There is a place in every kingdom and country where borders are shaped, wars fought, populations ruled and justice served. This place is the Throne Room. A gigantic stone chair carved in the back of a dark cave, relic from a long forgotten civilization? Maybe the modest wooden throne of an imaginary kingdom in the neighbor’s backyard? Or a shiny leather seat sitting in the center of the control room of a planet spaceship? It’s up to you.

As this new year begins, Allegorithmic is bringing you a new and long awaited environment art contest hosted on Polycount! A team of top artists from the industry will be in charge of judging your submissions, and to to make things better, the prize pool is rather substantial.
Mission: Create a full fledged small to medium scale environment representing a Throne Room.
- The environment can feature any number of props, statues, vegetation, but no living character.
- There are no hard limits on polycounts or texture sizes but use your best judgement to keep it reasonable and logical.

What to deliver
- The submission will include:
+ 3 beauty shots of the final environment taken from the real time engine of your choice.
+ A construction shot of the throne itself, showing the high poly mesh, low poly mesh with wireframe and texture sheets, as well as a concept drawing or reference sample if applicable.

Judging Process

The jury will focus its attention on the following aspects:

- Presentation – Wow the jury with some truly breathtaking environments!

- Originality – The judges probably don’t want to see 50 versions of the same Iron Throne…

- Technical mastery and craft – Work cleanly and show that you can come up with smart, creative solutions to the challenges you encounter along the way.

- WIP constancy – The more you document your creation process, the more others can learn from you!

- Substance – Using the Substance toolset is absolutely not mandatory, but a smart use of the tools for any part of your environment will get you extra points.
