Winners

On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following category winners.

Winner

Alexander Tullo

alextullo

United States | Ringling College of Art and Design

Since I was able to hold a pencil, I would constantly be drawing. In the car, on the bus, if there was paper I would be drawing. But as I went through school, I found myself excelling at technical classes along with arts. At the 2015 NY Portfolio Review I learned about Ringling's animation dept and its mix of technicality and creativity, and I went full steam ahead to curate the perfect portfolio. After graduating with a film I couldn't be more proud of, I'm ready to make a name for myself.
