Title: Last week! Finish your projects on time!
Post by: FrankB on April 08, 2013, 03:41:13 pm
Hey guys,

it's simply amazing to see how far you have pushed the envelope this time! Truly beautiful and stunning images!

Now, there is now a bit less than 1 week to go before the deadline for submission kicks in!

Please make sure you finish what you started and that you send your final result to the specified email address. It would be a shame if any of the images in this contest would not be submitted, so please finish them all up on time.

Deadline is this week sunday, April 14th, shortly before midnight Central European Time.

What happens then is that a jury will go through the voting process. We will take at least a week for every jury member to cast their votes and for us to publish the winners.

I hope you agree with me that this has been (and still is) a very fun contest with lots of lessons learned. Once again I have the feeling that this contest has made us all more experienced artists and Terragen 2 users.

Best regards
Frank

I for one have found this a great way of creating an image. Having your peers comment on your work as you do it really makes you think and push the boundaries. We should do it more often.

I agree with Mick and Frank.. this has been an excellent learning curve for me... amazing what you can do when you restrict your options a little...pushing those limits has been an enjoyable way to work for me too, I think we should do this more often for sure!

Anyhow... I have a good bit of finishing off  to do over the next few days, so...
I better get back!
:)
cheers
Jason

Quoteshould do this more often for sure
.... agreed as well, but will there be such great prizes every time?

I'd also like to have more. I personally don't think prizes would be necessary, at least for me. With friendly competition, we make ourselves better. We could make a "winners" gallery or something where the images are displayed. That way people could get some recognition for their work.

Agreed!

Prizes give a seriousness to things. Money talks. It doesn't say much, but what it says always sounds very profound.

Oh, I did not know that these old contest results are still up!!!
Immediately found one of my all time favourite TG Classic renders from Peter Kleiner http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/terracon/terracon_archives/archives/26-buildings/12.html

It's such a loss that he isn't active anymore. I guess we lost him over the complexity of TG2 and the total lack of documentation in the first year if TG2  :(

No greater pleasure than the interchange with your peers during these Terragen 2 challenges. Learning and meeting friends are the rewards.

Frank,

On your site, the instruction for send in our entry indicates to send as follows:

Please send your finished work through email to: nwdacontest at hotmail.com . This is not an email address and, I mailed my entry to you directly; is this OK?

Bob

So what is the official email address for submitting your final image? I sent questions to nwdacontest@hotmail.com but did not get a reply.

Yes, you have constructed the email address correctly. We were hoping that this was pretty obvious, and have written the address in that "funny" way to avoid getting scraped by some web spider, and end up in some spam target list.

The email address is just for submitting the final work. It's better to ask questions here on the forum, or over PM here on the forums.

Martin is managing the email account, perhaps he can look at your questions and elaborate.

Thanks
Frank

Hi Paul,

I have sent you two e-mails (25th and 28th of March) in the past weeks, one of them after you've tryed to reach "me" (nwdacontest e-mail) through Frank.
As I didn't hear anything after that 2nd e-mail I took it for granted you recieved them.
Perhaps my e-mails didn't make it to you, somehow, or very likely they are being stuck in your junk folder or spam filter.

Kind regards,
Martin

OK, Thanks.  No I did not receive them but I've had this problem before with this e-mail account. It's funny since this is a paid account and my free gmail account always works. Well it's a moot point anyway since it's too late to change my image. I'll submit what I have tomorrow.
Thanks

It's probably most comfortable to choose a decent file size, and the tifs from TG2 seem a bit large for web use. So send in tif if you must, but you'd do us and the viewer a favour if you use a very low compression jpg.

Thanks
Frank

No problem, tiffs are just raw output, so was not sure... Jpeg is not an issue.
Cheers
