About the Image Challenge

Online communities have proven to be an amazing resource for artists. The Gnomon Workshop has had the unique opportunity to inspire, motivate and train artists from all walks of life and all around the globe, and our forum is a great place for you to share your work with other artists who have a passion for learning and community.

Every month we create a new challenge based on specific themes. Our judges select four winners from the 2D Concept and 3D Concept categories (8 total), who will receive up to 25 Gnomon Workshop titles (winners get to choose of course)!

What criteria are used to pick the winner?

The winners are chosen based on our judges' personal criteria, however we often award prizes to artists whose CONCEPTS or IDEAS are excellent, regardless of technical execution. While first place awards tend to bias to a combination of concept AND technical merit, we often choose winners who show POTENTIAL. We love to see new artists emerge, and this is a good way to give artists exposure while rewarding them for their talents.


Gnomon has created a series of DVDs that will appeal to anyone interested in a career path in visual arts. The availability of these lessons represents a significant opportunity for artists everywhere to elevate their skillsets to the next level. — Jim McCampbell, Department Head, Computer Animation Ringling School of Art & Design
