3D Modeling Challenge: Fantasy Characters is over! Here are the winners

3D Modelling Challenge: Fantasy Characters has officially ended on 14th of November. Yet, it was truly special due to many reasons.

It was the first challenge since 2020, meaning our community has been really waiting for such contests to be back. For the challenge we collaborated with YAHAHA Studios which is a free no-code platform that helps your 3D creation get started easily. Our partners established a prize pool of $10,000 which was distributed to 15 different winners. We are glad to share that the challenge received more than 1,300 submissions uploaded by 706 different designers!
