International digital arts festival, NEoN, has launched a design competition that focuses on the theme "character." The contest has three categories, which are Industrial Guru, The Layperson and For the Kids, which is for children under 16 years old. All entries will be uploaded and available for viewing in the NEoN online gallery.

The winning designer will receive $150 in cash, a pair of NEoN conference tickets and the chance to see their design on a t-shirt, which will be produced by Teetonic. The best design will also be used on NEoN printed marketing material, and the artist can keep 2 percent for their own portfolio use.

"The competition will give any aspiring artists the opportunity to circulate their work both in print and online, reaching a wide-ranging audience," said Lyall Bruce, Sooper double D designer and part of the NEoN organizing group. "Winning the competition will be a fantastic boost to any professional or amateur artists' portfolio and we are all really excited to receive the entries."

This year's judging panel features Scott Downie and Fraser MacLean who have previously worked with Warner Brothers and Disney studios.
