    How to enter:

    2. Create a new Album with images of your design
      1. If you are submitting more than one design, create a separate Album for each
      2. The albums accept images of any resolution, so nice, high quality images are appreciated
      3. Suggestions include a screenshot of the 3D Model, renderings, and images of the actual design once it has been manufactured.
    3. Albums created between these dates will be automatically entered into the contest, noting that in some countries these types of contests are against the law, or require more than just this notice to be lawful, and should a winner be chosen from such a country, an alternate prize may be given or an alternate winner may be chosen.
    How a winner is chosen:
    1. The community will chose 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place via voting on the forum. Alibre, LLC will choose 3 Honorable Mention winners.
    2. On or around 11/18/2017 Alibre will select a pool of the highest quality entries representing a variety criteria such as:
      1. Complexity
      2. The "cool" factor
      3. Quality of submission (e.g. 500x300 pixel images would be "low quality")
      4. Uniqueness
    3. On or around 11/20/17 Alibre will create a forum post and notify users to vote on their favorites
    4. We will tally the top 3 vote receiving designs.

    Prizes

    Eligibilty
    Designs must be created or substantially created in Alibre Design software. No purchase is necessary to win, and purchasing will not increase your chances of winning. Different countries have different rules for contests. If you live in a country where this kind of contest or prize is not lawful, or where these rules and notices do not constitute lawful rules or notices, you are unfortunately ineligible.

    Question: The Gallery is just the images and renders not uploading the actual model?

    How do you upload new content to an existing album? It's not at all clear.
