BIG SPRING CONTEST 2105
A RETURN TO YOUR ROOTS
Saturday March 21st, 2015 ~ Sunday June 21st, 2015.
- With the exception of the ALL OPEN category all builds must be previously unstarted (as of March 21st, 2015). This ensures ‘common ground’ among all entries.
- Builds that are previously started and/or completed can be entered into the ALL OPEN category.
- All common modelling media is permitted including plastic, photo etch, resin, metal etc…
- All common modelling techniques are permitted including box stock and scratchbuilding.
- A build is considered a diorama if it contains a figure and a base with groundwork. All final entries are subject to category change upon review of the forum staff.
The contest operates on a peer vote system where forum members cast a vote for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category. Voting will take place during the week of June 22 – 26. More information about the vote will be published as the end of the contest nears.
The SMA BIG Spring Contest is part member drive, part good time and part webhosting fundraiser. With that said there is a $5 fee per entry. This revenue helps to pay webhosting and keep the site online.
