Polywink Announces its First Flash 3D Contest - Fairy Tale


Have a magical spring and win 2500€ worth of prizes with Polywink’s "Fairy Tale" Flash Contest!

Once upon a time was an online platform called Polywink

Polywink generated blendshapes and facial rigs overnight, for any 3D model. Adventurers from the whole 3D realm gathered to have their model made ready for animation, in the blink of an eye. To reward them for their loyalty, the mages from Polywink organized a tournament: whoever presented the best render would be rewarded with one of Poywink’s special spells, free of charge.

And so was created our first Flash Contest, as a way to reward our community and to showcase the capacities of our tech, which can create blendshapes or rigging for any type of 3D character.

Do you think you can live up to the challenge? Win 2500€ worth of prizes and live happily ever after by entering our contest here!

How can I enter this contest?

All you need to do is send us your best Fairy Tale themed render of one of your characters. You can even submit a model you’ve made for previous uses! The only requirement is to own the rights to said model.

- All submissions must be based on humanoid 3D head models.
- Entries do not have to be original models specifically made for this challenge. You can use any model you’ve previously made, as long as it’s yours. You must own full rights to said model.
- Only one submission by participant will be accepted. However, contestants can submit a model on behalf of their team or their studio, as long as they own the rights to said model.

You’ll find detailed rules on this page.

The deadline for all entries is May 28.
