Question Size Requirements

Q: Do I have to submit an image in the 2560 x 1600 size?
Yes.
Q: What image file size is best?

There is now no file-size limit for images, however they must remain at the required size.

I find this kind of contradictory. Does this mean that there is no cap on the actually file size (in megabytes) but that they must be submitted in 2560x1600 resolution? So that you could submit a 100mb file @ 2560 x 1600 resolution but not a 4800x3200 @ 5mb? Thanks.

That is correct 'file size' refers to the size in bytes NOT the resolution. There is no official limit, however if your 2560x1600 image is 100MB you have done something wrong in my opinion.

But we can submit in video format? Like submit a short video to demonstrate how our product works? Along with the overall aesthetics? Thanks in advance.

At present the NVArt competitions are for sill images only and judging is based on artistic merit of the image...

although there is an additional special category for this competition which will award a prize for the best product visualization.

Mark, thanks for the quick reply. So to my understanding the submit video category is only for the product visualization judging. While you will be expecting still images for the main competition. I feel like this is more of an industrial design competition with a focus on aesthetics. With that in mind, should you be able to specifically tell what a product does just by looking at it? Or will you be expecting more of an industrial design presentation with a focus on aesthetics?

No videos

Hi all,

There will be no video component to this competition at all. This is only a still image competition.

Apologies for the confusion.

The challenge is great but the subject description is too short and is not so clear to me. Just integrating the present technological products in one thin-small product..? A mobile, an i-pad or a combination of them does have all of them. They are GPRS, game, weather analyzer, phone, camera, etc.. and a computer at same time.. also companies are making new designs for these products everyday. So what we should do is making a mobile or i-pad in a smaller way with new design?

Nevermind my question was answered above. So when you say you just want one image you want something like the examples in the useful inspiration? So do you want something with just 2 views of the product? 3? 4? Is text allowed in the image or do we do all our explanation in the description?

Are you just asking us to design a smart phone basically? Because everything in the useful examples is either a smart phone or something I have no clue what they do because there's no descriptions or demonstrations.

I think a good way to tackle this is look at how far we’ve come in the last 10 years. What we have now, make the tablets, phones and notebooks of a decade ago look like something from the olden days already! Imagine how much more advanced and cool these devices will be in 2021!

What will portable technology look like in the next decade? Will we carry them, wear them or plug them into ourselves in some way? How will we interact with them ? How will they interface with other hardware to perform the many functions we will need them to? Will they be retro, organic, metallic?
