The competition

To enter, simply choose from two of the following keywords: Canine or Primate, and Aviator or Sportsperson. Then come up with your character design! It can be digital or traditional, 2D or 3D, and you have 3 months (until 14th February 2021) to submit. Create your 3dtotal account (if you haven't already) and upload to your gallery with the tag #3dtCDC. If you like, upload it to your social media of choice too, with this hashtag, and @ 3dtotal, and we will share (though be sure the entry is still in the 3dtotal gallery)! We'll also share entries that come in, so what are you waiting for? Get scribbling!

There is no limit to the number of entries you can make, so if you have a few ideas, upload them all! We cannot wait to see what the amazing character design community comes up with!

Just check out the prizes on offer below! £500 in 3dtotal shop vouchers to the First Place, £250 for Second Place, and £100 for Third Place. (Free shipping included.)


Create a character in any medium that uses either Canine or Primate, AND Aviator or Sportsperson as inspiration. This must be uploaded to the 3dtotal gallery and tagged with "3dtCDC" (there will be a prompt when uploading). You could also upload to social media with the hashtag #3dtCDC (optional), but the entry MUST be in the 3dtotal gallery to be counted.

Entry will close on Midnight 14 February 2021, to give you all enough time to come up with something amazing, including those using 3D. There will be no bias in judging between 2D and 3D entries, as we will look at each entry on its own merits. There is also no limit on the number of entries that you can make.

Any entries that are tagged that do not meet these guidelines will be removed from the contest.
