Vallejo Painting Awards is an annual gaming miniature painting contest organized by Cosmic Group/Cosmic Games in collaboration with Acrylicos Vallejo, Play: Il Festival del Gioco and Buyers Club.

First edition was a success, with near a hundred registrations and very special guests! Willing to replicate, the second edition was meant to be on 13th September 2020 at Modena Fiere during PLAY Festival del Gioco fair, but due to current pandemic all events of such magnitude have been cancelled.

That's why we decided to make this edition of Vallejo Painting Awards DIGITAL! Soon we'll publish all infos about how to submit your works to the jury, in the meantime categories, subscription time limit and subscription method remain unchanged! 

The contest is divided into various categories, with only one common trait: miniatures must come from any boardgame or wargame actually on the market.

The miniature scale in general must be from 25mm up, lower sizes can't be presented in any category.

In addition to the Main Event, there will be a Side Event all about Dungeons & Dragons Wizkids Miniatures.
