To beat all the rest, yeah, that's my cause!
For a few years now, The Pokémon Company has held contests for artists to show off their creative skills through the medium of Pokémon card illustrations. After narrowing all the entries down to the top 300, and then the top 100, the final results are now available. The grand prize winner will receive $5000 and have their artwork turned into a promo card for the trading card game. A new video, shown above, showcases many pieces of artwork as well as the final ranking of the winning pieces.
This year there were over 10,000 entries in the contest, and after much deliberation, the winners have been determined! You can see the winning artwork below, as well as the runners up. Many more pieces, as well as comments from the judges and artists, can be found on the official website linked at the bottom of this article.
