Autodesk announced a contest seeking images created by users of the Autodesk SketchBook digital painting and drawing products. The winning submission will be featured on the splash screen of Autodesk SketchBook Mobile - an application that has been downloaded more than two million times - and will appear each time the application is launched, giving the contest winner a highly visible platform for his or her artistic creation.
"SketchBook users range from creative professionals and illustrators, to artists and hobbyists," said Chris Bradshaw, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Autodesk. "We're eager to see what the SketchBook community produces, and we hope they see this contest as an exciting opportunity to have their work recognized and featured in the spotlight."
SketchBook products are extremely sophisticated and powerful applications for illustration on desktops, laptops and mobile devices. Autodesk Sketchbook Pro enables both professional and amateur artists to create rich digital artwork with powerful sketching tools. Autodesk SketchBook Mobile - developed specifically for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch - and Autodesk SketchBook Pro for iPad enable users to create the same high-quality artwork directly from their mobile devices. The latest addition to the product line, Autodesk SketchBook Designer, enables professional designers and artists to use a hybrid paint and vector workflow for design illustration.
Submissions may be created using any of the Autodesk SketchBook products, including SketchBook Pro, SketchBook Mobile, SketchBook Pro for iPad, SketchBook Designer and Autodesk SketchBook Express. The contest is free to enter and each contestant may submit one image.
Deadline for submissions is November 14, 2010. Public voting will be open from November 30, 2010, to December 14, 2010. The winner will be announced on December 21, 2010.
