Coroflot's First Ever Sketch Jam Competition To Take Place During Design Week Portland 2017
Refill your markers and sharpen your pencils, because Coroflot's first ever Sketch Jam is going down on April 26th from 6-9PM at the Hand-Eye Supply's Glisan Garage in Downtown Portland, Oregon. It promises to be the most high-concept, high-flying, and downright fun sketching competition you've ever seen. The competition will be judged by five of Portland's most talented sketch-perts from companies like Adidas, Nike, Under Armour, and more. The judges will oversee a series of themed bracket competitions featuring members of Coroflot and Portland's vibrant design community.
Sketch Jam is open to all levels, from students to pros. Potential competitors will be personally reviewed by the Coroflot team to see if they have the mad skills to face off on the sketch court. The emphasis for this competition will be on product design, ranging from footwear to household objects, all of which will be sketched in a variety of fun and challenging rounds.
There will be live play-by-play commentary from ComedySportz, special prizes, craft brews provided by our friends at Fort George, and plenty of cool swag for the audience. The competition will be filmed and live streamed by Outlier Solutions, so even if you can't make it to the event you can still catch all the action.
Competitors will be competing not only for a chance to prove their sketching prowess, but also for a chance to win a glorious Wacom Cintiq 27, which the company has generously donated. In addition to the main event, Wacom will have a hands-on table at the Sketch Jam event where you can try out their newest products, talk shop, and enter a raffle to WIN a new Wacom Intuos Pro Paper pen tablet. Sweet!
We will begin accepting entries by Wednesday, April 5th. You can check out the Design Week Portland event page HERE and our Facebook event page HERE. Make sure to follow Coroflot on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more Sketch Jam updates!
