This wasn't a planned contest, so we had to work quickly.  Normally, we give away games, 3D drivers, and 3D displays - but that didn't seem appropriate in this case.  No, we needed something very different!

The grand prize for the Oculus Rift PhotoCrop contest is...

The next step is to find some cool judges for the contest...but who? Who shall it be? Hmmmmmmmmm...
This sounds intriguing... the Oculus team, perhaps? :D That would be most fitting!

What if the community votes? Would people be honest enough for that to work?

I would personally prefer impartial judges, the potential for cheating by registering votes through other accounts is just to great to ignore. Why over shadow the award with suspicions like that. Besides if the judge(s) is someone from oculus or one of the big game companies, that would be cool to know you have their seal of approval.

Btw, what counts as a clear indication of the submitter? I'm just uploading under my name, it needs to be clearer?

I assumed Neil would be the judge.

Dycus already has 4 entries! And Palmer is the target of half the entries. So I don't think Oculus should be the judge.

BTW, there's another thread here which should be included in the contest: http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=15466

I suppose voting could be restricted to users that had accounts prior to the beginning of the contest?
