Perhaps if you change this rule to a guideline to ask people to upload the most materials they can.
I was just thinking this myself., The requirement that you must upload your scene plus
all materials pretty much rules out using purchased textures or objects. It means that everything must
be original works (textureing and modelling). Even a lot of freebee images and objects have restrictions on distribution, and the contest requirements would violate these rules.
Sorry guys, you'll have to count me out. I was actually considering submitting something, but I'm not about to create a whole new texture library from scratch, and I will not
violate any copyright agreements.
I honestly have never heard of a rendering
contest where all of the original scenes and textures have to be provided to the judges. Most unusual........
