Once upon a time, in winter, when cats were purring on the stove and the scent of cozonac was sweetening the air, you went asleep listening to a fairytale told by your grandmother. Then a dream started, with unearthly creatures, yourself, and a beautiful princess named Ileana Cosânzeana…that kinda looked like Daenerys Targaryen. 

Bet you now want to close your eyes and let yourself dream again.  

This is exactly what we’re tempting you to do. Use your craft and imagination to shape worlds!

You’ll also have the chance to win a Wacom Intuos Pro M Graphics Tablet, as well as get to know us better and let yourself be known at AMC România #AMCInternships. 

As of today, we are launching our 3D Romanian Mythology Art Challenge for all the world shapers whose dreams are crafted like nothing in this world. 

Design a character or an environment inspired from the Romanian mythology, give us something to dream about and say “this kid’s got talent!”.
