2015 Halloween Contest

As the Summer season nears its end and the cool breezes of fall start to creep in - it can mean only one thing...Renderosity's annual Halloween Creative Contest is soon to begin! It's time to put on your artistic thinking caps and begin thinking of your entry that will become the envy of all your peers here at Renderosity.

This year's theme is: Terrifying Monsters

There's no telling what's hiding behind your closet door or what lies in wait beneath your bed. They know our daily routines and are familiar with those we love. These terrifying monsters are all around us and it's up to us to have the strength and courage to realize they're only a figment of our imaginations - or are they?
