Wild West: Award Winners and Honourable Mentions

ArtStation’s fifth Community Challenge, Wild West, launched in April 2018 with more industry-based challenge hosts, and a record number of entrants for an ArtStation Challenge! Like all our community challenges, the submission process was entirely open, and 4,500+ artists registered for the challenge with some artists putting in hundreds of hours into their submissions, and more artists than ever giving their feedback and encouragement to their fellow entrants.

An all-star judging panel took on the difficult task to sort through the very strong entries in all categories. Huge thanks to:  Raf Grassetti (Santa Monica Studio), Peet Cooper (Gamers for Good), Jeff Simpson (Ubisoft), Frankie DeRosa (Blur) and our amazing challenge hosts Pablo Carpio (Riot Games), Suzanne Helmigh (Freelance), Randall Mackey (Freelance), Kait Kybar (Goodbye Kansas Studios), Satoshi Arakawa (Amazon Games), Gavin Goulden (Insomniac Games), Mathew O’Halloran (Ubisoft Massive), Karen Stanley (Ubisoft Massive), Hasan Bajramovic (Blur) and Javier Perez (Intrepid Studios).

The challenge winners each receive a virtual ArtStation Challenge trophy, designed with meticulous attention to detail by industrial designer Ivan Šantić (check out the process of designing the Awards). 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners also receive a free 12-month ArtStation Pro subscription.

We’re very pleased to present to you the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each of the categories along with the Honourable Mentions. A record 64 amazing artists received awards in the Wild West challenge!
