With all the new tools coming out of Strata to help you integrate your 3D and Adobe workflows, we thought it was time to present a challenge to test those skills.

The challenge theme is to integrate a 3D object into a photo in a way that represents the holidays for you. Whether that means building 3D snowmen for your front lawn, or putting Santa's sleigh at a parking meter in front of Macy's is completely up to you.

Prizes include a Digital Camera, a NAPP membership, training material from Scott Kelby and Dave Cross, and more.
