This is from the Cut and Paste Press Materials. I highly recommend my readers to go to this event. This is one of the greatest art competitions in the city. Credit goes to Lauren Dapiaoen and the rest of the Cut & Paste crew.

Cut&Paste 2009 Global Championship



This year’s Cut&Paste Digital Design Tournament has made its way through 16 cities and 256 competitors from February – June 2009. 


It now culminates in a battle of the best, champions vs. champions, with the final 2009 tournament event: the first-ever Cut&Paste Global Championship


Showcasing the talents of 48 competition winners in 2D3D, and motion design, from the North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific regions , the championship event will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Friday, October 16, 2009.


The Global Championship will present the same three competition formats that Digital Design Tournament 2009 has featured throughout the cities on its global tour: 2D3D, and motion design. The Global Championship will be putting sixteen competitors onstage for all three competitions. These competitors, forty-eight in all, represent the winning designers from every city on the 2009 Cut&Paste tour. Arriving with at least one successful competition under their belts, the city champions will take the stage again to quickly create designs against the ticking pressure of the clock and under the watchful eyes of the crowd. And this time, the pride of their countries and hometowns, along with their personal reputations, will be on the line.

The Global Championships for the C&P Design Tournament Update.

October 7, 2009 at 10:00 pm (Uncategorized)

I’m sorry I did not update my blog on all the happenings that happened with this event. The event was initially slated for June 20th. It got postponed due to fears of the global competitors not being able to get their visas on time. I am pleased to announce that the Global Championships will be held next Friday, October 16th at the Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 W. 34th St. in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan. 48 competitors from 16 cities around the globe will battle for design supremacy. These include our New York competitors for 2D(Miguel Hernandez), 3D(Neil Benjamin), and motion design(Jake Guttormsson). There will also be DJ Cosmo Baker to set the mood for competition right. Everybody, come on down (provided you’re over 21) to the Hammerstein Ballroom and come to the event.

Disclaimer – I do not work for Cut&Paste, I am just promoting it because I support these people and all the blood, sweat, and tears they put into putting these events on. These events are extremely entertaining.
