Autodesk Issues Challenge to 3D Designers

San Rafael, Calif. - Autodesk Inc. has launched General Shadowfinger’s Benign Design Contest in 3D, a design competition to support the online video series, The TeknoChronicles of Z.
The arch enemy in The TeknoChronicles of Z, General Shadowfinger, needs a new place to conduct business. Designers are asked to create an office and all of its contents for the General using the new free-form design tools in AutoCAD 2010 in which the selected winner will have their design appear prominently in a future episode, receive a trip for two to San Francisco, a Canon digital camera, and a 3D printed model of the winning design featured in the Autodesk Gallery . The grand-prize winner will also get the option of starring in the final TeknoChronicles of Z episode.

All entries must be received by midnight on June 30, 2009. The winners will be determined by member voting on the AutoCAD Exchange. Voting will be open from July 1 through July 15, 2009 and will be announced on July 28, 2009. The contest is open to residents of the US.

Additional details including directions for submissions can be found on the AutoCAD Exchange http://autocad.autodesk.com/.
