NEW YORK — Cut&Paste (www.cutandpaste.com
), the global digital design competition known for its lively onstage battles, has begun its multi-city tour, with stops in New York, Mexico City and Seoul.
The competition is open to those who would like to compete in the events slated for the remaining cities, including London, Berlin, Helsinki, Tel Aviv, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Sao Paulo.
All who consider themselves worthy are invited to apply for the city tournament of their choice by visiting the competition’s Websit and submitting samples and a short statement. Before each tournament, potential competitors can prove skills in one of several qualifier events at which designers can try the Cut&Paste format and meet the local team.
Each city will crown one champion in three categories: 2D, 3D, and motion/animation design. The winners will head to New York in the fall for the third annual Cut&Paste Global Championship. The three ultimate winners will team up with top global brands on one-time design projects.
Cut&Paste is not a passive event. Competitors are expected to put on a show, not only onscreen, but onstage, bringing props, friends, and social media tie-ins. Judges will evaluate each design based upon, adherence to the competition brief, strength of concept, originality, aesthetic and technique.
