The fun begins MARCH 1, 2021

Time to get ready! Just like the HOULY challenge in 2020, MARDINI will give the community the chance to compete for cool prizes by creating a new image or animation every day during the month of March 2021. 

Each week has a theme which you can see in the graphic below and each day has a prompt which will be revealed on Feb 28th along with information about prizes and the rules to ensure fair play. 

You can enter for a few of the days and try to win daily prizes or enter more often to gain points for even bigger prizes. You can also win if you create one beautiful piece or submit everyday to win an Iron Heart award.

On March 1, a MARDINI Daily challenge forum will be made available and a thread for each of the topics will appear. Create your artwork using Houdini products, including Indie and Apprentice, and render using Karma, Mantra or third party renderers working from within the Houdini environment. Any compositing work should be done using COPS. You will submit your work to these forums in order for your artwork to be considered.

If you would like to get an idea of how this works, check out the HOULY rules and winners to see the amazing work produced by the community in our last challenge. Let's make MARDINI even bigger!
