The Asus ProArtist Awards were created with a mission celebrate creativity, and to provide a global platform for talented creators with great potential, so they can be seen and recognised. This year's theme is sustainability, which reflects the importance of the environment. Also, in celebration of the new ASUS Spatial Vision glasses-free autostereoscopic 3D OLED display technology, the winning artwork has a potential opportunity to be selected as demo project for the technology.

Asus are also looking forward to discovering outstanding 3D content creators who will be in the ASUS spotlight for future cooperative projects or exposure. Hence, creators are encouraged to submit highly detailed and vivid artworks that can showcase the potential of a 3D OLED display.

Mitch Yang, ASUS chief design officer, offers the following useful advice for potential entrants: "To enter the Asus Design Awards 2023, you should focus on originality, innovation, and creativity. Be clear about the topic you are focusing on, and explain how your design addresses it. Finally, make sure you present your work in a compelling and visually appealing way.”

The Asus ProArtist Awards 2023 are organised by Asus in alliance with creative industry leaders Pantone and Calibrite, and also in collaboration with renowned film and animation schools.

The competition is intended to encourage and inspire creators in the four competition categories of Photography, Graphic Design, Film, and Animation. Additionally, in order to celebrate the partnership between ASUS and Pantone, they have added the Pantone Special Award into the awards, in order to encourage creators to unleash their colour creativity and use colours to tell a great story about the theme.

Submissions will be closely evaluated by an international expert panel consisting of renowned content creators, industry professionals, Pantone representatives, and Asus experts. A winner, runner-up, and a Pantone Special Award winner will be chosen for each of the four categories, and prizes will consist of cash, Asus creator hardware, a Pantone and Calibrite product bundle, global online publicity, and an opportunity for the work to be selected as demo project for ASUS Spatial Vision.
