Frequently Asked Questions

What game 3D models are eligible for the challenge?

Game-ready models which are good for competition are defined in a broad sense. Polygon limit of the model is 50k.

I have already published some of my game-ready 3D models on CGTrader.com. Are they eligible for the challenge?

No. Only 3D models uploaded in a period from the 29th of August to the 15th of October will be treated as valid entries.

How will you judge entries for the best 3D game models portfolio award? What is more important: the quantity or the quality of uploaded 3D models?

Both factors are highly important. For example, an author who submits a huge library of 3D models will have more chances to win. But the uploaded models must be of a high quality. Only exceptional models can win.

Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

Yes, free 3d models participate in challenge indeed. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.

Can I sell my 3D models which participated in other challenges elsewhere?

Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.

Do price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.

I want to participate in the challenge so I am going to delete my already uploaded models and upload them again to meet the ‘publishing period’ requirement. Can I do that?

No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the competition.

I want to participate in the challenge but I do not want to sell or share my 3D models. How can I solve this?

Simply but a higher price! Would you mind selling your 3D model for 2000$? Make such a price and take it easy.
