2011 Halloween Creative Contest - Now Open!

Halloween Contest 2011
In a small town stricken by a horrifying pandemic, there were those that remained and fell victim to a fate much worse than death. These decaying corpses sought out the 'living' by roaming from town to town to satisy their insatiable appetite for human flesh!
Can anyone or anything stop these zombies from carrying out their mission of changing life as we know it or will we all meet our own fate by the hands of these dark creatures? Only time will tell. As Halloween draws near, be sure to look hard at those that look unearthly as this is the zombies favorite season to add victims to their cause!
Can you envision what our world would look like if it were ruled by zombies? It's time to let your creative juices flow and interpret what life would be like if the mission of the zombies was satisfied.
The year's theme: The Zombie Apocalypse

My Favorite Time of The Year - HERE... Zombies are cool, Undead and stinky - lol I like that you're going to announce the Winners on Halloween - awesome... I'm hoping animation gets it's own catagory, would love to be able to go from animation to animation... I think in the past it's been unfair that a 3D image wins over a long processed animation project - I'm just stating this for our animators out there - I enter the 3D contest.
StaceyG - You are the Bomb!!! A lot of people have sugested animation has it's own catagory away from 3D Postings... last couple years I had trouble finding which ones were animated, this will help... I love animation, just haven't gotten into it with poser - Good move and it shows you guys at the helm are listening... now about the art charts - lol (I'm sure you have a file on my suggestions - lol) ... "Brains, it's what's for dinner" I already used a few years back... I guess that mean I gotta dig deep into the creative mind for this one - Thanks for the change StaceyG - I think the animators are totally cool with it.
Great to see this year the animations will get their own section! Also i hope the timelimit could raise a little bit course i think one minuut is just a bit to short to tell a story. I do hope i can make an entry but i'm not shure having anough time to finish before closingdate. Well we'll see... Anyway, i'm shure this year too there'll be lots of great entrys!
Will you be making sure that the images up for vote follow the theme? I have noticed over time that image having nothing to do with the theme are posted and sometimes win simply because it's a favorite artist. I have seem this at many sites, not just here. I stopped entering contests because of this.
Sea80, we leave the theme interpretation up to the artist so unless it's just no way it's connected whatsoever, we usually let them have their interpretation. This is one reason one of the requirements is to put in the notes section, your inspiration for your entry as this usually explains how they interpreted the theme. Also all contest entries are anonymous and vote solicitation is against the rules. Hope this helps. Stacey
I notice one of the rules is that we supply Renderosity with our correct name and addresses. Being wary of the internet in general, I'm curious if this information is available to anyone whom does not work for Renderosity (like search engines and other users)? That being said: AWESOME! Zombies! My favorite!
Just a last minute question for the written contest. Is swearing allowed? I didn’t see anything about it in the Terms of Service about it, unless I missed it. Its not like I’m imitating something Quentin Tarantino would write for one of his movies or some of the colorful lines Samuel L. Jackson would say. So far its just 2 words but maybe a few more will be added before its done depending on a reply.
Today is the last days of the Entrees.... kinda sucks that this time of year is already over, I look forward to this contest every year, the entrees came in kinda slow but started picking up, there are a few I really like and I hope the artist's names will be displayed next to their work AFTER the voteing is complete = This is the first year I viewed all of the animations - thank you for puting them in their own catagory and I'm amazed at how many figures these animators were able to put in a scene - a lot of work was done in a short time period, so it excites me even more to learn how to do it... Thanks again Renderosity for the Traditional Hallowen contest!!! ..... one quick question.... this year is almost over and this was the year the logo on the front page was to be changed - ARE THERE ANY PLANS on a contest to do the traditional changing of the logo???
Just got through looking at all the entrees... In past years, I knew which ones would be at the top... and also felt that mine could place... This year, I have felt my art could place, possibly take first - but have felt like voting for someone elses piece - lol... two things I wanted to say before the page is complete - THE VOTING - I would love to be able to vote for 3 pieces - and each one of those votes is for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.... OR, EVEN BETTER you have a page set up to where pictures are randomly shown against each other and you vote for one or the other... the winner gets a life point and moves on, the loser gets a death point and moves down... when all is said and done, a voter should be able to look at all the work they voted on and submit a COMPLETE VOTE on what they think is the BEST all the way through to the WORST..... now, no one wants to get the worst, but if you do, give'm a prize - lol ....also, this is a FREAK'N CONTEST.... contests have rules, people should follow contest rules... how many pictures are in this contest that aren't 800 X 800??? If you can't follow the rules, you shouldn't be allowed to enter - moderators should send the art back to the artist and say set it up 800 X 800 - OR... if I was a mod and got tired of artists not obeying the rules, I'd shrink their art to fit on an 800 X 800 - it would serve the artist right - and maybe it would teach them a valuable lesson - lol THAT'S MY OPINION AND I'M STICK'N TO IT - LOL
