The 212 teams that participated in this year’s Google Model Your Town Competition produced thousands of models, the vast majority of which were jaw-droppingly, heart-stoppingly, mind-bogglingly gorgeous. Narrowing down the field to six finalists was a gut wrenching affair, but it had to be done. In alphabetical order, the finalist teams for 2012 are:
Modeler: Randall CraneGetaria’s collection of models
Modelers: Josetxo Perez Fernandez, Pedro Domecq AguirreLeominster’s collection of models
Modeler: Tom HarveyLowell’s collection of models
Modeler: Beryl ReidToruń’s collection of models
Modelers: Arkadiusz Pawlowski, Górniak GrzegorzZielona Góra’s collection of models
Modeler: Tomasz Szular
This video provides an aerial, musical tour of each of the six finalists’ models in situ. Make some popcorn and enjoy.
It’s voting time!
It’s up to you (and the rest of the world) to pick an overall winner. We’ve created separate one-minute video tours for each town, as well as KML files that you can download to see the models in Google Earth. Peruse the entries, then vote for your favorite. You have until May 1st, 2012 to cast your ballot.
Congrats and thanks to everyone who entered—this year’s models were truly amazing.
