Good luck!

Update: selection announcement – Tuesday 23rd 2013

For this 3rd Sketchfast contest, we put together an external jury, made of Sean from Polycount, Joris from Voxelfab, Francesco from the Blender institute, and Mestaty (who made these awesome new backgrounds you can see below). Voting has been pretty hard with the amazing entries you came up with. The two voting criteria were quality of the realisation and originality of the concept. We also picked the most liked model for the community love prize, so here are the winners:

#1 place – $300: Charging Bull by Zafio

#2 place – $150: Yellow Cab by Revel

#3 place – $50: Detective 50s by Arek

Love prize – .Me account: Little Miss Liberty by Game-of-a-player

Thank you all for participating, and stay tuned for the next Sketchfast contest, which should be pretty soon!
