Star Search Art Challenge Suspended

July 28th, 2013 by David Heller

We have suspended this Challenge and hope to re-initiate it once the following is resolved:

We received 5 entrants.  But, NONE of the people  who entered followed any of the Challenge’s rules or guidelines.  They ALL simply pushed over one work of their existing art from the site, and none of it has anything to do with this Challenge.  It’s as if no one actually read the Challenge document.

We launched this Challenge as a serious way to have CG artists enter serious and well documented work and we spent months putting together the SCG Evaluation Board, made up of high-level industry professionals to judge the work so the entrants could be evaluated and recognized in the film/animation industry.    We spent time and good will arranging for some extremely nice prizes (Cinema 4D Pro, Digital Tutors, and Keyshot).

We also contacted many PR people from the studios and arranged to send them the best works targeted at their studio.  These actions would have given participants a good chance of being seen in the industry and could very well have helped propel their career.

It seems that we did all this work for nothing and I am disappointed to say the least.

We’re retrenching and rethinking this, and if we can arrive at a Challenge that our audience is willing to take seriously we’ll start again.

Please send me any and all comments and ideas.  We want this to work out and are searching for an answer.


Animation studios are on the lookout for hot and out-of the-box talent and here’s your chance to impress our judges and get noticed by the film industry’s major players.

Even if you don’t win the top prizes, this challenge is being judged by some of the most respected professionals in the industry who will grade all entries and award Hollywood type stars certifying that your work meets studio quality. That’s sure to put stars in your eyes and a feather in your cap. The judges will be looking for a blend of technical skill, creativity and wow factor.

Meet the Judges – All members of the ShareCG CG Evaluation Board.

Prizes include Cinema 4D Pro from MAXON, a one year subscription to Digital Tutors training, and a full Luxion KeyShot render license.  Learn all about this exciting challenge and present your work to the world.

    Hi Dave .. is animation allowed in this star search because I didn’t see a star search check box for animation so I could submit some animations 🙂

    Hi Ivy …. The challenge is an Art challenge. However, you can supplement your art submission with a video, 3D model or other complementary assets. If you do this you can link them together using the site’s Grouping capability. Just watch this short video to learn about Grouping and how to use it:
