I’m with @GoodGuy2006 on this one, I’m definitely not even close to good enough to even be noticed.

What are the themes? Have they been revealed yet?

1-3 are definitely big ones for me.

That describes my situation as well; especially the last three…

Perhaps not yet, but it’s a start to get noticed. Not noticed now, but enough time and participation and you might just grow an audience. And can always serve as further practice and learning to stretch your skills. The competitive mindset is good, but to do so only for the prize is unhealthy.

If the themes inspire you, if it gets you to want to build something, even if you don’t enter, go for it. Or if not and you don’t want to, then don’t. I skipped out on the last one since nothing spoke to me. I await to see what this one will be before I decide if I can dedicate some time.

Yeah, I made an account around this time last year and look where I’m now:

Exactly. I got like 50 new followers or something like that after participating in Bio-Cup, so it did help a lot in boosting my popularity as a MOCist.

I used to like the contest in its original format in 2011-2014, but now I’m not so sure. I feel it caters a little too heavily towards the 50/50 constraction/system sculpture style the judges are known for. The themes do not favor me either, as I’m not used to building based on real life.

I might check what the qualifier theme is, but I’m skeptical.

i think a bunch of people submit stuff, but only a few get through, and it’s an elimination thing

The preliminary round hasn’t started yet, but when it does, there’ll be a theme.

I mean, Constraction MOCing has evolved a lot over the past few years, it only feels natural that people would make Constraction-System hybrid MOCs more often.
