Nendoroid Planet Photo Contest

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 … (-_-“)

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

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! ^^
