Call for entries: ASIAGRAPH2012. Aim for the top in CG Art!

You decide the theme. We are looking for “Fresh Diversity”.

The “ASIAGRAPH2012 CG Art Gallery Public Exhibition”, sponsored by “ASIAGRAPH”, is once again this year seeking artwork. ASIAGRAPH is an international CG event that brings Asia’s CG art together under one roof. Every year, individuals and groups from each Asian country with active creators, such as Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, etc., participate in this event, competing for top honors.
For this contest, we are seeking CG art (still-picture graphic art and illustrations) and CG animation on a large scale as “An Expression of CG art” unique to Asia. Artwork will be vigorously evaluated emphasizing “originality” and whether the artwork is possessed of “visual beauty”. Winning artwork will be displayed/shown in October 2012, at “ASIAGRAPH2012”, held at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, in Daiba, Tokyo.
We invite you to challenge this celebrated international competition as a way of launching yourself as a CG creator.
