Chaos Group and Render Legion invite students to imagine: What’s next?
Want to show us the next-generation of self-driving cars? Or can you envisage what it’s like to live in a supersmart skyscraper? Perhaps you can take us to another planet on an intergalactic spaceship? As long you show us the future via V-Ray or Corona, we’ll be smiling.
This student contest is an exciting opportunity for you to indulge in your creativity, showcase your work — and win amazing prizes!
What should I submit?
We want you to show us what comes next. You can use any software to model your vision, but be sure to render in V-Ray or Corona, on any platform with a legitimately acquired license.
Who can enter?
We welcome submissions by computer graphics students all around the world who are currently enrolled in an accredited program or course. Please read the official rules before submitting your entry.
What do I need to take part?
Hopefully, you’ll already have access to V-Ray or Corona as part of your program or course. If you don’t, you can always take advantage of our free fully-featured trials.
