Snow Globe Challenge

Graphisoft Community Snow Globe Challenge

December 15, 2021 – January 16, 2022

The Snow Globe Challenge is closed for submissions and voting. You can check out the results here.


Challenge Description


We’re excited to announce the launch of a new Community Challenge! This holiday season we want to celebrate with our Graphisoft Community family, so we came up with a fun activity to bring us all together during the weeks ahead. 

When was the last time you let the child inside take over? Here's your chance! Design your own magical snow globe and share your idea(s) with the Community!

Unleash your creativity and get into the holiday spirit! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • • What does this time of the year mean to you?
  • • How do you picture yourself in 2022?
  • • If you could give a personalized snow globe to your loved ones, what would it look like?
  • • Can you visualize your favorite Christmas movie?
  • • What's your dream vacation scenario?
  • • What if you could enter a snow globe? What would it be like?
  • • Does it snow where you live? How about designing a sunny globe instead?
  • • What’s the soundtrack of your snow globe?

During this holiday Challenge we'd love to see your cool (or hot!) ideas. Just to let you know, not only will the designs with the most votes win prizes, but also entries picked by Graphisoft.

So — let's get started! 


Snow Globe Challenge

Challenge Rules


We've prepared a simple Archicad template with some guidelines to help get you started, but using the template is optional.

Create your design in Archicad, follow the steps in the template, and submit the image. We don’t want to limit the scale of your model but recommend keeping the size and detailing proportional since all the images will be of the same resolution.

If you want to start from your own Archicad template, to achieve the snow globe effect, you can apply the provided PNG filter.

Both Archicad PLN template (INT) and a PNG filter can be downloaded here.

To be eligible for the Snow Globe Challenge, submit a JPEG/PNG with a resolution of 1000x1000 pixels.

Please note that the designers of the winning entries may be asked to provide an Archicad Project File Archive (PLA). If you’re one of them, you’ll be contacted shortly after the Challenge deadline.


How to Enter


Please submit your design in JPEG/PNG here.

Winners will be chosen by Graphisoft and our global Community. Along with the most-liked design, our team will pick the most creative entries. Winners will receive Graphisoft goodies and special Community badges. So, go ahead and push your snow globe’s boundaries!

By the way, don’t forget to come back in the New Year (voting starts on January 1, 2022!) to vote for your favorite design(s) by liking them. Make sure to invite your friends to vote for you (or submit their own design), because one of the voters might win a prize too!


Have fun and good luck!
