It's that time of year again where we at CarSpyShots.net like to give out the industry recognized Chop of The Year Award to represent the very pinnacle of Photoshoppery in the automotive sector. (I'm totally not copying and pasting this from the last thread...)

For the newcomers this contest is simple. Post what you believe is your best chop of 2010 (it doesn't have to be a contest entry) before January 2nd (January 2 2011). Then the entries will be put into the virtual lions den that is commonly known as "voting" where the kind members will ruthlessly judge your work.

So, best of luck!

On the retrospective look back of the year front. It's been quite a quiet year here in the Photoshop Contests area (again) so if anyone has any suggestions on how things can be improved please post them here (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=17745) as it could be time we have a little shuffle with the rules and things
before the 2011 season starts.

I will be announcing our Photoshop Champion when the votes from the last contest have been completed. The title is between two people - TheophilusChin (winner of the title in 2006/2007/2008) and Porsche-Power (winner in 2009).

Anyway, thanks for another interesting year, post up your favourite chop and best of luck to you all in 2011!

I know that TheophilusChin is going to be posting an entry soon (as well as some of his friends from another forum) but is nobody else going to enter this?

I don't think this is my best chop this year, but I do think it has the nicest story.
It's the Volvo S60 Convertible: http://www.worldcarfans.com/110061526838/volvo-s60-convertible-image-leaked
It's kind of odd that people tend to believe everything they see..

I rendered this Volvo in January for the 9th anniversary of the hvtm.hu. My first chop was the 2001 Volvo C60 based on the "old" Volvo S60 (http://hvtm.hu/index_en.php3?ID=9000&carID=1&toplist=2) back in 2001.

Hello everyone, fantastic entries, good luck to everyone.

I am extending the deadline to January 2 2011 since I will be away from the computer and will not be able to create accounts for new users.

Please tell your friends at htvm.hu that I will create accounts for them tomorrow afternoon, so they will have plenty of time to enter still :)

Happy New year's everyone

Great to see all the members from the hvtm.hu forums!

Just to draw attention to our rules when posting entries:

Posting Your Entry:
• Do include your username on the image somewhere
• Do make sure the image is working for the deadline
• DoUse the following code to make a thumbnail of your entry:
<a href="URL"><img src="URL" width="300"/></a>

It's really important to use that HTML tag system when posting your image because if you don't it means it takes a lot longer for me to format the entries for voting.

Some of you might have some ideas on how we can improve our contests so please check out this thread (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=17745) and post any suggestions.

As Ascariss said, we'll leave the contest open a little longer so that any new members can post.

I hope some of you new members stick around and enjoy our chop contests in 2011! :)

TheophilusChin, congrats on winning the photoshop contest 2010, you deserve it!
bm88, thank you very very much for the time and effort you put into the contest. If you ever need help with the contests or something similar, don't hesitate to contact me.

As I invited a couple of tuners from hvtm here, to CarSpyShots, I ask our tuners to play the evaluation fairly here as well.

As it is laid down in the voting rules: "Vote for the creativity and quality of the chop, not the artist"

Thanks!

With so many entries voting is going to be very complicated!

For our new members please check the contest rules or look at another contest to see how we award points here at CarSpyShots.

As Hammer has said please take note that you vote on the actual chop - not who created it.

For all the latest news on the contests you can join the CarSpyShots facebook group here (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=130633976949207).
