Yoda's New Year's competition, it is :mrgreen:

Hi OctaneRender® knights,

UPDATE: Competition is prolongued until 7th February 2011 so people on all platforms can use the new 2.4 release to make submissions

The competition is closed. A big thanks to all who have submitted entries.

After the success of the last competition we decided to renew that great CG experience. To give everybody a chance to participate during the holiday season, we have decided to host an open themed, still image competition.

By participating to this challenge each competitor agrees that his/her submitted images may be used for promotional purposes on the OctaneRender® web site gallery as well as the OctaneRender® facebook group photo gallery, e.g. displayed as featured images.

The competition is being managed by trinity.

Who can participate:

Everybody ; all jedi, sith, ewok, gungan, droid...

Rules:

    . You may produce and publish as many submissions as you want.
    . The submitted rendering must be made exclusively with Octane Render.
    . You can use the current Demo version which is publically available on our site or the beta version for those of you who purchased one.
    . Submitted images must have a minimum resolution of 1024 px wide and 512 px high, but we will prefer images at higher resolutions.
    . You cannot submit images submitted in a previous Octane competition.
    . You must clearly mention if you've used commercial models or if you've included images during the rendering, in case of doubt we may ask for evidence and we may disqualify any participant who cannot bring that evidence.

Postproduction is allowed only:

    . To fix lighting issues and fireflies.
    . To add glare and bloom.
    . To add chromatic aberration.
    . For noise reduction if needed.

You cannot add any other image part in post-production

Note: that if you use excessive noise-reduction and your submission ends up looking blotchy as a result,
this will be taken into account during examination by the jury, and you're image may not be chosen as the winning image.


Practically:

    . Your images should be uploaded in this thread.
    . You can change them until the thread is closed.
    . Your image must be at least 1000 pixels in width.
    . Include in your submission post:
      . Your Name, technical details (polygons, rendertime, etc...) and a short description/inspiration/motivation or idea about your submission.
      . Add your full credits on the image as small text on the bottom.
      . Include a screenshot of you working on the image in Octane Render. (this proves it was rendered in Octane Render)
    . Don't post your WIP here, use the WIP forum instead.
    . Create one single entry and update it with the new images.

A jury composed by 5 persons will vote and select the winners.

Prizes:

Best image

    1st place : One OctaneRender® New Year's competition 1st place jacket* & two GTX460 / GTX560 2GB (depending on availability)
    2nd place : One OctaneRender® New Year's competition 2nd place jacket & one GTX460 / GTX560 2GB (depending on availability)
    3rd place : One OctaneRender® New Year's competition 3rd place jacket & one GTX460 / GTX560 1GB (depending on availability)
    4th place : One OctaneRender® New Year's competition 4th place jacket & 2 free beta licenses.
    5th place : One OctaneRender® New Year's competition 5th place jacket & 1 free beta license.

    Best artistic concept : One GTS450 / GTX550 1GB (depending on availability)
    Best technical concept/achievement : One GTS450 / GTX550 1GB (depending on availability)


* Limited edition OctaneRender® jacket for New Year's competition

Timing:

The challenge will last for 55 days.
The competition starts now, 15th Dec 2010 and will close on the 7th Feb 2011 at 20:00 (8.00pm) GMT+12 hours (NZ Time)
If we don't get enough participants we may decide to cancel the competition and to postpone it to a later date, in such a case, the submitted images may be reused in a future challenge.

Final Note:

Ready are you!? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.

Good luck to everyone, I wish!

Hey Radiant,

Yep please enter, it should keep you busy! As stated above it's an "open themed, still image competition" so there is no theme.. why the small print and 'oops' face?! No small print or secrets here! :lol:

Cool, I'm in!

But what's a 'jacket', my inquiry is. You surely don't mean the thing to wear? OTOH, I hope it is - a leather one, so we can start Octane's Angels motorbike gang. And grow nasty beards. :lol:

Very nice. I have Some myself (but not limited edition new years competition winner ones :( ).

I have had mine for 3-4 months and they are very good.
I will find some pics and post them soon, of these models.
