Dust 1947 – Gorilla Painting Contest and Customization

The “Dust 1947 – Gorilla Painting Contest and Customization” is a home painting competition (online) organized by Ammo Drop in collaboration with Dust Studio, where the works will be documented through photos and posted by the participants or by their only delegate appointed for themselves. The photos must be posted in the Official group: Dust 1947 Italia OFFICIAL, specifically creating an album with the name of your work. At least 4 WIP photos (work in progress) and 4 photos of the final work taken from multiple sides are required. If there are problems to create your own album in the group, just contact the group administrators who will help you in the operation.

The event is designed given the time of difficulty all over the world and in Italy, to be able to give the Dust community some fun. A healthy and sporty competition in which the fun of painting your own model is the basis of everything.

Registration is free and with a limited number of 20 participants.

A miniature Gorilla Kampfaffen Dust to be painted and a sticker of the contest will be sent free of charge. The sticker must appear together with the miniature in the photos posted in order to validate (without not being valid for the purposes of the competition).

The competition is divided into two levels of painting: Macaco (Basic) and Gorilla (Master). The 20 participants at the time of registration must indicate at what level their work will belong. If the level of painting of the work during the competition is considered by the jury to be different from the one entered, the judges have the freedom to change and move the level of registration, subsequently communicating it to the painter.

Changes are clearly encouraged in this contest.
