Make a Splash in Amsterdam - Win a Trip to the Blender Conference!


After years of travel restrictions, Blender users can finally meet in Amsterdam again at the 2022 Blender Conference and celebrate Blender’s 20th open source birthday together! And this is your chance to attend: together with Sketchfab, we’re launching our biggest challenge yet with prizes that include two all-expenses paid trips to Amsterdam. Join this challenge, and you could be on a flight to Amsterdam in October to meet the biggest names in the Blender community!

The Task

Every Blender user remembers their ‘first Blender’, and that Blender version had a unique splash screen which is etched into their minds. We ask you to reimagine your favourite splash screen and upload it as a real-time scene to Sketchfab.

We’ll be looking for the most imaginative and surprising designs that make great use of Sketchfab’s real-time 3D web viewer.

The Prizes - We’re bringing you to Amsterdam!

TWO Winners will receive ample budget for travel and logding in Amsterdam, Full Conference tickets and more!
