£20,000 worth of prizes and opportunity to work at The Mill
Escape Studios, the computer graphics training academy, is running a contest with an amazing opportunity as a prize: a 12-week visual effects course at their academy, followed by a 12-week placement at post-production company The Mill (responsible for Nike’s World Cup ad and more recently the Doritos/Pepsi Max commercials).
The main prize is available to amateurs, but young professionals can also enter for a chance to win an Escape Studios ZBrush for 3D Artist online course, a Hewlett Packard (HP) Pavilion laptop and a showreel review by the panel of judges.
There are also various goodies for runners up.
To enter, submit a show reel or set of stills compiled into a video by 12th November 2011.
The demo reel of last year's winner is here.
