MachinUWA III: Journeys (3rd UWA Machinima Challenge - 2011)
We are happy to announce the 3rd Machinima Challenge put forth by the University of Western Australia (UWA). The theme is simply 'Journeys'. We hope you are inspired by this to create many wondrous works as you have been through the years!
PRIZE POOL: $L530,000 (at least)
1st Prize $L100,000
2nd Prize $L70,000
3rd Prize $L50,000
+ L$310,000 in other prizes
DEADLINE: Submissions are open between NOW (Feb 2011) till 1st May 2011
THEME : The theme is 'Journeys'. What the journey is, will be left to the Machinimatographer. A journey through Second Life. A journey of self discovery. A journey within. A journey from SL too RL, or vice-versa. A journey through space, through time, a journey of hope, a journey of despair. Your own journey, or a journey by someone else seen through your eyes... or... through Second Life in 80 Days, whatever you can imagine.
MAJOR RULE: The most important rule is that the journey must either start or end at this location. Winthrop Clocktower at the UWA Main SIM. Winthrop Clocktower is the heart of UWA both in RL & SL. Apart from this, feel free to film anything, anywhere. You may use props at the location, or maybe want to change the footage later during the post process, this is up to you, as long as the clocktower is still recognized.
