It is time for another #kb3dcontest: Get your creative engines ready, the new Utopia contest starts right now!

Contests are an excellent way to get involved with our community. Even if you don't win, you will not only get exposure to potential employers, but to other artists with similar goals and passions. At the very least, it will be great motivation to fight that artist's block you've been battling with, so get creating!

To enter, post your artwork using the full or sample Utopia kit in our Facebook group or on Instagram with the hashtag: #kb3dcontest. Select entries will be featured in our newsletter, across our social platforms, and our livestream show every Tuesday at 10am PST at www.KitBash3d.com/live

Contest Winners

With over 175 entries from over 35 countries, this contest was by far the most competitive and compelling to date. The KitBash3d team thanks every single artist who participated in the contest and elevated its caliber. It was certainly no fun, however, having to choose only 10 winners from such a talented and inspiring group. Alas, much like the Powerball jackpot and Mother Nature, we had to eventually determine winners:

1ST PLACE: 

BARTHELEMY AUPETIT

Environment Artist in London

In his piece titled "Sewers" Barthelemy's epic composition evoked the staggering solitude of a lone fisherman living amidst a timeless class struggle.

2ND PLACE: 

WOJTEK KAPUSTA

Freelance Concept Artist & Illustrator in Poland

In his piece "Utopia76" Wojtek engineered the pieces of Utopia to form an imposing spaceship juxtaposed with the fiery cosmic rays of an unforgiving universe.

 3RD PLACE: 

Ronan Le Fur

Freelance Concept Artist & Illustrator in France

Previous Warzone #kb3dcontest winner Ronan aka DOFRESH illustrates with titanic scale the potentially doomed arctic expedition of humans facing an otherworldly adversary.

"It's been real fun, as always, and I'm just floored by the amazing content I've seen the rest of you put out. Truly amazing and like last time, I do not envy the judges and the job they have ahead of them."-- Stig Fostervold, Contestant speaking to the KB3D community

We received a record number of videos this contest, so we created a separate video award to highlight the artists who went above and beyond in their creation. Mike Johnson, Lead Generalist and Matte Painter at Blur Studio, created 2 stunning cinematics as well as a concept piece, earning him this contest's well deserved In-Motion Award. As a result, we have to decided to have a completely separate video category for our next competition!
