Photochop Challenge 9 RESULTS: BMW M3

Photochop Challenge 9 Bavarian Autosport BMW M3

Jul 8, 2010

Welcome to the results of our ninth Photochop Challenge based on the BMW M3. This time, it was in collaboration with BMW specialists Bavarian Autosport and there was a Bluetooth phone kit for the entry we liked best. For those who don't know, photochop is the term given to a car that's been modified using software such as Photoshop. It can be used to add carbon spoilers, different wheel, stickers or new backgrounds to a photo, as seen here.

So we've been running a series of Challenges over the past few years to encourage everybody to explore their artistic side with a photo we provide. In this instance, there were also product logos from BavAuto to incorporate, just to make it more demanding. Once again, we were delighted to have students from Quartz Hill High School in California participate. As for our top entry, we selected the widebody racer by Anthony Rodriguez to receive the Bluetooth kit. We loved the car's muscularity and felt it was the best use of the various logos.

This is the fourth Challenge Anthony has entered. He's an IT manager and a semi-pro graphic designer/photographer in the process of establishing GrimDigital.com From his Chop you can tell he's a car enthusiast; he owns a '95 GTI VR6 turbo that he built (and broke!) himself. He also has a stock '04 Passat V6 4Motion wagon for daily duties. He based his widebody on the M3 GTR racecar, adding a Vorsteiner hood, M3 GTS rear wing, side exit exhaust and BBS LMs. Inside, there are race seats, harnesses and a rollcage.

Other contenders for top honors were Cesar Graulau, Matt Wirtz and Martin Kaminski, who put in some great work. We were also pleased to see lowrider, rally, offroad, pickup and hotrod variants. The Bentley front-end conversion was also intriguing.

Several of the entries here are from Quartz Hill School, including Brandon Franceschi, Vince Doll and Jesse Jaramillo - all 65 of their entries can be seen online here.

We must also give special mention to Nuno Carneiro for his persistence and creativity, entering nine different Chops and having three shown here.

To everybody who entered and those who wish they did, look out for the Photochop Challenge 10 in the next issue of eurotuner magazine (September 2010).
