Not to discredit the winners, BUT... I live in Miami... and have been to Art Basel every year for the past 10 years and would really have to ask if any of the judges been to either Miami or Art Basel? Or if the person running the contest has... I hope you are not promoting the car based on the art. Art Basel likes to think of themselves as a "prestigious clique of intelligence and obscurity" and I've seen a lot of art pieces GOOD art pieces be torn down.

So disappointing I did not get to enter this contest. Instead I had to house sit for $150 and was not able to complete my work. These submissions are mediocre compared to what I would have produced, it's a shame.

So far, yet so close. We got owned by the replaced semi-finalists (lol). Never thought any one of these were a winner, but congratulations to them. The best contestants won after all. :-) I've uploaded the large template for my 'Be the Aquarium' entry for your pleasure.

Hmm. This may come across as a sore loser, but thinking about it, I wouldn't even be surprised if the first place was a fix. Did the Fiat company really have any intention of funding for travel tickets from outside of the US? The first prize winner has been a Deviant user for only a month; has no comments on his arts, no wall comments before the winning announcement, and only displaying his first name. What questions me the most is, how did three replaced semi-finalists out-win the first semi-finalists? Why weren't they chosen in the first place? Where is Columbo when we need him?

Oh no. I'm a real dude here. No fix. I'm sorry you feel that way. I joined Deviant Art a month ago to enter the Lexus contest that I lost. I thought I would be a shoe in since I designed the graphics on the Diamond Lighting/A'PEXi car that competes in Formula Drift which so happens to be a Lexus SC430. I didn't get in the Semi-Finals on that one. For that contest, I didn't read everything and thought they wanted a wrap. Boy was I wrong. So for this contest I read the rules and what they wanted over and over again. And also, maybe you don't remember it correctly, but I was an original Semi-Finalist.

The first two paragraphs read:

The FIAT® 500L boasts a nearly 360 degree panoramic view which makes for the perfect canvas to showcase your imagination. Looking at the car from the outside, give us a glimpse of what you would expect to see going on inside the FIAT 500® rockin' at Art Basel, Miami.


Use the template to create a window wrap for the 500L - perhaps using Tromp L'oeil or, if you like, just pure fantasy. The call is yours and the possibilities are endless...


This is cut and pasted from the original article. You can go look at it for yourself if you don't believe this as well.


I did what I can to make each window correspond to each other for a full 360 degree view. They did state "or, if you like, just pure fantasy" but BEFORE that it reads, "perhaps using Tromp L'oeil". Now you didn't have to use it, but I thought I'll go with their first suggestion. So that's why I did that style as well. I really wanted to draw models in the car like all the commercials that Fiat runs on TV, but I decided to use kids so that I can show more of the car's interior and utilize the space provided to showcase more Tromp L'oeil. Adults would have covered more of the window and I feel I would lose the depth I was looking to accomplish.


Feel free to ask me anything else if you still feel the same. It's one thing to judge my art and as you can see on the comments posted here, not everyone liked my design. But that's art, and everyone has their opinion. I didn't comment on the posts that bad mouth my design but although it hurts, everyone has their opinion and I respect that and took it as constructive criticism (even the ones that are simply insults) but it's upsetting being labeled a fake or even worse a cheater.

As an administrator here at deviantART, I am very pleased that you joined dA to enter the contests.  I expect you will also stay around.  But I am particularly pleased to see that you have responded to these comments with intelligence and, I must say, a great deal of patience and elegance. The thought that went into your entry paid off and your explanation of your process will be very helpful to participants in future contests - - read the rules and understand the challenge.  Those are the first steps, always.

The first time I saw 1st place I was like, "NO!"

But then.. after I kept looking at it.. it grew on me. Not only that, it was the thing that FIAT was looking for:

"we asked you to give us a glimpse of what you would expect to see going on inside the FIAT® 500L"

It's a nice twist, creative, you get the concept, and it's family friendly. :)

hehe.. i guess mine is a bit PG-13.. but.. congratulations

Third place is the best. 1st place is horrible, it doesn't suit the car at all. There were definitely way better submissions than the ones chosen to be winners.

You know, just calling it out right 'horrible' could hurt the person's feelings. As well as that, the judges chose them because they thought that THEY looked the best. Sure, you can have your own judgement, but be aware of those who you could be insulting.
