Announcing the PhotoView 360 Beta 2010 Rendering Contest


Check it out—if you’re currently a SolidWorks 2010 subscription service customer, you’re cordially invited to participate in our PhotoView 360
2010 Beta Rendering Contest*. Three winners will be chosen each week, and
all winning images will be qualified for the <echo voice> Grand Prize </echo voice>.


Here’s how you can participate.


  1. Once you’ve read the Official
    Contest Rules
    , create a new Beta Service Request with the following text in the summary: “PV360 Beta Rendering Contest.” This will identify it as a contest entry.
  2. Attach your image and a completed Authorization
    and Approval Statement
    to the Service Request. You can attach them to the
    SR individually, or combine them in a .zip or .rar file. The important
    thing is that the image and authorization are submitted together. Also,
    don’t forget to include a two to three word title for your image, as well as a
    short description.
  3. Submit your entry SR by 4:59 PM EDT each Friday, from now until the end of
    the beta period. Winners will be determined and announced on or around the Monday following
    the Friday deadline. Any submissions made after 4:59 PM EST will be judged in
    the following week’s contest.
  4. At our discretion, submitted images will be posted to

Winners will be contacted individually, and their images will be highlighted
on the SolidWorks Gallery website.

There will be three winners per week and all winning images will be qualified
for the Grand Prize. After the weekly contests have ended, the judges
will choose two Grand Prize winners from the list of weekly winners. You can see the prizes by clicking here. I see an iPod in there, as well as messenger bags like the one I use every day.

If you’re not a SolidWorks 2010 beta tester, it’s not too late to sign up. Just go here and get started.

* Certain restrictions apply. Check contest rules for eligibility details.
