Congratulations to Eva Hu and Rachel Berridge who both received The Weta Workshop Rising Stars Highly Commended Award for their individual entries in the Earth Guardians Character Design Competition. Organisers of this competition were searching for Aotearoa’s best young concept designers and students were given the brief of designing a character to defend the earth using nature and the elements to inspire their designs. Finalists were selected by a Weta Workshop panel and led by Art Director Paul Tobin. Eva and Rachel will both enjoy a tour of Weta Workshop for their winning entries featured here. Congratulations.
