When I saw that the grand prize for the recently announced “See What’s Possible” Challenge from Adobe and Cut&Paste was $20,000 USD, I did a double-take.
Upon hearing about the event a few weeks ago, I agreed to spread the word not because Motionographer would make any money from it (it won’t), but because I believed in Cut&Paste’s ability to bring designers together so they can have a great time and be their best.
I had no idea the jackpot would be so big. But there it is. In black on white on the competition site. Adobe and C&P aren’t messing around, apparently.
And check out the judges: Alexei Tylevich (Logan), Jonathan Notaro (Brand New School), Nando Costa (Nervo) JosÃ© Gomez (Shilo), Adina Sales (Blacklist) and Victor Newman (Freestyle Collective). Pretty solid lineup, no?
I’m really hoping this event shines a spotlight on some new talent. This is exactly the kind of opportunity that could give up-and-coming scrappers their break. I got into this wild world of mograph through a contest sponsored by Creative Commons, so I’m a firm believer in their power.
Plus, they’re a hell of lot more fun than 98% of the client work out there.
Now go create some awesome stuff. Just make sure to read the rules first.
