VR Watercraft Challenge

VR Watercraft Challenge


Remember the "Voyage Voyage" song by Desireless?

We'll, I don't really know how that's related to the challenge we're making, but we're about to take a voyage ourselves, with the new VR Watercraft competition.

The concept of the competition is broad, but hopefully you'll love to challenge yourself - ships, boats, canoes, kayaks - everything that can be placed on water (and don't sink) goes. The theme of your design is up to you - whether it's a futuristic, VR fitting boat, a steampunk or an army ship, we'll welcome every original concept to this challenge!

The only rule you have to take - don't make your masterpiece over 50,000 polygons.

We have some great prizes to look for, teaming up with Topogun, Suburb, PixPlant, Exlevel, Fox Renderfarm, Visual Designer, Cheetah3D, Rendering Systems and iCube R&D Group - a great amount of our friends adding some glamour to the challenge and total prize pool reaching $5000.

Let's prepare for our trip!

                    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 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 September to the 28th of November 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.

                    Help
