Perhaps I'm just dense and I've missed something very obvious, but when exactly is the deadline? I haven't seen a hard date anywhere (and I throught I read all the pages on the challenge page fairly carefully), just people saying something about it lasting three months and stuff.

One question about the 3d scene category.
How much the animation counts?Is it the same as the turntable in Journey...
I see no difference between an entry in the 3d scene category and a 3d image in the illustration category just that the former must have the animation.

I think that 3d scene category needs some more comment.

Now I understand that we create a 3d scene from which we create an illustration as previously in 3d category (with all postproduction allowed) and on the basis of the same
scene we create a short animation also with some postproduction. Animation may differ
a bit from the illustration.

Is this interpretation correct?

I believe that retouching/post production work is not only allowed but encouraged in all three categories.

What if you entered the Scene/Model category but meant to enter Illustration. I realize now what the difference is. Is there anyway to switch my entry over?

arturro: Some processing should be OK, but it's really a showcase of the model, not your photoshop-post-processing skills

Pyke: Everything has to be original

DanielWalsh: I don't see why not.

Velarion: In the 'Illustration' category, certainly!

Nomad: No. Although you may enter multiple categories, the entries must be conceptually different.

cgoz: In the Illustration category, absolutely. Promoting a mixed 2D/3D workflow is one of the reasons we made the Illustration category what it is.

bombeu: The judging will be done on the animation (ie, turntable, rock, or flythrough) submitted. The emphasis in the 3D Scene category is on the model work, not the picture as a whole.

M31: Except in the 3D Scene category, yes. We want to see how well you can create a 3D representation of something, post-processing changes that.

CodeNothing: No. You must make something explicitly for the category you're entering it for.

Composing own music for trailer is a bit tough requirement in my opinion - I mean many trailers out there are using music from Movies like "LotR" or "theRock" not mentioning about some band songs. If is a question of copyrights - wouldn't be enough if we write them at the end of the trailer?

Seriously - making our own music gonna suffer in way lower trailer perception impact... but that just my opinion...

Wow. This is really a broad topic, and it seems like if you really want to do good, you'd probably have to get the book and do your own research there. It's a really dedicated project...if only they would make it more specific like, "oh, draw a scenery from chapter 5", or, "do the main character and his lads in a gigantic environment."

Mibus: With regards to the 3D scene category, is the animation strictly limited to 4-8 seconds or are longer shots allowed? 8 seconds is a bit of a squeeze for what I have in mind.

We don't require that you use music however, if you don't think the trailer would benefit from the music you can add leave it out. Or, alternatively see if you can find a team mate who actually composes music.

You are welcome to make it longer, however remember that the animation component here is more to show off your models than animation, and would typically only be a camera move of some description.
