Lexus IS Design Contest

Fri Jul 12, 2013, 6:47 PM

Submission Due In

00:00:00

Submission Deadline: August 12, 2013

At 11:59 PM, PT - Los Angeles Time.

Show us your vision of the ultimate 2014 Lexus IS. You could see it come to life in the form of an actual modified IS, and be there in Las Vegas for the unveiling.

The all-new IS is built to stand apart. The SEMA Show is where automobile manufacturers and accessory makers create attention-grabbing vehicles to show off their latest products.

Your challenge is to make the all-new IS steal the show.

Use your favorite digital tools. Use pencil and paper. Use anything in between to show us how you would customize the exterior of the 2014 IS to make it the center of attention.

Watch the video above and explore the asset pack of 2014 Lexus IS images for inspiration.
Create your vision using your favorite drawing tool with or without the assets provided. Show us how you would make an actual 2014 IS stand out. (It's not a wrap. It's not a poster. Lexus and VIP AutoSalon will modify an actual IS based on the winning entry.)
Read the official rules and ensure your entry includes a minimum of two views and a maximum of four views of the exterior of the vehicle on a single JPG or PNG file no longer than 8,000 pixels in its longest dimension.
*Read eligibility requirements here. No substitute prize for the lease will be available.

Show us your design and vision for a custom exterior treatment and exterior modification of a 2014 Lexus IS.

Your entry to qualify must be no larger than 8,000 pixels in its maximum length, consist of no more than 4 and at least 2 exterior views of the Lexus IS in a single JPG or PNG file.

You may use the materials provided in the Asset pack but may not use as a basis of the Entry photographs of the Lexus IS taken by others. No third party stock permitted. Licensed brushes and textures are permitted.

To create a level base for entries, no licensed 3rd Party wire frames may be used as the basis for an Entry.

Your Entry must be your own original work and may not include logo, trademarks, characters or any other copyrighted materials owned by third parties.

You may submit more than one entry.

Other restrictions and requirements apply. Please Read the Official Rules carefully and by submitting to the Contest you will confirm your agreement to be bound by them.

25 Semi-Finalists will be chosen by full-time deviantART staff.

The three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes representatives from Lexus North America, MotorTrend, VIP Auto Salon and Calty Design Research, Inc.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

True to the essence of the design for the 2014 IS
Consistent with the image of the Lexus brand
Originality
Potential as a actual executable design (10-week build time, no changes to engine, transmission or vehicle frame. Vehicle must be drivable.)

Qualification for the lease is not a condition for winning the contest. If first place prize winner doesn't qualify for the lease, no substitute for this prize will be provided.




DeviantART and Lexus are challenging you to show us your vision of the ultimate 2014 Lexus IS. You could see it come to life in the form of an actual modified IS, and be there in Las Vegas for the unveiling! Get your tools ready and design a Lexus IS that will steal the show!

It depends on the contest, we try and host as many international contests as possible but it's unfortunately up to the sponsor.  It will state in the contest launch article if it's US only or International :)

Hey even though the time is up I think you could still modify your submission (may be wrong)
I would take the time to combine mod-pao.deviantart.com/art/Whi… and mod-pao.deviantart.com/art/Whi… to satisfy the two image minimum of the contest.

I just hate to see you disqualified on a technicality hope that helps best of luck! ^_^

Maybe because of the flight to Las Vegas? They probably don't like to pay for international flights haha.

Looks like Lexus corrected the timer. 
Anyway, guys, check out my entry! I wanted to keep a lot of it looking like Lexus so it isn't the craziest design.
Saw other people posting about their car so... why not?
Good luck everyone!

The poster says the deadline is Aug 12, 11:59pm, and the local date/time atm in LA is Aug 11 10:16pm which means there is 1 day, 1hr and Approximately 45 mins. However the timer above shows a whole day less in the time due to submit your work. it says the time is up in 1 hr 45 mins - I just came across this competition and wanna still give it a good shot. But less than 2 hours is not enough. which one is it? Aug 12 11:59pm or Aug11 11:59pm - can someone or the authorities on this one please specify?
