Sketchfab & Mozilla Medieval Fantasy Contest


You can win a $3000 VR setup in our latest contest at Sketchfab: Medieval Fantasy. I had the great pleasure of working with the crew at Mozilla to set this up and hope you'll enjoy it!

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there was a tiny kingdom hidden away in the mountains. And while its people were happy and led good lives, in the back of their minds there was always the worry about what might be at the other side of the mountains…

Welcome to our new community contest! We’ll be going back to medieval times to explore castles, medieval towns, knights, and perhaps… dragons? Anything is possible in this Medieval Fantasy!

This is a contest with a twist: we’ve teamed up with the amazing people of Mozilla, who are working hard on their A-Frame WebVR platform – a web framework for building interactive virtual reality experiences.

We’re combining the power of our two communities to create amazing WebVR scenes. In this contest, you, the Sketchfab community will create gorgeous real-time assets. The Mozilla A-Frame community can then use them in their projects and showcases.

Curious about the first prize?

Our first prize includes everything you need to get started with VR: an MSI GE63VR Raider-001 VR-Ready laptop, and an Oculus Rift VR Headset with 2 Touch controllers and 2 Sensors. With an i7-7700HQ processor, a GTX 1070 video card and 32GB of RAM this beast will also be an excellent workstation for all your 3D modeling and rendering! You’ll also receive a super cute Firefox plush toy, and your choice of a Sketchfab or Mozilla hoodie + T-shirt.

Finally, we’ll add 12 months of Sketchfab PRO to your account!
