  1. Do we submit the model we create or just the render?

  2. Hi Robert, render is enough.

  3. Should the model be textured

  4. Hi Josh, yes it should. But it’s not an official condition – it depends on you. You want to make the best overall impression. 🙂

  5. mmmaddela /

    can we take a picture reference available on the internet or the concept needs to be mine and original?

  6. mmmaddela /

    Can you please define ‘abstract object’? also when you say a girl robot,should it be looking like a human or any form of robot just in female avatar?

  7. hi.
    how can u understand who is pro?
    i`ve just started 3d max for about 2 month 🙂
    you said: competition is for beginners or intermediate artists. If you are a pro…. this is not for you
    i want to participate,:(:(:(

  8. You should respect copyrights and resulting artwork needs to be yours and original. As for reference images – of course you can use them.

  9. Thats completely your choice. Those themes are broad and your interpretation of them is part of your creativity and thats something what we would like to see! 🙂

  10. Hi Maryam, Im not quite sure if I understand your concerns. If you started with modeling just few months ago, thats perfect and you can join our competition. Pro is basically someone who gets paid for what they do.

  11. mmmaddela /

    hey, Thank you paloj. However I am still not clear about ‘abstract object’. Can you please explain or give a link on your site which represents Abstract. 🙂 Thank you.

  12. Hi mmmaddela. Abstract object – try to google for some examples. Lets say something like this:

  13. mike670 /


    How many entries are we allowed to put in?

  14. Hi mike670! One submission per person please 🙂

  15. Vladimir /

    can we use PS or AE for post effects?

  16. Is this competition is for everyone or just for few countries like USA and Canada?
    I am located in India, can I be a part of this and how will you know if the project is submitted by a pro or beginners?

  17. Vladimir: You should not. Depends on what you want to do. If you use those tools, we will ask you to submit your wireframe too.

  18. @Vihaan: this competition is open to all countries where its legal, so not just USA and Canada. As for your other question: we ask everyone to submit a bit of information about himself.

  19. Vladimir /

    i forgot to say, i would use PS or AE for abstract theme, to help me out with glow or something like that

  20. @Vladimir: Just remember to submit your wireframe too, please.

  21. juan leon /

    hi, excuse me, the animals or the robot girl can be like cartoon style? thanks

  22. juan francisco /

    hi, excuse me, we can model cartoon style too? thanks

  23. Hello Juan, of course you can. This is about your creativity. So show it to us 🙂

  24. satya DV /

    Can I use ref material for 3d model?

  25. Hey, is there any forum where we can post our unfinished work and get comments and ideas from other members? or check out submitted works?

  26. crowhat /

    Hello, a quick question: can the animal be extinct or fictional?

  27. @crowhat, yes it can. that depends on you.

  28. once the competition is done, you get the work’s copyright we submit. I have a question about that: can i still publish that work on my webpage or modify it in anyway or is it now only your right? asking about the work i sent, of course.

  29. @andres> You can not publish submitted artwork anywhere on the web without previous agreement with us. Of course you can modify submitted artwork, create new model based on that and publish it somewhere else.

  30. juan francisco /
