Our sister magazine Macworld and G-Technology are looking for digital artists who create amazing still images using digital techniques.

Based around the theme of "Create" we're looking for digital submissions that best espouse the nature of being creative.

The Digital Artist of the Year award is an opportunity to get unrivalled recognition for your creative endeavours. Three shortlisted entries will be invited to the prestigious Macworld Awards gala dinner event on 16 June 2011.

As well as being publicly recognised for your work, the winner will also receive a MacBook Air and a G-DRIVE Slim courtesy of G-Technology. G-DRIVE slim hard drives are the perfect hard drive for someone on the go. G-DRIVE slim is formatted for your Mac and Time Machine Ready, making it an easy plug-and-play storage device. G-DRIVE slim is made with a light-weight aluminium enclosure. Portability has never looked so good.

Entrants must supply a digital image to us by 19 May 2011. The image can be created using any mixture of hand-drawn and photograph images, but the final conception must have utilised digital techniques in some form.

Entrants must upload the image using Flickr (a Flickr account will be required) using this link. Images should be uploaded in any standard RGB format (JPEG, PNG, etc). No video or animation will be accepted. Each entrant declares that the image they are submitting complies with the rules and guidelines and that the content is entirely their own original work, and has not been copied and does not contain any third party or copyrighted.
