Let's travel without borders and restrictions by using 3D art and imagination. Lots of beautiful buildings around the world are waiting for visitors. Explore them and tell us about your favorite ones.

The idea: help everyone to be involved in a short virtual traveling around the World, discover new countries, and see iconic buildings.

What you need to do: Сreate a 3D work with a famous building from your country to help other participants to see this beautiful place. Tell its history and why it's the best place to visit.

We invite all 3D artists to participate. Don't forget to read the rules of the contest.

The contest is supported by the best companies in the 3D world, and so the prizes for the first places look amazing. Also, everyone has an opportunity to receive additional prizes. Read conditions at the bottom of the page.

We're waiting for your works from March 17 to June 3.

Good luck and happy rendering!

  • 2)

    The famous place can be exterior or interior (e.g. Sistine Chapel) - we don't limit your creative ideas. But we will not accept simple rooms, interior flats, not existed office buildings and suburban houses - it must be a recognizable place.

  • 3)

    Your entry must be a 3d rendered image. Environment should be made in 3D - it doesn't have to be an exact copy of location, you can add your own version of "small things" in design; we permit the use of HDRi for sky and some parts of landscape. No texture/polycount limit.

  • 4)

    Renders with solid background (one color: black, white etc), test renders, not completed pixelated and low quality 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.

  • 5)

  • 6)

    Enhancing your rendering in post is allowed – That includes things like color adjustments, compositing render layers/passes, and adding effects like smoke, fire, particles, etc. Adding photographic elements (like cut out characters or vegetation) or doing paintovers or photobashing is not allowed.

  • 7)

    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).

  • 8)

You are free to make WIP on any CG website: ArtStation, CgSociety, Polycount, Behance etc (please don't use temporary storages, such as Dropbox, Google Drive etc and social networks, such as Facebook, Instagram etc). WIP must contain main steps of modeling. Works without WIP will not be accepted.

    Please, provide your work with a short story: history of the building and why it's the best place to visit.
