RenderMan's Sixth Art Challenge Is Here

Pixar challenges you to put your creative and technical talents to the test, and join its new RenderMan Challenge with a brand-new scene featuring everyone’s favorite form of floating transportation... boats!

In the “Shipshape” Art Challenge, work with a fantastic scene from Pixar's Undergraduate Program and SpeedTree, providing you with production-quality assets to showcase your shading, lighting, rendering, and compositing skills for the possibility of winning amazing prizes!

Anyone can join the fun, all you have to do is join the RenderMan Community.

FXPhd, LollipopShaders, Quixel, Ranch Computing, SpeedTree, and Substance are co-sponsoring this community event.

A set of industry judges will determine the winners, giving you a unique opportunity to interact and receive feedback from Pixar professionals. Judges includes Pixar’s Jeremy Birn, Masha Ellsworth, Chia-Chi Hu, Markus Kranzler, Leif Pedersen, and Dylan Sisson. Judging will be based on both artistic and technical merits, but don't forget to tell a good story!

The deadline for the challenge is Tuesday, June 23, 2020 - midnight PST (Pacific Standard Time).

Winners will be announced on Monday July 6, 2020.
