How do challenges work and how can I participate?
Can I help promoting the challenges in some way?
What if I have an idea for a future challenge?
You can find all this information and more in the Ultra Fractal challenges FAQ, which is also part of our very first UF challenge, the one for February 2011.
If you already know the rules, then you're good to go - read on for this month's challenge!
You can find all of the previous challenges in this journal. Please keep in mind that the challenge rules changed after the 26th edition!
Links to ALL UF challenges (updated periodically!)Since the UF challenges are growing in number, instead of linking them all in each new one, I thought I'd make a collection journal for all of them. This will contain all challenges held so far, from the newest (top) to the oldest (bottom), all conveniently thumbed for you! It will also be updated each month so that ALL challenges are reachable from here, even the newer ones. And this journal will of course be linked in every challenge, to keep them all connected
Sadly, challenge #11 is apparently a broken link. It's the only inaccessible one so far, though, so I may be able to restore it someday, if you guys wish me to.
Unfortunately, there has been only one contribution to last month's challenge, which will therefore be declared the winner.
C'mon guys, what's up with ya all? Where has your fractal awesomeness gone? BRING IT ON RAIT NAO!
Anyway, here's what our family squirrel =CoffeeToffeeSquirrel presented us with:
Regardless of it being the only entry, it proves a good effort nevertheless, with a lovely gaming board and a nice concept. Long live king Mandelbrot!
...So, here we go with this month's challenge!
Ultra Fractal monthly challenges Redux
Challenge #05: June 2011
May's challenge will be a Formula challenge - its title being Obsolete!
Our purpose this month is to create fractals using formulas from obsolete.ufm, obsolete.ucl and obsolete.uxf ONLY. You may or may not use mappings, depending on your personal preference, but all your layers must have fractal formulas and colouring algorithms coming from the specified groups.
This challenge is aimed to show the hidden beauty of "obsolete" formulas. I can't give you any example for now, but I will probably come up with something made for this challenge in the next days. Do your best and show us all the wonders of the obsolete!
Remember: to enter the challenge, post your deviation's link and thumb in a comment of this journal.
This challenge's deadline is June 30th. Ready, set, GO!!!
