REWIND Proud To Sponsor The 2018 Rookies – Entries Now Open

The 2018 Rookies have announced the call for entries to their global competition and mentor programme, open to young creatives in film, animation, games, virtual reality, motion graphics, and 3D visualisation.

The competition offers students a “stamp of approval” as they transition from school to production, enabling their work to be seen, graded and commented on by industry experts. Winners often walk away with studio internships, school scholarships and prizes.

We are proud to sponsor this year’s Rookies awards. Supporting young talent as they move up in the creative industries is extremely important to us, having hired multiple individuals based on their performance in our own internal internship programme.

Since 2009, The Rookies have helped place 89 students in jobs across Asia, Canada, Europe, Oceania and the US. We have been a part of the judging panel in years past, allowing highlighted students the opportunity to work on films such as “Wonder Woman,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Mummy,” “Iron Man,” “Captain America” and “The Avengers” and AAA level games such as Hellblade, Far Cry and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

This year, the official categories are; Feature Animation, Digital Illustration, Visual Effects, Game Development, Virtual Reality, 3D Motion Graphics, Product Visualisation and Architecture Visualisation. Film of the Year (Visual Effects, 2D Animation and 3D Animation), and Game of the Year (Console and PC, Virtual Reality and Mobile).

To be eligible to enter you must 18 years or older, and have attended a certified higher educational training facility such as a University, Academy, College, or Institute of Technology, between January 2017 and May 2018. Important Dates: 07 March 2018: Open for Submissions, 15 May 2018: Submissions Close, 29 June 2018: Finalists Announced, 11 July 2018: Winners Announced.

If the announcement of this year’s Rookies has gotten you excited, once you’ve submitted your best work for consideration, why not take a look at our careers page, where we’re currently advertising for our summer internship – a similarly fantastic opportunity to break into the creative industries!
