Hey guys, hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend! It's finally June, and that means it's time to kick off the summer! The sun is out and shining, and we couldn't be more excited to kick off this exciting season with some new projects coming soon - but you'll find out more about those projects at a later time... For now, let's go with our theme for this week's contest: Summertime. Your challenge is to create an effect that involves ANY items you can find at (or take to) the beach. Packing some drinks to take to the beach? You can create an effect with those cans/bottles. Find some cool shells while walking on the sand? Create something new with them. Accidentally tear your swim trunks? Restore the tear and make it good as new. Have an idea for a big illusion with beach chairs and towels? Go for it! ANYTHING you can find at the beach or is appropriate to take to the beach is fair game for this week's contest. Judging criteria will be as follows: we are looking for creativity, originality, and execution. Make it unique, make it look as smooth and polished as you can. We don't want to see any flashes! Film and upload your performance of your effect to either YouTube, Instagram, or Vimeo, and post the link to your public video in response to THIS forum thread by no later than tomorrow, Sunday, June 4th at 11:00pm EST. Once time is up we will look through all submissions and decide on a winner based on the criteria listed above. What can you win? 1,000 Elite Points, a deck of Gold Monarchs, and your choice of ANY in-stock theory11 short sleeve tee (Artisan, Monarch, Medallion, or Contraband), shipped on the house, anywhere in the world. Good luck to everyone - let's kick off summer the right way!
