The winners of KitBash3D’s ‘Mission to Minerva’ 3D art challenge

January 20, 2023

What was Mission to Minerva?

In late 2022, KitBash3D challenged 3D artists to use some of their Kits and tutorials to build futuristic settlements in the fictional “Minerva” galaxy. And they stepped up — more than 32,000 Artists, from 174 countries, created work to contribute to the challenge!

A crew of expert judges from Industrial Light and Magic, NASA, and more looked through the thousands of entries, and the challenge winners have been decided on! Prizes were awarded in two categories: Concept Art and In-Motion.

Challenge entry highlights

Before we get to the winners, here are some of the highlights of the thousands of entries in both categories.
