Round of applause for our sponsors


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


Rosel Tan Yi Qian


Singapore | 3dsense Media School

Since I was introduced to games in secondary school, I have been through many different genres of online games/pc games. All of them had fascinated me with their own worlds, story and characters. Promptly after graduating, I decided on full time studying art and modelling for 3D so that I would be able to craft out a world just like those that I have been to. It’s been years since that first step but this resolve is still going strong within me.

People's Choice

Frans Bellart


Spain | Animum Creativity Advanced School

The first time I started drawing was at age 7-8, my parents got me a Mickey Mouse Projector and I remember spending hours and hours with it, also I played with videogames more than I should. As I grew older, I moved away from this "hobby" and ended up focusing more on health sciences. It was when I entered the degree of Medicine, two year ago , when I realized that what I really wanted was create. Even though that the world of Art is not as stable, I made the decision to be part of the 3d.
