Create a tutorial for Blender 2.69 and win CG Masters DVDs



CG Masters are hosting another tutorial competition for new Blender 2.69 features. I love this concept, as everyone's a winner :)

How this competition works

The goal is simple, create the best video tutorial you can using Blender 2.69. There's no theme for the tutorials, just think of something you're good at and teach us how to do it! If you're good at special effects, teach us how to make fire. If you're good at animating, teach us how to make a clown juggle. Anything goes! Extra points go to those that show how to use the latest features in 2.69. The final video should be in English and at least 10 minutes long. You can submit multiple entries but only one entry per person can place in the top 3(although all of your entries will still be considered for honorable mentions). Entries must be new content, and must also use Blender 2.69 to ensure the information is current.

The Deadline
All entries must be submitted by the end of November 20, 2013.

In addition to the prizes below, all winners and honorable mentions will have their tutorials published on with full credit and a link to their website.

1st Place - $150 and four CG Masters DVDs of your choice
2nd Place - $100 and two DVDs of your choice
3rd Place - $50 and one DVD of your choice
Honorable Mentions - Tutorial published on

For more details, please see the contest page on Facebook.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


    • The next contest we'll open it up to written tutorials as well. I prefer written tutorials all the way. That might also open it up more to those that aren't native english speakers and hesitant to create a video because of the clarity of their spoken english. Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one still pining for written tutorials. -chris

  1. Hey! Speak for yourself Vert! The one text tutorial I've written so far is thoroughly rambling and confusing :D
    I might have a go at this though. I've been meaning to do a video...

    When I first started using Blender I found it most helpful with the written tutorial of Gus the Gingerbread man to help me with modelling and animating a basic "Cartoon" character as a beginner. I then searched and found youtube for a video tutorial on how to model and animate Gus.
    Therefore I believe the best tutorials are the ones written together with a video tutorial.
