As you can probably imagine, competition on this kind of contest is going to be enormous, which probably makes you all wonder if it's actually worth spending hours (or days?) on some original Art or/and a movie? Well, that depends mostly on how good you think you are, however the prizes for this year art contests are undeniably very tempting!
First place winner in Movie Contest will be awarded with $2,000, Oswald Statue, and ticket do BlizzCon 2013. Second place will also get BlizzCon ticket + $1,000 and the third place will receive BlizzCon ticket + $700.
As you've probably expected, prizes in Original Art Contest are bit lower (but still very tempting!)
Winners in drawing contest will get: $1,500 and BlizzCon 2013 tickets for the first place, $1,000 + tickets for the second place and $700 + tickets for the third place.
As you can see Prizes are actually very nice (at least for those of us who haven't made tons of money with latest WoW Dupe Exploit), but everyone else will most likely consider it a pretty big amount of cash, especially as for few hours / days of work!
To see what kind of skill level is required (or maybe just to search for some inspiration), you can check one of the videos and images containing work of previous winners:
Do you think it's worth trying to reach for these awesome prizes? or maybe there's simply too much competition to even try? make sure to let us know what do you think about it in comments below!
