Annual Fractalforums.com Fractal Art Competition 2012


5th Anniversary - "the possibilities are infinite!"

This year the fractalforums.com annual fractal art competition goes into its fifth round.
This year a motto should guide each contestant, the motto is the slogan of the forums:

"the possibilities are infinite"

Prizes are sponsored by user GFWorld, as prizes each winner in the sections will get its
winning image ( still image for movies ) printed on a cup of coffe, and additionally i
include Fractalforums.com Calendar 2012 in the sending.
 

General Guidelines:

- Submission Period last from 1st of May until 1st of June

Additional Information

This year i want to produce a calendar for 2013 a second time, calendar layouting
will start after the compo is over, but: the calendar will only go in print, if at
least 50 Pre-Orders are paid, with that money the calendar can go into print ...
but more on that later

Hi Christian,

can you clarify the rules on the 5 minute film?

Does it have to be five minutes of one single segment - or can it be made up of, say, 5 x 1 minute segments? (if this can still tell a story)

I'm guessing the soundtrack has to be original or creative commons -i.e., not copyrighted material.

minimum length 5 minutes, the style is your own decision, if you want to show 10 still images, in 5 minutes, with music, it is your decision wink
try to connect them, try to blend them, try to zoom each others, let your creativity flow cheesy

Hello,

I tried to submit an image to the competition, but it is unclear which page I need to submit to. I found a gallery with two images thus far submitted (and I made a comment about the first image submitted), but I am not sure which gallery my image was submitted to, and I cannot find it. It is called Tsunami Curve.

Please show me the link where I can officially submit my art. and please let me know where on the page to upload.

Thank you!

@ventrella, sorry that i have to ask.... but.... did you actually read the above announcement ?!?!??! and additionally, did you read in which section you uploaded your image ?!?!? i think not, you uploaded your images to the promo banners section, this will be used to further announce the compo as banners above the page ... so, please just use links provided above to choose right categories, i have moved your images to the "wildstyle" section ...

if it is longer than five minutes it would go into film ... if it is shorter in animation ...
i am unsure if i should restrict usage of swf, or allow it ... but in my eyes it is clearly
allowed ...

just in case flash animations go in film or in animation ?

Maybe it's just that I don't post here enough to really know how the image submission system works, but I don't know what you mean by submitting from the gallery. If I go to the gallery and use any of the add picture links it requires me to choose a category and the Annual Competition and its subcategories aren't listed unless we're supposed to submit it to "Annual Art Compo 2012 Promo." Am I trying to submit it from the wrong place or are we supposed to make a new topic on the child board and attach it there?

I noticed the same thing.

Tried to upload a test pic, but no wildstyle category option.
Tried 'competitions' but it ended up only in 'Recent Pictures (list all)
