Pixels of Fury 2013 at HOW and SF Design Week

Interesting delivery in my Inbox today! Pixels of Fury competition. Read all about it below. If you’re a crazy talented pixel pusher, this may be right up your alley. OR, you may know someone, feel free to pass it along.

We’ve already told you about some of the great things we have planned for our Pixels of Fury design competition this year. Last month, we brought the Fury to Adobe MAX in LA, and now we’re doing it again during HOW Design Live and SF Design Week! Better yet, we want you to be a part of it! If you’re a designer in the Bay Area (or will just be in town), we’d love to have you apply to be a contestant.

Pixels of Fury is the perfect opportunity to show off your design skills under pressure. With just 20 minutes to create a poster from scratch in front of a live audience, the pressure is on to see whose inspiration shines brightest. Of course, you’ll have the whole Shutterstock library at your disposal — used wisely, it can help you earn the coveted Furious Pixel trophy.

Interested in participating? Check out the video below of the contestants from last month’s event, look at our wrap-up of the Fury in 2012, and then email us at pixelsoffury@shutterstock.com with your contact info and a link to your portfolio.
