3D Character Challenge

Want to participate in the challenge? All you have to do is to prove that your fantasy and professionalism is a more powerful potion than uranium or the famous deadly spell Avada Kedavra that was used by Lord Voldemort against Harry Potter.

Let your childhood beasts leave the wardrobe or get out from under the bed. Call all the 3d people and creatures like fairies, elves, goblins, dwarfs, owls, wizards, hobbits, witches, lizards, unicorns, centaurs, mermaids, princesses, giants you have ever read about to wake up from the book pages, to step off the TV screen (like a hulkbuster 3d model, anyone?) and to awake from the life of being a plush toy. Immediately design the character model of your choosing!

Then participate in this unique challenge with your original entries and... have all the chances to become the winner!

                                          Frequently Asked Questions

                                          Please go through these questions before contacting us

                                          What character 3D models are eligible for the challenge?

                                          Characters that are eligible for the challenge are defined in a broad sense starting from humans, animals, sculptures that convey a plot or a story to sci-fi, fantasy characters like robots, aliens and others.


                                          I have already published some of my character 3D models on CGTrader.com. Are they eligible for the challenge?

                                          No. Only 3D models uploaded in the period from the 2nd of August to the 15th of September 2013 will be treated as valid entries.


                                          How will you judge entries for the best 3d character portfolio award? What is more important: the quantity or the quality of uploaded 3D models?

                                          Both factors are highly important. For example, an author who submits a huge library of 3D models will have more chances to win. But the uploaded models must be of a high quality. Only exceptional models can win.


                                          Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

                                          Yes, absolutely. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.


                                          Can I sell my 3d models which participated in other challenges elsewhere?

                                          Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.


                                          Do price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

                                          No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.


                                          Do the price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

                                          No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.


                                          I want to participate in the challenge so I am going to delete my already uploaded models and upload them again to meet the "publishing period" requirement. Can I do that?

                                          No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the challenge.
