Witch Doctor by Pawan Warnasooriya

This year, the CGTrader Digital Art Competition set out on an ambitious goal: to bring together 2D and 3D digital art. As the September 30 deadline draws ever nearer, there’s less than a week left for artists to jump in and submit their works!


More than 3,200 artworks are vying for prizes worth more than $60,000 in the CGTrader Digital Art Competition. Three winners will be announced for each of the six categories on October 30. The Character Illustration category is the most popular one, with close to half of all submissions in the competition. In addition, the category winners, two works of art that gather the most likes in the competition gallery will win the Public Award, therefore everyone is encouraged to vote for their favorite artists and discover thousands of other great creators.

There is still time for artists to enter the competition. If you want to submit your 2D or 3D work of art, simply go to the competition page and enter your best works today!
