Rules:

 

  1. This contest is to see what you can do with a prosthetic makeup using Rubber Wear foam latex prosthetics. Use of other prosthetics, either custom or purchased is prohibited.

  2. The amount of Rubber Wear foam latex prosthetics used does not determine the Winners. As long as a minimum of a single piece is utilized the entry is eligible. In addition, the use of a dozen or more also does not guarantee a “win”.

  3. Originality of design and/or accuracy of reproduction and quality of application, both during and after are key judging factors in choosing a winner. Make us “Believe”.

  4. Videos/photos submitted should attempt to document your process from start to finish as much as possible. We want to see your process, how you put your pieces on and how you make them disappear into your character. Remember, it can’t be more than 3 minutes. You need to show us what you can do in that time, even if your makeup took 10 hours!

  5. Digital alteration of any submitted material is prohibited. Editing of video images to shorten segments (wipes/dissolves/etc.) is acceptable but alteration of your character’s image in any way is cause for disqualification. Your images do not need to specifically be  video. Still images can be submitted for viewing as a slide show as well. Keep in mind that your process is important and not just the end result.

  6. Prize contribution may not be exchanged for other product(s) nor cash value. Any other contributing companies and their prizes are the sole responsibility of those companies and Rubber Wear holds no responsibility for their contributions.

  7. RW reserves the right to feature any and all submissions in their Promotional, Advertising and Social Media accounts as a representation of the Rubber Wear product and its use. RW will credit the original Artist where possible and appropriate.

  8. For the grand prize winner receiving the 5-Day Prosthetics course at Rob Burman’s Laboratory, all necessary transportation, food and housing requirements will be the responsibility of the Winner.
