Sketchfab Star Wars Contest: Famous Scenes


I just launched a big new contest in the Sketchfab community that ties in to the release of the new Star Wars movie next month. We're giving away some cool prizes and we're having some serious industry professionals on our jury. For the Blender community, I've found Andrew Price (Blender Guru) willing to judge. Enjoy!

Is it The Kiss? Or maybe Han Solo’s Hibernation? Ah wait.. ‘I Am Your Father’. Right?

Whatever it is, with the upcoming premiere of The Force Awakens, we’re getting pretty excited about Star Wars, and we bet you are too! So we’re launching a new challenge: model famous Star Wars scenes and compete for cool prizes, like your own Sphero remote-controlled BB-8 droid.

The grand prize is an Oculus Rift! Star Wars had the first holograms after all, and you can now build your own Princess Leia scene in VR on Sketchfab :)
