Check out all of our winning entries for the 2011 holiday product contest in this post here


Hi everyone,

The holidays are nearly here and that means it’s time for a new IMVU product contest! We have put your feedback to good use and have made a few changes with this contest, so read on for all the exciting details:

Our IMVU holiday product contest will have 3 separate categories: original mesh, retextured clothing product [male and female], and retextured room. In the past, we have chosen the retexturing meshes but this time we want you to decide! Part of the fun of this contest (as well as something the judges will think about) will be the ability to locate a great mesh to retexture. We are challenging our IMVU Creators to come up with fun, interesting entries!

General Guidelines & Selection Criteria

--This contest entry period begins today, November 15, 2011 and ends December 5, 2011
--All submissions must be GA; if you have specific questions about a pose or image for your entry, please reach out to me or Varsha.
--Submission must be your own work; any entry with copyrighted art within products will be automatically disqualified.
--All submissions must have been submitted to the catalog November 15th and later. Products previously submitted to the catalog will not be accepted.
--Only one submission per person per product type will be accepted (example: IMVUuser123 can enter one female clothing item, one gingerbread house, etc.; they cannot enter 2 female clothing items, 3 gingerbread houses, etc.).
--We will send all Creators their submission status by Wednesday, December 7th via a homepage message. Any winning products that are to be gifted by IMVU will be locked by December 7th and gifted the following weekend.
--All entries will be judged based on the selection criteria noted in this post by members of IMVU staff.

Original Mesh: Holiday Lawn Ornament

Ever see those wacky lawn ornaments that people put up during the holidays? Well let your imagination run wild with this category: create the craziest, funniest, or most beautiful lawn ornaments that celebrate the holiday season. Giant snowmen, a winter wonderland carnival, a candy cane forest—these are just some of the crazy possibilities you can add to your room mesh. The decorations are the main focus of this category, but you should build the lawn ornaments into your room mesh, so the final product has both the exterior of a building and decorations outside of the building.

Specific Evaluation Criteria
-Room product must be directly derived from an IMVUInc base product, such as this one.
-Room must at least have exterior architecture of a house, but does not need to have an interior.
-Room must have at least one discernible lawn ornament, but it does not have to represent a particular holiday. For ideas on these, try searching “holiday lawn ornaments” in your browser.
-We are looking for high quality mesh creation, high quality textures, creativity, and a general “wow” factor (animations, ease of avatar interaction, effort, etc.)
-Try to keep your mesh file size light. For room intros and basics, check out our room tutorials.
-Use high quality textures; be sure any patterns look smooth and seamless
-Use interesting seating/standing nodes: the best IMVU parties are ones where everyone can interact with each other easily. Try to keep this in mind as you place your nodes in your landscape

Retextured Outfits

For this category, you will be able to choose any clothing mesh in order to create an incredible holiday elf costume! Part of the fun is finding a properly created mesh and easy to follow templates. We are accepting both male and female outfits. If your item wins first place and you would like your item to be gifted to all users, we will need the approval of each of the creators in the derivation chain.

Specific Evaluation Criteria
--Retextured clothing mesh must be a full-body mesh. We will not accept only a shirt, or only pants/skirt. However, you have the freedom to choose a mesh that gives you flexibility.
--Use high quality textures; be sure any patterns look smooth and seamless
--You may add an additional mesh to your outfit as long as it goes along with the ‘holiday elf’ theme.
--We will evaluate each clothing item based on texture quality, mesh selection, and creativity.
--Only female clothing item and one male clothing item entry per person; you may not enter multiple female clothing items or multiple male clothing items.

Retextured Gingerbread House Room

Similar to the clothing category, we are leaving the mesh up to you! Create a fantastic gingerbread house from one of the many available house meshes in the IMVU catalog. If you win and you would like your product to be gifted to all users, we will need the permission of each user in the derivation chain.

Specific Evaluation Criteria
-Room must at least have the exterior architecture of a house, but it does not need to have an interior. The focus is on the exterior house retexture.
-Use high quality textures; be sure any patterns look smooth and seamless.
-You may add your own meshes to your entry, as long as it goes with the theme (gingerbread house).
--We will evaluate each gingerbread house room based on texture quality, mesh selection, and creativity.

Note: since we are trying out a new method in our product contests (allowing contest entrants to choose their own mesh), we will be checking the parent mesh for each entry. Please do not “save” and “upload” without making any changes to the textures; such products will not win first place. Using a beautiful mesh does not mean an automatic win; the focus is the retexture. We want to challenge everyone to create new types of products and improve their skills, so reach out to your fellow creators for help!

No prize for the Gingerbread house re-texture? Or is it supposed to be the same as the Elf outfit and you just forgot to copy/paste it again?

Thanks Sin!

Waya: you can definitely still win 1st, 2nd, 3rd place/a special mention if the mesher doesn't allow the product to be gifted! We want to award credits for hard work and creativity, but we need the mesher's permission in order to gift your derivation. If the winners need help in receiving this permission, I am happy to help. However, I recommend reaching out to the mesher as soon as you enter your product into our contest.

Good question.

That would be a cute mesh and users would be able to add and re-size it as they wished to their own holiday rooms.

Can't quite make it table top size, but a cute little playhouse gingerbread house size!

The lawn ornament mesh thing doesn't make sense. It sounds like you want a furniture item, but then you say stuff about rooms.

So do you want a lawn ornament, or a room with a house and a lawn with ornaments on it?

So glad I wasn't the only one who got somewhat confused about the post. After rereading the post multiple times, as I understand it, the lawn ornament is to be the main feature but they want it in a room with the out side of a house or some other scene there but it doesn't have to be as detailed as the ornament.

\
But I could be wrong.

Beware those who want to make the retextured ginger bread house, because it says that it must be a room, not a furniture, I've seen it right now :S
