Call for Contestants

Do you have what it takes?

We are searching for 8 brave designers in San Antonio to compete in AIGA SA & Shutterstock’s second annual Pixels of Fury live design competition.

How it Works

Competitors face off in 20-minute rounds to create posters on a given topic. The audience votes on which competitor does the best work in that round. The winners of round 1 and round 2 face off in the championship round. The person who illustrates the topic most successfully is declared the winner.

All competitors use curated Shutterstock Instant to create their posters; they can add type but can’t use any outside images or additional hardware.

AND the whole thing happens live, with competitors surrounded by the audience and their posters projected on screen as they’re being created.

Interested in competing?

There are 8 spots available for competitors. Any professional designer or art director is eligible to participate. If you think you have what it takes to win the Pixels of Fury trophy along with some other great prizes email us at with:

  • Your name, employer/position
  • A link to your online portfolio or a PDF attachment of your work samples
  • 1-2 sentences explaining why you want to be a competitor

The deadline for submissions is October 3rd.

We will announce our competitor lineup the week after.

Good luck!


This years event will take place at Dorćol Distilling Co. Check them out on facebook.
