This year’s theme is ‘Under Strange Suns’, where entrants are invited to create a character design, environment design, or piece of keyframe art to be in with the chance of winning amazing art-themed prizes. 

Atomhawk has even created a handy guide on key considerations and what the judges are looking for to help those entering for the first time this year.

 

WHO CAN JOIN?

The Atomhawk Art Competition is for concept artists and illustrators – and for the first time ever, we are accepting 3D entries! In the past, artists could use 3D as part of their process, but this year, a fully 3D render will be a valid submission.

Strong composition, rendering, lighting, and attention to detail are crucial for success. The competition will be judged by a panel of Atomhawk art leadership and our independent guest judge, Thomas Chamberlain-Keen.

What does Under Strange Suns mean to you? We can’t wait for you to show us.

Submission Deadline: August 10th 2023
Winners Announced: August 31st 2023

 

There is no registration required to join the competition. A submission form will be posted here on July 10th and will be open until August 10th, where you can submit your final artwork when it’s completed. This will be considered your entry.
