All you have to do is upload an image or images to the gallery before next Monday ( June 4th ). Then on Monday as a random time (basically as soon as we get our butts to the studio) the CG Cookie Crew will take a vote and choose the best image from each site. The community may also vote on the best image by pressing the heart icon next to your favorite image by Monday as well.

Gallery Contest

Hello and welcome to a gallery contest! Submit your best work

With the New Blender Gallery upgrade in full swing, Summer knocking at our door and Wes starting to grow a beard, we wanted to give the new gallery a good thorough stress test and so we thought “Lets have a Gallery Contest!”

Congrats to the winners!

How to enter

All you have to do is upload an image or images to the gallery before next Monday ( June 4th ). Then on Monday at a random time (basically as soon as we get our butts to the studio) the CG Cookie Crew will take a vote and choose the best image from each site. The community may also vote on the best image by pressing the heart icon next to your favorite image by Monday.

You may upload as many images as you would like, but remember we value quality, not quantity.

Upload Guidelines

  1. Upload your image to this site
  2. JPGs are recommended, less then 1600px wide, smaller then 1MB.
  3. A good description along with the image to show off your work.
  4. Make sure the work is of your own.
Note: Only images uploaded after the time of this post will be considered for the contest.

Judging

You will be judged on “overall first impressions”. I know this isn’t very scientific,  but this contest is meant to be low stress and fun. Basically judges will review all entries/uploads, and the ones that strikes their fancy the most will win. Of course what goes into the overall first impression is; Modeling, Texturing, Lighting, Materials and Composition
