let's get started

It’s now up to you to create your very own ‘Warbb World’. No matter which style of design you prefer, we challenge everyone to come up with the most unique worlds. In order to participate in this challenge you will need the same blank canvas as everyone else. We made a blank 3D box with a fixed element for which you have to find a way to make it work in your ‘Warbb World’. You can find the needed assets through the button below.

what to look out for

This challenge is meant for creators to have fun, show of their amazing skills and possibly win some amazing prizes. Nevertheless this challenge comes with some rules as to what you are allowed to do. You have to make sure that whatever you will create is being done with the boundaries of the 3D box in mind. In the final artwork the shape of the box should still be recognizable. The camera and the geometry of the laptop cannot be changed. However, you are allowed to change the textures of the laptop. Make sure the final animation is rendered at 30 frames per second with a total of 300 frames.

All entries that don’t make use of the provided assets will not be taken into consideration for the prize pool.

The challenge kicks off on Friday January 20th and runs until Sunday, February 19th.
All entries submitted after the 19th of February will not be taken into consideration for the prize pool.

keep it clean

We are hosting a fun challenge for all creators and therefore want to create a safe environment for everyone. This includes all creators, but also everyone checking out the amazing artworks done by you. In order to keep everything clean and appropriate for all audiences, we have a couple of don’ts for your submission.

The submission must not contain material that is inappropriate, indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, slanderous or libellous; The submission must not contain material that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age

These are just two rules to make sure we run a clean challenge and everyone can have as much fun as anyone else. Before jumping in on this challenge, make sure you read through the full terms and conditions by clicking on the button below.

show us what you got

Alright, you’ve put your heart and soul in this unique ‘Warbb World’ of yours and you are ready to send in your submission. We’ll be using ArtStation to create a central spot where we can collect and check out all of your amazing artworks. All you need to do, is upload your submission to ArtStation and include the hashtags #WarbbWorld and #NVIDIAStudio in the title and description. The judges will be checking out the entries during the challenge and occasionally highlight some of them through various social media platforms.

but wait, there is more

You just uploaded your submission to Artstation, your artwork is looking fire and the waiting game begins. What if we told you there is another awesome prize up for grabs.
