This competition is for a long overdue thank you to the man responsible for allowing many to enjoy creating aviation images. The winning entry will be professionally printed, framed and will be sent to Oleg for him to, hopefully, stick on a wall somewhere.

The prize is the honour of producing the picture to be sent.

RULES:

1 - Shots only from any of the IL2 series of games, no photo elements anywhere in the picture. You can composite from other screenshots but they must be from IL2.

2 - No text on pictures, any messages etc will feature in the border of the frame.

3 - Pictures can be edited as you like other than mentioned above.

4 - I expect most if not all members of staff will enter so it will be judged by professional traditional and digital aviation artists who I will contact. These artists will remain anonymous, but I assure you fair play. I will not be a judge as I will be entering too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As the winning entry will be printed please keep hold of the full sized version to be used if required.

All entrants are invited to send me a scan of their signature which will feature on the border of the picture. If there is enough room your name will be printed under your signature for identification (assuming you have a signature like mine!) ONLY MEMBERS ENTERING A SHOT QUALIFY FOR THIS.

Send the scan to monstad@screenshotart.com

Post you entries here (http://www.screenshotart.com/index.php?showtopic=8249)

The competition closes 15th June 2005

Best of luck all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh fantastic...I will watch this with great interest.
Are the participants allowed to change/paint the propellers for more realistic ones and/or allowed to paint in something else for example improving a parachuting pilot by overpainting or altering dimensions of the body in photoshop??

I know U said; edit as U like without photoelements but some editing is often done with brushes and somewhat overpainting in photoshop.

Good initiativ....thanks http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I may not enter myself, but there are some seriously good screenshot artists out there and the eye-candy should be pleasant to see.
