Hi all, the Alienware Challenge will close at the end of 20 January and start judging immediately after. Please begin uploading your final entries. Read the instructions below very carefully!
1. Final entries
You need to upload the final image as a high resolution TIF file that has been zipped up. Instructions for uploading the file are found at:
You also need to enter the final image as a web resolution JPEG using the entries system here:
So just to clarify, two versions of the final image need to be uploaded:
- Print resolution image as a TIF, zip this file (FTP)
- Web resolution image (standard entries)
Your entry will only be classified “complete” and go through to judging if you have uploaded all the required milestones. If you have not uploaded your milestones, do it immediately.
Judging will begin after the entries have been checked.
- Only the final image will be judged
- Only entries that have the full print resolution entry, and all the milestones will be judged
There will be three components to judging:
A. Juried Voting - The jury will consist of artists (not involved in the challenge) and some Alienware staff, who will only view the artworks and vote based on artistic merit.
B. CGTalk Voting - all complete entries will be placed online and we will invite the community to vote.
C. Community Interaction - a small amount of the final result will come from examining the artist’s interaction with the community during the challenge. Artists who have posted their Work in Progress in a timely manner and shared their techniques and ideas with the community will score well here.
All completed entries will be on display permanently at http://www.cgnetworks.com/alienware/ after the challenge has concluded. Only complete entries will be retained.
So fire up those renderers and get your work in!
