CG Watercraft Challenge

CG Watercraft Challenge

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain speaking...

With the new CG Watercraft challenge we're going into open water. Is your ship / boat/ yacht/ canoe/ kayak/ raft... ready? Let's sail together.

It's a broad and therefore challenging concept, but the opportunity to showcase your realistic, vintage, steampunk, fantasy, army or futuristic watercraft designs will excite every pirate and sailor wannabe. If not that, then maybe the challenge of creating something that will leave your peers and judges in awe is something that will cause a storm inside of you. We're looking for high quality 3D watercraft models to strengthen our fleet.

Turn on your creativity mode and start uploading, as there are some kick-ass prizes to be won: Thea Render Studio licenses + all available plugins 3DS,C4D,SketchUp,Rhino by Solidiris, Toolbag 2 license by Marmoset, Subscription for 3 months by Pluralsight and cool prizes by CGTrader.

We're just beginners when it comes to captain talking, but all hands hoay! (= everyone get on the deck!)

              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 Watercraft 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 1st of April to the 4th of June 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.
