CG Environment Challenge

CG Environment Challenge

Environment. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when reading this word? Rocks? Trees? Maybe your hometown? Dozens of different scenarios and all of them are the right ones, as we decided not to put any limits on this challenge!

So remove the imaginary boundaries, turn on your fantasy and create the environment that you are or would like to be surrounded by. Yes, it means that your models can be both realistic and imaginary (take a look at sci fi 3D models for a little inspiration), just keep in mind that the natural environment should dominate.

It doesn't matter whether you are professional or just starting your path down the road to becoming a skilled 3D models artist - surprise the judges with the originality of the model / rendering, artistic skills, or quality, and win great prizes that will help you create even more amazing models.

The best visionary proposals will receive awesome prizes: DOSCH 3D: Splash Effects packages by Dosch Design, Colimo and RealPerception licenses by Motiva CG, plugins of choice by R&D Group, courses of choice by 3D Buzz, subscriptions for three months by Digital Tutors, credits and promotional features by CGTrader.

Compel us by recreating nature or designing a completely different environment to what we are used to live in! We want to see it!

                                      Frequently Asked Questions

                                      Please go through these questions before contacting us

                                      Do I need to upload files or only images of my 3D design?

                                      You need to upload files and images of your 3D design in order to participate in the challenge.


                                      I don't want to put my entry model for sale. Do you have any suggestions?

                                      Does earning money from your digital files sounds like a bad idea? Just try to put higher price on it, let's say 300 USD.


                                      I don't want to loose copyrights on my model after it is sold.

                                      There are General, Editorial and Custom licenses for you to choose under which you want to operate. Individuals or companies which bought your model can't use it for commercial purposes if it hasn't been changed. So no worries - you won't loose the copyright.


                                      How can I participate in the challenge?

                                      Design awesome 3D model for 3D CG Environment Challenge and upload it to CGTrader.


                                      What if I put the required tag on my already published 3D model on CGTrader - do you treat it as a valid entry?

                                      No. Only 3D models uploaded in the period from the 23rd of January to the 23rd of March 2015 will be treated as valid entries.


                                      Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

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


                                      Can I enter with 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.


                                      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.
