For a fifth and exciting year, the Ubisoft Toronto NXT Showcase highlighted the incredible talent of video game development student from schools across Ontario. In 2018, students from 23 schools throughout the province competed to win a summer apprenticeship in Animation, Concept Art, Modelling or Programming at the Ubisoft Toronto studio.
This year’s winner are:
Armand Mech (Sheridan College) winner of the Model Art Apprenticeship
Dhenzel Obeng (Max the Mutt) winner of the Concept Art Apprenticeship
Duke Alphonse Sanchez (Durham College) winner of the Animation Apprenticeship
Wesley Ducharme (Niagara College) winner of the Programming Apprenticeship
The winning students will make the transition from student to game developer in the coming weeks as they will join the studio for three-month apprenticeships where they will work with some of the industry’s top talent creating AAA open world video games.
