By popular demand we have extended the submission deadline to April 11th at 11:59PM Pacific Time! We hope this bit of extra time will allow all of you to get your scenes to the highest level of quality you are capable of and to create something you're really proud of. If you've already submitted, you can use the extra time to refine your entry further and resubmit, or create a whole new entry.
Remember: we don't need super high detail/quality renders (i.e. high render settings), but we do want the most well designed and detailed scenes. Spend your time refining your terrain shapes and shading, adding more layers of rocks and debris, increasing randomness and the realistic look of nature, adding additional layers of population, underbrush, etc., and increasing the realism and variety of your skies, atmosphere, and lighting. We'll be able to see the potential in your scene even if rendered at relatively low quality (e.g. even at the default of 0.5 Detail and AA3).
