With the second challenge of Search for a Star and Sumo Digital Rising Star now open, and the first challenge still well underway, we’re excited to announce the industry professionals who are providing individually tailored feedback on our art students’ first challenge portfolio submissions.
We’ve been blown away by just how many industry professionals have volunteered their time to develop the next generation of industry talent. Over 130 developers from over 100 studios, including freelancers, have signed up to receive student submissions making this the most assessors we’ve ever worked with!
These seasoned artists will be looking closely at our students’ portfolio piece submissions to provide the advice, suggestions and guidance that they’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. In particular, the judges will be providing marks for research, creativity, technical skill & artistic technique and, of course, overall presentation.
We’re incredibly thankful to every single one of the artists who are donating their time to Search for a Star. Assessor pages are now live, so we encourage you all to check out our character & environment assessors and animation & VFX assessors!
