    What work should I submit?
    The theme of the contest is to create a visual representation of a garden - whatever that means to you . In the contest will be judged both idea and execution of the project. Unleash your imagination!

    I'm in! How to apply?
    You need to register or login and make a new thread on this forum: The Secret Garden - Challenge 2016. First you need only to claim your access, but until Evermotion Challenge ends (17th of January 2016), you will have to post a few "Work in Progress" renders and the final work.

    You must post at least 5 (five) WIP renders (Work In Progress) in your forum thread before 17th of January, 2016:
    - Concept Sketch or reference photo,
    - Modeling,
    - Texturing,
    - Lighting and Rendering,
    - Post Effects and Composting,

    What tools can I use?
    Work has to be genereted in 3d software. You can use every 3D software and rendering engine you want, post processing inside Photoshop, After Effects or other 2D software is allowed. Don't forget to write about software you used in your challenge thread.

    Oh boy! Can I have two (or more)?
    Sorry, multiple entries are not allowed.

    And last but not least...
    The work you submit to this Challenge must be your own personal work, groups and companies are not allowed. You can use ready-made 3d models or textures, but you have to give credits for people / companies that have made them. Final submission resolution should be not lower than 1200px (the longest edge).

    Show Your skill to the world! Good luck!

    Evermotion Team

    Arch-vis is an abreviation of :Architectural visualisation.
    there is a diffrence between architecture and landscaping.
    no more ideas to propose? or is it just a censure for some arch-vis artists?
    frankly and with my respects to all, i think that it's not a worthy subject of such a contest.
    create a secret garden for the annual arch-vis contest! serious? !!
    good luck for all

    The theme of the contest is to create a visual representation of your loft interior.
    I believe there is a need for a small edit

    For what reason ever, I am not able to open a new thread at your Secret garden Challenge. Can you help, please?
    Is there any "you can only open a new thread, after having replied on 5 other threads"?

    Luceam: only the first post is moderated, but it is moderated manually in working hours, usually it takes 24 hours, more on weekends. You should be able to post now.
