I’d like to welcome you to the first ever Blendswap model competition. In this new
opportunity for Blender artists, we’re offering fabulous prizes for the best military
vehicle models. A variety of categories are available, so there’s no excuse for not
entering. Simply grab an idea and start modeling! Once you’re done, all you have to do is upload your model to Blendswap under one of the special contest categories. At the end of the judging period, we’ll judge the best model in each category.
Models may be submitted to the following categories. Each model may belong to only one category.
Land Machines: tanks, APCs, and the like.
Walkers: Power suits, mechs, etc. Remember realism.
Air Power: Planes, jets, helicopters and similar vehicles. Space vehicles are not a focus of this competition.
Entries are due by 12:00 AM (CST) on September 30
