The CGSociety is proud to present 'EON - World Within Worlds' (CG Challenge XX), 4 October 2006 - 31 January 2007. The EON Challenge was sponsored by Boxx Technologies, ATI, NVIDIA, ART VPS, Softimage, Alias, Autodesk, Maxon, The Gnomon Workshop, Pixologic, E-on Software, Luxology, Corel and Ballistic Publishing.

With 20 CG Challenges behind us, we can proudly boast about their spectacular success. The CGChallenges are the world's largest and most successful series of digital art competitions. Over the past 5 challenges we have given much more narrative and technical guidance.

Each time we give more, the entrants have improved their work yet again. However, we are always looking to enhance the challenges and wanted to make the 20th challenge something special. So we introduced animation and film categories. We also invited in two of the world's leading Science Fiction writers and based the challenge on one of their blockbuster novels - EON, by Greg Bear. This made it the hardest and the highest profile challenge ever.

And now the time has come to announce the winners of CG Challenge XX: EON - Congratulations!
