General rules:

  • 1)

    Create a car 3D model, add 3D environment (you can create more than one car in the scene), textures. Then create a beautiful 3D rendering of it (or them). Think creative. We will accept also pickups, vans and small trucks. Tanks, huge trucks, buses, motorcycles as "main character" are not accepted.

  • 2)

    Your entry must be a 3d rendered image. Environment should be made in 3D; we permit the use of HDRi for sky and some parts of landscape. Works with photo background will not be accepted.

  • 3)

    The work must not have been previously published anywhere, neither online or offline. It must be original art created by you specifically for the challenge (no existing projects, stock models or concepts made by other artists).

  • 4)

    You have to submit a link to the "Work in process" to prove the authorship. Please add images of main steps of car modeling. You are free to make WIP on any website. Good examples: Maserati Boomerang, Already in Apocalypse, Drift and Double-decker. Works without WIP will not be accepted.

  • 5)

    You can submit only one work.

  • 6)

    To win the competition the quality and idea of the work are important. You need to think about the story behind the image. Make sure everything supports your message - composition, lighting, colors etc. Make a greater emotional impact.

  • 8)

    Add the link to the competition or name of the competition in one of the image corners.

  • 4)

    Renders with solid background (one color: black, white etc, test renders, screenshots) and models laid on wallpapers or on photos will not be admitted to take part in the competition. As well as works with adult content: not allowed works with blood, violence, erotic and political topics.

Other possibilities

  • 1)
