Your talent, your future

The 3rd edition of  “SUMMA3D” is officially open 

SUMMA3D is a 3D animation contest, currently in its 3rd edition, designed for CGI or VFX students, emerging and qualified professionals, as well as those who deeply love animated features or the CGI & VFX field, and are willing to show their work and designs. By coming together we will be able to support new talent, new projects, and develop a united front that boosts the 3D animation sector.

We want this to be a long-lasting contest, and to see it become a benchmark for future generations in the world of animation.


Our goals are:


  • Help production companies find qualified professionals
  • Reward and promote new talent in all areas of the production spectrum
  • Motivate this new talent to introduce their projects and ideas
  • Promote new material that is ready to be produced
  • Show our commitment to culture and business challenges
  • Boost economic development in the sector: locally, nationally, and as the contest grows, internationally
