Joining the list of competitions that was already previously announced, we have three new competitions to announce we are hosting this year:
- Oldschool pixel graphics, championed by Pandafox. For artists who love to do pixel art with constrained palettes. Accepting entries from any oldschool platform or fantasy console with limited palette.
- 3D graphics, championed by Oni. For all the 3d modelling artists out there to show what they are made of.
