hmmm, so whatever happened to those results? did the judges share a similar viewpoint on the entries as myself and several others regarding the lack of marketability and relevance of several entries? Since the Skin a Trik winners have already been announced im beginning to wonder...

Yeah, i don't see anywhere that it says the winning design will be used in a commercial. The video I see is a commercial that was previously made.

I asked someone on here and they said it would go in the commercial. I couldn't think of anything I figured since he works in a gas station the car would be his worst enemy so battery powered or green

haha, well that'd be interesting :) Now i'm also wondering how that'd fit in to the commercial. Especially since the contest didn't specifically ask for a design that depicted the cars earth friendliness. Just to express yourself.

I wonder if anyone has considered that saying mean things about the entries is really inappropriate? Maybe people should be considerate about the artists feelings who did place. I personally like some of these entries.

Everyone has different tastes, and not everyone can be pleased. If you don't like the semi-finalists, then don't look at this news article. But Going out of your way to bash those who did place is completely uncalled for. If you are upset you didn't get in the semi finals, then try again in another contest. *shrug* There's always another chance.

Congrats to all the semi finalists! I look forward to see the placings! :la:

First place gets printed on A car, and taken on a "street tour". 2nd, and 3rd don't.

Okay so it's only one car used for advertisement? Because I don't really think that such flashy designs would be bought by millions of people. Not to be rude, but it's not like you see cars like that every day.

:iconpablopicasso2006:
PabloPicasso2006 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes I agree. This is just for 1. Designs like these are usually only put on cars when someone specifically asks for such a custom design.

Here are the Skin A TRiK Contest 25 Semi-Finalists for Sony [link] Looks like they had DIFFERENT JUDGES over there, or maybe they took their time looking at the entries because the didn't want to be cursed out like these judges! LOL

WOW thats strange... I actually like almost ALL of those designs?! I thought it was a matter of opinion and it wasn't possible for me to like ALL the entries, huh very interesting. Most of those are very appropriate for the Skin a Trik contest, which had a surprisingly similar main theme as this contest, I'd be interested to see if those who judged that contest would have made more... applicable choices for this one as well...

This is mine
:thumb170292668:
It may not look like I put a lot of time into mine because I just got photoshop recently and I was getting used to it(so don't criticize me)... its not the best design but it sure beats the hell outta some of these cars...
... & If these "semifinalists" get compensation for their designs...then I sure as hell would be mad because I can use the money for college expenses!

P.S. Whoever picked these designs is a dick! ...yea I said it..dick!
