66: Non-fiction Auto

Posted on Apr 1, 2019 by in Magnet Limit, No Limit

A dream without ambition is like a car without gas… you’re not going anywhere. – Sean Hampton

The April 2019 contest is an impressionism contest to create a non-fictional passenger vehicle out of 5mm magnet spheres. You do not have to use Zen Magnets, so throw some color into your impressionist build if you like. You choose the vehicle, be it Tesla Semi,  a Ford F-150, a Toyota Camry, or whatever truck or SUV. Base it off of something that actually exists on the roads or as a prototype.  Then photograph it beautifully.


Summary of requirements:

  • Must be constructed entirely of 5mm magnet spheres
  • No limit to number of magnets used
  • 1 submission per person
  • No collages or photo-manipulation beyond basic color levels and contrast.
  • Deadline: 4/30/2019


As usual, the judges will be your peers. Pay attention to resolution, focus, lighting as framing. Use not your bright reflective flash, but instead a self timer and a tripod (or stand.) Sharp, high resolution pictures are preferred. $300 in prizes is up for grabs and distribution will depend on participation. There will be at least six winners. Prizes will be announced with judging. Everything you submit goes into the public domain. Most importantly, have fun! Submission deadline is April 30th, 2019.

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