Time is running out to join CGTrader’s biggest art competition!

This year, we set out on an ambitious goal: to bring together 2D and 3D digital art under the CGTrader Digital Art Competition. As the September 30 deadline draws ever nearer, there’s less than a week left to jump in and enter your works!

More than 3,200 artworks are vying for prizes worth more than $60,000 in the CGTrader Digital Art Competition, which has already surpassed our last massive art competition, the CGTrader Awards 2017, which saw over 3,000 entries compete for a prize pool of $50,000.

Three winners will be announced for each of the six categories on October 31. The Character Illustration category is the most popular one, with close to half of all submissions in the competition. In addition the category winners, two works of art that gather the most likes in the competition gallery will win the Public Award, so share your work with everyone and vote for your favorites!

There is still time to participate – go to the competition page and enter your best 2D and 3D works today!
