:: How do I enter?

Please go here (

:: What are the rules on photomanipulation in the 2D challenge?

All 2D entries must be created entirely from scratch.

:: Can you incorporate a scene or environment with the character?

Yes, although it will not affect the way that we judge the entries. The important thing is that you create a character. Anything extra is entirely up to you.

:: Is it possible for you to team up with a buddy for a double entry?

No, single entries only please.

This includes having a friend do the concept design - this is NOT allowed.

:: Can you enter both 2D and 3D sections of the challenge?

Yes, but the two entries have to be totally different (ie not based on the same concept).

:: What are the legal conditions with regards to the rights of ownership of the final images?

This is mentioned on the contest pages, but here again for clarity:

The sponsors of this Challenge may use shortlisted and winning artwork for marketing purposes only in the context of the Machineflesh Challenge, and will clearly credit the artist.

No artwork will be used in any fashion without credit given to the artist.

No artwork will knowingly be sold, in whole or in part, by the sponsors.

It is not any of the sponsorís intention to keep any of the non-winning artwork other than for purposes of deciding a winner and longer than the length of this contest.

The artist will be asked permission for the use of their artwork if outside of the scope of the contest or the above mentioned purpose(s).

The artist is allowed to use the images created for personal promotion. E.g. submission for EXPOSE' and other galleries.

:: Can one incorporate a generic model pre-made or does one have to use solely objects that are made from scratch?

Absolutely NOT. The challenge is a work-in-progress challenge and everything must be made from scratch. Entries found using previously made/commercially sold models or elements will be automatically disqualified. This has always been a rule in our challenges.
Please note that this includes models made by yourself (ie it is not limited to commercially available model packages).

:: Can you enter more than one entry per catagory in the challenge?

No, please limit yourself to a maximum of only one 2D and/or one 3D entry.
