only on MICECHAT!
What happens when you put Disney Imagineering and competition together for a second time? You get an Imagitition! Sooner than we all thought, the second AI is upon us. I am already excited to see all of the amazing submissions which are just six weeks away. Without further ado, letís get to the details.
All details to follow are subject to change with or without notification by TrevorD, Dustysage, any MiceChat administrator or any Sponsor.
The team submission deadline is Saturday, April 3rd and the contest will officially start at that time.
The contest will run for five weeks from the official start date (Saturday, April 3rd) ending on Saturday, May 8th. On the Wednesday before that, there will be a call for thread submissions as a reminder. Do not submit threads until this date to avoid cheating and stolen ideas. Submissions received after May 8th will not be in contention for judging the grand prize. The results will be released later in the week, after judging has wrapped up and the winner has been officially determined.
The contestants will choose from two prompts which they will use to create their submissions.
As before, the judges will be marking the submissions on a predetermined set of criteria. It is highly recommended that contestants review this list and make sure that their submissions touch on all the issues. This will easily improve your final score.

Hints and Tips
When you think about discussing a future Disney ride, you have to take into account every human sense and emotion. What will riders see, hear, smell, touch, taste and what emotions will they be led to feel? Please consider important attraction details such as Audio, Layout, Effects, Ride/Queue Theme, Capacity, Interaction with Surroundings, Plot and Ride Objective. From there, move into the smaller details if time permits such as technical details (type of ride system, how effects will work, operating procedures, etc.). Another big thing to consider is feasibility. Do you need to remove existing buildings or can they be reworked to suit your needs?
You have wide creative license, but if you can explain why your proposal is more feasible and why the guests will get for the money, you will almost undoubtedly get a higher final score. Similarly, although you might have all of the things listed above in mind for your design, unless you describe how they all work together in your attraction, the judges cannot award you full points. Judges should not be left to fill in the blanks for you. Work everything into your design very clearly and leave no question unanswered. The more concise and complete your entry, the easier your road to winning.
Remember, impressive graphics are only worth a small mark in and of themselves, but using them or another form of communication to enhance your description will help you across the board. You do not need a scale model or anything of that magnitude, but any extra details or audio visual aids you use to make your project interesting or enhance the readers understanding of the project will be greatly appreciated! You would be doing yourself a disservice if you submit a pure text submission as it is much harder to explain what you have come up with. However, if you explain things fully and descriptively, you can still win without audio visual enhancements.
