RenderMan "Rustic Cabin" Art Challenge

RenderMan's Fourth Art Challenge is Here!

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

Judges: Jeremy Birn, Masha Ellsworth, Mark Flanagan, Chia-Chi Hu, Markus Kranzler, Leif Pedersen, Dylan Sisson, Yaa-Lirng Tu

In this “Rustic Cabin” Art Challenge, you’ll get to work with a fantastic scene from Pixar's Undergraduate Program, or PUPs for short, 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.


We are very excited to have our friends at LollipopShaders, Pluralsight, Quixel, Ranch Computing, and Substance co-sponsor this community event, adding a wonderful list of prizes.


A set of industry judges will determine the winners, giving you a unique opportunity to interact and receive feedback from Pixar and ILM professionals. 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 is Wednesday May 22nd, 2019 - Midnight PST (Pacific Standard Time - USA).

Winners will be announced on June 12th, 2019
