Here’s your opportunity to show us your photochop skills with a team livery and modifications for a Bavarian Autosport BMW M3.
Elsewhere in this issue we printed the top entries from our eighth Photochop Challenge to create your personal vision for the Audi R8. This time, we’re giving you a photo of the BMW M3 Coupe to manipulate as you wish.
The idea is to create something as stylish as possible incorporating the attached logos from Bavarian Autosport.
Obviously, we’d love to see some widebody conversions, and somebody usually attempts an old skool version. You can even create a wagon of a fastback, whatever you like. All we ask is that your entry incorporate the logos - either as racecar graphics across the whole car, or as more discreet sponsor graphics. The choice is yours, but perhaps something along the lines of an ALMS racecar might look cool?
You can change the color, add wheels, spoilers, widebody, seats, lights or stickers, even change the background. It’s entirely up to you. The only limit is your imagination. So don’t be afraid to have a go. There’s always a photochop virgin who makes it into the top ten, proving you don’t need years of experience to have a go.
All we ask is that you base your work on the photo and logos we’ve provided here. Because we like to reward effort, Bavarian Autosport has kindly offered to present this universal, wireless bluetooth kit to the photochop entry selected by Derek Jenkins (head of design at Mazda NA and previously at VWoA).
The bluetooth kit is available from bavauto.com It has caller ID and provides hands-free cellphone use in your car. The display shows the incoming number, volume, battery level and call status. There’s also a slide-out microphone to eliminates echo and background noise for clearer conversations. It has a built-in rechargeable battery with up to 13 hours talk time and 220 hours of standby. A sunvisor bracket allows easy mounting and it can connect four phones simultaneously. It comes with privacy headphones, a USB charger with 12-volt adapter and has a $100 value.
Although we give this away to our favorite entry, we have to point out for legal reasons, this isn’t a competition. It’s a challenge, and just for fun.
Get your entries to us by 3/27/10 - that gives you nine weeks after this issue goes on sale to create something sensational. But don’t leave it to the last minute.
You can email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org but please ensure your images are a minimum of 500Kb at 300dpi, or we won’t be able to print them. However, they can’t be more than 2Mb files either. If they exceed this limit, please copy them to a CD and mail it to us at Photochop, eurotuner magazine, 831 S Douglas St, El Segundo, CA 90245.
We also require extra information along with your photochop image. Please ensure we have your full name, city you live in and a list of the mods you’ve carried out to the M3 - this is very important if you’re in the top ten.
When emailing us, please put your name as the subject of the email (ie, Andrew Thorn M3 Photochop) and do the same for the name of your jpeg image (ie, andrewthornM3.jpg). This will help us identify your image and collate your details when it comes time to select the shortlist for publication.
Remember, this Photochop Challenge is just for fun, so there are none of the usual competition rules. You can be a professional or amateur - you can have a go with pen and paper if technology escapes you, and you can enter more than once. All entries will appear online, with our favorites being printed in a future issue. However, your entry will be taken as permission to reproduce your artwork in the magazine, online and in other media. So have a go and we look forward to seeing your artwork.
Here are the logos for you to incorporate into your artwork:
