We are conducting our Annual Survey and we could really do with your help. The survey allows us to better understand the challenges of trying to break into the creative media industries. It also gives us a chance to improve The Rookies and focus on creating better content to help you on your journey.

The survey normally takes about 10 minutes. Knowing this, we always feel it's fair to run a sweepstakes in return for your time, so... 1 x random person that completes the Annual Survey will win an:

Autodesk Media & Entertainment Collection valued at US$2,145.

The bundle includes 9 premium software titles: Maya, 3ds Max, Mudbox, Motionbuilder, Sketchbook Pro, 5 Arnold licenses.

Get a comprehensive set of content creation tools and services that expand the workflows of Maya and 3ds Max. The collection provides an end-to-end creative solution for animators, modelers, and visual effects artists in film, TV, games, and design visualization.

Take a moment to think about what this incredible bundle could mean to you. You could start working as a freelancer. You could render with Arnold and use other fully loaded professional licenses for your next project. Oh yeah, and you could make your friends crazy jealous!

We really look forward to hearing how things are going for aspiring artists out there. Before you run off and start answering the survey, we would also like to thank our incredible sponsor Autodesk for providing such an incredible prize. Get over there and drool over their bundle.
