I understand your point, and similarly there could be fewer Apophysis winners simply because of the high resolution print requirements (which need to be processed in "slices" using Apophysis, making it a very time consuming procedure which is not always possible).

However, the fact remains that generally your chances are much better if you're using UF, whatever the reasons... and it is discouraging.

"They can have such information - but they NEED to state Publicly and in their Official Rules that it will not be made available to anyone but the person who needs it to give me my Millions of dollars in Winnings."

Actually there is no *need* to do that, it's actually written *in law* and applies whether stated in contest rules or not *unless* it's explicitly stated somewhere that the information *will* be used for other purposes - as is done by Facebook, Megaupload, or on almost anything else you register to be a member of - some of these give you a check box to opt out of information sharing and others don't (and of course nearly all have the option set for sharing by default).

Also as I said before, unless you are *legally* known by a pseudonym or have a registered business name then you'd have to give your real name in every art related contest and event I've ever come across in the UK.

> And every art contest I have entered through 3D World type places and magazines and forums has no such requirement.

Remember the prize for this contest is to be included in real world exhibitions, the cost of printing/framing the winning entries covered by the sponsors (as described in the rules).
In the event of a winning image later being found to be fraudulently submitted (for whatever reason) then whoever submitted it is liable for recuperation of costs - hence the need for "real" names.

I will add that on the subject of contests requiring real names Javier said that he's participated on many such panels as Professor of Architecture where the contests were for " real buildings, students works, urban projects, art works, jobs at the university etc" and in all cases only the legal "real name" of entrants was acceptable.

As I said before if you wish your real name not to be known publicly then simply ask first and only enter if you are able to submit using your real name but publicly i.e. in the exhibition (virtual and real, entries and winners) etc. an alternative pseudonym is allowed instead.


As mentioned - I insist the option be part of the listed rules and not a private, non-binding, agreement.

Nothing less is acceptable to me.

I understand the need for such information, but they only state that emails are confidential.  email addresses are the least important thing to keep confidential, not the most.  Until that is Official; thanks, but No Thanks.

Yesterday.

I did register but not receive a log in code.
Checked mailbox tripple-twice including the box for unwanted mail.
 Then registered again but used live.nl email instead of a gmail account but also there no response.

Still happy though
made some nice images
3d seahorsevalley still looked good an hour ago ;-)

Wow ,that`s wonderful.
Thanks a very lot for makin my day ;-)
I`ll mail the images first thing in the morning because I am using a mobile router now.

This site does not consume too much data at all as long as pictures and videos are not auto-loaded.

Does anyone know when the winners will be announced? On the contest site it says in October, but not when in October.

Also, when and where will the exhibit take place?

Cheers,

db

We're finishing up the judging now.  I'm not sure when the results will be announced, but I suspect that it'll be within a few weeks.

Congratulate to winners!
But I don't like any of fractals-winners.
My taste differs from Selection Panel Members.

Not even so much as an honorable mention for Biomass. Pretty weak, but congrats to the winners nonetheless.
