This winter we are holding a contest with a difference...and since a winter without holly is like Christmas without Santa, we'd like to invite you to join in!
The holly plant, which is emblematic of winter and Christmas in many cultures, is an evergreen flowering plant found around the world. It's found in the fossil record going back to the Cretaceous period, and its' different species are found at various elevations. Historically it's been used by Druids and Norse cultures, in heraldry to symbolize truth, and is found in many Christmas decoration themes at this time of year.
The Plant Factory is rapidly becoming the tool of choice for creating unlimited plants and trees, so we invite you to become a virtual gardener and create a holly plant!
The contest starts on 15 November and will run until 22 December 2013. The rules follow:
1. You may use any version of The Plant Factory to create your holly. This includes the PLE version.
2. Your holly plant should be saved as .tpfc3d format.
3. You should create several good renders of your holly. Your best render can be uploaded to the Holly Contest gallery.
4. Your holly plant .tpfc3d file and your holly renders should be zipped and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can upload your zip file to a web server and send the download link to email@example.com. Please do not attempt to upload your zip file to the gallery.
The digital botanists at e-on software will judge all entries on accuracy, attention to detail, and quality.
The winner will have a choice of 2 prizes:
Choice 1: The winner will receive an upgrade to the next version of The Plant Factory; so if you own The Plant Factory Studio, you will win a free upgrade to The Plant Factory Producer! If you use The Plant Factory PLE version, you will get the starter version of The Plant Factory Artist. AND the winning plant will become property of e-on software and Cornucopia3D.
Choice 2: The winner will be able to sell their winning plant in the Cornucopia3D store and Cornucopia3D and e-on software will provide extra advertising and promotion. The winner will not receive a The Plant Factory upgrade.
So what do you have to lose? Get busy, have some fun, and you might win a super upgrade to The Plant Factory!
