BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT® STUDENT ART CONTEST

Students, get ready to show off your talents: the Student Art contest has arrived!

Blizzard Entertainment’s university relations and World of Warcraft development teams are proud to present our first Student Art Contest!

We’re calling on all college and university students to submit an original environment piece fit for World of Warcraft. Using your creativity and ability to work within the WoW art style, create a small environment diorama. Required elements are trees, rocks, grass, and props, plus a small structure or shrine.

The final piece should be structured close to the example provided at right. We’re looking for lower poly count (e.g.: around 1,500 polys for a mature-sized tree).

Show us something that we’ve never seen before, but that still works within the World of Warcraft universe!

All entries must be received by January 15, 2012, and meet the image-formatting requirements (high-resolution JPEG no greater than 5MB in size) in the official rules in order to be eligible to win. Only current college and university students are eligible to win. Check out the official rules for more information.

Prizes

Three grand prize winners (as decided by the World of Warcraft art team) will receive the following:
  • A three month mentorship by a member of the World of Warcraft art team, via email or phone critique of portfolio work (contact frequency will be roughly once every two weeks)
  • A one-year World of Warcraft subscription
  • A Blizzard notebook (containing an original sketch by a top Blizzard Entertainment artist)
  • A Blizzard T-shirt
