Corel Corp. subsidiary procreate is sponsoring the
Paint Your Future
art contest, an academic promotion for high school and college-age students. Students are encouraged to create work using procreate Painter 7 to compete for prizes including cash or merchandise.
One grand prize will be awarded in one of two separate categories. Category One is aimed at high school entrants, one of whom will get US$1,500 in prize money. Category Two, for college or university entrants, carries a grand prize purse of $2,500. What’s more, ten runners-up in each category will each get a Wacom drawing tablet.
As part of the contest promotion, students can also get a US$30 mail-in rebate when purchasing the academic version of Painter 7 through October 31, 2002. The rebate is available as a PDF on resellers’ Web sites or as a tear pad in select store.
