Unreal Challenge: Furious Elegance—winners announced
Tribute by Mat Ciscas
Our latest Unreal Challenge ran from June 8 through July 6, 2023, and asked you to show off your animation skills in Unreal Engine and Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN).
We received many incredible, beautifully inspired, and creative short entries to the Unreal Challenge: Furious Elegance in three categories—Individual Unreal Engine, Individual Unreal Editor for Fortnite, and Student. This challenge also features the Community Recognition Award, where the community votes for their peer favorite.
