Hey Blender heads,
Now that Blender 2.79 is out, we thought we’d celebrate this pivotal release with a little competition called BLENDER BEASTS.
Using Blender 2.79, create a still render of a scene featuring a creature from your favorite monster movie, or one of your own making, or something totally different (Beast could mean many things, right?). Pit your work against other contestants from all over the world for a chance to win up to $500 worth of credit so you can render your future projects here at our render farm, and bragging rights as we introduce you as our very first alpha 3d artist to our community. We’ll be sponsoring participants by way of a $50 starting credit bonus, so you can render your entries for free, and we’ll be judging your work based on creativity, technical prowess, and clever use of the theme. To learn more and to sign up visit our Blender Beasts page and prove yourself a top dog in the 3d art world!
Why are we doing this?
We love 3d, and believe that the Blender Foundation is at the forefront of creating a world where 3d content creation can be something for everyone – from professionals to young enthusiasts, and where the caliber of 3d artists is determined by the dedication and skill they put into their work, and not what software or plugins they can afford. It’s in this spirit that we created this Blender contest, as a salute to all the great things the Blender Foundation has done and is doing for the 3d industry, and as a means for us to encourage you guys to keep on blending, so that you can claim your place among the noted professionals in CG business.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can always drop us a message on our Facebook page. You can also try out our render farm for Blender, without joining the contest, by signing up here.
Good luck, and Happy Blending!
