Just in time for the annual "back-to-school" season, Canadian software maker procreate today announced the "Paint Your Future" art contest. Students can create original artwork using the company's Painter 7, and submit it by October 31, 2002, to procreate, for a chance to win one of several prizes, including $2500 USD, $1500 USD, or a Wacom tablet. Two contest categories have been established: category one is for high schoolers, while category two is aimed at university and college students. Categories one and two have respective grand prizes of $1,500 and $2,500. Students can also receive a $30 USD / $50 CDN mail-in rebate when purchasing the academic version of Painter 7 from procreate.
