[*] Voting entry must be larger than 1440w


MUST BE? or Must NOT be larger?

If "must be" - how much more "must be" larger?

Hi Jason,

Is there a prize for winning or placing?

Will this be a public vote among users or will Hash Inc. choose the winning image?

Do the images have to be raw renders or can they be touched up in Gimp, Photoshop, or whichever image editor we choose?

Thanks.

The Community will vote on this, I'm not sure what the stance in on Post Edit in other programs so I will wait for a few comments before posting on that.

Nancy I fixed it so the size reads right.

... I already asked in other topic, but here is it again: are we talking about character contest or a splash screen contest ?? The splash screen isn't necessarily a character, right? It can be a castle, car, tree, ship, spaceship.....my vote goes to... Splash screen.

Marcos,
There aren't two different contests so you've got me scratching my head here.
The Mascot and the Splash Screen are one and the same thing. The only difference being that the image that wins the Mascot contest hasn't always been placed on the splash screen/CD for one reason or another (I assume for copyright restrictions, etc.).

As for it not being a character/mascot? Nothing precludes entering non-character entries but you should understand that if entering a castle, car, tree, ship, spaceship it will be judged at least partially by many on how well it fits into the contest theme (i.e. Mascot). I know in the past I didn't vote for some really nice images because they weren't mascots and the objective was to pick a new mascot for the splash screen.

I might have missed something but this seems pretty straightforward to me.
One way this has been attacked before in previous contests is that if you've got a great non-mascot scene consider adding a character into it (or teaming up with someone else in the community to provide that mascot).

Now, if you are suggesting that a new contest needs to be created besides the Mascot/Splash Screen contest... by all means make the suggestion.

I would hope for a longer entry window. At least two months.

I can be anything you want Cars, Boats, Houses, Maybe a tree but it would have to be a really cool tree haha..

I will extend it to the end of march.. But i was late on getting this done(This does not have a lot to do with Hash, Inc. but it's effecting my work. My stress level has been off the charts for some time)
Jason Simonds
Also after this contest is done and a few other things have wrapped I will be looking to making a new contest. It will also have something for the winners. Maybe not as much as the mascot contest. But I will put some time in to trying to get a few a year.

This is GREAT NEWS! Count me in.

Working on it.....

I'm just bumping this so it will show on people's "New Posts" list in case they missed it previously. smile.gif

John Bigboote
Yeah... from here... you have about 1 month! I better get thinking!
Jason Simonds
I have got some entries for this but not as many as i hoped at this time. If you sent in your entry and have not got a reply please resend it.
Xtaz
indeed I would love to participate, but I couldn't this time ... good luck friends.
Unfortunately it is becoming common, many ideas in my head and no time to realize them facepalm.gif
itsjustme
I haven't had any time either. I have a character I've been working on for something else, but I haven't been able to get back to work on him yet.

Good luck to everyone participating!

Deadline isn't until the end of March. And the mascot doesn't have to be a "character" so here ought to be some good entries from what has been seen on the forum over the last year.

Doh! I missed the contest. I hope we have another one soon. We haven't had anything other than mascot in years.

Don't forget Rear Window. It's not really a contest but it's fun to see what everyone has thought up.
Jason Simonds
