A Very Special LightWave Holiday Challenge

The 2015 LightWave Holiday Challenge is officially underway

Posted: Thu 17 Dec 2015

Update 5 April 2016: The Annual LightWave Holiday Challenge has drawn to a close! Congratulations to Milivoj Popovic, who wins this challenge with this amazing image! He will receive LightWave 2015, ChronoSculpt and NevronMotion software. Thanks to everyone for participating. Stay tuned for the next contest!

Many of you have asked us for a little more time to participate to our LightWave Holiday Challenge. We have extended the deadline to March 31st, so time to turn on your creativity!

We are looking for one outstanding, original image or animation created with LightWave 3D. This year we are looking for something special from our amazing LightWave community of artists and designers: the challenge topic will be to represent how your favorite movie characters (sci-fi, horror... any kind!) spend their Christmas, with one special twist: the LightWave logo must be incorporated into the design. Show us and the world your unique creativity!

Here is your chance to showcase your work and win a suite of products from the LightWave 3D Group! Time to turn on your creativity!
