Pluginz Revs Up 3D Cars CompetitionWin a 17” Intel iMac or Plugins! (June 20, 2006)
In a salute to Disney’s new film Cars, Pluginz.com (www.pluginz.com) is sponsoring a competition challenging artists to design their very own 3D dream machine. The winner of The Pluginz Cars Competition will be awarded a 17” Intel iMac valued at $1299. Second and third place winners will receive vouchers good toward the purchase of plugins on Pluginz.com with a total value of $1000.
Participants are asked to submit a JPEG image of a 3D car or other road-worthy vehicle of their own design and production. Any 3D software may be used to produce the car. Submissions will be judged on the basis of creativity, artistic merit and technical execution. The competition is open to all registered members of the Pluginz.com community. Registration is free.
The competition aims to showcase the creative skills of the global 3D community, according to Pluginz.com president Robert Lott. “We encourage artists to give their imaginations free reign,” Lott said. “It can be an ethanol-powered hot rod that soars through the stratosphere or a plutonium-charged coupe capable of burrowing to the center of the Earth. We want to see cars with personality...sexy, shy or devlish. Whatever it is, it’s got to be fantastic to win the hearts (and votes!) of our judges and members.”
Participants must submit a JPEG (maximum size of1024x768 max) in the contest gallery of pluginz.com by July 31st. Members of the community will rate entries using a 1-5 star system and post comments on the work beginning August 1st. The top entries will be subject to a second round of voting beginning August 15th. Final judging and the selection of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be conducted by Pluginz professionals. Winners will be announced August 31st. Complete rules and details are available at www.pluginz.com
