RAW is a live illustration battle. It's a contest for visual artists of all kinds: pros and rookies. It's about talent, courage, networking and fun. It's about learning, inspiration, community and opportunity.

The contestants in RAW first compete in online qualification rounds and the best of them get to clash at a live event. We have been organizing these events for five years now and they have been extremely successful and popular with both the artists and the audience.

RAW is not only fun for those that attend to watch, but also an opportunity for talented young artists. Several of the contestants had their professional illustration careers started by winning at RAW.

We are already working on next year's RAW. Check out our Facebook page.
