Best of luck, everyone!

Every year I try to give a hint to those participating in the contest about what the judges will be looking for. If you look at the past 10 years of prize winners, it should be fairly obvious.

This is not one of the usual 3D art contests. Judges were selected from outside the 3D art community and thus are less likely to be drawn to the 'usual' 3D popular themes (fantasy, sci-fi, anime). That's not to work that some of the themes haven't won prizes before, but again, the judges are from Audubon. Their interests tend to lean towards birds, nature and conservation.

Is it just me or is there only two images in the contest album? Mine was submitted on the 6th and hasn't shown up yet in the contest.

They manually have to add them from the submission area to the gallery. In past years, the gallery gets updated every 4-7 days and much more frequently as the deadline approaches

.Oh, OK, thank you for your prompt reply. I'm looking forward to the new submissions because the two that are in there now are wonderful. Thank you for all your work on these competitions.

I have some albums where I organize my "uploads".
I have not yet uploaded the image for the "Contest", and I do not know where to upload it...
Thanks for help!

We just heard back from our contact at Filter Forge that they will post this contest on their Facebook page and on Twitter this coming Friday.

Yay!!

So look for that to happen. We'll link to it as well, and share the posting.

Grateful to Filter Forge for their support of this contest. Wonderful.

We also heard back from Smith Micro today that they'll support this contest also.

We'll see them donate software and they'll also post on social media. More details to follow.

Yay to Smith Micro!!!
