On Tuesday evening, May 15th, with excitement running high,
UbiSoft  Toronto held this year’s NXT Showcase awards presentation. The five finalists for each category were present along with faculty members from many Ontario university and college programs, some family, and UbiSoft employees. As usual, the atmosphere was warm, positive… and the food was great!

The pic below was taken before the announcements of winners. Dhenzel Obeng and close friend Zabi Hassan, also an MTM 2018 Concept Art grad, and a current concept artist at UbiSoft, joined Tina Seemann (she took the pic) and me in celebrating the fact that Dhenzel made it as a finalist, an honour in itself!
