If they have to be a tank we own in WoT then there's one mangled mess of wreckage coming up!

'cos that's what my tanks usually look like.

I'm thinking that carboard cut outs would be excluded but it doesn't specifically say and that seems like an easy shortcut for a entry. could you clarify?

I noticed that but just found it odd that they weren't specifically excluded.  You could use the cut out to be very accurate to the tank but it would be very boring.

Does one needs to take a picture of, for example the light bulb? I'm asking because it says that one need to take a picture of the source but in the image example the source doesn't show so I'm a bit confused on that one.

 

Also if someone casts a shadow of let's say a toy tank how is that gonna be evaluated? I am guessing not so much points since, imho doing that is not that creative? I think so, but thought I would ask anyway, thanks in advance and good luck everyone!

 

Cool contest, btw!

The "Source" is what is creating the shadow. I.E a model of a tank, your hands, or whatever thing your using.

Cardboard cut-outs are not excluded.  You can definitely do that if you would like.  That having been said, we are looking for something particularly creative, humorous, awe-inspiring, etc.  Maybe even something that makes us scratch our heads and go... "wow, that cardboard cutout is insane!"  haha  (I had actually planned on getting a bunch of people together to use their hands to make a single tank shadow, but I ran out of people who were willing to help me) :P

Sorry about the confusion.  There is no need to take a picture of the light source.

 

Just as long as you have the following in the picture, then everything is awesome:

-your gamertag handwritten on a piece of paper

-the items/hands/etc. that you used to create the tank shadow

-the shadow itself

According to the contest rules, I can use any material right? Well then I plan to use something people would almost never expect.
