IMPORTANT - Final Submission Details


Okay folks its the news you've all been waiting for. We've got the final challenge submission details sorted out for you.

To simplify things for everybody we have decided to use the Challenge Uploader to turn in your final submissions. This will eliminate any problems with the FTP set up.

Help on using the ChallengeUploader can be found at the CGUploader page.

Please make sure you download the Uploader from the link below, not from the help page.When using the Uploader, enter your CGTalk username and password, and then from the Category drop down box, select either Steampunk; Myths and Legends - Image: Final Image or Steampunk; Myths and Legends - Video:Finished Video, depending on which challenge you have entered.

Complete all the fields in the uploader before submitting your file.

Some submission guidelines for you:

Image Guidelines

  • High Quality (95-100%) RGB JPEG, maximum possible resolution (without upsampling).
  • Image dimensions should be print resolution (as large as you can possibly render). Do not send in a low-resolution placeholder and ask us to get back to you, as we won't.
  • A guideline is 2657 pixels wide and/or 3636 high, 300 DPI.
  • DO NOT upsample your images to achieve higher resolution. If you cannot reach the desired full-page resolution, just send in what you have.
  • More information about image size and quality is included in the Challenge Deliverables page

Video Guidelines
  • Must be encoded in FLV format
  • Can be in 4:3 (eg 640x480) or 16:9 (eg 640x360) aspect ratio
  • Submitted via the Challenge Uploader
  • Information about encoding and tools to use is included in the Challenge Deliverables page

If you have submitted your final piece via the Uploader, but at a lower quality, you can upload your final image again at a higher quality.

More information regarding final submissions can be found at the Submit Final Image page

What about those of us using OSX?

Edit: Never mind. I guess I should read more.

Not all OSX users can run the Uploader. This is a problem that we are unable to resolve without completely rebuilding the program, something we are unwilling to do with a competition deadline looming.

If you are having problems using the Uploader, then you will have to borrow a friends computer to perform the final submission.

Stupid question...I can't understand how to use this uploader O_o
I mean, I tried to unzip it, and then?
LOL excuse me for being so dumb ^_^ I have no problems with FTP, but this seems over my understanding
Thank you for help

(edit: I have Vista)

The Deliverables page has this for images:

The final image for the Image category must be in both JPG/PNG (submitted online), and High Quality JPEG formats (submitted by ChallengeUploader, at a print-resolution of no less than 300dpi).

Does this mean the final image must be submitted twice online, JPG and PNG, with size restrictions, since it says "both JPG/PNG", and then the final large format JPEG through the Uploader?

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

So OS X users are out of luck, huh? Maybe next time you can get a programmer who can program.
Old 01 January 2009   #10
You can submit your WIP etc images in JPEG OR PNG format.

The final image we'd prefer in high quality JPEG format.
