Creative Creatures Design Competition - Winners

Last term, all KS2 and KS3 pupils were invited to participate in a national competition organised by George Lucas’ special effects company, Industrial Light and Magic. Pupils were asked to create their own predatory water alien. There were two competitions – a design competition and a 3D Computer modelling competition. Pupils were able to participate in 3D modelling workshops during lockdown lunchtimes for those interested at KS2 and a webinar was also arranged with a ILM computer creature modeller to show how the professionals do it!

The competition was judged by Academy award winner Andrew Whitehurst and an ILM professional concept artist, who specialises in creature design for movies. The judges described the standard as ‘superb’. This week the shortlist and winners were announced – please see the list below – prizes for all the winners have been posted directly to the pupils’ houses.
