  10. Is this competition is for everyone or just for few countries like USA and Canada?
    I am located in India, can I be a part of this and how will you know if the project is submitted by a pro or beginners?

  11. Vladimir /

    can we use PS or AE for post effects?

  12. Hi mike670! One submission per person please 🙂

  13. mike670 /


    How many entries are we allowed to put in?

  14. Hi mmmaddela. Abstract object – try to google for some examples. Lets say something like this:

  15. mmmaddela /

    hey, Thank you paloj. However I am still not clear about ‘abstract object’. Can you please explain or give a link on your site which represents Abstract. 🙂 Thank you.

  16. Hi Maryam, Im not quite sure if I understand your concerns. If you started with modeling just few months ago, thats perfect and you can join our competition. Pro is basically someone who gets paid for what they do.

  17. Thats completely your choice. Those themes are broad and your interpretation of them is part of your creativity and thats something what we would like to see! 🙂

  18. You should respect copyrights and resulting artwork needs to be yours and original. As for reference images – of course you can use them.

  19. hi.
    how can u understand who is pro?
    i`ve just started 3d max for about 2 month 🙂
    you said: competition is for beginners or intermediate artists. If you are a pro…. this is not for you
    i want to participate,:(:(:(

  20. mmmaddela /

    Can you please define ‘abstract object’? also when you say a girl robot,should it be looking like a human or any form of robot just in female avatar?

  21. mmmaddela /

    can we take a picture reference available on the internet or the concept needs to be mine and original?

  22. Hi Josh, yes it should. But it’s not an official condition – it depends on you. You want to make the best overall impression. 🙂

  23. Should the model be textured

  24. Hi Robert, render is enough.

  25. Do we submit the model we create or just the render?
