The IRC channel #blender on irc.freenode.org is having a friendly modelling contest for the holidays!
The theme is “Santa’s Sleigh” and feel free to be creative with it!
All skill levels are encouraged to participate and even if you’re not a regular in #blender feel free to have a go
Entries must be rendered in Blender internal or Cycles. Some post processing with GIMP or Photoshop is allowed but should not make up the main body of work.
Entries will be open until the 21st at 11:59pm GMT/UTC. A winner will be announced on the 23rd.
Entries won’t be judged purely on polish, but on creativity and effort too, everyone has a fair chance!
Prize for the best blend is a Month of BlenderCookie Citizen!
For information on how to access the channel take a look at http://www.blender.org/community/chat/
This is a bit of fun for our wonderful community, happy holidays!
