Cut & Paste, an international digital design tournament, tickets on sale now!

Design enthusiasts, mark your calendars: The Cut&Paste Digital Design Tournament is coming to the Wonder Ballroom September 21st, 2007. Extending its reach from the United States to Europe and Asia, this series of live competitions will feature a fresh slate of creative contenders and revamped design challenges. Over the course of several fast-paced, single-elimination rounds, eight designers will be whittled down to one. The contestants' work will be subjected to tough time limits and projected, in real-time, for the Cut&Paste audience. Winners of each round are determined by the following panel of judges:

Kristan Kennedy, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art
Joshua Berger, PLAZM magazine
Jose Cabaco, Wieden + Kennedy
Jason Bacon, UNKL/Giant Robot
Eric Lawrence, Ziba Design

The tournament serves three distinct purposes: As a showcase for emerging talent; as a bridge between artists; and as a celebration of the creative process.

In addition to the onstage competition, any audience member may elect to participate in their city's Audience Design Contest.
