How to Participate at Star Wars – Art Awakens

Only one trailer has been released so far for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, back in November 2014. Yet, for the army of fans, that was more than enough. Artworks inspired by this trailer started to appear from the first day; one week after the trailer was released, one could easily assemble an exhibition of fans’ artworks. But, this time, it’s more demanding than that. Yes, every amateur artist can submit their works inspired by the Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They should do it at website ArtAwakens.com, in order to get a chance to be a part of an exhibition that will take place on November 13-15 at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. And how to do that? A serious jury, made by members from Disney, Lucasfilm and visual effects house Industrial Light and Magic will evaluate all works that were posted at Art Awakens website. Also, HP will hand their “Bend the rules award” – an HP notebook computer – to one of the five winners that has the highest score in the category of the innovative use of technology. Also, all original artworks will be sold at the auctions, and the money from that auction will go to UNICEF Kid Power, which will help malnourished children around the world. You have the time until October 11 to send your artworks. Ready, set, go!
