As usual, every year there is a Golden Vinci Contest. The Golden Vinci 2015 is the fourth and we are thankful to our trusted media partners Brückenkopf, Tabletop Insider and Putty&Paint. This year we also have to welcome 2 new partners: Tiny Tales Studios from Spain and Big Panda V Hobbyshop.
This year, there is a new additional category in our contest powered by Tiny Tales Studios.
Golden Vinci 2012
Golden Vinci 2013
Golden Vinci 2014
The Golden Vinci 2015 starts right now. Detailed Information follows right below :-)
We are already excited what beautiful contributions you'll be able to accomplish in one of the following categories:
The category single miniature is for figures up to 32mm (Models like ogres are ALSO part of this category, even if their actual size is more than 32mm). Your mini can stand on a normal or a scenic base (But diorama like bases, which set the miniature in the background or be a huge part of your project, will be moved to the Open category by us).
There where always questions about mounted models. In the single miniature category only horses, cold ones, boars are allowed. Pegasi, dragons, manticores or war chariots etc. will be part of the Monster category.
Here is the place of all your big guys. Monsters of all kinds from Fantasy to Science Fiction or other. Even monsters riding on a monster are allowed.
Large Scale Models / Busts:
This category applies to figures larger than 32mm and busts.
Everything with wheels, tracks, armor plates and wings - if they're mechanical.
This is the place for all the goodies which don't fit in the other categories. Like dioramas, whole units or something like that.
The Tiny Tales category has a fixed contest miniature - the Wizard of Pumpkinland. What you do to him, or what story you tell is just up to you ;-)
How can I participate?
If you like to participate in our contest, you must be a follower of our blog.
It is possible to participate in more than on category, but you're only allowed to contribute in a category once. There is a maximum of three contributions in total.
We primarily judge the painting of your contribution - 'cause this is a painting contest - but over all idea, atmosphere and basing are part of it.
Sending us pictures of your project is a concluding agreement we (dieVincis) and our media partners allowed to show these in context with this competition.
Deadline of the competition is 03. May 2015 23:59 CET
How to send my pictures?
Please take a minimum of 3 to max.5 pictures from different angles. Keep in mind not to extend the size of your pictures over 1.5MB.
Please make also sure you keep some of the higher quality files stocked at home, because our media partner Tabletop Insider will need those for publishing.
Send your pictures at competition[at]dievincis.de there must be your name and the matching category of your contribution in this e-mail.
Please send separate e-mails for your different contribution naming them with matching title in the subject line.

There has to be no pictures of your miniature on the internet, the day you enter the competition. Work in progress stuff excluded. You'll get an confirmation mail from us, that your contribution is in the contest. After that, you'll be free to show it if you like. If you deviate from this rules, keep in mind we will probably exclude your contribution from the contest.
Everybody can compete, except the Vinci Team.
You already know our Golden Vinci Trophy by now, we believe. But we'll show them here anyways :)
The first 3 in every category get one trophy. Gold, Silver and Bronze Vinci. In the new category Tiny Tales Competition there will be also the best 3 donated with the "Tiny Tales Witch".
Please help us to spread the word, no matter if it's on your own blog or Facebook or whatever, so we can reach as many Painters/Modellers as possible.
