First of all I would like to thank
all the Indiana Jones fans who have participated
this Indiana Jones and
the Emperor's Tomb art competition. I have
received a total of 31 classical and digital artwork
for this competition and it was clear that everybody
has put a lot of effort in their works. Thanks!
But this art competition would have
never existed without the support from LucasArts
and Drew Struzan. LucasArts
came up with the initial idea for this competition
and have also been so kind to donate 5 fantastic
Indiana Jones and the
Emperor's Tomb posters drawn by Drew Struzan.
Thanks a lot LucasArts
and also Drew Struzan for signing one of the posters
to give away as the grand prize.
Tomb art competition entries has been judged
by Paul Shipper, Trevor Grove and I, Gilles Verschuere.
Paul and Trevor are very talented illustrators
themselves and both won art competitions in the
past. Many thanks to Paul and Trevor for helping
me judge this.
And now about the judging the contest
entries. The subject of this art competition is
Indiana Jones action/adventure game Indiana
Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, so the first
rule was that the artwork must be explicitly about
this Indy game.
This competition was divided into
2 categories. We have a Classical Art category
that is meant for all hand drawn and painted artworks.
And we also have the Digital Art category for
all the Photoshop artists who have made a wallpaper
or poster, etc. on their computer. We added this
Digital Art category so we could also give a chance
to the people that are less talented in handling
a pencil or paintbrush.
we received exactly 5 Indiana
Jones and the Emperor's Tomb posters. We
are giving away 2 posters to the two best Classical
Art entries and 2 posters to the two best Digital
Art entries. And we gave the last poster back
to its creator, Drew Struzan... but not for him
to keep. Drew has signed this fifth poster and
gave it back to us so we could give it to the
person that 'astonished' us with the quality of
his/her Emperor's Tomb
