Welcome to the Forza Motorsport 6 Livery Contest!


*Please read the rules. There has been a Rule update, please take note of it.
Forza Motorsport 6 uses curated content as the means by which paints are shown to players when they choose to apply a new paint to their car when using the "Find Designs" tile, or when they purchase a new car from the "Find A Car" tile. The best way to get recognized in the community is to participate in our contests. Winners of the livery contests will be Featured Items which means that the paint will be shown to a much wider player audience which will hopefully boost your downloads and uses and thus, payouts from the paint. (If the paint is yours or you already own the paint, you will not see your own paint displayed to yourself.)

Please make sure your post follows the Rules of the Contest.

Prizes
o There are no placements for Winners. All paints selected will be considered winners and be given the stated prize as well as be featured. If you get featured, you are a considered a winner. The number of winners will depend on what gets entered, how many cars we want to feature, how many entries there are, and the quality of work. We are not going to specify a specific number of cars we are going to choose.
o All winners will be gifted the stated prize that is predetermined by us.

Prize
500,000 credits

Cars Eligible to use to display your paints:
Any in game car is eligible.

Rules of the Contest
o The design must belong to you and be your creation. Posting someone else's work is not allowed!

o Entrants can enter both Race and Fantasy but the submissions must be in different posts and you must put the proper description in game. (One entry per category per person per week, please.)

o Please keep entries to one per category per week.

o We suggest that if your design has won in a previous contest, you do not re-enter the same design again unless new elements have been added to actually change the design or give it a new look.

o When posting here include your Gamer Tag, the car you painted your design on, the filename of your paint, and whether you want your paint judged as a fantasy or race paint.

o Entry Post Example:
Forza Player GT
2009 Ford Focus RS
Forza Paint 123
Fantasy Paint

o You do have to post your entry in this thread.

o You should “Share” your paint IN GAME if you want your winning item featured. You must put “Fantasy18” or “Race18” in the description of your livery when you share your design. (All one word for the description).[/b] Adding the description to your shared entry helps us find your entry so it can be featured, if you wish your winning entry to be featured. It also helps others find your entry if you want more downloads. When you press “share” on your design, the description goes in the section marked “description”. You will need to type it in.

o To qualify for entry into the weekly contest, you need to post your paint photos in this thread. You may post up to 3 photos of your paint.

o This thread will be closed the morning of January 20, 2016 and judging will begin. Please have your entries in by this time.

Key words (Description Words):
Fantasy18
Race18
___________________________________________________________________________

If you're painting to win contests then you're doing it for the wrong reasons. I've had many of my best designs not win on occasions, with that said the judging has been questionable at times.

I entered a megan fox in a bikini portrait last week, n got no love lol. Haven't had an answer back yet on if it was my photo format or design content. No big deal to me, it's all in fun. I could go without painting for the next 2 months n enter every week if i wanted to. I produce 3 or 4 car designs a week. I never know what to enter. Wanna see dora the explorer next week? Lol

I know this probably isn't the right place but I thought maybe it would be somewhere where it would get noticed better. To whomever does the website I've noticed that the Audi R15++ in the Forza 6 cars spot has a picture of an Audi R8 Le Mans car. I thought I'd just highlight this blooper to let you guys know. I like what you're doing with it so this isn't a rant, just a heads up

Maybe it's because it was a Meagan Fox bikini portrait in a game that's played by children. That might have something to do with it.

I don't know what criteria they have for winning designs (other than "this looks good and well-made") but the following will definitely exclude you from a potential win:

  • Alcohol logos (Martini etc.).
  • Tobacco logos (Marlboro etc.)
  • Gambling logos (Pokerstars etc.)
  • Anything that's not suitable for people of all ages.

Im waiting to hear an answer from a turn 10 mod. I was told bikini girls are fine. Im pretty sure i've seen winners with alcohol logos too. If it was an unsuitable image, im sure they would've removed it from the forums, and my hard drive by now. It's more like nudity, illegal drug use, and promoting underage drinking. Im pretty sure it was actually my picture format. My tom coronel dhl chevy didn't get anywhere either, and it was actually approved by tom coronel himself so i know it was accurate lol.

+ i spoke to a mod about the megan fox design before i did it. He recommended against at 1st. Once i sent screenshots over he said it should be fine. Im not trying to pull another jessica alba fiasco, n get suspended for 2 weeks like back in the day lol. I just wanna know if the lazy 3 in 1 photos got me disqualified, cuz i hate posting pics with my phone

There's a certain disconnect / grey area with what category to put paints in. Seen many submissions in Fantasy contests being entered that are really obviously race paints.
Review which category you are entering in. Not sure then ask other painters which one they'd put it in!

@ Controversial - A wild guess might be that your choice of wording ("cherry bomb") might be interpreted as a potential reference to an explosive carrying the same name and became illegal in USA, Canada and a few other countries as being defined as an explosive device. - PS. I for one really liked your design, controversial or not. LOL

I didn't even think of that one lol! I'm all about furthing my art skills, and i've been trying to progress in this editor. Crazy slap you in the face imagery is what im going for. However, i'm trying to abide by the rules, and follow the code of conduct. The livery has not been removed, and i do understand there would be a grey area for contests. That car arlready gets downloaded like it has won. I can't imagine if they showed it to a larger range. It would probably hog all the downloads lol. I still haven't received any reply on the photo format tho.

This is the 3 in 1 pic i entered last week, trying to not take a lot of space in the forums (like im doing now) and make it quick n covienient for myself. Just wondering, because I'm trying to be professional, and also give the layout they would prefer.



Notice the forza logos arent showing. After i thought about it it seems like a no no.

Sometimes I win, sometimes I loose. That's the concept of the events and that's perfectly fine.

What's bothering me is that you need a turn 10 recommandations to get downloads. It's very bad system.
But also if you really want a recommandations, just paint 2 lines, 1 square and 1 circle and work for turn 10 ! Straight 5 stars and recommandation :)
Sometimes I've spend more time on a single logo than a turn 10 painter for 50 cars.

Anyways, now I paint for fun and if I have a car ready, I'll just give a shot at the contest.
