Creative minds everywhere love what they do, regardless of if they get world acclaim for their work. However, they also all agree that it doesn’t hurt to get attention for their art. G-Technology, the company that makes the external hard drives that you most likely are using or at least have heard of, took notice of this and launched Driven Creativity competition for 2012 on Tuesday. Even though the competition, geared toward film, photography, animation, and musical creatives 18 years of age or older, started two years ago, it finally made it’s way to American shores this year. Interested in showing off your talents? Let’s take a look more at the competition and what you need to enter.
Information on How To Enter
If you have art or multimedia to enter, this can be easily done on the G-Technology Design Creativity Contest page. As we mentioned before, you can enter anything from a film piece, to music, animation, or any other type of art that is in the multimedia category. Once this is created, you must also explain why the multimedia entered is considered good enough to be entered and how the money won will allow you to create more awesome work. Entrants, 18 years or older, must enter their work by the 24th of September, 2012 at 12:00AM. Winners will be announced on the 12th of October, 2012.
Incentives to Win
You may be wondering, what will you get for winning the Design Creativity competition? First, the runner-ups can receive G-Technology gadgets. The winner will receive that, as well as $5000 and the ability to go to show off their work at an art show in New York in November 2012. The $5000 received will go toward a project that the winner plans to work on.
How The Winner is Selected
A huge emphasis on the piece entered will go into more than just how it looks, it will go more into how much work was put into making your potentially winning piece. This will give anyone, from the smaller and larger entrants, to have an equal chance. For many competitions, either the well known entrants will get more notoriety or it will be geared more toward growing smaller entries, but the Design Creativity competition gives both an equal playing field. Additionally, the public can weigh in on who they think should win. To further contribute fairness, they will not be the ones choosing the final winner.
