Win an Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite

Send us an original piece of artwork, that hasn't previously won any competitions or awards, to win a copy of Autodesk’s Entertainment Creation Suite

This issue, 3D World and Autodesk are offering you the chance to win a copy of either the 3ds Max or Maya version of Autodesk’s Entertainment Creation Suite, worth $4,995 (£4,600). All you have to do is send us an original piece of work that’s worthy of being showcased at Autodesk’s 3December event in London at the end of the year, where the winner will be announced.

The Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suites give artists and production facilities access to a broad range of creative toolsets. The suites offer a choice of either Maya 2011 or 3ds Max 2011, and both versions include MotionBuilder 2011, the real-time character animation software, as well as Mudbox 2011 for digital sculpting and 3D painting.

We have one copy of either the 3ds Max or Maya version of Autodesk’s Entertainment Creation Suite to give away. To be in with a chance of winning this excellent prize, send us a rendered image created using any of Autodesk’s products. (You don’t have to use only Autodesk software, but a significant proportion of the work should be done with its tools.) There’s no subject or theme, so there are no limits to what you can create, although if you want to win, you should endeavour to keep it clean!
