Contest Brief

Tragedy struck the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France when a fire ravaged its roof and caused its 93-meter high spire to collapse. The French government has vowed to rise from the ashes by rebuilding the cathedral. They've announced their intentions to launch an international architectural competition to replace the fallen spire.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the landmark in its new era. Shall it be characterized by classic architecture, modern techniques, or a creative infusion of both? We're excited to see your take on it!

Send us a rendering of how you would reconstruct the cathedral's spire or its entire roof. ORIGINAL WORK ONLY!

Upload your work on social media and tag our official accounts on Facebook (fansoffreelancer), Instagram (freelancerofficial), and Twitter (freelancer). Include the link of your social media posts when you submit your entries.

NOTE: This is not the official competition by France, but a venue for freelancers to showcase imaginative imagery.

    Why this contest is getting so long, we gave time to the contest but no body cares even. "Art has no value".

    Contest Holder - Hi, could we have something done about entrant #20 - Angel L - please? His entry to this contest are actually the renders - specifically the 2nd, 1st, 4th, 11th and 13th render produced by the vendor of the model bellow, Marc Mons:

    https://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/3d-notre-dame-paris-1240650

    The bent entry is one thing, but the entrant then proceeding to harass, unchecked, anyone who's rumbled him - specifically Karolis #93 - several days ago now is completely unacceptable. We've followed procedure, reported his entry as well as him - nothing's happening, he's now starting on other users, specifically - me.

    I think we'd all appreciated this being stopped, if you wouldn't mind. You are, after all - Staff.

    No offense but freelancer needs to take some aggressive measures against the morons who keep ruining every contest by uploading random entries, maybe IP banning!
    When legit freelancers see a contest drowning in shit entries they won't participate! Cause it's highly likely the contest holder won't even notice a good entry in a plethora of random pictures!

      ¿Estás haciendo la pregunta - si Freelancer planea enviar la entrada ganadora para su consideración en el concurso oficial de diseño francés y, de ser así, ¿tiene la intención de acreditar por completo al artista original para el diseño, sí?

    What happens if we don't link our entries to social media postings - does that make our work ineligible for genuine consideration?
