Maxon, developer of professional 3D software solutions, has long been a supporter of the Rookie Awards. This year, they will be giving away Cinema 4D Subscriptions to a few lucky winners of the Motion Graphics and 3D Animation categories.
That's not all! One random winner will get their hands on a 12 month Cinema 4D Subscription as part of our 25k Starter Kit Giveaway.

Maxon officially acquired Academy Award-winning ZBrush sculpting and painting software at the start of 2022.
What's exciting, is that the ZBrush team has already joined Maxon, bringing decades of 3D industry expertise.
The move suitably rounds out Maxon’s product line and firmly positions the company as an industry leader for providing superior creative tools to digital artists to the €16 billion 3D Animation Industry.
No interruptions are expected for the ongoing development of ZBrush post-acquisition. Nevertheless, the collaboration with Maxon’s development team, access to its other technologies and the potential integrations therein are expected to bring greater innovation and expanded capabilities to ZBrush and the entire Maxon product line. Additionally, the inclusion of the ZBrush team assures greater marketing, training and support resources.
“We are excited to start working with the Maxon team,” said Ofer Alon, Founder and Visionary of Pixologic. “Our synergies are undeniable - both companies share a great tradition of outstanding products, innovation and a passion to serve the creative community.”
“I’m excited to see how this alliance will influence, evolve and enrich all our product offerings,” stated David McGavran, Maxon CEO. “We have our eyes towards not only transforming creative workflows; we’re aspiring to revolutionize the industry.”
So if you have already been making those brilliant Rookie Awards entries with ZBrush, or are about to pick it up for the first time, no fear, until further notice, ZBrush pricing remains unchanged following the completion of the acquisition.
Customers can continue to purchase ZBrush through their usual sales channels, including the ZBrush online store.
