The Winners & Prizes For Oculus PhotoCrop Contest!


First, we want to thank everyone for their patience in waiting for the MTBS Oculus Rift Photocrop contest. We arranged a Novint Falcon as a top prize, but there were delays in shipping because our company contacts changed.

That was resolved, but with all the fine artwork shared in the contest, it seemed wasteful to just have ONE prize. Seriously!

Audiofly AF33 Headphones
So we secured six pairs of AF33 Audiofly headphones, and each pair has a retail value of about $40 a piece.

The contest was judged independently by MTBS. We gave the highest preference to submissions that seemed the most complex and imaginative to do. While everyone's work was fun to watch, it's clear that some submissions were a lot more time consuming than others.

So here we go!
Fellowship of The Rift
The first prize, The Novint Falcon, goes to Mindless. He had multiple popular entries, and our favorite was "The Fellowship of the Rift".

It Cannot Come Soon Enough
The second prize, a pair of AF33 Audiofly headphones, goes to Boll for...his patience!

The Creation of VR
Omarzuqo gets third prize for The Creation of VR.

The First Oculus
Fireslayer26 gets Audiofly headphones for "The First Oculus".

Titanic VRThe fifth prize, Audiofly headphones, goes to TheHolyChicken for Titanic VR. Nicely done!

Destiny, Baby Oculus
The sixth prize goes to Coasterpro for Destiny, or "Baby Oculus". Audiofly headphones are headed your way!

I Can't Handle the Truth!
Zalo can't handle the truth! He's getting headphones too!

WAIT.  We can't just stop here...can we??!?  I think not.  We have two more prizes to give away.  Radeon Ramdisk is advanced ramdisk software that will work on both AMD and Intel platforms.  It's valued at almost $20 a copy, and we have two keys to give away!

The winners are:

Mad VR Science!
We've got some mad science by Cathodoluminescence, and...

Stick it up, VR Grandma!VR Grandma by kh3naz!

Well, that's it folks!  We're tapped out!  Feel free to spread the images around, but be sure to credit your MTBS source!  Great stuff, everyone!  Even Mike Abrash from Valve thought this contest was "fun and brilliant", and I know he too was looking forward to seeing the winner!

Please PM Neil in the forums to claim your prize.  Please send your real name, address, email, and phone number so arrangements can be made.  Congratulations again!

Last but not least, we are working on the MTBS site this weekend.  Based on some input from Palmer Luckey and our forum members, we want to get some ideas off the ground here.  We'll keep you posted!
