Wacom Cintiq Showdown


April 5-7, 2019

Watch creatives battle in the arena!

On Friday and Saturday of the show, swing by the Wacom booth and enter the preliminary round of the Cintiq Showdown. Drawing on one of several Cintiqs at the booth, entrants will be given a subject matter (using our random phrase generator) and a fixed amount of time (generally 10 minutes) to finish their illustration.

The preliminary and final round on Sunday will feature five total rounds of creative action with 16 contestants working on Wacom Cintiqs connected to large monitors (facing the crowd) so the audience can see what the artists are producing.

Winners will walk away with Wacom’s newly released innovative products and bragging rights!
