The 2014 Challenge is a Wrap and the winners are revealed!

Posted: Tue 06 Jan 2015

The 2014 LightWave Holiday Challenge has drawn to a close, and this year there was a tie between two images -- one leaning toward a more futuristic take on the holidays and the other a more traditional approach. We are pleased to announce that both Lorenzo Zitta and Nads Ads are winners in this year's challenge and both will receive LightWave 2015, ChronoSculpt and NevronMotion software. Congratulations and Happy 2015!
