RenderMan Art Challenge

RenderMan's First Art Challenge is Here!

Challenge is now closed, thanks for participating and stay tuned for winners and future challenges!

In this “ Everything & the Kitchen Sink ” challenge, you’ll get to work with a scene developed by a Pixar artist , providing you with a production-quality scene to showcase your shading, lighting, and rendering skills for the posibility of winning great prizes!

Everyone is eligible to join the fun, all you have to do is join the RenderMan Community .

We are very excited to have our friends at Pluralsight co-sponsor this community event, adding a wonderful list of prizes and training opportunities. Be sure to check out a special RenderMan 30-Day Trial and start learning today.


A set of Pixar judges will determine the winners, giving you a unique opportunity to interact and receive feedback from Pixar artists. Judging will be based on both artistic and technical merits, so get creative, but don’t forget to dazzle us with your rendering skills!


The deadline for the challenge was May 31st, 2017 - Midnight PST (Pacific Standard Time - USA) Thanks for Participating!
