More About the Contest

Warning - This is a Blender Software Contest Only

Additional software can be used such as Substance and Zbrush, however Blender must be an integral part of your project.

The main goal of this challenge is to improve your Blender skills, have a bit of fun and to create a new project for your portfolio.

Why Blender?

We wanted to create this dedicated contest because we were so impressed with the latest release of their free software and we believe it’s a great package for all junior artists to learn. Plus, they have overhauled their rendering system and it has an incredible unbiased rendering engine that we want you to push to its limits.

The Brief

Everyone loves Summer, and everyone has fond memories of what makes this time of year special to you. We want you to share this with us and create a 3d rendering that best represents this. As the title suggests, Photorealism is going to play a big part in this challenge. Your entry could be an exotic beach location, an animal basking in the summer sun or even a melting ice-cream. The topic is completely up to you!
