CGNetworks is proud to present the Machineflesh Challenge (CG Challenge XV), 16 March - 18 June 2004, sponsored by Boxx Technologies, Wacom, NVIDIA, Discreet, The Gnomon Workshop and Ballistic Publishing. 

Combining two popular themes (characters and machines), contestants were tasked to create an image depicting a mechanically altered or enhanced organic lifeform. This fifteenth challenge run by CGNetworks received over 1400 entries in the 3D category and over 700 2D entries, making it almost twice as large as the previously run challenge, and setting the record as the largest online art contest ever run!

Having said that, the voting process was quite a large undertaking, and the time has finally come to announce who will walk away with those incredible prizes! CGNetworks proudly congratulates all winners of the MachineFlesh Challenge!
