As you have known, the finalist with most votes is “Wafu~” photo by Yuu, featuring the lovely Kud from Little Busters!. The runner up goes to nikicorny‘s “The Secret Garden” by a narrow margin (2%). Congratulations!
Well, did you like it, Nendonesian? What do you think? ^^
If you recall our review of the iOS app Nendoroid Planet a few months ago, there is a section titled “The MUSEUM” with 2 sub-section: “Catalog” and “3D Models“. In 3D Models, we can view the 3D-rendered models of a few Nendoroid. Beside zooming and rotating, we can also take photos of the 3D Nendoroid with our environment as the photo background.
Yep, this capability is now being featured as a photo contest. The main rules is simple: submit one photo of 3D-rendered Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter or Nendoroid Dead Master, taken with Nendoroid Planet app. The submission has been started on August 31 and will end on September 22. The prize for best photo submission is a BRS illustration made and signed by huke, plus a signature of Sakamoto Maaya! The winner will also get a copy of PSP game Black Rock Shooter: The GAME. Wooot! (o . o)/
The bad news is … well, the contest is only applicable for Japan citizen. That’s it – international participants are not eligible to participate in the photocon. Awww … (-_-“)
Firstly we would like to apologize for the delay of the Nendonesia PhotoCon #2‘s finalists announcement. It was initially planned for Monday, and then got pushed into Wednesday (or Thursday on GMT+7).
Well then, the top 10 entries have been chosen out of 77 participating photo entries in the Qualifying Round. For any of you whose entries did not make it into the Final Round … well, don’t let it make you down. You may participate again in our next photocon. ^^
In any case, kindly scroll past the break to view Top 10 Finalists of Nendonesia PhotoCon #2. ^^
Update: Comment section is closed for some reason.
Anyway, for you who feel that some entries do not appear to qualify as finalists, well, we could only say that the photo theme and concept weights much more than technical aspects of the entries. The reason behind this score weighting is related to the camera – which is a mere mobile phone camera, not a full fledged DSLR. That’s it! ^^
First, we want to say thank you for your participation in Nendonesia Photo Contest #2. We have received many entries internationally, despite all of the restriction in the submission. Thank you for your enthusiasm, Nendonesian!! ^^
Anyway, now that we have closed the entry submission period, we are getting into the scoring phase. There will be two rounds to determine the winners: Qualitfying and Final Round.
In the Qualifying Round, we will have the judges put scores on your photos based on some criteria. Top 10 entries will be picked and they will qualify into the Final Round. This round is expected to finish by next week. ^^
In the Final Round, we will ask for your help, Nendonesian, to choose the winning photos. We will post the qualifying top 10 entries onto either (or both) our Facebook page and DeviantArt group. There, you will be able to cast your votes (# of likes for Facebook and # of favorites for DeviantArt) for the finalists. The judges will cast their votes to some of the finalists as well. Yes, the final scoring will be determined by the judges and you, Nendonesian. ^^
Well then, I guess that is all about the scoring phase for Nendonesia Photo Contest #2. May the best photos win! ^^
In order to celebrate Nendonesia’s 1st Anniversary, Nendonesia and rendoroid-shoppe are holding a photo contest, dubbed Nendonesia Photo Contest #2.
