NVIDIA Edge Program Winners - July 2017

By Amanda Bott

Last month we announced a brand new initiative, the NVIDIA Edge program, in which we've partnered with NVIDIA to reward teams and individuals that are doing fantastic work in Unreal Engine with premium hardware. Each project will be awarded with either a GTX 1080 Ti or GTX 1080.

This month's recipients are:

Swedish Mechs - Wiktor Öhman

There were many incredible submissions this last month, and it was a challenge to narrow it down to only three winners. We definitely encourage anyone who submitted previously that was not selected as a recipient for this first round to enter again.

Want to get involved?

Share in-engine stills or video of your stunning projects on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and mention both the Unreal Engine and NVIDIA accounts in your social media posts. We'll be on the lookout!

Thank you so much to those of you who have posted your work for all of the community to enjoy as part of this program. You inspire us, and we can't wait to see what you make next!
