Middle East Talents Awards is announcing the winners

Middle East Talents Awards, together with Pixelhunters, 3D Artist, Chaos Group, CG Record and Stylus Copywriting, go hand in hand in bringing brightness to the world of undiscovered talents in Middle East. We hunt for individuals who have strong interest in showing their talents in digital arts. We would like to recognize that talent and give them the support they need as a budding artist by giving them the platform of learning, fun and sense of competition.

 

We were astonished by the hundreds of entries submitted for nine different categories from different individuals across the world. We are more than happy to see a lot of aspiring individuals trying to make a difference through their skills. We are overwhelmed with the number of people wanting to be somebody in the industry. Above all, we are so delighted to be a part of their humble beginnings as young professionals.

 

With an overwhelming 569 submissions, we decided to not just pick a winner for a particular category. We would also like to notice the talents across the entire section. Some of our artists have multiple artworks that show their uniqueness and skilful hands in different categories that is why we would like to award not just their single masterpiece but the artist himself as a whole. Since META is all about discovering talents, all awarded artists will be featured along with their best outputs.

 

Today, we announce the first winners of Middle East Talents Awards. May this be an encouragement to all individuals who have hopes of becoming an artist to continue showing the world that their talents can make a difference.

Career path for young people

Knowing What Hinders Them and How to Deal With It Have you started thinking about which career to take?

 

Some people may think that choosing a career path might be as easy as picking a major. Well, this is not generally the case. Planning your career is a little bit complicated and is considered a tough process by most individuals. This is the reason why you should take the steps needed and act accordingly in a very attentive way.

 

One good example are young individuals showing their interest in the arts industry. The evolution of digital arts in that matter brought about hundreds of young people wishing to take part in the breakout. The thing about digital arts industry is that it changes constantly. It is dynamic by nature. Without professionals to teach young minds, one digital artist can never ride along the bandwagon of innovation. It is due to this example that you should study your field well and know how to catch up with it. This is also the reason why one digital artist should consider scouting for internship opportunities in order to go along with the updates and trends.

 

Yes, there are different programs that have been developed by companies and universities in order to help young people jumpstart their career. Moreover, these choices allow young jobseekers to narrow their choices and find a path that yields success. However, just like any path, there is always a rough part of the road. It is common to see a lot of young individuals facing challenges and it is more common to see them feeling lost. If you are in this situation, then learn to do something about it.

 

Survival of the Fittest for Young People in the Job hunting Market

 

During the current economic climate which is originally described as the most challenging labour scenario for young people, market researchers found out that most of these young jobseekers are overwhelmed with high competition, low demand and speed of digital process of recruitment that seems like moving faster than ever. Because of the vast competition, it is a little bit challenging for these young individuals to catch up with the highlights in the labour market.

 

There has been many researches that highlight the hardships these young people face in today’s job hunting arena. With a competitive economy, most individuals find it a little bit daunting to enter the work force, making it vulnerable for young ones to fall on underemployment and even unemployment at its worst.

 

Competition- It is indeed one of the challenges that these professionals face. In this digital era, the entire recruitment process has been made easier and faster. This is why some people seem to be unaware of the available job openings nearby their area. They also do not know that a quicker response to any job posting is required to determine success. This is particularly accurate in the digital arts market. Since most of these professionals are taking their game online, it follows that a fast moving process online also makes it available to almost everybody. In fact, these kinds of vacancies are easily filled, causing the employers to close the applications within few days and even hours.

 

Finding Employment in a Tight Economy

 

One of the best ways to jumpstart your career is to begin working on your passion projects during your free time. If you are a struggling digital artist, start it off. Having such activities and hobbies related to it will validate your diligence and efficiency. These are actually some of the qualities every employee is looking for. It could be related to any of the following:

 

• Participating in voluntary works related to your career

 

• Creating and building your online portfolio and blog posts

 

• Attending workshops and seminars

 

• Taking technical courses and scouting for open internships and trainings.

 

If you are going to engage yourself to these options, you will increase your chances of landing a job and even getting yourself ready. Sometimes, an individual who starts to interact with other people who share his passion is capable to get employed easily through recommendations or social media platforms sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn.

 

In a firm labour market, it is hard to get employed. Nevertheless, don’t stop sending your resume and portfolio. Take the proactive way of calling a possible employer or ask the employed people if their companies have openings or accept internships. If you are able to identify your strengths and determine which ones you like doing the most, you won’t make mistakes in taking your career path.
