ok, my render is using procedural textures for the displacement maps, but i read just now that:
Q. Are terrain generators allowed?
A. Yes. As long as it is not the prominent feature of the artwork, it is allowed. E.g. backdrop mountain

vistas... you cannot use terrain generators or other parametric software model generators to create the primary subject matters.
would that mean that there is no chance that my image gets validated?
  01 January 2004
Should we expect a confirmation after uploading our image? I uploaded my final image via ftp a couple of days ago and have not received any sort of confirmation.

1. Terrain generator - if it's the backdrop or something not prominent, it's ok. It you used it to create most of the image (50% or more) then no it's not ok.

2. Email confirmation. We're working on it. PLease email to confirm.

FINAL IMAGE SIZE!!! 15150 x 11071?!!

Hello all!

Can someone help me?

3636 X 2657 at 300 dpi is 15150 x 11071 is that right?

I can't render this large?

Need answers quick!

Am I going to have to render each piece and composite all of them together in photoshop?

That's insane!

3636 X 2657 at 300 dpi is 3636 X 2657

3636 X 2657 at 72 dpi is 3636 X 2657

It's the same. The DPI resolution only comes into effect when you want to print.

Ok, ....that sounded insaine!

Confirmations won't be emailed out, what you should do is check:

Log in, and you *should* be presented with a scaled copy of your image.

If you have issues, email me (robert at

I've set the *FTP* (TIF) uploads to stop working 36 hours after the web (JPG) uploads stop.

As for PHP uploads:
Unfortunately, PHP-based uploads are no good for the multi-MB files that the TIFs will probably be. FTP uploads are a bit messy, but are the best way for us.

17.4 hours remaining.
1517 total challengers
91 web-based final images
86 final ZIPs uploaded (of which 7 have been previewed)

Good luck everyone!

there's a new folder on the FTP, called "Finals" - should I put my *.zip into that one too??

I hastily selected my milestones while uploading. A few of the images' milestone labels are incorrect. I changed them in my thread by using the 'edit' option. How can I have those changes reflected in the 'latest entries' version of the thread? If I can't, will that effect judging?
Thanks L
