Updates are in red. Last Update: April 23rd.

ALL SCALE TREK "TO BOLDLY GO" MODEL & MINIATURE CONTEST
Sponsored by Multi-Verse Models

Theme: Anything goes! Any size, scale, design (canon or not), race and era is allowed. As long as it looks like it could fit in within the Star Trek universe. We place no limitations on your creativity!

Including (but not limited to):

Normal builds, kitbashes and scratchbuilds.
Starships, shuttles, space stations, figures and props.
TV, Movies, Lost era, Alternate universe or 25th century.
Federation, Klingon, Romulan or other alien races.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ENTRY RULES

1) One (1) creation per member. Any scale, design, race and era (canon or not) is allowed, provided it looks like it could be used within the Star Trek universe.

2) Construction materials can be any type of kit parts (starships, planes, armor, cars, etc), in addition (but not limited) to household items, or basic materials such as foam or styrene.

3) 3D printing a physical creation (in part or in whole) is acceptable provided you own (or have the rights to use) the mesh. Proof of this will be required upon submission.

4) Entries must be new builds, and therefore cannot have been entered in previous competitions.

5) If we have enough entries, we may break this contest down into categories, but for now, all entries will be judged together. So, a starship will be judged against someone else's shuttle, and against a space station as well.

6) In order to enter the contest each participant must PM or e-mail me (contest@allscaletrek.com). I will then give you thread creation access in the Contest Entries section, so that you can start your WIP thread.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PHOTOS/PICTURES

7) Including photos/pics of your work is mandatory. The more of pics you include as your build progresses, the better. High resolution pics (1000x1000) are preferred.

8) The minimum requirements are six (6) pics. One (1) pic of parts/materials at the start, one (1) of the middle stage of your build and four (4) of your finished design. The finished build pics must include shots of the top, side, front and back.

9) Use of image editing programs to enhance your pics is allowed, but only to make minor adjustments, such as lighting. Adding "special fx" or backgrounds is prohibited.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JUDGING

10) Entries will be judged primarily on creativity. Technical skills will be taken into consideration but aren't as important. This is to ensure we even the playing field for modelers of all skill levels. Simply put, the more imaginative the creation, the better your chances are of winning.

11) The Judges will consist of the AST Admin staff and the contest sponsor.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
