Pixelhunters will award each category winner with a statuette designed especially for the awards. There will be also special prizes given by the sponsors in several of the categories. What people can expect most from The Middle East Talents Awards is a platform where talented people can express their creativity. It's a platform to meet other people with great skills, and to find jobs within the industry. But this is something much more than a recruitment drive: the awards are educational and are aimed at targeting the next generation of industry professionals. We're working with top industry experts and artists to mentor the winners and are ready to help advise how to take their skill to the next level.
