Here are the amended rules and regulations for the design contests:

General Rules:

• Please do not start new contests

• ALL designs must be your own original idea.

• ALL designs must be hand-drawn using traditional mediums and/or the computer. Images can be colored in Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro and/or any other image program. (remember, the computer is a design aid NOT a design tool.)

• ABSOLUTELY NO CHOPS ALLOWED!

• Please submit either 1 3/4 perspective view of the front or rear and/or 1 – 3 seperate views of the front, rear or side. You may submit all 5 views but please remember it will be counted as one entry.

• No interiors need to be designed unless specified to do so, if you design an interior and it was not asked for, it will not be included in voting.

• Contest entrys are NOT to be posted in the General Design Area for critique until after voting is completed.

Design Challenges

The purpose of the Design Challenge is to semi simulate the type of design work done at actual car companies, ranging from exterior design and/or Interior design as well as concept design.

Design Challenge Rules:

• Contests will run for 25 DAYS and will be extended or shortened at the discretion of the moderator.

• Only ONE entry is to be posted in the contest thread, any other image posted after your original submission will be discarded.

• Participants are encouraged to post development sketches and ideations in the Contest Development Thread (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=16571)

• When submitting entries please use an image hosting site (such as imageshack, photobucket etc) to host your image. Please make sure all images are 900 pixels or smaller in width. If you like, you may also provide a brief description explaining the idea behind your design.

• On the specified date, all contests will close at 12:00AMEST

• Please ensure your image is working and there are no broken links by the closing date of the contest.

Design Challenge Voting:

• You cannot vote for yourself

• Score each design between 0 – 5 points

• Voting will be open for 5 DAYS and will be extended or shortened at the discretion of the moderator.

• Vote for the QUALITY of the design and NOT for the designer.

• The design with the most points wins the challenge, and the winner will be asked to submit two topics to be polled in order to determine the topic for the next contest.

• Winners have a week to submit ideas for the next contest. If the deadline for submission passes, the runners-up or the moderator will choose two topics instead.

Design Battles

The Design Battles allow designers to hone their skills by challenging their peers to one-on-one battles. The emphasis here will be on speed and innovative ideas, as a short (72 hour) time limit will narrow the time available for finely-polished presentations.

Design Battle Rules:

1. Instead of individual challenges, four designers will be chosen in the order received and placed into a list at random.org (http://www.random.org/lists/) where they will be randomized and assigned a number which will be staggered into an odd/even bracketed matchup. Each session will go for two rounds and a battle royale, where the winner of each round will face off against each other. (Confused? see the attached graphic). A call for participants for the next session will be posted in the Design Battleground - Discussion thread (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=16544).

2. Once the topic has been assigned (established by the moderator, with community input) as usual challengers will have ~72 hours (3 days) to complete their entries. Should one challenger not finish his entry in that time, he will forfeit the battle and the opposing challenger will win by default. There will be no extensions. For each round, challengers will be working in a vacuum, meaning; once your entry is completed you will PM ME (the moderator) a link to your image (just to keep things fair and unbiased if one challenger happens to finish before the other). I will post both entries at the same time in a seperate thread which will be created in the general contest area for each session. The thread will remain locked until both entries are received and will only be open for voting and critiques once both entries have been posted. Voting will be open for 48 hours once the winner has been chosen the cycle will repeat. (In the event of a draw, the almighty DoMiNo (http://www.carspyshots.net/member.php?u=47) or Ascariss (http://www.carspyshots.net/member.php?u=33) will be consulted as a tie-breaker).

3. Battles are open to EVERYONE, so lets not get caught up on trivial things like skill level. Your willingness to participate should be based on just wanting to get your creative juices flowing, letting loose and having a little fun. These battles are also a terrific way to hone your skills and up your game.
