Electronic Arts Canada today started its Canadian Arts Competition, in search of the most talented post-graduate students. In the contest, the students submit a five minute animated 3-D short film to be judged by the studios’ staff.
“This Electronic Arts competition is a fantastic opportunity for students. Not only does it represent a great deal of financial assistance for the winner at a crucial time in their education, but it will also help kick-start their future,” said David MacWilliam, acting dean of the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver.
“Electronic Arts Canada is very excited about this competition ? this is the first time we have ever done anything like it!,” said senior manager of recruitment at EAC, Nancy Gray-Starkebaum
Twenty-five finalists will be flown to Burnaby, B.C. where a presentation will be held for the grand prize winner. Both the winner and the school the student attended will receive $20,000.
