Boulder 20th Birthday Anniversary


Hi Everyone,

Following on from the announcement from Jenni on Friday I would like to open the floor to the Artblog part of the celebrations.

The competition will run from now until Thursday 3rd  December and the winners will be announced Friday 4th December


The Theme will be quite loose, anything that would highlight Boulder or the work we have done over the years!

  • What does working at Boulder mean to you?
  • What were your favorite shows to work on, or characters to work with!
  • Do you have any fond memories or funny moments over the years you can depict in a piece?
  • Or a Boulder Birthday card you would like to share.

Any medium is allowed, so be as creative as you like. You don't have to be able to draw to take part!!!!


Will be for the top three submissions

€150 1st prize;

€100 second prize;

€50 third prize

not a bad win just before Christmas!!!

How to take part.

Please upload your submissions here, on the "ArtblogNov2020" Teams pages so everyone can see the great work that you have submitted.

Submissions must be on the teams page no later than 5.30pm on Thursday 3rd of December

The final artwork will be popped into a voting application where the entire studio will be asked to vote for our top three winners!!!

Looking forward to seeing what you get up to.
