Sometimes it feels like time just flies by – just a few weeks ago I invited a friend to take a chance and try his luck in CGTrader’s Real-life Objects PBR Challenge, and here it is already over and we need to announce the winners. After looking through more than 800 models submitted for this challenge, CGTrader team, together with partners from Quixel, Marmoset, 3D-Coat and Dosch Design, had quite a hard time to decide on only a few winning entries, but here they are - the best of the best in the two categories.

Watching the concept of design evolve is like a great movie. Once there was a time when people even had a real definition for it: for example, Oxford English dictionary defines design as “a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is made”. But does it really capture the complexity and variety of contexts the term is used in? 3D, interior, fashion, graphics, web, industrial, product, urban… all these words can be (and are, often!) followed by the term design. It actually seems there are only two things clear about it. The first - it encompasses sort of creativity in solution. The other - the area is evolving rapidly in both scope and depth that it is nearly impossible to track where design is going in various areas and how these diverse fields relate.

The PBR Challenge is over, and today we finally have the long awaited winners! We had quite a number of submissions and definitely a hard time selecting the best models, but here they are - the best of the best as selected by representatives of Marmoset, Allegorithmic, 3D-Coat and CGTrader. As we had two competitions running within the scope of PBR Challenge, we now have more winners (six to be precise) and thus - more prizes!

Another Challenge is done. With all the fuss surrounding the holidays, it took a while to find out the winners, but some things are definitely worth waiting for. The judges have spoken. These 5 models have been chosen as the best ones in the Furniture Set Challenge. Countdown from no. 5 begins here!
