Sketchfab Medieval Remix Challenge

Back to overview

We’re restarting our Medieval Remix Challenge – due to communications issues we did not reach the community artists we wanted and as a result, the challenge never took off. 

Last fall we co-hosted the Medieval Fantasy contest with Mozilla, focusing on the creation of low poly assets for a medieval real-time environment. It was one of our most successful contests to date, with 135 final scenes and a whopping 4,000 freely downloadable assets!

For the next two weeks, we’d like to see what YOU can do with the huge library of free models. So here’s your task: create a new scene using only assets from the Medieval Fantasy challenge. There are no restrictions on the type of scene, but you’re not allowed to create any new assets or modify the existing ones.

UPDATE: Winner – Issum, the town on Capital Isle by Olee

TL;DR: Create a new scene using only assets from the Medieval Fantasy contest and tag it with #MedievalRemixChallenge.

A note about the Creative Commons license

As all the contest assets were published under the Creative Commons Attribution license (“CC-BY”) license, you need to re-share your remixed model under the same conditions. This means two things:

Make your scene available under the Creative Commons Attribution license.
Keep a list of all the assets you used for your scene, and credit them using the following format (I added some Markdown to create a nice layout):

This scene includes the following models, which were published under a 
Creative Commons Attribution license:

* [model name 1](model URL) by [artist name 1](artist profile URL)
* [model name 2](model URL) by [artist name 2](artist profile URL)
* etc
