    The 1st Annual Beautify Contest will take place here on this forum from 1st to 30th April!

    A $200 prize will be granted to the winner plus a free voucher for any of our assets to the rest of finalists.


    Rules:

    1) From 1-20 April (til 23:59h CET), post your screenshots or video clips on the contest thread. Please keep this thread for discussions or comments.
    2) Each participant should post a single message per project with all the screenshots or video clips.
    3) The screenshots or videoclips must showcase a project created with Unity and be using Beautify image effect.
    4) All forum users can click on "Like" to show their support.
    5) On April 21, the 3 screenshots/videoclips with more "likes" will be selected as finalists plus 2 other hand-picked submissions for a total of 5 finalists.
    6) To decide the winner for this competition, a poll will be enabled on April 21 with the 5 finalists.
    7) On April 30, the most voted project in the poll will receive $200 USD payable through PayPal (no other payment method allowed). If the winner can't accept PayPal payments he/she may opt to receive a similar amount in free vouchers for our assets.
    8) The rest of finalists will receive a free voucher for any of our assets.
    9) To prevent any kind of "cheating" you may be requested to send a screenshot of your Unity Editor showing Beautify attached to your camera.

    This is an excellent opportunity to get some reward for your hard work and also a way to say thank you for using Beautify in your projects.

    Please keep this thread on topic. For any question related to Beautify image effect itself, use the asset thread.

    Thanks for joining the competition and good luck to everyone!

    Please wait until April 1 before posting so every participant gets the same timeframe for receiving likes. Thank you.

    Given that Beautify is a paid asset, and required for the contest, this sounds like it could be considered a lottery, and therefore illegal, at least in the US.

    How could it be considered a lottery? It's not random. People already have the asset so it's not gambling either. It's a competition. Does this make every photoshop, blender, daz competition a lottery too? :S

    Prepare your best shots or clips! The contest starts April 1, 15.00h CET. Only a few days left :)

    To keep things tidy a dedicated thread (not this one) will be enabled for submissions and voting only. This thread will also be updated with the link so you can start posting when the contest begins.

    Good luck to everyone and enjoy!!

    @virtueone thanks for participating! And don't worry, if you win you will get a similar amount in free vouchers of your choice (rounding up so it can result even in a greater value!).

    Definitely taking part in this, as Beautify has become a staple in every single project of mine.
    Excellent plugin, and check my entry to see the effect it really has.

    Also, thanks for having this competition.

    Thanks @virtueone @Meltdown @TheBullet @rrhain @OnklPeta @HelixNGC7293 and @asimov99 for posting early on the contest thread. Much appreciated!

    Please don't hesitate to include any description, comment, link to your game/website when submitting your project to the contest thread. People will want to learn more about it.

    I love the intro videos of some of you guys! Thanks for sharing your background.

    Good luck!

    Seems that posting the contest thread on the Asset Store board was not optimal since that board has lot of activity and it quickly gets buried. It's been announced on the asset page itself and on social media but yes, it should attract more likes!
