Light & Dark

Secondary School Character Competition

The Light and Dark Secondary School Character Competition is back for 2018!

Light and Dark is the country’s largest character design competition for Year 11, 12 and 13 students.  For the past five years, Animation College has invited students from across New Zealand to create a character that displays two contrasting emotions (one ‘light’ and one ‘dark’) with the competition being judged by some of New Zealand’s top creatives.  

This year, Animation College is delighted to be joined by Yoobee School of Design in presenting Light and Dark. This exciting development means that there will be more amazing character design workshops hosted in more regions across the country, as well as some bigger prizes up for grabs, including some sweet merch from our major sponsors Adobe, Wacom, Gordon Harris and Playtech!

So what are you waiting for? Light and Dark is officially open for entries!
