Love Layer Tennis? Get off the sidelines and seize an opportunity to show off your design skills—live on stage. Our friends at Cut&Paste are once again on the hunt for graphical savants ready to battle it out in their fourth global digital design tournament, which makes a strong case for design as spectator sport. Building on the success of its 2010 world tour, the design booster organization will host competitions in 2D, 3D, and motion design in a dozen cities (from New York to Seoul) to scout and spotlight talent for the big show: the Global Championship in March 2012. Select tournaments will feature Show&Tell presentations that promise “an insightful how-to with some of the brightest minds in the design community.” Have nerves of steel and a golden portfolio? Cut&Paste is now accepting applications to compete. The deadline for U.S. entries is Friday, September 30, while nascent design stars in Europe, Asia, and Latin America have a bit longer to apply. And if the idea of a live-action digital design smackdown has you scratching your head, check out the below video.
