That will be a hard contest :-D will be my first time to design a face!
Are we allowed to make aliens/animals faces? or is it supposed to be a human?

Any face we kept it vague so you guys could be creative.

Just wondering: will the winner's model be printed out for anything, or not this time?

we don't have any events coming up, so this time you 'only' get the $300 in 3D printing.

Haha, ok, that still rules. I'll just have to make sure my model's only $100 or so in case I win, so I can print it with credit to spare. :-D

I'd put the old "Galatean Dream" object in the contest, but I'm sure people are already sick of it ^^

Oh what the heck... At least it will be fun to see how fine it compete against newer designs (I can't produce a new face with my agenda and job...)

Can we get a confirmation that our entry into the contest was indeed entered into the contest? Like an email or something of that nature?

Good idea, what I'll do on Thursday is make a gallery of all the contest models and add the models that are in to that gallery.

Are we allowed more than one entry into this contest?

Just curious: How will a model be chosen as the winner? Will it just be the number of ratings the model has, or a rating:view ratio, or something else?

The email update didn't really explain how voting works.

Shapeways staff will choose the winner.
