MyToons Partners with QD3 Entertainment for Art Contest

Online Animation Community Invites All Artists to Submit Art and Designs for a Chance to Help Brand the Upcoming Movie “Concrete Jungle” – Including Over $10,000 in Prizes to be Awarded

SEPTEMBER 11, 2008 – Los Angeles –, the world’s premiere online animation and art community, today announced the launch of its latest art competition, The Concrete Jungle. MyToons has teamed up with Grammy award winner and platinum music and film producer Quincy Jones III to give artists from around the world an opportunity to help brand his upcoming hip-hop and skateboard movie, Concrete Jungle. Artists everywhere are invited to submit original artwork and designs for a chance to have their work incorporated into the movie collateral and marketing materials of this ground-breaking new film. In addition, artists will also have a chance at over $10,000 in cash and prizes.

This ground-breaking film, produced by QD3 Entertainment takes an in-depth look at skateboarding, hip-hop and the convergence of the two cultures. The film also features some of today’s most innovative artists, including Pharrell Williams, Tony Hawk, Paul Rodriguez Jr. and many more.

Concrete Jungle takes a look at one of the least understood aspects of urban culture – it's hip-hop, it's taking it to the streets with a skateboard, it's life, and it's art,” says QD3 Founder, Quincy Jones III. “Art is definitely an integral part of defining this pop-culture phenomenon. Partnering with MyToons and reaching out to its growing community of artists just made sense – it’s a natural fit. We look forward to seeing how the artists are inspired by Concrete Jungle.”

On September 19th, 2008, the celebrity judging will begin with three semi-finalists chosen and announced every Friday. The 30 semi-finalists will then move on to the next round of judging, where 10 lucky finalists will be chosen and put in the running for the Grand Prize. Finalists will each receive a designer 2GB Mimobot USB flash drive, courtesy of Mimoco. On December 3rd, the grand prize winner and two runners-up will be announced. In addition to this once-in-a-lifetime movie branding opportunity, the grand prize winner will also take home a cash prize of $2000, with the runners-up receiving $500 each.

We have such a wide variety of talented creators with unique and distinctive styles,” says, Paul Ford, President of MyToons. “We are eager to see how everyone is inspired to create cutting-edge art for this ground-breaking film, and we’re thrilled to be able to share this opportunity and to help build bridges between the incredible talent of the MyToons community and some of the most influential leaders in Hollywood.”

The Concrete Jungle Contest launches September 11th, 2008. Submissions will be accepted through November 21st, and winners will be announced on December 3rd, 2008. For complete rules and details, please visit
