2019 // COMING SOON

The Light and Dark Secondary School Character Competition is back for 2019!

Light and Dark is the country’s largest character design competition for Year 11, 12 and 13 students.  For the past six years, secondary school students from across New Zealand have been invited to create a character that displays two contrasting emotions (one ‘light’ and one ‘dark’) with the competition being judged by some of New Zealand’s top creatives.


Presented by Animation College and Yoobee School of Design, there will be big prizes up for grabs, including a major prize of a scholarship to our schools and big prizes from our stellar sponsors.


The dates are to be confirmed but keep an eye out - announcements will be coming soon. Character design workshops will be hosted across the country as part of the competition.

So what are you waiting for? Register now to be the first to hear once the competition opens.
