58: Unlimited Zen Dinosaurs

Posted on Aug 6, 2018 by in No Limit

Life, uh, finds a way. – Dr. Ian Malcom

The August 2018 contest is to create a 3D dinosaur of your choice using Zen Magnets. From our own experience dinosaurs are not the easiest to replicate in magnet form, especially bipedal ones, which is why there is no limit to the number of magnets.


We are looking for full forms, no stand alone heads/skulls, though the head is probably the best place to start. Be able to name the species, no made up dinosaurs! There are over 700 identified and named dinosaurs, so plenty to choose from. Although there is no limit to the number of magnets, try to only use as many as necessary. More magnets does not mean a better sculpture.


Summary of Requirements:

  • No limit on number of magnet spheres
  • Must be made entirely of Only Zen Magnets
  • Must be a 3D sculpture
  • Name of dinosaur
  • Deadline: 8/31/2018 in your time zone
  • 1 Submission per person

As usual, the judges will be your peers. Pay attention to resolution, focus, lighting and framing. Use not your bright reflective flash, but instead of a self timer and a tripod (or stand.) Sharp, high resolution pictures are preferred. There will be at least FIVE winners, and the prize for first place will be $100 Zen Credit. Everything you submit goes into the public domain.

Of course, the first and foremost requirement, is that you have fun!
