Iron Man in Second Life
Iron Man takes to the skies over Silverscreen
From the press release:
Paramount Pictures International (PPI) and Marvel Studios announce a competition inviting residents of the online community Second Life to create jaw-dropping Iron Man fan art for the chance to win a top prize of L$100,000 (US $400).
Competition entries can take the form of still artwork or moving image – the only limitation is that each entry must make use of an official Second Life avatar created to promote the hugely-anticipated worldwide release of IRON MAN on Friday 2nd May.
The avatar is freely available to any of the Second Life’s 13 million residents, bringing Iron Man to life for his fans by enabling them to take to the virtual skies, piloting his suit and experiencing his powers for themselves.
The avatar can be collected from Silverscreen island in Second Life. Visit Silverscreen by following this link – http://slurl.com/secondlife/Silverscreen/195/106/29/ – and signing into your Second Life viewer.
Entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 7.00 PM PST on Wednesday 7th May. Finalists will be announced on the Silverscreen blog at www.theppc.com/silverscreen the following day.
The winner will be announced following an open judging session in Silverscreen at 10.00 AM PST on
Friday 9th May. The winner will receive L$100,000 and the runner-up will receive L$25,000.
All the finalists will see their work displayed and open to the public in Silverscreen throughout May. PPI will also be unveiling a machinima promo commissioned to show the avatar in action, created by multimedia artist and video director Annie Ok.
The competition winner will be announced on Friday 9th May on PPC’s Silverscreen blog: http://www.theppc.com/silverscreen/
