What are these UF challenges?
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!



Previous editions:

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 :aww:
Here we go!

Now we can go on with the last challenge's results, and then I will introduce this month's challenge to you all.

Here is the July challenge, and the deviations I've picked as the winners!
(Please note: do not feel offended if your fractals haven't been picked. Winners are chosen basing on their way of representing the challenge theme, and I always try to be as impartial as possible while judging.)


The winner of the Formula challenge is littledeviltoo with Emergence:

Emergence by littledeviltoo

A chef d'oeuvre of contrast! The opposites, purple and orange, are sapiently used here and create a stark contrast with the dark, colourless background. This makes the structure stand out and show the Orbit Traps classic shape in all its beauty!


The winner of the Style challenge is Lupsiberg with Landscape:

UF-Chall 54 - Landscape by Lupsiberg

The atmosphere is delicate and soft on the eyes, recreating the surreal feeling of the evening colours right after dusk. The panorama fits the mountainside, and the reddish moon completes it for a surprisingly natural, beautiful effect.


The winner of the Other challenge is Velvet--Glove with Roses are Red:

Roses Are Red by Velvet--Glove

With a clever word play on the title and algorithm used, Chris once again proves mastery over the classic spiral structures, unfolding a Rose Range Lite right before our eyes in all its superb, crimson majesty. Very well done!


This month saw a full swarm of entries, and about half of them were really winning material. Sadly, there wasn't enough room for them all, but please take a look at them here!

Ultra Fractal monthly challenges Redux



Challenge #55: August 2015



August's Formula challenge will be the Gaussian Journey challenge!
For this challenge, you are free to use any basic fractal formula, but for colouring (both Inside and Outside) you are limited to any algorithm that has "Gaussian" in its name. Mappings are subject to the same restriction, meaning that they are banned if none of them has Gaussian in its name (I haven't checked).

August's Theme challenge will be the Shining Star challenge!
As August is the month of stargazing and wishing upon a star (for those who believe in the tradition), this challenge will be dedicated exactly to that! You can either focus on recreating a starry night skyscape, or represent a star in a more "figurative" manner, trying to convey what the wish you would make on it represents for you. Just be sure it still looks like a star!

August's Style challenge will be the Art Nouveau challenge!
The Art Nouveau was an artistic movement, or Judgenstil, developed in the late XIX and early XX century and was characterised by a richness in detail and decorations, as you can see in the Google pictures. Our aim for this month is to make a fractal that resembles that style.



Remember: to enter each challenge, post your deviation's link and thumb in a comment of this journal, and specify which challenge you are entering the fractal in. ALSO: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LINK THIS NEWS ARTICLE IN THE DEVIATION!

Please spread the word by advertising this news article - we definitely want more participants. The more, the merrier!

This challenge's deadline is August 31st, 2015. Ready, set, GO!!! :eager:

I'm so very sorry. I edited the initial FRACTAL MANIPULATION CONTEST journal in my stash which for some reason wasn't working right! It couldn't possibly had been the writer.......lol

Here's the correct link [link]

I will update my comments to the other groups as well!

I hope you'll participate and help spread the word!

Many Hugs! ~Kitty!!
