Dominant birds contest

Guest judge, 3dtotal staff

3dtotal staff will all take part in the final judging with the collective favorites getting whittled down into 1st, 2nd, and 3rd!

Meet the team

The competition

Following on from our successful Joan of Arc contest, we take to the skies (or perhaps not, who knows what evolutionary ideas might form in your minds...?) You can draw, paint, sculpt, or illustrate, in 2D, 3D, or traditionally, to answer the question, What if birds were the dominant species?

Just like the last contest, you have 3 months to come up with something spectacular, which must be posted in the 3dtotal gallery. You will be prompted when uploading to include the tag "dominantbirds," and it will join the latest entries page on the contest page, and under the galleries tab at the top. Don't forget the tag.

Ask yourself the question, What if birds were the dominant species? and create a piece of artwork - this could be a scene, a character, a family, an environment - anything! The team at 3dtotal will be the judges, and we all have various tastes and preferences, so let your imagination run free!

Entry will close on Midnight 17 May 2020, 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.
