Thursday, May 9 was a great evening at Ubisoft Toronto, and a great evening for Max the Mutt’s 2 finalists. In a year when none of the year 4 students entered, Sergi Iranzo, who just completed his second year, came in third, and 2018 graduate Adam Homonylo came in second for Concept Art in the Ubisoft Nxt Awards competition.

Congratulations to all the competitors and to Damir Musken – of Fanshawe College, who won first prize!

Max the Mutt 2018 grad, and 2018 winner, Dhenzel Obeng was there and so was Zabi Hassan, 2018 graduate and third place winner in 2017. Both are now Concept Artists at Ubisoft Toronto.

One of the best things about social occasions like this is networking and, for students, getting encouragement and feedback from the pros. Sergi really appreciated getting a chance to speak with Pat.

Our top priority is to ensure students can finish the year and that they are still getting a proper and excellent learning experience, while also making sure everyone is safe and healthy. 

At this time, we will be moving all diploma courses to an online format for the remainder of the school year. We are working carefully with instructors as we develop a course-by-course plan to ensure students do not miss out on any learning, while also ensuring we do not place any undue burden on our instructors. 

While we are operating online, our physical location and office are temporarily closed.  Please email us at  info@maxthemutt.com for any inquiries. 
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will post updates here as we get them as well as sending emails to all students and instructors.

We will be moving our Portfolio Reviews and Tours to online-only. 

All planned events, talks, workshops, classes, etc. will not be taking place at the school. We are working hard to have as many things moved online that we can. Keep checking back for updates!
