Into the Void

​Take us on a journey Into the Void with the 2018 Atomhawk Art Challenge

The 2018 Atomhawk Art Challenge is now officially open for entries!

This year's theme is "Into the Void" and we're inviting concept artists from across the world to amaze us with how they bring their  own ideas to life.​

This year there are no separate categories, just one ultimate competition winner and two runners up.

Characters, environments and key moments are all equally welcome and will be judged against the same criteria: creative flair, technical execution and clear communication of the theme.
