Wightwood Abbey Painting Contest

Thank you everyone for your entries and participation in voting! Dennis Haas is the winner of the popular vote with his entry “Abbey_Bear” 🙂

Rules & Prizes

3D Terrain Awards LogoThe Wightwood Abbey painting contest is open to any owner of a Wightwood Abbey printed model. Whether you purchased the .stl file and printed the model yourself or purchased a printed model from one of our licensed printers you are eligible to enter this contest.

We're super excited about seeing what our talented customers can do and all entrants will receive a coupon worth 15% off their next purchase on our website! *

To enter you must paint any one model from Infinite Dimensions Games' 'Wightwood Abbey' line and submit at least 5 photographs of your endeavour as follows:

  1. A photograph that best shows off your work! This is the shot that people will vote for. You want it to really grab people's attention and you are free to use other scenic elements in the photo such as miniatures, trees, etc., and also make use of dramatic lighting.
  2. A clear and well lit shot of the entire model that best shows your paint job for judging purposes.
  3. A reverse angle photograph of the above so that we can see both sides of the painted model.
  4. A detail shot that best shows off your favorite detail in the painted model.
  5. A photograph of the interior of your model (if applicable). If the model you have painted does not have an interior then you are exempt from submitting an interior photo.
  6. You may submit up to 3 extra photos that you think we should see to judge your entry. This brings the maximum number of submitted photos to eight, of which you must include the shots listed above (main, front angle, reverse angle, detail, and interior if applicable).

Please take a look at these Sample photos to understand what is needed for your entry.

You must also provide the following when you submit your entry:

  • Your real name and the name you would like used publicly.
  • Your mailing address.
  • Your email address.

You must submit your entry between March 15th and  March 31st, after which we will no longer accept entries for this contest.

Public voting begins on April 1st and ends at midnight of April 15th. Each visitor to the contest page may vote once for each entry by 'liking' the entry. The more 'likes' an entry has the higher it will score in the popularity component of the judging process. As well,  the entry with the most 'likes' at the end of the voting period will also win the prize for most popular entry.

Judging the entries

Your entry will be judged by us and awarded points based on the following criteria:

  • Painting quality

After the voting poles have closed on April 15th, we will evaluate all entries and winners will be announced soon thereafter.
