D23 Expo 2019 Design Challenge Now Open

D23 Expo 2019 Design Challenge Now Open

Where are my artists at?!  The D23 Expo 2019 Design Challenge is now officially open and you do not need to be a grim grinning ghost to enter it!

In case you did not guess it, the theme for the D23 Expo 2019 Design Challenge is Haunted Mansion.  This is actually the perfect theme as it is the 50th anniversary of the attraction at Disneyland Park.  Those entering the contest can also use Phantom Manor (Disneyland Paris) and Mystic Manor (Hong Kong Disneyland) as inspiration as well.  For a complete list of contest rules and to enter the contest, click on this LINK.  Entrants do not need to be members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club to enter the contest.

If you are interested in entering this contest, you must complete the Entry Form and submit 3 to 5 photos (and an optional video) of your completed artwork by the deadline.

The following criteria will be used to evaluate the entries:

  • Creativity (25%)
  • Originality (50%)
  • Artistic Expression (25%)

In all, 23 finalists will be selected and have their artwork displayed on the show floor at the D23 Expo 2019.  These finalists will also receive 2 complimentary one-day tickets to attend D23 Expo 2019 on Sunday, August 25, 2019.   A trophy will be awarded to the Grand Prize winner, second runner-up, and third runner-up.  The Grand Prize winner will also receive a prize of $2,300.
