The Global Jaeger Contest Winners

Mon Jun 25, 2018, 1:42 PM
Slider-2 by dtab428The PacificRim #GlobalJaeger Contest is over, but who won? Check out the winners and all the other entries!

Pacific Rim Uprising put out the call and the DeviantArt Community answered! All the Global Jaeger Contest entries would do the Pentecosts proud, but these three stood out. Chosen by Director Steven S. DeKnight, we're happy to present the winners!

1STPlace

$6,000 USD, 6-month Core Membership, Poster signed by select cast, Pacific Rim Uprising Blu-ray/DVD signed by Steven S. DeKnight

Judge's comment:

"An extraordinary use of color and scale coupled with a truly unique Jaeger design. Beautiful work that could have easily been part of the concept art for the movie."

2NDPlace

$3,000 USD, 6-month Core Membership, Poster signed by select cast, Pacific Rim Uprising Blu-ray/DVD signed by Steven S. DeKnight

Judge's comment:

"A Jaeger that could have stepped right out of the movie! The action, composition, and masterful art work make this look like an actual poster that could have been in theaters around the world."

3RDPlace

$1,000 USD, 3-month Core Membership, Poster signed by select cast, Pacific Rim Uprising Blu-ray/DVD signed by Steven S. DeKnight

Judge's comment:

"The design work on the Jaeger is pitch perfect and the low angle perfectly adds to the scope and scale. And that fighting stance is something I’d definitely would have used in the movie!"





Check out the winners of the Pacific Rim Uprising Global Jaeger Contest and other Jaeger entries from around the world!

The results of the contests on this website never adhere to the prompt. The rules stated that the design had to be an original Jaeger positioned in the artist's home town. That's what made the concept unique, but yet again, the judge simply chooses whatever they want regardless of the required specifications. The art is great, but aside from the 1st place winner, the 2nd and 3rd show no distinct location, and the Jaeger designs are generic with no inspiration from any specific location. Some of the semifinalists really nailed the location and uniqueness of their Jaeger. At least two of the three of these do not. As previously mentioned, they look like generic movie concept art that did not at all adhere to the contest specs...and it seems the judge chose them based on their usefulness as concept art or movie posters. The Aztec semifinalist design really stuck in my memory, these did not. Another disappointing, nonsensical result. The art is great, but others stuck to the prompt and delivered fantastic artwork as well.

I agree the design of the jaegers for the contest winner could be a lot more creative looks like any other giant robot ive seen before. the winner only really had good scenery and scale. Not  good robot design. I think the third felt most like pacific rim to me. and yeah they could have been much more inspired by the artists location.

the work that placed third should've earned the first place -- it actually looks like a jaeger with a unique design. While the first place winner has great technique, as a few peeps noted before, the upper body design makes zero practical sense. I am fine with some of the semi finalists being works that do not necessarily look like jaeger designs -- extremely unique visions of mechas with great executions should be acknowledged, but the final winners should be works that display not just great technique and composition, but actually original and more or less practical jaeger designs, after all, one of the criteria for selection was stated to be depiction of the contest theme, which is international JAEGERS, not international random bots. end or rant.

yeah the design of the winner jaeger makes no sense. and i think the bot should be the most important element not backdrop or composition this is a PACIFIC RIM contest not a scenery contest. jaeger design should be #1

You know, you guys could've specified you wanted concept art instead of just "Put your own Jaeger in your hometown with whatever style you like" if I have known that the contest's aim was to create concept art matching the movie's visual style, I would've aimed accordingly to that.

I'm really disappointed. I thought it would be a jaeger challenge , not common bots. The first place looks really good, but this robot is useless and in addition to the size does not come close to the topic. In semi finals it was the same. The big bear won the competition. Aztec figurine, mech from anime and evangelion who has blades instead of hands. I do not want to believe that Mr. Steven S. DeKnight evaluated this not very original works. Of course, I congratulate all winners, but I am very disappointed with this competition.

There only 2 deserved to win this time, the 2nd must be the 1st rank, and the 1st should be replaced because i think De Knight love family features more than finding the composition idea for future concept, it's too short for a normal jeager honestly,we will only see his legs if he's over 50 meters tall from that distance.
But winners are here right now and that doesnt change anything, this contest is basically the playground for pro-artists only but we were allowed to join due to the rule copied from others contests saying artistic skill is unlimited.
