The deadline of Designer Schwag competition has passed, so what’s next?

The deadline of Designer Schwag competition has passed, so what’s next?

Yesterday, August 27th, was the last day to submit your entries for Designer Schwag challenge on CGTrader. Those who submitted their work are definitely eager to learn the winners and we surely don’t want to keep you all in the unknown, so here is a quick update on what is going to happen now.

As the challenge is a bit more tricky than usual, there is an inevitably longer process associated and a few steps we need to complete before announcing the winners. We have received over 500 submissions, many of which in the last days of the competition, and though a number of 3D models have been reviewed throughout the competition, the latest submissions still need to be checked. As we have promised, those who entered the competition before the deadline, will be evaluated and even given a bit of time to re-submit assets if some technical problems are noticed.
