Create your own Transformer and win L$250,000!

Paramount Pictures International (PPI) is inviting residents of Second Life to design and build your own Transformer, for the chance to win L$250,000.

The competition was inspired by the Paramount movie TRANSFORMERS, which was released worldwide from June 28 and is currently breaking box office records.

Aspiring engineers have just four weeks to develop your own 'robot in disguise' using the 3D modelling, design and programming tools built into the Second Life viewer. Entrants are required to send a video clip of your Transformer in action to by 7:00 PM SLT on Friday 7th September.

On Thursday 13th September a shortlist of entrants will be invited to visit Sector 7 - the official home of TRANSFORMERS in Second Life - to demonstrate their Transformers in front of a panel of judges.

The creator of the winning avatar will receive the cash prize of L$250,000 (approx. US$1,000), plus the opportunity to see their Transformer showcased alongside the official Bumblebee and Barricade avatars currently available from Sector 7.
