MOTY 2017 Rules
Welcome to our second annual Online Model Of The Year Contest! The following article will go over this year’s rules for the contest.
Who can enter the contest?
Only registered members of www.scifiantasy.com can register and enter the contest. You can register by following this link. You can enter any scale, manufacturer, scratch-built kit. It can be a diorama, stand alone build or vignette. The work must be your own build. As, long as you built the kit, it may be entered. Meaning if it was a commission build and it sold you can still enter the build because it was your craftsmanship. If an entered kit is proven not to be built by the entrant the build will be disqualified. Each contestant can submit up to 5 models for this contest. All entries must fall into the science fiction or fantasy genres. If you have any questions about your entry please contact us here.
What do I have to provide SciFantasy for my submission?
Please submit unedited photos of your build if possible for better viewing. Larger photos are better for the site. Your photos should have a clean background and this year we will have judges for the top three winners. You should have different angles of your build for the judges to make their decision. A short description of your build such as kit, scale, paints used, etc. You can email your submissions to email@example.com please set the topic as MOTY 2016 or you can send us your submission through dropbox. You can find us there using the same email address.
What are the entry dates for the contest?
You may enter your build from January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2016, 11:59 p.m. EST.
When will the voting take place?
This year’s voting will be for the Community Choice Award. The top three builds will be judged by a panel for this year’s MOTY winners. Voting will begin on January 1, 2017, and end on January 6, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. The winners will be announced on January 7, 2017.
How are votes cast?
Voting will be done by the modeling community. Each person will be able to vote on their top choice for the Community Choice Award. In the event of a tie, the tied entries will have a face-off vote to determine the winner. Each voter will be able to vote on one build for the Community Choice Award.
1st Place – Crystal Tower Award
2nd Place – Custom Glass Award
3rd Place – Custom Glass Award
Community Choice Award – To Be Announced.
All awards are custom made. Allow 4 to 8 weeks for delivery. All awards will be etched with the Scifiantasy logo, the winners name, model and year 2017.
We decided because the builds and voting go into two years it will be the 2015/16, 2016/17 and so on for the Model Of The Year Contest.
The trophies will be engraved with the year the vote took place.
