The Rookies was created to discover and showcase the outstanding talent emerging from higher education facilities and help launch graduates into careers at the world’s top studios.

Less than 7 weeks until entries open!

We are kicking open the gates again on March 7th, 2017. We have some huge announcements to make, and we can’t wait to show off all the new website features.

Here are 8 good reasons to get you involved in this year’s Rookies:

1) Have your work reviewed by Industry heavy weights. We have judges from all the top studios and software companies. This is worth a whole pile of gold right there.

2) Launch into 2017 with a new job, internship, or scholarship. We have them all. You could be working at some of the biggest studios in the world before you know it.

3) Hang out with your peers, in all areas of design and innovation. We focus on showcasing talent by young artists, not people with 20+ years experience.

4) The Rookies produces a whole lot of buzz. We are talking over 3 million impressions, 400K unique visitors, and entries from over 70 countries around the world. This is just for last year too!

5) The world gets to vote on your work! We are saving some of our best prizes for the People’s Choice Awards. This will be run through Facebook, and it’s going to be epic.

6) Prizes to give away every single week. Our winners always get looked after, but this year we’re extending the love to all entrants with random acts of kindness and giveaways.

7)Mark your spot in history as a Rookie All-Star. Our All-Stars have gone on to be leading artists, supervisors, and creators at world class studios and they will all tell you it’s because they simple took a chance and submitted their work to The Rookies.

8) You want 2017 to be a year to remember!

We know you are incredibly talented and have amazing projects to share. Let us help you showcase your skills to the world and see what happens.
