Nice one for stepping up to offer a prize for this, good for you; and nice one Djinn for organising it - good timing too, I was going to suggest that someone tries to organise something like this, and here you are doing it already!

Now i just to make a really cool base... and find a camera...

I believe they mean that the materials you put on the base can be manufactured items like COD bits or natural like rocks and sticks from your yard.

Morfang is corrent. While you can not have a base that is pre molded you can buy resin and pewter bits for it to add on the base. Also you can add water, leaf mix, pebbles, cork ect to the base. The color is up to you.

Rule Clarification: Also this contest is about the finished base! That includes whatever is going to be on the base as well as paint on the base. By this I mean everyting that would be considered basing material presented in a final product. There does not have to be a model on the base, and if you do include a model, it does not have to be finished or even painted.
Rules update: Also I am limiting the total number of entries to 1 one per person. Now keep in mind if you do a larger base, that you can have smaller 25mm bases built into the larger base (think movement tray), the total product is one base.

Keep an eye in the thread for rule updates since I can not update my original post any longer.
