There will be no exceptions for late entries outside of hardware or software failure on our end. All deadlines are based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) and will conclude at midnight (GMT without location modifiers) of the dates given.
We will be trying out something a little different, the community will vote and a set number of contestants will advance to the finals based on the outcome of the community voting. The judges will review the entries that did not make it to the finals and select any they feel are deserving of consideration. The Judges will then judge the finalist for the winning positions and select the winners.
The Judges will review the entries based on the Assignment broken down by 1/3 design, 1/3 implementation of design (modeling, texturing, lighting and composition), 1/3 aesthetic/artistic impact of image and award their selection for Grand Prize, Runner Up and Honorable Mention in as timely a fashion as possible. In the event that any of the judges must resign their position, we reserve the right to substitute with an appropriate replacement. The panel’s decisions are final.
