THU Golden Ticket Challenge 2018: Land of Wonder

Tickets for the Trojan Horse was a Unicorn 2018 Festival are selling fast and soon there will be only two ways to secure a ticket to the event in Malta—the Trojan Horse was a Unicorn’s Golden Ticket Challenge. ArtStation and The Rookies are giving two tickets to THU 2018 to the winners in the Professional and Student categories of the THU Golden Ticket Challenge along with a round-trip airfare, food and accommodation, THU goodies and an ArtStation Pro subscription.

The Professional Challenge is aimed at artists who are no longer students and would like to be a part of the THU experience!

If you’re a recent graduate or student enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education between January 2017 – Sept 2018, the Student category is for you! *

The theme of the challenge is Land of Wonder, and the goal of the challenge is to foster community-based learning, to celebrate artists’ achievements and to give young artists the tools they need to start their careers. The THU judging panel includes: José Alves da Silva and the five winners of the previous THU Golden Ticket Challenges— Dor Shamir (2013), Max Kostenko (2014), Jakob Eirich (2015), Grace Liu (2016) and Te Hu (2017).

The brief for the challenge has been posted and the deadline for final submissions is July 9, 2018.
