Yes, feel free to put lights and annotations but most importantly, don't forget a good description! Judges love to read about your process!
No, it's just all in good fun :) there is no theme, so feel free to scan and submit your favourite subject!
For fun :) It all started when Italy did not qualify for the World Cup back in 2018 and we kept the tradition ever since, plus it is helpful to run the contest in groups to make it more interesting. That said, the contest is not soccer themed and you can reconstruct your favourite subject. It's just a fun way to drive the contest appearance.
If you do not see your country, it means that somebody else was faster than you and grabbed it already. You can play: this contest is all in good fun, just pick one country you like :)
They are just for fun - you do not need to be in the country you pick, nor you need to scan anything from that specific country. Countries are just a vanity fun stuff we use to split you in groups.
The selection of your country will be available at the moment of your first submission. Go make your 3D model before someone else gets your favourite country!
Unfortunately no, as we will need your address in case you win, in order to ship you the prize. But, you can ask your parents to sign up and submit the scan at their name, if they are fine with it :)
Unfortunately no, we want the contest to be the same for everyone. But if you win, you can choose to gift your prize to some other contestant if you wish!
