CG Flora & Fauna Challenge

CG Flora & Fauna Challenge

Summer is yet to come bringing joy and warmness not only to people, but also to all living creatures. Thus, we decided to take the opportunity and launch Flora and Fauna challenge as the upcoming season will certainly help you to get inspired for such a topic!

In nature, flora and fauna complement each other, but since you are given a blank page, it's up to you to decide whether to model only plants, animals (take a look at bear 3D model, venom 3D model or velociraptor 3D model if you're out of ideas!) or combine them together! Your models - our prizes. This time we have really great ones: memberships from CG Cookie, Grow FX licenses from Exlevel, Autograss licenses from Happy Digital, Plant Kits by Laubwerk, $1000 render fee by Rayvision, Transform and Signal tools by Greyscalegorilla and cool prizes from CGTrader.

Generate original ideas, put them into the 3D model and render, add as much quality as possible and win marvelous prizes worth more than $7,000!

                                          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 Flora and Fauna 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 29th of May to the 29th of July 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.
