In the Fall, we were running a Sports & Hobbies themed 3D challenge. We know, quite some time has passed since the challenge was closed, but we have finally decided the winners and hope to get the amazing prizes delivered before the holidays start :) So, without further ado, let’s see who created the models that left the judges in awe.

“It’s great to know that no matter how complicated and tedious 3D production process might be, the artists still manage to see beyond the technical limitations and use powerful software as freely as a simple canvas, creating meaningful and strikingly beautiful work,” says Kirill Tokarev, one of the judges of CGTrader Awards and editor-in-chief at 80.lv. And we cannot agree more with Kiril. The artwork submitted for CGTrader Awards in just a bit more than two months is exceptional: the quality is impressive, detail and realism achieved are mind-blowing, and engagement from global artist community is something we could not have imagined to have in the very first year of these awards.

Tanner Kalstrom of GameTextures: "For each material you have at hand, instead of creating, you save around 1 to 3 days of production time and costs"
There are 20 different categories of 3D models varying from food and interior to military and science on CGTrader. However, there are many 3D modeling related tools and things making 3D designer life easier that we simply cannot ignore those on our marketplace. We are happy to inform you that category Textures has been added to the growing list. Now you can browse through a library of beautifully-made materials and find the best suited, ready-to-use textures to prepare game-ready models, upgrade your asset library, and improve your 3D works.

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!

Talking about our challenges, the first thing that comes to our head is "another one bites the dust.." And so it's finally time to publish the winners of the VR Watercraft challenge - please note that due to not enough eligible entries to the portfolio category, we will be awarding 4 winners for best model category, with the portfolio prizes going to the 2nd place winner.
Now, all aboard to the winners (who, as we mentioned, hopefully won't sink)!
