Winners of the Spooky Shadows 3D Design Competition

Every month, Makers Empire hosts an in-app 3D design competition giving students around the world the opportunity to test their Design Thinking skills against their peers.

In October, students were challenged to create a spooktacular shadow puppet design using Makers Empire 3D software.

Students from all over the world submitted over 3,000 entries, which we really enjoyed looking at even if it made our judge’s job quite challenging!

Ultimately, there were some standout designs so without further ado, congratulations to the following winners and runners ups!
