As AIGA's Official Sponsor for Creative Inspiration, Shutterstock challenges each "Pixels of Fury" contestant to inspire every designer into action. Designers compete in front of a live audience to conceive and create inspiring posters at breakneck speed; the pressure is on to answer the big design challenge: Whose inspiration shines brightest?
Competitors face off in 20-minute rounds to create posters on topics of their own choosing, with the goal to inspire the audience into action. The audience votes on which competitor does the best work in that round. In the championship round, the winners of each of the competition rounds switch topics and again the audience votes to determine the winner.
All competitors use Shutterstock assets to create their posters; they can add type but can't use any outside images or additional hardware. The event happens live, with competitors surrounded by the audience and their posters projected on screen as they're being created!
The winner at each "Pixels of Fury" event receives:
Before "Pixels of Fury," the chapter posts all competitor profiles. Posters created at the event are announced on the chapter's website and promoted to the worldwide community of Shutterstock users and fans. Keep an eye out for live tweets and Instagram posts using the #PixelsofFury hashtag as events happen.
Pixels of Fury is coming to the AIGA San Diego Y Conference.
Sponsored by Shutterstock, the competition takes place after the Friday night reception. Conference attendees have the chance to watch six brave designers (two students, two emerging designers, and two seasoned veterans) compete for bragging rights and the Pixels of Fury Grand Prize–a $100 Apple gift card.
Contact your chapter and let them know you want them to bring "Pixels of Fury: A Live Creative Inspiration Tournament" to your city!
