As AIGA's Official Sponsor for Creative Inspiration, Shutterstock challenges each "Pixels of Fury: A Live Creative Inspiration Tournament" contestant to inspire every designer to learn something new. Designers compete in front of a live audience to conceive and create inspiring posters at breakneck speed. Under the gaze of local superstar judges, 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 of inspiring the audience to learn something new. Judges and the audience vote on which competitor does the best work in that round. In the championship round, the winners of each of the competition rounds switch topics–the person who illustrates the topic most successfully is declared the winner.
All competitors use curated Shutterstock lightboxes to create their posters; they can add type but can't use any outside images or additional hardware. The thing 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 and judge 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 Flickr galleries and live tweets using the #PixelsofFury hashtag as events happen.
Contact your chapter and let them know you want them to bring "Pixels of Fury: A Live Creative Inspiration Tournament" to your city!
