Winter contest topic pool

Post Thu Dec 30, 2010 11:14 am

Hi guys. The Winter contest is going to use a different format than planned. Significative progress has been made on the Blender 2.5 exporter, but it is not finished yet. We need a good exporter, working on all platforms, to handle Sintel files.

On the other hand, this year we have financial resources to organise a non-stop program of activities, and we feel the finished works section is languishing kind of lately, which is not nice at all.

So we think it is time to have a contest. The Sintel contest will go into a Spring contest once we are done with this.

For the first time we would like you to choose from the set of topics above, the two ones you'd prefer the contest to be about. The option with more votes will be selected as a topic for the Winter contest.

Thank you for your participation ! :D

I think the first topic is too similar to Abandoned Classics, I encourage people to vote for the other ones!

I think it would be better to extend the voting period for a few days more. As of now the turnout is low (people are still in holiday hangover mode).

C'mon people, spread this news on other sites if you expect more participants than usual! Whoever visits this thread should put this link elsewhere.
