The Game Developers Conference (GDC) and The CGSociety (CGS) are supporting the future of professional original game art with the launch of the Graphic Impact art and animation competition. Finalists will display their creations during the entire week of GDC, which will take place March 20-24, 2006 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. Winners will be announced during a VIP Reception on Thursday, March 23, at the San Jose Fairmont hotel.
With the arrival of next-generation consoles and advanced techniques, artists are now capable of creating film-quality imagery. For the first Graphic Impact competition, dubbed The Pivotal Moment, contestants are asked to submit an image, animation and story that illustrate a crucial moment between the antagonist and protagonist.
All entries will be reviewed by a judging panel consisting of influential industry members from companies such as Midway Games, DreamWorks Animation and Oddworld Inhabitants. Six finalists will be sponsored to travel to San Jose and attend the GDC where they will receive additional prizes.
