Winter contest winners announcement
we are thrilled to announce the results of the winter contest. Total of 204 artists entered the contest and a total of 256 voters were deciding who gets the prize.
Thank you all for participating. We are amazed by the quality of the entries in both sections.
Winners of Renders section
Let's move on to the Renders section, which had a Winter Cozy Mood theme.
The order of the winners is:
$1,500 for Mr. Blue, Winter Cozy Mood
We believe the complexity of the scene and its lighting along with the warm colours is what drew your eyes to this image, which is why you chose it for first place.
$1,000 for Piotr Strycharski, Winter Cozy Mood
Really cozy not only because of the Christmas theme, but the tasteful use of multiple 3D models from our library. Congratulations!
$500 for Aditya Singh, Quiet Contemplation
A minimalist interior full of winter light. A beautiful place to relax.
Winners of 3D model section
And now to the larger model section where there was even more to play for!
$4,000 for George Novgorodtsev
With your votes you have expressed your admiration for George's undeniable skills. George has been creating and uploading incredibly complex Sci-Fi models on BlenderKit for a long time.
$1,500 for Michal Stetina
Michal convinced you with his amazing car models, which are popular not only in the competition but also in terms of the number of downloads directly from Blender. We are not surprised that he came in second place!
$500 for Ibotpl
Ibrahim has convinced you with everyday objects that are mastered to perfection. More than a few of these assets were also in the foreground of the competition renders, as they are a great choice for any cozy interior.
Check out the ranking of all the renders and models according to how you voted:
End note: It took us two days to announce the winners, because we had to fix a bug in the way our database evaluates the number of likes. Due to this error, the wrong number of likes were also published on our website for several hours. We apologize for this oversight, we ended up verifying the odds 'manually' in the spreadsheet editor in addition to the optimized calculation on the server.

We are always busy working on our add-on, and we have a new release of our add-on for you! Know that we've rewritten a huge part of the add-on to make it work great for everyone.
We are glad to introduce the Texture Resolutions feature in Blender 2.92. If you have a small GPU memory or want to create much larger scenes, this is the feature you’ve been waiting for.
We created the first of the BlenderKit artists interviews with Julio Sillet, who has uploaded many great materials to our website.
Literally every area you step in Blender requires you to learn a lot of new tools and information, and that's why we implemented several 'shortcuts' for convenience and speed.
Stones, rocks, pieces of wood can be sometimes photoscanned. But plants are still a domain of hard-core modeling. This really takes time, skill and precision, and a lot of observation what "natural" really means.
We are trying to help you, blenderheads, to save your time while achieving best results possible. Wallpaper textures can really boost interior renders, but do you already have those on your hard drive?
As a late Christmas gift, we are releasing our BlenderKit mascot kitten for free. Now, you can make any scene insta-cute! The kitten is poseable and can be animated (by now 2.79 only, because of a hair-import bug in 2.8 beta).
BlenderKit introduces add-on for Blender 2.8. While there are still many changes in Blender happening, which may cause the add-on will work today and not tomorrow, the add-on should be mostly working fine, and we try to keep the new version updated with the latest Blender builds.
We are happy to announce the release of something we've been working on for a long time.
BlenderKit is a new online platform made for Blender users, creators, and developers. We hope to bring a new momentum into the open source world by introducing several innovations we've been working on.
