Enter Autodesk-Sponsored VES Student Award

Autodesk Inc.is once again supporting the Steven Spielberg-inspired award for “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Student Project” for the 7th year in a row.

The winning student or team of students will receive the award live on-stage at the annual VES Awards Show, to be held Feb. 4 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Students can enter eligible projects released between Jan. 1, 2014 – Dec. 31, 2014; submissions will be accepted between Oct. 6 – Nov. 23, 2014.

Established in 2009 to recognize the amazing visual effects work being done by students, the VES student award has proven to be a springboard for aspiring visual effects professionals as past winners have gone on to work at leading visual effects studios such as MPC, Pixomondo, Glassworks, The Mill, Psyop, and others.

Autodesk’s support of the VES student awards builds on its commitment in education and to grooming an industry-ready workforce. In fact, all students, teachers, and schools around the world have free* access to Autodesk’s full portfolio of creative applications and professional 3D design software. In North America, more than 35,000 middle schools, high schools, and higher education institutions can take advantage of Autodesk’s pledge in education, which is valued at more than $450 million is software and services.
