EDIT: This is the rule set we’re going to move forward with after hearing out discussions and poll results. Thanks, everyone for the input!
- All entries must be made during the current month. Assets must be newly made.
- Any Tools/Systems/Workflows that pre-existed can be used.
This has come up quite a lot recently, and I wanted to get a pulse check with what the community wants to allow so that we can officially support or deny entries.
Should VFX Sketches allow entries which were made (or started) before the Sketch month?
As of current, we do not allow entries that were made prior, as that can be seen as deterring other other perhaps less experienced contestants that enter who are focused solely on winning first or second. However, I could see a world where it could act as a large gathering of peoples work and allow open discussion of how things are done, as well as encourage people to try new things like we currently try to do.
Comment below if you have other thoughts. Thanks, everyone!
Disclaimer: the poll is not a deciding factor, but will help inform the final decision.
