Ok CG enthusiasts, you should all know the drill. You have about a month to create a masterpiece and compete for an awesome list of prizes.

All the rules and prizes can be found on CGTrader :

CGTrader has reached 200,000 registered users

To celebrate their achievement, they have created a fun infographic highlighting some of the awesome things that have happened this year. One of the best things they have done in my opinion is hosting 30 design contests. These contests are a great way to show your skills and compete for some great prizes.
