Can i ask a silly question?(haha) I know these competitions are free for everyone to use their imagination but since the next Focus will be the same for all regions couldn't it be just about designing the next global Focus?

I'm sure that although thats the case there will be subtle differences between EU and NA versions like we'll be seeing with European Infiniti models.

You can interprit it however you like:

- Fantasy specific US model.
- NA version of a World model.
- How you would've liked the current model to be.

or any other variations! :D

I chose it (as I didn't get a responce) and I think it could be good as its a car nobody seems happy with.

i've never entered a photoshop contest before but i thought i'd give it a shot, especially since i was already thinking of modifying the NA focus to make it less hideous.

original: http://photo.netcarshow.com/Ford-Focus_2008_photo_04.jpg

changes:

-door handles moved down (having it practically at the windowline only accentuates the focus' dorky tall stance)
-more conventional, fusion-inspired face (headlights are actually from the milan though)
-cleaner hood without the center strakes
-bigger wheels

of course i think the current model SHOULD have been the current euro focus, but foregoing that this is what i think the facelift should have been. it's probably not that great, but i've never done a "chop" before and i rarely use photoshop for anything more than touching up my drawings so considering my inexperience i think it turned out well.

That's really CLEAN! for me who doesn't know how the original NA Focus look like, i'd believe yours the actual one!

+1 it looks like an official photo.

Although I still dont like the design, it's a definite improvement. Well done.

I usually don't do well here, though I thought I'd throw my $0.02 in.

Mate i have no idea why you spelled the name FUCOS but that is STUNNING!!!! I see both Kuga and Falcon elements on it, this would have made a perfect design for the Focus facelift!!!! Awesome job!!

I was planning on submitting an entry, however, I ran out of time getting it ready. Once I fix (and finish) it, I'll post it in the Photoshop section.

So is the contest finished? If so I'm a bit disappointed cause i was hoping for more entries. When does the voting begin?

yup it is over, you can vote now, my entry wasn't finished in time and it would not be fair to extend the contest for my own benefit, I am not that evil.
