or 3DS Max? Got a hankering to homage your favorite game? The Pixel Collection wants your submissions. The ESA and Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences-led event celebrates high-quality contributions from video game fans.
More information about the event and submissions after the jump.
First off, here's the good word about the event from the ESA and the AIAS:
Created in 2004 by the Entertainment Software Association, ITP is an exploration and celebration of the art of video games from around the world. Into The Pixel features a representative sampling of video game art, selected by a panel of jurors from a field of submissions.
The jury is made up of industry artists, so maybe this will be a chance to impress one of your favorite game artists. Here's who'll be looking at your work:
Bob Rafei, Big Red Button Entertainment, Founder, CEO and Visual Director
Eddo Stern, UCLA Games Lab, Director
Glenn Phillips, Getty Research Institute, Senior Project Specialist & Consulting Curator, Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art
Ian Milham, Electronic Arts' Visceral Games, Creative Director
Jon Gibson, iam8bit, Founder and Partner
Matt Hall, Timbuk2 Studios, Senior Partner Production Designer
Nora Dolan - Independent Curator
Ryan Wilkerson, Microsoft Game Studios, Senior Art Director
Seth Spaulding, Blizzard Entertainment, Art Manager
Shane Caudle, Epic Games, Principal Artist
Or just do it because you love a game and want to show off your skills.
Submissions opened yesterday and run through April 20th, so get to making arts, artists.
