Put simply, there would be no contests without the incredible support we have from our sponsors. We are humbled to work with so many incredible people who are passionate about supporting the next generation of creative minds.



3dtotal was founded in 1999 as a simple 3d resource website. Over the following years the site evolved into one of the world’s premier CG art websites, offering a variety of training products, an inspirational gallery, free texture libraries and hundreds of free tutorials on a variety of subjects. To this day 3dtotal continues to promote talented artists around the world and share insightful tutorials on a growing number of topics but has also established itself as one of the most exciting art book publishers in the world today, working with incredibly talented artists from a range of professional creative fields.


Blender Market

The Blender Market was created to empower indie artists & developers using the software we all love. We are all Blenderheads who eat, sleep and bleed Blender and our goal is to give our community a trusted platform for making a living with Blender. Launched by CG Cookie in 2014, the Blender Market is a place where Blender artists are able to elevate their passion for Blender into a career. Our vision was to create a sustainable and stable environment for developers & artists, allowing them to get paid for doing what they love creating custom tools, and incentivizing them to deliver assets and add-ons that are invaluable to the community.


CG Cookie

We create brilliant training for animation artists and game developers. With streaming videos made by a team of VFX and game addicts, we teach 3D based on open-source software Blender, and game development based on Unity. Our goal is to teach digital art the right way: focusing on WHY rather than just showing HOW. With tutors who are not anonymous droids but real humans who respond to emails and say hi via live stream, and an incredibly supportive global community of 1000s of artists working towards their dreams, CG Cookie is the most fun alternative to a traditional art school (minus the tuition loans).



The Only Curated CG Marketplace - High-quality training & resources by the world's best artists.
