Polywink Flash Contest: Fairy Tale Theme

Polywink Flash Contest: Fairy Tale Theme

Win €2500 worth of prizes. Deadline for entries is May 28, 2019.

PARIS, FRANCE — May 13, 2019 — POLYWINK announces its very first “Flash Contest” on a bewitching theme to prove that, thanks to its technology based on machine learning, Polywink is able to make any 3D model ready for animation in a few hours.

If you’re a 3D professional and you wish to be a part of Polywink’s journey, this might be your lucky day: entrants must only submit a still render of a 3D head, while winners of this contest will get access to different Polywink services, free of charge. The Polywink team will generate complete sets of blendshapes for the submitted model, turning a static character into an animation-ready or game-ready asset overnight!


  • 1st place: Facial Rig on Demand (236 blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
  • 2nd place: Blendshapes on Demand (157 blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
  • 3rd place: Animation For iPhone X (52 ARKit blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
  • Honorable Mentions: $150 Polywink voucher

This challenge is called a “Flash Contest” due to the short amount of time contestants have to submit their entry to the jury. But it is not required to create a model for the sole purpose of this contest: anyone can submit models they have created for other purposes in the past, as long as they own full rights to said model. Deadline for entries is May 28, 2019.

    Hey Michael,
    Don't worry about that!
    As the rules say, to enter the contest an entrant must only submit a render - no models should be sent.
    Afterwards, winners send the models over for rigging and promotional images are produced, but always with credit to the artist and no use outside of that scope.
    Polywink works with studios from all over the world on a daily basis, though you will see none of that on the website as we have a strict respect for confidentiality and copyrighting aspects. If AAA studios can trust us, so can you :)
