On Saturday, September 11th 2021 at 6pm PST, the Concept Art Association will be live streaming from Gnomon School of VFX and Animation, a night of celebration for the second annual Concept Art Awards Presented by LightBox Expo.

The 2021 Concept Art Awards Presented by LightBox Expo will be hosted by Aldis Hodge (Black Adam) and Krystina Arielle (Star Wars: The High Republic) and will stream live for free on twitch, YouTube, and right here on our site.

Nominees from eighteen categories will be honored by their peers and curated judges, along with a celebration of lifetime achievements to the pioneers of the field.

We are thrilled to have our Premiere Sponsor, Legacy Effects back for year three to provide our trophies. Winners will also receive a One-Year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud.

Finally we are excited to be back working with ImagineFX Magazine who will be writing an article featuring all the winners from this year’s show.

Our Title Sponsor, LightBoxExpo was conceived as a way to bring together the best artists in animation, illustration, live action and gaming industries under one roof for the ultimate celebration of art. Perfectly aligning with the Concept Art Association’s mission to elevate and raise the profile of concept artists, their art and their involvement in the entertainment industries.
