When CGarchitect ran the Architectural 3D Awards 2011 to resounding success, they were approached to run more contests like it. CGarchitect awarded Ballistiq with another contract to repurpose the 3D Awards contest system for the Autodesk 3ds Max Design Hero contest! The contest system is streamlined for running online contests with submissions containing large media files such as images and videos, and automatically preparing them for online review and judging.
Here’s your chance. Submit a scene or design you’ve created using Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2012 or Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2012 software, and it could be featured on the next version of 3ds Max Design box cover and splash screen.
Not only will the winning submission be seen by thousands of 3ds Max Design users on a daily basis, to the winning designer will also receive a 3DBOXX 8550 XTREME Quad GPU Workstation (with 4 Nvidia GPUs; 1 Quadro and 3 Tesla), plus US$5,000 in cash. Runners-up will receive an NVIDIA® Quadro® 5000.
Autodesk is looking for inventive concepts or renderings of architectural design, mechanical or industrial/product designs like buildings, bridges, vehicles, furniture, and consumer products. Entries will be judged on imagination, innovation, and ingenious use of the max logo, not production quality (See the rotating images at the top of this page for reference). Winners will have the opportunity to work with the Autodesk production team to complete final production renderings.
Submit your designs from Friday, September 9, 2011 to Sunday, October 31, 2011.
