The Rookies is a much needed support network for artists during their journey from novice through to the early stages of their professional career. This is their journey, and it is our responsibility to connect them with trusted companies, studios and schools that will help them become the artist we know they can be.

The Rookies presents a great opportunity to learn what the most engaged schools are in creative media. It also produces very high-quality projects from students. The Rookies as a project and the team behind it are all amazing!
