Blender World Cup 2008 kicks off!


Blender World Cup 2008Just like the earth spins around the sun, the Blender World Cup comes around once each year. And just like Global Warming, each year the competition is fiercer than ever.

This year the topic is wide open, and the freedom belongs to you the artists.... There is just one catch.

The Competition has begun!

For detailed information and the competition rules please check out the official web page at

There is a good stack of prizes up for grabs from our fantastic sponsors, with more to come, so stay tuned over the coming days for the complete list of what's up for grabs.

I look forward to seeing everyone there.

  1. Sorry, but I don't get the "right in the middle" idea. I think their briefing needs revision to be clearer.

  2. Show me actual proof of "global warming" and I'll believe you, but the problem is that proof doesn't exist.

    Anyway, This is pretty sweet. Glad to know about it! :)

  3. Never knew about the beginnen of the BWC so late! I have to win again one of those fantastic cups. One problem, I hardly can use the computer....

    Good luck everybody!

  4. @verb, think action shot, think perspective (someone close to the action, not someone far away...), but as Tony has said, its open to interpretation.

    @Me, not trying to sell global warming, trying to sell a competition with a provocative headline.

    @BackiZ, this is the beginning of the BWC. no warnings this year, just straight into it. Good Luck, I know you are going for the full set ;)

  5. omg! Jonathan Williamson is in?
    i'm out then :P

    @Alltaken, i like the way you wrote the article.. thanks for the news. you could work in a magazine or something ;)
