In a search for future stars of the CG industry, Escape Studios has launched CG Whiz 2011. The competition is open to anyone interested in computer graphics, offering over £20,000 worth of prizes and a unique opportunity to work at The Mill.

This year, organisers have introduced a brand new ‘Young Professionals’ category, for young pros with up to three year’s experience working in the creative and entertainment industries. The usual ‘Amateurs’ category is open to students, graduates and hobbyists not currently working in the industry.

User Choice Awards have also been introduced this year, giving artists the chance to vote for their favourite entries online.

The competition closes on 12 November. Voting for the User Choice Awards will begin on November 14.
