During the hybrid edition of The Art Department 2020, Playgrounds shares the stage with the community in a few different ways. There’s just so much undiscovered talent out there! We know this, and that’s why we’d like to open up our virtual stage with you! On the Talent Stage you can pitch yourself and your skills. The floor is yours!

Go bananas. However, we are interested in your personal projects. Commercial work will not be selected. 

Please note that your pitch is respectful to others, and does not include any references in word or images to resentful or pornographic content.
