some other important stuff


For the 10th edition of the D2 Vienna, we are creating a looping brand ident that will run on the big screen during the D2 Vienna 2023! This is where you come in. We would love for everyone in our community to have a chance to be a part of it. We will be inviting a few selected artists to create their own version, and the rest will be chosen from the entries of this challenge. We look forward to seeing what you come up with, and who knows, you could win a free ticket to the D2 Vienna 2023!


Create a looping animation using the supplied 3d model and timeline. It is very important that it loops as we will create an edit of the select 5 second animations to be played on the screen. Therefore, it needs to smoothly loop between each one.


Surprise us. Make us laugh. Make us cry. Your only limitation is your imagination (and not changing the timing of the animation – it must be perfectly loopable and 5 seconds long like the sample video in the header and provided in the download folder)


Do not forget to join our D2 Community Facebook Group to share your challenge related work with the rest of community prior to the live judging. 

If you have any problems or questions, please email us.

The winner will be chosen by Fabio, Jason, and other invited jurors during a live stream deliberation on August 8, 2023, at 19:00 CEST (UTC+1).
