The Next Top Metaverse Build competition, a first of its kind buildathon developed between RENOVI, GDA Capital, Decentraland, and the Metaverse Group, has announced 3D design software company Threedium as its latest sponsor.

To take metaverse-optimized architecture and design to the next level, RENOVI, a pioneering marketplace for infrastructure-related metaverse assets has already brought on GDA Capital, a leading digital asset firm; Decentraland, one of the earliest metaverse platforms; Threedium, a bleeding-edge 3D engine that creates immersive product experiences in 3D and AR (Augmented Reality); and the Metaverse Group, a real estate and metaverse investment company, to launch the Next Top Metaverse Build.

The Next Top Metaverse Build allows architects, 3D designers, and developers to turn architectural and design concepts to life and have their work reviewed by some of the digital asset industries preeminent experts.

The buildathon is offering several prizes and incentives, which include up to 50,000 in RENOVI Tokens, software licenses to the Adobe suite, and a parcel of land donated by Decentraland.

Andy Charalambous, the Co-Founder of RENOVI, said that the goal of the competition was to "invite talented architecture students, 3D designers, game developers, and metaverse enthusiasts to participate in this unique Metaverse Build competition...and give back and empower both upcoming and established designers."

"We are thrilled to have premier partners such as Decentraland, the Metaverse Group and now Threedium join us in this pursuit. We are looking forward to seeing what our competitors come up with," he said.

An impressive disruptor in their own right, Threedium was recently invited to LVMH's Les Maison des Startup's accelerator. Through this experience Threedium will bring invaluable perspective to explain how traditional companies are looking at the metaverse, 3D design, and how these trends will be used to bring stronger experiences to customers. Threedium will be one of the judges for the event, carefully reviewing the contestants submissions and offering feedback, guidance, and mentorship to the applicants.

Mike Charalambous, the CEO of Threedium, had the following to say about the competition: "We are thrilled to partner with GDA Capital, RENOVI, Decentraland, and the Metaverse Group as judges and as an official sponsor of the Next Top Metaverse Build. The AR/VR and 3D design capabilities of Threedium are perfectly suited for the next iteration of metaverse expansion, and it will be exciting to see what the event's participants will come up with to advance immersive design, 3D rendering, and virtual NFT assets built for the metaverse."

As the premier tech partner powering the competition, all assets will be hosted on RENOVI's marketplace, which is quickly cementing itself as the preferred destination for large-file NFTs thanks to the platform's unique scaling solution powered by ImmutableX.

The Next Top Metaverse Build competition will open for entries on January 30. Entries will be accepted through March 31. Additional rules and competition details can be found here.
