CONCEPT ART ASSOCIATION

The Concept Art Association is an organization committed to elevating and raising the profile of concept artists, their art and their involvement in the entertainment industries. We want to create a community, mentorship opportunities, and events for the artists of the concept art world. At the center of our organization will be an annual Concept Art Awards show, where we showcase and recognize these below-the-line individuals working in entertainment concept art.

Submit to the Concept Art Awards

The Concept Art Awards is an award show that recognizes artists excelling in the field of entertainment concept art.

Unlike other top entertainment industry award shows we will not be judging the final product depicted in the art, as it appears on screen, whether that be live action, animation or game. We want to be solely focused on the art and the artists' artistic abilities.

The first round of judging takes place July 8th - 22nd giving professional and student artists (including those who submit) a chance to vote for their peers. The entries with the most votes will be sent to our curated panel of peer judges consisting of artists currently working in or in proximity to the field of concept art to determine the four finalists. Finalists will be announced in early August.

We are excited to bring to the concept art community an award show for artists to support and elevate their peers. But we can’t do this without YOU, the unsung talented men and women of concept art. Submit today and help us showcase and recognize these below-the-line individuals working in entertainment concept art. Judges will not be judging the final product depicted in the art, whether that be a physical costume, a set, props or finally rendered cgi effects as appears in the movie, tv show or video game.
