Artists, this is your chance to push past creative limits — and win great prizes — while exploring NVIDIA Omniverse through a new design contest.
Called “Create with Marbles,” the contest is set in Omniverse, the groundbreaking platform for virtual collaboration, creation and simulation, and based on the Marbles RTX demo that first previewed at GTC last year and showcases how complex physics can be simulated in a real-time, ray-traced world.
In the design challenge, artists can experience how Omniverse is transforming the future of real-time graphics. The best designed sets will win fantastic prizes: the top three entries will receive an NVIDIA RTX A6000, GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, respectively.
Creators from all over the world are invited to experiment with Omniverse and take the first step by staging a scene with all the objects in the original Marbles demo. No modeling or animation is required — challenge participants will have access to over 100 Marbles assets, which they can use to easily assemble their own scene.
The “Create with Marbles” contest is the perfect opportunity for creators to dive into Omniverse and familiarize themselves with the platform. Install Omniverse Create to access any of the available Marbles assets. Leverage the tools built into Omniverse Create, or pick your favorite content creation application that’s available on Omniverse Connector. Then render photorealistic graphics using RTX Renderer, and submit your final scene to showcase your work.
Explore Omniverse and use existing assets to unleash your artistic creativity through scene composition, camera settings and lighting.
Entries will be judged on various criteria, including the use of Omniverse Create and Marbles assets, the quality of the final render and overall originality.
Guest judges include Rachel Rose, the research and development supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic; Yangtian Li, senior concept artist at Singularity 6; and Lynn Yang, freelance concept artist and matte painter.
Deadline for submissions is April 2, 2021. The winners of the contest will be announced on the contest winners page in mid-April.
