Everyone's a winner:

Every participant will receive a 15% discount code for all products in the Phrozen Store.


  • The mini needs to be printed at 100% size, it can't be scaled up (scaled down is ok).
  • The mini obviously must be painted by yourself, otherwise you'll be disqualified.
  • The mini can't be modified or kitbashed neither digitally nor physically.
  • Bases/dioramas can be customized but won't be decisive in order to win.
  • You can't include content from other Patreons or creators (only by yourself or BTB).

  • You're allowed to submit multiple entries to the contest. As many as you can paint.
  • Winners will have a 1 year cooldown for that position, so the 1st in this contest won't be able to be a winner again until 2022 but the 2nd can still win the next one.

  • Photos can't be edited by any kind of software or be post-processed.
  • You can do minor tweaks like saturation, levels, etc.. to convert the .raw format file.
  • You can't overpaint or edit certain parts of the picture in order to fix mistakes.
  • The final photos must be attached to the email in .jpg (jpeg), max size: 2mb.
  • Photo quality counts, so spend some time getting the best out of your minis.
  • You'll need at least 3 photos from different angles, white/black background.
  • Low quality photos will make evaluation very difficult, so deficient quality photos or the ones that don't meet the requirements will not be evaluated.
  • You can follow this Photography Tutorial as an example: Guide.
  • And this other "How To Photograph Miniatures Like a Boss": Video.

  • Participants must add #Phrozen and @phrozen3d on the posts.
  • Participants must tag and add @bitethebulletstudio.
  • Participants must add #bitethebulletstudio, #bitethebulletcontest.

  • Due to logistical challenges we can't ship the first prize to the following countries: (African Countries, Cuba, Laos, Middle East, Mongolia, Myanmar and Outlying Islands, North Korea, Russia, Brazil and Greece)

We plan on doing one contest and one giveway each Season and add them to our Seasonal Reward System where the patrons that supported us for the entire season will be qualified to enter both the contests and the giveaways on top of receiving the Season Reward Mini for Free.

Remember that the current season is Winter (December > January > February) = Winter's Reward.

We'll further explain all our ideas regarding future contests after finishing this one and depending on all your feedback.
