Have you heard about Gifted? Competition? It is a design competition run by Hallmark Studio from their Bradford HQ, U.K. They run competitions six times a year to help them to recruit the very best and brightest new talent, with briefs that are designed to nurture commerciality, creativity and skill.
Last year I joined their Kid Character Design competition and won! It was a big surprise for me since I did not expect much. I just wanted to test my illustration from commercial point of view. Winning the competition gave me confidence to be more serious about my art.
This year, I joined again their Spring Event Competition. The challenge is to design fun, commercial designs for a Spring Events range. Spring Events covers anything from Valentine’s Day, to Mother’s Day, Easter or Father’s Day. I submitted 2 designs: Valentine Hedgehogs and Easter Bunnies. I did not win this year, but considered as one of commended entries. Still a "yay" for me. Here what they said about my works:
Yully Ana – "Another great submission. We particularly like the Easter Rabbit design,good composition and really adorable characters."
Winning or not, I am glad that my works were acknowledged. It is more than enough to keep doing
what I love...drawing:)
