Victory Day

​Atomhawk are excited to announce the launch of their first ever art competition!

We want to celebrate and reward the awesome creative talent which we know exists all over the world in the field of concept art and look forward to connecting with artists of all levels to see how they bring their own brilliant ideas to life.

​Theme: Victory Day


We’re inviting artists to create a scene or character inspired by the concept of “Victory Day”.

It’s up to you to decide who or what is celebrating the victory and what the story is behind the success. It could be a personal, team or national triumph set in a universe past, present, future or parallel.

We’re looking for awesome ideas and artwork that not only looks great but also tells the story behind the image.

​Judging Criteria


There are two categories to the competition: one for characters and one for environments/key moments.

Entries will be judged on both creative flair and technical execution. The theme of “Victory Day” must be clearly communicated.

​Engagement


We’d love to see how your work is progressing throughout the course of the competition so don’t forget to share your sketches, silhouettes and sources of inspiration, as well as your final work, using #atomhawkvictory

Before the winners are announced, we’ll be compiling a showreel of our favourite pieces and sharing on our website and social media.

​Deliverables


Your final image should be in JPEG format with a resolution of 300 dpi. It should be a max. of 2000 pixels on its longest edge and a max. file size of 10MB.

No work in progress is required but we would love you to share how you’re developing your ideas, as well as final entries, on social media using #atomhawkvictory

Final entries should be sent to: victoryday@atomhawk.com

Please also include your full name in the text of your email so we can make sure you’re properly credited for your work.
