The goal of the models below this line in addition to photo real, is a high gloss look when applicable but most importantly I need to show off the Lights, aka LED's. So please make them obnoxiously bright and visible. I am trying to show off how annoying the LED's are on these electronics. But try to avoid putting a plethora of LED's because the electronics need to be believable.

 

Look around your house. I bet you can find a hand full of electronics with irritating LED's. Now you can express that Irritation by modeling them and getting paid.

Ok Folks

 

Heres the deal. There are 25 different contests here and 50 prizes. I honestly feel that because the community is so small every one has not only a chance to win a prise, they can win multiple prizes. I recommend everyone try to submit on as many models as they can. Knowing how small the community is there could be a situation where not one person submitted for a particular models contest. If by chance only one person submits for a particular model they will win both first and second place prizes.

 

Yes I will be using these submissions for my personal work but they will also be made available to the entire community.

 

I will judge and announce submissions every Sunday and email the winners for their address to send a check that day.

 

If this were a real paying job I could never afford you. I also dont want anything for free. So I thought I would try this. I think it will be fun, we have not had a bunch of easy contests in a while.

Just because I am not sure how many people are entering into this contest, if you are going to submit give a shout on this thread so I can get a feel.

It seems like a contest would, in theory, have people modeling redundant articles for 'chance' to win a fraction of the value of their work... Why not just offer the amount for anyone willing to model it?

 

Anzovin Studios had a modeling contest, to create some models for their Set-up Machine plug-in. The winners got bragging rights + a copy of the ENTIRE Anzovin library of training materials!!! Now THAT was worth entering! [Here is what I did to win the 'squid' category:]

I thought some people might feel that way. I honestly feel there are so many models and so few people on the forum that most people who enter the contest will win multiple cash prizes.

 

I think it works out more in your favor if I do it this way. For example: If I paid some one 15 dollars for a model and it was not what I asked for because the modeler was new to AM, I would not want to pay for it or I might ask them to keep at it costing them more time and effort. In this case it is a contest so any effort no matter how bad or good has a chance to win.

 

I hope I dont get poor quality submissions but lets say some one just made something as simple as a box with a decal on it and no one else submitted for that models contest. Well I would not be able to use the model because it was so poorly made but I would honer the the prize and that modeler would win both first and 2nd place.

 

So like I said I think this works better for you. May the best efforts win!

Are these models for resale, project for you or some sort of collection?

 

Not for resale.

 

For my persanal poject and a friends project.

We got some cash together to try and save time

All models will be donated to the entire hash community.

 

We have little money but I don't want to ask for free help. So I thought this would be fun.

Ahh thats cool.

 

You mentioned you want bright led's etc, how about for model consistency have some basic materials available so that there isn't 20-30 versions red led mat, 50 versions aluminum mats and 50334 versions of black plastic.

If someone wants to post materials on this thread to help speed things up thats ok with me.

I personally like variety. I think having everyone try it differently sparks inovation.

and

Bamboo / 08-11-10 / $12,$4.

 

Can you believe it? If just one modeler had submitted a single spline for both of these contests they would have won a total of $23.00

 

talk about easy money. O well I will just have to do those models myself.

 

These are the next two contests coming up and I have yet to receive submissions for these.

 

3. Generic gym membership id / 8-13-10 / $5, $2

Ken Citron won these contests for both first and 2nd place. No one else entered the contest, easy money.

 

6. Generic sunglasses, / 8-19-10 / $8,$4

 

7. Generic wallet, get creative / 8-21-10 / $10, $5

 

 

 

There are still a bunch more contestes if you look above in the beginning of the thread. Ken has asked to have his winnings donated. These contests could be a good opportunity to test the new V16 beta.

 

As I noted the contests models are all donated to the community. Thanks again Ken for being literally the only Hasher interested in this contest. Not only did you single handedly help me, you are donating your winnings to food for the poor and your models are donated to the community. My hat is off to you.

Update: Please see the updated deadlines at top of the thread. I have made extensions. Both of the Hashers who entered in this contest graciously wanted their winnings to be donated to a charity that gives food to people who need it.

 

I have decided to match the winnings and also donate. This means you can win money for your self and also have my match donated or you can donate your winnings as well.

 

We still have not decided the charity yet. The donations will be transparent and documented. I will post the proof of donation on the site. Hopefully the charity we go with will have some sort of receipt or reference #

 

So far we have a total of $78.00 being donated. I will announce winners for the next few contests this Sunday. Lets try to break $200.00

Wow Awesome! Very Generous of you guys!

Thanks for upping the dates a bit. Seems like every time I start hashing my customers bury me in work. Not a bad thing but kills me on the fun stuff.

lol woops.

 

One of the things I asked for was

 

6. All submitted renders must have the creators email address branded in the lower right hand corner in black Arial text.

 

I wanted you guys to do this so there was no mix up with who modeled what. And I didnt know if I would be swamped with submissions so I wanted a way to contact the winners.

 

No biggie.

Great work so far guys. I wish we could get one more person to make it interesting.

Ok.

 

I will find something. I just want it to go to the right place, not get absorbed into charities that pretend to be non profit but yet people make a living off them.

Local food kitchens are the most direct and the recipients get the biggest benefit.

 

Almost all of the well known charity organizations are nothing more than profitable tax shelters for the ones running them. All they need to do is donate something around 20% of their profits and they dwindle that down to peanuts after all the bloated write-offs and high salaries they take....

Hi,

 

Jason has of course already used an LED-light for his lightdims commercials, but since I had a little time and wanted to create one, I just did a little LED-light here.

It is "rigged" (there is an on/off-pose to switch it on and off) and while it is really simple I hope someone still finds it useful.

 

See you

*Fuchur*
