Call for Submission: Worlds Inside Glass Challenge

Hey, 3D artists, big news! The BadNormals team is bringing a brand new 3D render challenge, Worlds Inside Glass! Excited? This is one more opportunity for you to showcase and enhance your 3D skills and abilities. Plus, the top five winners will receive great prizes! Fox Renderfarm, a leading cloud rendering service provider and render farm in the CG industry, is honored to once again collaborate with BadNormals and be one of the sponsors of the challenge.

Theme: Worlds Inside Glass

Deadline: 20th of March 11:59pm GMT


  • Any 3D software is allowed, but make sure everything is yours and made within the month.
  • Submit only one render and also provide a greyscale/wire-frame with your name included in the scene.
  • Resolution: Minimum 1920 x 1080, Maximum 3840 x 2160 (16:9 aspect ratio).

There is a template you must use to create an image render on the theme. Inside the template, you have two main objects - the sphere and the camera. Without altering the size, shape, position, or properties of any of these items, you must make a render with two worlds - one outside the glass sphere and one inside the glass sphere. You can change the transparency of the glass sphere to an extent, but make sure that the glass sphere is visible and the world inside the glass sphere is also visible.

Template for ‘Worlds Inside Glass’

You can download the template and learn more about the competition, including how to submit entries, in BadNormals’ Discord. We look forward to seeing your amazing work!
