We want to give everyone the opportunity to apply and have therefore chosen not to base our admission on grades. We also make sure to process all applications anonymously to ensure that age, gender, ethnicity, etc. will not affect the selection. What is assessed is knowledge and skills – in combination with your commitment to attend this education. We will look at the whole, that is, if you are good at drawing/painting by hand, it can compensate for the lack of experience in 3D programs – and vice versa.
Thus, everyone who applies for the education needs to send in assignments that show practical skills. This year there are three assignments worth up to 40 points each, for a maximum total of 120 points.
- Assignment 1. A hand-drawn pencil drawing (+ a completed form), see specification below.
- Assignment 2. A colorful illustration or animated sequence created with a computer (+ a completed form), see specification below.
- Assignment 3. Sample of previous work (+ a completed form), see specification below.
The total score (maximum 120 points) then forms the basis for ranking the eligible applicants. The applicants with the highest score are accepted and the others are placed on the reserve list. Note: The application pressure is high (in 2020, 2021 and 2022 there were way over 100 applicants) so the work tests are very important.

Submit the three work samples well in advance of the deadline (June 19) – so we have time to react if any file has become corrupt or has other problems.
If the file is >10 MB, we recommend that you use a web service that can send large files, for example https://sprend.com/ eller https://www.transfernow.net/
Send all three assignments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mark the email (subject) with ”VFX23 ARBETSPROV ”, the number of the assignment in question and your name.
