30 APRIL - 4 MAY 2014
THE 10 YEAR
Coming April 30 - May 4, the Pictoplasma Festival and Conference on Contemporary Character Design and Art celebrates its 10 year anniversary, with a specially immersive program of more than 20 awe-inducing artist presentations and back-to-back conference lectures, 100+ freshly hatched animations illuminating the big screen, endless exhibition fun, immeasurable inspiration and loads of confetti. Join the festivities and meet the avantgard of today’s image creation, mingle with like-minded spirits and dive head-on into an insightful and inspiring week full of exhibitions, creativity, knowledge, networking, and – of course – a big birthday party!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PICTOPLASMA >>>
As an Open Call for Entries, Pictoplasma invites all international designers, illustrators and artists to submit a self-portrait of their character for the big upcoming anniversary exhibition, scheduled to take place April 30 - May 12 2014 in the context of the 10th Pictoplasma Berlin Festival.
Contribute towards the festival’s central portrait exhibition and submit pictures of your Characters, while they are taking snapshots of themselves! We rely on you (and your artistic imagination) to help us counter the current craze of blurry duck faces and underexposed narcism with some true character.
ALL INFORMATION & HOW TO SUBMIT HERE
