SBAC's $25MIL Hot Wheels Livery Contest -- Deadline Friday, May 12th

While I don’t consider myself among the iconic (read this as above legendary) painters here, I’m proud to have finally achieved Legendary status a few months back. I couldn’t have done it without the support and encouragement from the community here. So I want to give something back and this is the best way I can think of.

Work in Progress

From now through Friday, May 12th, I’m running a Hot Wheels themed livery contest. Guidelines are as follows:

  • This contest will be open to all skill levels except for my fellow Legends. If Legends want to show off their work, great, but they will not be eligible for voting. I ask that the Legends please tag the beginning of their post NON-COMP. I want this contest to help out and encourage, perhaps bring attention to those who have not achieved that last star.

  • The livery must be based on an actual Hot Wheels car. Photos (either personally-taken or found elsewhere online) will be required for comparison. I highly recommend personally-taken photos.

  • One entry per person. The design must be your own work.

  • The livery must be new, not imported from earlier Forza games.

  • Voting will be held at the end of the contest by the community.

  • 1 winner per status level (1 Freelance, 1 Amateur, 1 Semi-Pro, 1 Pro, 1 Elite). Each winner will receive ~$5 million in game credits by way of me buying out one of their unwanted HE cars in the auction house. Depending on participation, I may expand the winnings in smaller amounts to 2nd and possibly 3rd place entries in each group. Details to be determined and made public at a later date.

To enter, each participant is asked to post the following:

  • Gamertag
  • Current painter status
  • Vehicle Year / Make / Model (as found in game)
  • (1 to 2) pictures of the actual Hot Wheels toy
  • (3) in-game photos of their finished work
    Designs should be shared with the description “SBACHotWheels” for the community to have access for evaluation & voting.

Deadline for submission is 11PM Eastern US time on Friday, May 12th.
