design tournament

My friends at Cut&Paste is back this Fall 2007 in eleven cities worldwide! They wanted me to blog this to get any of you involved. Here’s what they got to say. I judged this last year, and it was a great event. It has my measly stamp of approval.

We’ve partnered with Adobe to bring our digital design tournament series to six cities in the US (Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, San Francisco) and five cities across Europe and Asia (Berlin, Hong Kong, London, Sydney, Tokyo).

The Los Angeles tournament will be held on October 13th.

Eight designers will have the opportunity to showcase their talent and compete in three, single-elimination rounds. Their work will be webcast globally and projected in real-time for the live, Cut&Paste audience. Onsite and offsite viewers may vote online or by SMS to award an Adobe® Creative Suite 3 Master Collection Suite to the winner of our Audience Prize. An all-star judging panel will decide our C&P Champion, who will receive our Jury Prize, a newly released Wacom Cintiq® interactive display.

Judges this year include:
Saber (Renowned Graffiti Artist)
Michelle Doughtery (Creative Director, Imaginary Forces)
Keith Tomashiro (Creative Director, Soap Design)
Kelly Port (Visual Effects Supervisor, Digital Domain)
& one more to be announced…

Our call for entry deadline is July 17th, 2007.
