Create an image of any kind of environment!
Images can be in any style and genre, realistic or imaginary, as long as the natural environment is visually predominant. You can use imported objects and figures, but keep in mind that the judges will focus primarily on the quality of the 3D landscape.
Authorized Software Packages
You may use your application of choice, in combination with any of the e-on software products. This includes any version of VUE (Theme-Packs, 3D SuperHero, Frontier, Esprit, Studio, Complete, Infinite or xStream), including the free Personal Learning Edition and the free VUE Pioneer.
The 3D Environment competition is open to everyone, hobbyists and professionals alike. The judging will be based solely on the quality, originality and artistic merit of the images, not on the software used to create them.
In the first stage of the competition, e-on’s Picture of the Day contest team will select 10 finalists from all submissions in each category. The finalists’ images will be displayed on the e-on website, with links to their personal website/gallery. In the second stage, our judges will pick the winners out of the finalists.
