We reckon the work submitted to the Awards is as good - if not better - than a lot of professional CG work splattered all over the interweb. This year our goal is to smash the social reach of our Awards and get as much exposure for your work as possible, but we need your help.


How do I get involved?

guerillaAnyone can get involved. You just need to show that you have helped promote the Awards. This can be as simple as a tweet or liking our social media pages, but ultimately we are looking for more elaborate and clever ways that you can spread the word. Once you have done something worthy of sharing, make sure to upload it to any of our official social media sites and tag it with #CGSA15. Some great examples include:


  • print a t-shirt or crochet a beanie
  • getting a fake tattoo with the Awards logo and post it on Instagram
  • putting up signs around your school
  • photo bomb a local reporter or celebrity
  • talking at your next school meeting
  • asking your sky-writing Uncle to write a message in the sky
  • or even just take a selfie and tag yourself!
