AFMOTY 2014: Official Rules and Entry Information
Welcome to AFMOTY (AF Model Of The Year) 2014!

Here are few simple rules that everyone has to follow in order to participate in AFMOTY.

Builders are to submit 1 (one) image of their best finished car or bike model from 2014, and members will vote for their favorite.

AFMOTY 2014 is open to:

* AF members who have joined AF BEFORE the 1st December 2014 only.
* Open to model cars, trucks, and bikes only, in any scale.
* Entries must be completed in 2014 calendar year, between the dates of 1/1/2014 and 12/31/2014 by AF members registered before 1st December 2014. Models don’t have to be STARTED in 2014. Models started before 2014, but FINISHED in 2014 are allowed.
* Deadline for entries is 10th of January 2015, 12PM Central Time.
* Only ONE model may be entered per person.
* The Judges decisions will be FINAL.

Format will be the similar to all AFMOTY contests of the past. Builder's usernames will be displayed with their entry image. This is done in order to make MOTY more of a model contest, rather than model photo contest. If voters want to check out any of the entries more closely, they could look for WIP threads based on member’s user name. If voters want to cast their votes based just on the image posted, they could do that too. Gives a bit more flexibility to the voters and objectivity to the contest.

All entry images will have an entry number, builder’s username, and a model description (e.g. 31. klutz_100, 1/24 Lamborghini Jota). There will be no links to the WIP threads posted in the entry thread.


Send a PM to me (360spider) ( entitled: MOTY (Your username)

Example: MOTY gionc

Include: ONE image of your model. Composite images (images that have smaller images embedded on the main picture) are allowed. Image must be NO LARGER than 1920 x 1080 pixels. The image must be hosted with a large, reputable image hosting service such as photobucket or flickr. No images hosted on personal websites or other small/obscure/unknown hosting services, please. This is for reliability issues only.

Include: A short title/scale/description of the subject of your build. (no more than 1-2 lines long)

IMPORTANT! Include: A link to the thread for your build in either Completed or In Progress sections. Only entries that have In Progress or Finished threads on AF will be accepted.

Entries that do not follow this format will not be accepted.

I will PM you confirming your entry. If you don’t get my confirmation 3 days after your entry submission, please check with me. There will be no more entries once official Entry thread is posted.

Finally, there will be no ongoing updates as to who is in the lead, etc. All voting will be kept anonymous, and winner will be announced after voting is over and all votes are counted. Me and my team will be pestering you about voting and stuff though on a continuous basis.


* Voting will start on or about January 11th, 2015 when the Official AFMOTY 2014 Entries thread is posted, and will run for 10 days. The end of voting will be announced in THIS thread.
* Each vote must be identified by entry number and description.
* To vote, simply send a PM to tonioseven, BVC500, ChristopheB, and Kjenjak with your vote. Include all usernames in the recipient window of your PM
* In the title window of your voting PM, place MOTY votes: (your username) ex- MOTY votes: gionc
* Votes not received by all 4 (four) judges will not be counted. Once again, make sure your voted goes to ALL - tonioseven, BVC500, ChristopheB, and Kjenjak * You must allocate a total of 6 points to THREE (3) MODELS.

1st place = 3pts
2nd place = 2pts
3rd place =1pt

* Identify the builds you wish to apply your votes to by their entry number and description
* NO OTHER VOTING METHODS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Votes sent to me will not be counted
* Only AF members that joined BEFORE 1st December 2014 may vote. This is intended to avoid the possibility of people logging on with different names to vote again. If a vote is suspect, it will be investigated and if necessary deleted along with any involved entries.
* You CAN NOT vote for your own model.
* The judges decision will be FINAL.
* In the event of a tie, the model that received the most 3pt votes will be declared the winner. If still a tie - then the most 2pt votes.

Good luck, have fun, and let's see your best from 2014!!

Seriously? I even highlighted it red in the rules.

Do I have to submit a pic?

Would a good text description suffice?
