Gallery: Thanksgiving AI render winners and runner ups announced

Back in November, we challenged the Internet to render a Thanksgiving image for cash, fortune, and fame. Creators from the Pirate Diffusion Telegram community, subreddit, and Twitter came out in full force and submitted 1,692 images! Judging this was tough, to say the least!

Of course, to promote the contest we used the power of Graydient AI, allowing contest entries from people on mobile phones without the need for GPUs, a computer, or any technical knowledge. Our social media team also used AI to generate turkeys in pirate costumes, as seen here. Having a powerful AI co-worker that can  prototype any wild idea is already changing how we work, and it’s just one of the services we provide at Graydient. Now, onwards to the contest!

Grand Prize winners

Judge’s Choice – César Onkoy – @HonkoyNFT

We are delighted to award the Judge’s prize to HonkoyNFT, which surprised the group chat as a tall Japanese tea vase with hair suddenly transformed into a cybernetic turkey at the table using PirateDiffusion’s /remix command, which allows the creator to re-prompt an image. Telegram members that joined prior to December 1st can jump to the replay here and the final remix can be studied below:

Remixing a photo is a powerful creative tool:

Most UpvotedHannah Sophia from GENPICS





prompt: “/render <openjourney> Turkey Dragon in the kitchen”

Hana’s series of dragon turkeys in the kitchen was, by far, the most upvoted image collection. Hana used the OpenJourney concept, which delivers a painted fantasy feel similar to Midjourney.  There are too many cool images to post here but here’s a view of the collection below. It just goes to show, you don’t need to write a monstrously long prompt to create a monster of an image, you just need a great idea and the AI can quickly fill in the blanks.
