The Fury So Far...Shutterstock and AIGA are proud to announce new dates and locations for  Pixels of Fury--a national design tournament that takes creative inspiration to the next level. Our first "wave" of Fury was a great success, with AIGA chapters around the US hosting successful tournaments, bringing together top designers bold enough to face off in front of live audiences of their peers and community. From Philadelphia to Milwaukee,  San Francisco to Lincoln, and Boston to Salt Lake City, Shutterstock and AIGA delivered design fury like never before.

Some highlights from our "first wave" of Fury:

Shutterstock hosted Pixels of Fury at our annual party during the HOW Design Live conference in Boston, MA. 500+ friends came for the fury and stayed for the fun. Check out the video:

Here are some of our favorite designs to come out of the intense 20-minute rounds. We were blown away by what our rockstar competitors accomplished with Shutterstock Instant, limited time, and unlimited creativity:

Our friends at AIGA Nebraska took a decidedly unique approach to their event promotion, and we especially loved their retro mo-graph treatment of the Pixels of Fury Logo, as well as the throwback VFX wizardry:

How it Works:

Each contestant will have 20 minutes to produce a poster using images and vectors from Shutterstock Instant based on a unique theme--the poster must inspire the audience to action (whether it's to learn how to whistle, how to kickbox, or how to start your own volunteer organization). Participating designers will definitely feel the pressure as a live audience watches their every move. The winner is chosen by SMS Text Voting, while a panel of local design influencers will assist in the selection of the winning designs. Prizes include a 3-month Shutterstock subscription ($709 value), a $100 Apple gift card, and the Furious Pixel, our prestigious, really sparkly (and really heavy) trophy:
