Join us for the first ever awards show just for Concept Artists.

The Concept Art Association invites you to a night of celebration at the Concept Art Awards Presented by LightBox Expo Saturday, September 7th at 6PM in Pasadena, California.

Hosted by Jonah Ray (Mystery Science Theater 3000, Nerdist), nominees from six categories will be honored by their peers and curated judges, along with celebrating lifetime achievements to the pioneers of our field and the professional work created during this years submission process. Awards are created by our Premiere Sponsor, Legacy Effects.

Our Title Sponsor, LightBoxExpo was conceived as a way to bring together the best artists in animation, illustration, live action and gaming industries under one roof for the ultimate celebration of art. Perfectly aligning with the Concept Art Association’s mission to elevate and raise the profile of concept artists, their art and their involvement in the entertainment industries.

Attendance is free to the event with a LightBox Expo pass.

Judges

The Concept Art Awards Presented by LightBox Expo 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.

The first round of judging took place July 8th - 22nd allowing professional and student artists, including those who submit, a chance to vote for their peers. The top voted entries were sent to our judges to determine the four finalists and overall winner.

We have curated a panel of peers to judge the Concept Art Awards Presented by LightBox Expo. We want to be solely focused on the art and the artists artistic abilities, which is why the judging panel consists entirely of artists currently working in or in proximity to the field of concept art.

Lifetime Achievement Awards

The lifetime achievement award will be awarded to five individuals this year. These individuals will be selected by our panel of judges in recognition of their contributions to entertainment concept art. It will be a chance to honor the pioneers of the concept art world and how they paved the way for future generations of artists.

LightBox Community Icon Award

LightBox Expo is proud to work alongside the Concept Art Association in creating the LightBox Community Icon Award. This award recognizes an individual or group who has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the art community.

 
 

Like any first time event, we have made adjustments to our overall vision for this year’s show based on community response and engagement. What that means for this year’s show, is that we will still be awarding Student Character, Student Environment, Independent Character, Independent Environment, and Fan Art excellence, however, this year we will not be awarding Professional Categories, instead, we will be focusing on Lifetime Achievement Awards, and will be showcasing a compilation reel celebrating a sampling of the professional work created for productions and video games released between Jan 2018 and May 2019. 

Professional entries that were submitted to this year’s event will be included and celebrated in the compilation reel at the show. Our goal for this year’s show is to be a fun celebration of the history and craft of Concept Art, and we hope that you support us in this decision.
