With judges that are leading experts in the major fields of the 3D entertainment industry, and with over $30,000 worth in prizes, this competition is the biggest they have ever organised!
Create an image of any kind of environment!
Images can be in any style and genre, realistic or imaginary, as long as the natural environment is visually predominant. You can use imported objects and figures, but keep in mind that the judges will focus primarily on the quality of the 3D landscape.
Main and Academic Categories
For the first time, the competition will have 2 distinct categories, with specific prizes for both.
The main category is opened to every Artist (professionals and hobbyists), and the second category will be dedicated to Students.
To keep things simple, all entrants will submit their entry to the same gallery, however, Students must add an Academic watermark to their submission to be considered for the e-on Academic category.
Learn more from the Competition rules page.
Authorised Software Packages
You may use your application of choice, in combination with any of the e-on software products. This includes any version of VUE (Esprit, Studio, Complete, Infinite or xStream), including the free Personal Learning Edition and the free VUE Pioneer.
You may also use PlantFactory, Carbon Scatter, CloudFactory, and LumenRT or their respective PLEs and trial versions!
The 3D Environment competition is open to everyone, hobbyists and professionals alike. The judging will be based solely on the quality, originality and artistic merit of the images, not on the software used to create them.
In the first stage of the competition, e-on’s Picture of the Day contest team will select 10 finalists from all submissions in each category. The finalists’ images will be displayed on the e-on website, with links to their personal website/gallery. In the second stage, our judges will pick the winners out of the finalists.
