2017 KeyShot Render Contest Winners

by KeyShot | Oct 30, 2017

With a contest focused solely on the new materials in KeyShot 7, we were not sure what to expect. Once again, you amazed. A big thank you to everyone who took part in the contest!

The entries to the 2017 KeyShot Render Contest captured the most diverse range of subject matter in some of the most creative and detailed visuals we've seen. Since we asked you to feature KeyShot 7 materials, many of you went all out to capture the model detail and material characteristics. All of this together made it extra difficult to choose only a select few! We had over 100 entries for the contest, including automotive shots, product visuals, still lifes, environments, interiors, and abstract art, along with some incredible animations.

After careful consideration and much deliberation, we present to you the Grand Prize, First Place and Honorable Mention winners of the 2017 KeyShot Rendering Contest!
