For the first time, the Expert Panel has been used to determine the winner of the 2016 Summer Heat contest.
The score uses the weighted average of the Expert Panel's design, smoothness, creativity, and overall ratings for each model plus the weighted average of the community rating to give an Expert Panel score from 0 to 10.

We have four awesome entries into the Summer Heat contest this year. They need your ratings to factor into the overall decision and trigger which models will reach the Expert Panel! Only those models with a rating of 75% or more will do so! To see the entries, visit the official contest page. You can also see the current rating and number of ratings.

We are proud to showcase the official logo for Summer Heat 2016, made by member/administrator ~stεεlspectrum~. For this, he will receive an elusive Logo tag. He did a really great job on the logo, so everyone be sure to tell him that!
Also, there was no Model of the Month winner for July. No model reached the voting and rating threshold. There will not be a Model of the Month contest for August as the Summer Heat contest wraps up. Thanks to those that did participate in the July contest!
