CG Wildlife Challenge

CG Wildlife Challenge

We love nature and that includes the Third Dimensional one. That's why we can't have too many of nature-themed challenges!

Oh, since it's fun to keep trying the new things for the challenges, we're having this one a bit modified - naming three different categories for the competition - Animals, Plants and Environment. Choose the one that fits you best, put your ideas to the 3D, render them and create a memorable and worthy winner!

We're teaming up with FoxRenderfarm (Rendering fees), Exlevel (GrowFX Licenses), 3DCoat (Professional Licenses), Video Copilot (3D Shader Bundles), Dosch Design (Tree Libraries) and CGCookie (Memberships) to bring you the prizes worth fighting for!

                          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 'CG Wildlife' 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 28th of January 2016 to the 31st of March 2016 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.
