VoxEdit Contests “Shorts”

We are bringing you the very first of many VoxEdit Shorts Contests! Create usable assets over a 6 day period.

Download VoxEdit Here to get started.

Theme : Design horror and dungeon related assets. These need to be highly usable assets, that don’t require animations. (You are free to animate them if you wish.)
Dive into your macabre side and create assets that would fit right into any horror or dungeon environment. Although animations are great make sure they are usable assets with good collisions.

Why should you participate in VoxEdit Contests?

  • Exciting prizes: Win SAND prizes, the ability to mint and sell your assets, NFT prizes and other prizes from IPs (minting and selling is only on selected contests so make sure you read to see if those contests are eligible)
  • Exposure: VoxEdit Contests are a brilliant way for you to develop and show off your asset creating skills. Where would games be if not for all the fantastic assets inside of them. Take part and we’ll showcase your work.
  • Skill Enhancement: Refine your Voxel art skills. Explore new ideas and methods and create outside of your usual comfort zone with interesting themes.
  • Community Spirit: Take part in a fun and vibrant community of fellow creators and artists, where you can share your progress, exchange ideas, collab with others and learn tips and tricks.

✅How To Submit Your Entry

⚠️Important Entry Guidelines

  • Low quality entries or spammed entries with no effort put into their creation will be disqualified at The Sandbox’s discretion. The same goes for attempting to claim other people’s creations as your own — we’ll know.
  • Entries containing elements of any kind of discriminative or overly sexualised nature will be disqualified from the contest. Keep it family friendly.
  • Your submission must be original, made entirely by you. You cannot make an ASSET of a character that belongs to someone else (ie, Marvel, Disney, Sega etc).
  • If a contest is in partnership with an external brand, you are allowed to use their logo but cannot upload your asset on the marketplace.
  • Your entry must be made in The Sandbox’s free VoxEdit software (click here), available on Windows and Mac.
  • Make sure you have read and understood the VoxEdit Contest Guidelines.
  • Assets should not exceed more than 5000 faces and not exceed a max of 175 nodes.
  • The maximum size of an asset is 512 voxels tall (16 meters). Floor print should not exceed 512 x 512 x 512.
  • You can submit more than one entry.
  • Voting will be conducted internally by The Sandbox team.
  • By participating you agree Sandbox can use your entry artwork for promotional purposes.

💯Judging Criteria

Your asset will be judged based on the criteria below. Each criterion follows a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being “very poor” and 5 being “very good”.

  • Creativity (How creative was the asset based on the theme?)
  • Usability (Versatility, different uses/scale/good collider interactions) worth double points
  • Optimisation (does the asset look optimised in The Sandbox Game? Low face and node count is more optimised)
  • Aesthetics (Geometry, shape / Proportion / Colour Palette / Texture / Level of detail).
