Call for proposals!

The Sketchfab community will soon reach two important milestones: 10 million members and over 5 million 3D models. We want to celebrate the creativity, diversity, and productivity of our members by commissioning an official 3D model that marks the occasion.

The selected artist will receive $1000 for their finished model.

Call for Proposals

We are accepting proposals for a 3D model or scene that captures the spirit of Sketchfab and its community members. The proposal submitted should effectively describe the proposed concept and style for the model. Here’s what we’re looking for:

General References (detail, feel)

  • Grand
  • Celebratory
  • Bright
  • Colorful
  • Detailed

The final 3D model or scene must:

  • Be an original work and not include any third-party intellectual property
  • Be suitable for all ages
  • Look great in Sketchfab
    • Great geometry, great materials, great 3D settings
    • Use our 3D Editor features (Refraction, SSR, annotations, etc.)
  • Be well optimized and suitable for AR
    • Under 100k faces total
    • Max 10 materials
  • Be visually different from recent milestone models
  • Ideally include some hidden ‘easter egg’ details for people to discover

Process sharing (optional and encouraged)

In the spirit of Sketchfab’s community, we would like the selected artist to share their work:

  • During the course of creation, via a ‘Work in Progress’ thread in the Sketchfab Forum
  • After the publication of the work, in the form of an Art Spotlight

Hi everyone,

I sent the formualary but how can I be sure you receive my work or be sure that it’s good.
Nobody talk about the challenge. I made a topic but I feel alone :sweat_smile:

Please reply :smiling_face:

It’s not a challenge :slight_smile:

Hello, as long as there is a selection and a price I took a shortcut :yum:

I need to be very clear: this is not a challenge and there’s no prize. This is a selection for a paid model commission.

Hey everyone, we selected our favourite proposal and have started working on the project. We’ll keep the name of the artist under wraps just a little longer, but you’ll hear it soon enough :slight_smile:
