Corel subsidiary Procreate has announced an extension to its

art contest, which offers cash awards and other prizes to students who submit artwork created using Procreate’s Painter 7 software.

Announced in August, the Paint Your Future contest was originally supposed to run through the end of October, but has now been extended through January, according to the company.
One grand prize will be awarded in each of two separate categories: Category one is for high school students, and the grand prize is US$1,500. Category two is aimed at college students, who get a grand prize of $2,500. Ten runners-up in each category will receive a graphics tablet made by Wacom.
For the duration of the contest, students get a $30 mail-in rebate when they purchase the academic version of Painter 7. The rebate is available from a tear pad in select stores or from a downloadable PDF file.
