Rookie Awards 2022 Finalists 

The Rookie Awards are an annual competition hosted by The Rookies that allows young creatives in CG to compete for prestigious awards in a variety of categories. Each year, Think Tank students submit their best work to this competition, for which their work is judged on the following criteria: 

  • Overall presentation
  • Technical skills
  • Creative skills
  • Industry skills
  • Variety of content
  • Employability of the artist


Incredible efforts were made by all of our students who entered this year’s competition, and we are blown away by the high quality and level of detail of each submission. This year, our students and alumni achieved an impressive 35 finalist places in 12 different categories!
