Win an incredible trip with Weta Workshop Co-founder, Richard Taylor to the 3rd annual Gwangmyeong Concept Design Competition in South Korea.

Concept design is not just about technical skill. The great concept designers of the world have a profound ability to evoke stories through artwork that transcends its medium. The very best concept design can leap off the page or computer screen and straight into the cinema, stage or exhibition space. Entries for this year's competition close at 5pm, 19 September, 2016. The New Zealand winner will be selected by a judging panel featuring Richard and senior members of Weta Workshop’s concept design department. Together, they’ll be looking for strong technical ability, originality, and, most importantly, incredible story-telling.
