First prize is for the best overall photo. This one is for the photography geeks out there. I’ll be looking at things like composition, lighting, focus, DoF, subject, scene, and just generally the entire package.
Second prize is for best model. Perhaps you are great at painting and finishing models but you do not have a $2000 DSLR camera with a $1700 lens and tons of lights and reflectors … maybe you shoot with your camera phone. That’s what this prize is for. I’m looking for a great model, even if the photo is not pro quality.
Third prize (3 to be awarded) is for those of you that think maybe your photography or building/finishing skills are not up to par yet but you are working on them. These prizes will be awarded to three people based on a totally random selection process. Three winners will be selected from all of the entries at random. This is to encourage everyone to participate. You may not be a professional model maker or a great photographer… but I still want to see what you are doing with the products that I produce.
First $50 in store credit
Second $30 in store credit
Third $15 in store credit (three 3rd prizes will be awarded)

By submitting a photo or photos to this contest, you agree to allow Allen Rockwell and GameCraft Miniatures to use the photo(s) on any social media, websites, online store, print advertising or any other promotional media.
Photos can be of individual GameCraft Miniatures models, groups of models, game play, etc. Photos can certainly include miniatures from other companies but GameCraft products should be featured in the photo and/or be the main focus of the scene.
The decision of the judge (me) is final. Miniature painting and photography are both art forms and are very subjective. I will pick the photos that appeal to me. You may or may not agree with my choices.
