We would like to congratulate Dave Stolte, of Los Angeles for his big victory at Cut&Paste's 2nd Global Championship in the 2D competition this past Saturday.

We would like to congratulate Eugenio Garcia Villareal, of Mexico City for taking the top spot at Cut&Paste's 2nd Global Championship in the 3D competition on Saturday. Eugenio designed his packaged Tongue based on the assigned theme of Free Speech . With his title, Eugenio will become a virtual "Designer in Residency" with Shapeways, the world's leading 3D printer, as well as receive a copy of Adobe CS5 Master Collection. Congratulations again, Eugenio!!
We would like to congratulate Moritz Schwind, of Munich, representing Berlin for his big victory at Cut&Paste's 2nd Global Championship in the Motion Design competition this past Saturday.

The culmination of the Digital Design Tournament touches down in New York City
With the broad geographical reach of an Olympic event and the nervy psychological gamesmanship of the X Games, the championship takes the tournament’s international approach to design as spectator sport and amps it up like never before. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the final showdown. 10 cities sending their best 30 city champions in 2D Design, 3D Design, and Motion Design.
With the 2010 Tour complete, the best talents will converge in New York, onstage in its annual showcase of design as a fast-paced, high-intensity, internationally competitive spectator sport. Withstanding the pressure of judges hovering, music blaring, minutes ticking down on the clock, a fast-talking MC on the mic, and putting their reputations on the line, three competitors in each city have made claims to the Cut&Paste title. Now they will face off against each other, champions vs. champions, to see which designer will be crowned the worldwide winner.
As with city tournaments, the Global Championship will feature a tech setup that registers every mouse click and tapped command from the designers' workstations and projects them live and in real time on large-scale displays in full view of the audience. With all eyes on their every move, these designers will be giving a live performance to remember—they'll be competing for some serious bragging rights and gunning for the prize.
The Winner of the global Converse Audience Drawing Contest will also be announced at the Global Championship.
Cut&Paste is proud to announce its jury of acclaimed artists, designers, creative directors, and design media. They include Rama Allen of Digital Kitchen, acclaimed graphic artist, Jon Burgerman, Lori Cantu of Converse, Dave Chau of Big Spaceship, Matthias Hollwich of HWKN/Architizer, Cliff Kuang of Fast Company's Co.Design, Victor Newman of Bionic, Frederico Phillips of Tronic, Daniel Piwowarczyk of Lobo, David Schwarz of Hush, Matthew Waldman of Nooka, and Michael Waldron of nailgun*.
