Our last 2 previous conpetitions have always yielded many wondefull renders,
Usually at leadt 200 wth nearly 400 entries on the last one...
Our current competition is not as successfull for unknown reasons, although we suspect its due to the time of the year (holidays) and the fact that we chose a difficult theme.
Although we have since removed the theme, and anything can be contributed, I think many people did not notice the change and as a result the pace has not picked up yet...
We need to get 200+ entries, in order to give us enough website marketing images to pay for all the prizes we are giving away, which have been the biggest, and most expensive lst of prizes to date... (all prizes together, especially all the GPUs, cost thousands of dollars)It would be extremely helpfull if a few dozen people or so, who hang out on the octanrender forums frequently, but also on other CG relsted forums, help to give us a hand and make some posts over on other 3D CG artist forums, blogs, news sites, etc....
This way, we can remind everyone that there is no mandatory theme anymore and that people still have a chance to start work on an entry as the competition will end at the end of January 2012 (it has been made longer due to the reasons explained above...)
So, if you want to help us, please make a post on any 3D CG artwork related forum, blog, news site, etc... about the competition,
Giving information such as the list of prizes, the theme (2012 end of the work myths) and the fact that the theme is not mandatory, eg anyone can submit any type of image, as long as it adheres to the competition rules (image or animation, minimum resolution, format and place to post it etc...you can find all this in the competition thread's first post)
try to keep it short, concise and simple: List the prizes, non-mandatory theme (and explain people can submit whatever theme or still and/or animation they like, and a big URL link to the forum competition thread here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=8029
