CG Furniture-set Challenge

CG Furniture-set Challenge

We're back with a new furniture-set challenge. Just when you thought you couldn't chair less...

Yes, that's right. Never did we have a contest like this - and that is exactly why we're doing it! Time to get of your couch and start modelling a full set of them. We're giving a little more than full two months to come up with a furniture set of your (or someone else's) dreams. 5 quality winners will be awarded after the competition, and we have a record number of sponsors to increase your set of available 3D tools.

Choose your sort of side - whether it's dining room, kitchen, office or bathroom - quality sets will be appreciated and rated at the end of the competition. Think you can be crowned a king of furniture sets?


If you're brave sort of a fellow, try Cebas moskitoRender - we've just expanded the list of renderers accepted on CGT, and starting with a trial version may lead you to winning a full version.

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 lose 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 lose the copyright.


How can I participate in the challenge?

Design a great looking 3D model for the 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 13th of October to the 19th of December 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.
