Win a luxury trip to the Trojan Horse was a Unicorn festival

Last year, Raphael Lacoste, Loic Zimmerman and Massive Black’s Kemp Remillard all gathered in TrĂ³ia in Portugal for the first Trojan Horse was a Unicorn festival. This year, you could join artists like them – for free.

The organisers of the CG festival, which takes place in the not-too-shabby surroundings of a luxury hotel on a white sand beach, have just announced a contest to create a festival ‘warrior’: an illustration of “the ultimate THU attendee”.

The contest is open to 2D and 3D illustrations, and can be in any style: cartoony, photorealistic or otherworldly.

The winner gets an (almost) all-expenses-paid trip to this year’s festival, including flights, transport to the venue, plus four nights in a five-star hotel, breakfast included – and gets to go to all the exclusive parties with the festival speakers.

To enter, you need to post at least three work in progress images to the official Facebook group, then email your finished entry to You can find a full list of contest rules in the Files tab on the Facebook group.
