Lexus IS Design Contest

Fri Jul 12, 2013, 6:47 PM

Submission Due In


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.

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
Potential as a actual executable design (10-week build time, no changes to engine, transmission or vehicle frame. Vehicle must be drivable.)

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!

I wish this wasn't for 18 years and older. I JUST turned 17. Oh well! I wish everyone who enters great luck!
Entry here, just to make sure it is seen…
I don't see my submission in the entries. Did it even get entered?
Just enter my concept. I hope you all like it.

How do i make sure it was submitted right?
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?
