What training would you think contributed to the making of this kind of CGI wonder? Check out the winner's background. It could be relevant.

How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please have in mind that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top-notch works published by artists and studios. If such work does not appear during a given week, this award is not being given to anyone. So please submit your best work to www.blenderartist.org or to the Member's Gallery of this site, or Contact Us to show where your work is available on the internet. It doesn't have to be a Blender render, internal or Cycles. Any other render engine is fine as long as Blender was used as a part of your workflow.

Artist's Comments
About Me: 
I’m Gregory Smith, and I’m a student at university in the UK, studying CGI. My main focus at the moment is in DMP and generalist VFX for film, but for the last few years and in my spare time now I make environments in Blender.

About "The Old Boat:"
The Old Boat is a scene I put together after a fairly long break from environments, and it was just something I dived into without a lot of consideration about where it could end up.
Initially, I wanted to use it as a realism study, and I started by just creating a few elements from a couple of my own photos and laying them out. Later, based on a lot of great feedback,
I started to solidify the composition and get everything working together. I used Substance Painter for the main models and Photoshop for compositing, but otherwise it’s all Blender.
