The top prize for the “Amateurs” category is a 12-week visual effects (VFX) classroom course, either at Escape Studios’ academy in London or Los Angeles, followed by a 12-week placement at The Mill. Runners up will also receive a selection of mentored and online courses and a license of the Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite for Education.
The top prize for the “Young Professional” category is an Escape Studios ZBrush for 3D Artist online course, a Hewlett Packard (HP) Pavilion laptop and a showreel review by the panel of judges. This category has been introduced this year to provide an opportunity for young professionals with some experience to boost their career development.
