This contest is about capturing the spirit of the NeoVictoria estate for a calendar. The only criteria are: 1. Image is related to our roleplay story in some way, its fine to use avatar characters and props or to only shoot landscapes. Please read the Steampunk Travelogue on NeoVictoria if you're unfamiliar with the Neo'verse: http://www.steampunktribune.com/2011/10/steampunk-travelogue-neo-victoira.html. 2. It’s fine to use photo-enhancing software like Photoshop or GIMP, but don't add any words or borders to the photo. 3. The shot must be captured on the Machinima SIM or the NeoVictoria SIM.
