Concept and Production Challenges

Concept artists helping production artists

Artists competing in production categories are able to select any submission produced in the concept art categories as the basis of their entry. 

If you participated in a concept category, you can still use your own concepts as the basis of a production entry. It is a condition of entry that your concept art submission may be used as the basis of a production category submission. Concept artists should be properly credited and linked if their concepts are used in a production category.

Can my entries be based on an existing IP?

No. Your submissions should not infringe any IP's rights. This means you shouldn’t use any movies or games as the visual reference for your entry.

Work in Progress

WIP (work-in-progress) materials must be posted in your challenge thread each week after registration for the challenge. As this is a key requirement for the challenge, it will not be possible to register for the challenge the week before the deadline as you will not be able to satisfy the weekly posting requirement.

Original Artwork

Entries must be new artworks specifically made for the challenge, and cannot be based on the concept art of another artist, or based on film, TV or game projects.

Challenge Judging

The challenge judging team and ArtStation.com are the judges of the challenge, and their judgement will be final.


Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I ask questions about the challenge?

Please direct questions about the challenge to the announcements page. We'll do our best to address and clarify questions there.

Why can't I enter the challenge if I'm I live in Italy, Brazil or Quebec?

A number of countries and provinces have competition/contest legislation that makes it impractical to run our contest in its current form. We'll continue to investigate solutions for future challenges, but right now it's not possible to include these locations. 

Where do I ask about technical problems or feature requests?

If you encounter any technical issues, please contact us at support@artforall.me. Please provide as much detail as possible when reporting issues - provide a URL to the problem, screenshots and even video if possible. Thanks!
