    Realized after submitting we didn't include the WIP Link or Concept photo, oh well. :/

    I don't think it's too serious that you didn't do that, DerbyShire. From the rules' page:

    "What to deliver

    The submission will include:

    -3 beauty shots of the final environment taken from the real time engine of your choice.

    -A construction shot of the throne itself, showing the high poly mesh, low poly mesh with wireframe and texture sheets, as well as a concept drawing or reference sample if applicable."


    It doesn't say it's part of the submission post to give a link to the WIP thread, plus only says to post a concept drawing "if" applicable.

    If it suits you better Jerc, do say so and I'll go edit my post and add those links and pics!

    Lastly, thanks for making this contest and good luck everyone!! Great honor to have worked in a polycount contest.

    Damm, I forgot to attach a shot of the "mesh(es)" :(
    Nooooo, please say that this do not disqualify my entry ....

    I was too tired (instantly fall asleep after submitting at 1:00 this morning) , had only "3 screenshots + textures" in mind. Somehow I was thinking, the mesh-shot will be kind of optional :/

    The Thread is locked and I guess editing won´t do.

    Not that I had any chance of winning some stuff, but I really want to make a valid entry, that will be looked at by the jury.

    Ironically, I posted a link to the WIP Thread - but no mesh

    Were you guys able to get our updated hirez shots for the judges?

    On a side note, I hope everyone had fun. I know we did! :)

    Contact the Algorithmic folks and see if you can update your entry post with the proper images.

    where are the winners being announced?

    Front page of polycount, click on news. Also polycount and allegorithmic twitter and facebook pages have the winner announcements.

    I think I read somewhere that top 20 was going to be featured somewhere. Are those 10 entries still waiting to be announced, or was this never the plan to begin with?

    this... I also wonder, if 11th-20th place will be announced somewhere?

    Also, is there any chance of the judges writing just a single line of text for each winner? Would be nice to know why a specific piece was chosen :)
    In my personal taste, for example, there are 2 pieces that i don't understand made it to top 10, and 2 pieces I definitely thought would be top 10, but didn't make it (not my own, in case someone wonders).
    I would really like to understand the choices, so I can try to incorporate more of that into my future work as well.
    It's something we seem to be a few guys who would value, but I also understand it is extra work for the judges, so I see why this might not be possible. Just wanted to ask if it was considered :)

    Quote:

    "In addition to the prizes, the 20 first entries will be featured and relayed by Allegorithmic on social media and on our newsletter."

    So does that mean Places 11-20 will be featured - or just the first 20 entries?

    11 to 20 will be featured yes. We reached out to the judges to get more details about their choices.

    Yay! Fisherman's Kingdom and Deus Praetorium really deserves to be mentioned, I feel :)
    Looking forward to seeing the top 20 :)

    Don't forget Immortal Tower, Gods Return, Kublai Khan, Stylized Throne Room, Mandate from Heaven, Colosseum Palace, Kingdom Came, Forsaken Jungle Throne (My Own ;) ), plenty of good stuff that should be mentioned.

    Yeah, there are plenty of good ones :) The 2 I mentioned are just the ones I felt should have been top 10, since there are 2 in the top 10 that I strongly disagree with :) So I am glad they now have a chance to be mentioned :)

    Immortal Tower and Deus Praetorium are the ones that I think should be in the top 10 for sure. I hope they will be in top 20 and get some reward! Of course I agree with m4dcow with all of those throne rooms. Over 100 entires are a lot to choose from. Can´t wait the top 20!

    I understand it as meaning that the first 20 people to submit their entries would have their work featured. Is that not correct?

    The entries that ranked 11 to 20 will be featured :) We just have so much stuff on our plate right now, but they will be featured in the coming weeks.

    Thanks for posting these. Is there a way to see the actual order of the places? Also can the entrants names and competition titles be added to the images the same as 1st - 10th on the fb and substance pages so that people know who's art it is please? :)
