Participation

In order for users to participate in a contest, they have to either use paper, a 2D drawing program or a 3D modeling program to make a sketch of an Rthro model that they would like to see in the catalog. They then have to reply to the official contest tweet with their submission. Users are not allowed to steal online pictures or send in someone else's drawing(s). They are also not allowed to send in copyrighted images, as they would be disqualified. Meme and joke submissions were also disregarded.

Judging criteria

Rthro designs are judged and evaluated based on three criteria:

Originality

Appeal
