Design Students – What a challenge!


Yippee Entertainment are launching a unique competition.

Yippee are offering one person in the UK and one in the US a chance to design a member of Chuck’s Chimpact family and have their design turned into a character in the Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8 versions of the game. Chimpact is available on a variety of platforms but this is an exclusive to the Windows game versions that will have this new character.  What’s more the UK winner will get a chance to go to the Yippee Entertainment game studio in Manchester and see their creation turned into a video game character!

You can find details to enter at the website:

This competition is open to anyone in the UK or US who wants to draw, paint, crayon, use a software design programme or any art and crafts they fancy to design a new member of Chuck’s family on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

    How much will they pay for it? Oh wait they are giving a " privilege" to visit their studio … what a shame!

    This is external competition operated by Yippee NOT Microsoft. I simply posted this as its great opportunity for UK Students studying Design Art and Animation to have a real portfolio item.

    I am sorry that you feel your design and exposure is simply worth a cost £ > not exposure to the industry or opportunity of getting known within the industry or event getting a job in the industry.

    As Microsoft we have lots of competitions which are aimed at students see a great example of a recent design focused competition.…/perfect-competition-for-design-students-and-courses-app-to-the-future-is-an-app-design-competition-open-to-the-international-design-community.aspx

    Agreed with Dmitry. That is just a shame to use these sort of "competitions" in commercial products development. In our faculty "exposure to the industry" is the red flag we always tell students about!
