3D Model Competition Marks 2nd Anniversary of CG Trader

CGTrader, the 3D model marketplace, is celebrating its second anniversary since the launch of the service. To make it a special one, the company is organising a 3D Model Competition and as a birthday wish, they are inviting all the 3D modelers and artists to participate.

The challenge offers participants a great opportunity to get visibility for their 3D models and try out selling them online. The setup of the competition seems to be more about “lets-have-a-good-time” than highly serious: in order to participate you must comply with these two rules:

  1. You are a fanatical 3D model designer.
  2. Follow rule number 1.

If you pass the extremely strict qualifications (i.e. comply with those rules), all you really need to do is to choose the best 3D models you have and upload your models to the CGTrader website before 15th March 2013. By doing that you are automatically a participant in the competition. Listed below you can find the nominations and prizes. There are two award categories, and each of them will have one winner and two runner-ups.
