The Vikings at YoWorld HQ officially challenge you to scare us!

It's (finally) the time to announce this year's Halloween Design Contest!

This year we're asking you to create your scariest, creepiest, scream-inducing, hair-raising, and downright dreadful designs, and enter them for the chance to see your ghastly creation come to life in Yo this upcoming Halloween season!

You can choose to submit your designs in any of FIVE categories: 

CATEGORIES
GRAND PRIZE - Full Outfit, Hair, and Face Designs
    A head-to-toe outfit. Must include at minimum: Hair, facial features (minimum required: eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth), clothing (top and bottom, or dress), and shoes. 15 individual items max. These submissions must include a breakdown of the outfit into individual pieces, including any intended item names, as well as back views where warranted.
Outfit or Costume
    A head-to-toe outfit. Can include tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, Yobers, items, handhelds, hats, etc. (Hairs and facial features not included.) 15 individual items max. These submissions must include a breakdown of the outfit into individual pieces, including any intended item names, as well as back views where warranted.
Hairs
    One hair, along with any suggested variant colours, (variant colours not required to enter). A maximum of one hair in eight different variant colours per entry. Any accessories will be 'baked in' (no separate items will be created).
Single Items
    A SINGLE item - for this contest, single Items may consist of a Yober, Handheld, Hat, Mask, or Hair Accessory.
NEW THIS YEAR! Pet
    A single pet and three short sayings that your pet will say. YoWorld Artists will create the animation for the pet, but if you have an idea for an animation, you can include this with your entry, (your animation idea may not be used or may be altered depending on animated pet limitations.) For better performance, your pet design should be a side or 3/4 view, with split body parts. Pets should also have the back view of their head included. (See Pet Entry thread for more details).

RULES
Designs in .ai, .svg, or other vector formats will receive extra consideration.
    While hand-drawn designs are given consideration, vector images still work best with Yo. If you decide to enter, choose whatever medium works best for you - but it might be a good opportunity to learn vector software if you don't know it already! Try Inkscape - it's free!
    Note: Please try avoid changing the main shape of the Yo (waist slimming, adding a neck, etc). Additionally, if you do decide to create in a vector format, try to avoid blur or drop shadow effects (or at least keep them to one group) as they don't tend to work well with Yo. Adhering to both of these will increase your chances of being selected as a finalist!
You MUST send your design files to [email protected] upon submission.
    In order to be considered for this contest, you must email us the files you have created BEFORE THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE.
All items in your submission must be contained in ONE image
    Entries that contain items split between more than one image may result in some items being omitted, should the design be chosen as a winner.
You MUST include a back view in your design (if it is warranted).
    Any items in your design that are visible when your Yo turns around should have a back view included in the design.
We will endeavour to honour designed suggested variants, if it is possible.
    Suggestions and even designs for potential variants for your design are welcome, though not required. Variants and alternate colours are not guaranteed to be created.
Variations between submitted designs and the final winning items may occur.
    If your entry is chosen, our artists may need to adjust your entry, or even re-create your entry from scratch, in order to make the items work in YoWorld. We will do our best to represent the original design while recreating it, however exact replicas are not guaranteed, and minor variations will not be revised. Using a vector image file, avoiding filters and airbrushing, submitting your source files, and ensuring your design does not expand too far outside the confines of the Yo will help minimize variances.
Any design you submit must be your own original work. 
    By posting your design, you acknowledge that you are releasing all rights to your creations, and confirm that they are your own creations. Any violations of this rule will result in a permanent disqualification from future design contests.

HOW TO ENTER
Post your entry in the correct entries thread:

• (Above finalist and winning numbers are subject to revision based on number of eligible entries received. Should the number of eligible entries received be lower than the posted finalist and winner amounts, these amounts may be lowered to reflect the submission count.)

DISCUSSION
Please use this thread to discuss the contest only.

Note: The Forum Rules of Conduct and Posting Guidelines apply throughout the duration of this contest. Note that we will not tolerate complaints or attacks against any entries, either during the entry period or after the results are announced.

Great catch, Leeum! This one was a slight oversight on my part -- you will now notice the thread has been updated to reflect the correct Grand Prize -- which includes a full outfit, hair, and facial features! :)

Will the pet finalists receive no prize, or are they included with the single item finalists?

whoever designs a pet, please try to make it so it kinda sounds like something a pet might be thinking... not something that someone behind a desk has just whipped up. even better, just animal noises like we used to get :silly:

I know these things are full of drama, but I do &^%$ing love them. Thanks for allowing the players to bring their creativity to Yo again. I always try to be the voice of patience about these things, but I get just as excited and impatient as the rest of the gang to get to the finish line. I am really looking forward to all the entries and for the winners!

Two questions:

- For the single item category, are we no longer able to enter things like: eyes, lips, makeup etc?

- In outfits, are we allowed to make shoes/feet similar to ones you've previously made, or do we have to stick to the normal feet shape. I'll include pics as to what I mean.
