Postby Viking Andrew » Wed Sep 01, 2021 2:13 pm

Please review the Halloween 2021 Design Contest Rules before you enter the contest! Entries that do not follow these guidelines may be disqualified.


Submission Guidelines:

  • Innovator and Apprentice levels are limited to 10 submissions each
  • Contain all your entries inside one forum post inside the correct thread
  • All entries MUST be posted within the forum thread to be considered


Artisan

  • Colour can be represented in the sketch or provided in swatches.
  • Use of colour/swatches should be clearly defined. Unless otherwise specified, in-house artists will use their best judgement for colour choice.

Apprentice
  • Reference images must be included.
  • A description of the asset may also be included.


You have until September 20th to enter!

Fine Print
    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.
    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



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. Any posts that violate the spirit of this will be dealt with swiftly and permanently.

By submitting Design Contest entries, you are releasing the rights to your created works and providing Big Viking Games with permission to use these designs in the future.

Designs will be created as close as possible to what is submitted but may need to be altered.

This is so amazing OMG I'm so excited :heart: :balloon:

Will this round involve voting or it is just like the open call ?
Was the deadline mentioned somewhere? because I'm not sure if I missed it.

Thank you for the opportunity :heart:

Does Halloween being "almost entirely player-driven" just apply to the clothes, hair and stuff, or does it include decor as well?

Just to clarify, for the outfit entry is that a full outfit consisting of face and hair, or just clothing?

Not everyone can use AI. I mean I am just now getting to wear I even created something on Ink Scape. And we can not use .svg?

And I am gonna have to step up my game on Innovator.

tried google and typed it al thing

Although Inkscape doesn't allow you to directly save files in AI format, you can simply save it in PDF format, then change the extension from . pdf to . ai by renaming it. This will transform it into a makeshift Illustrator file and the person on the receiving end won't know the difference.

It seems like everytime theres a new design contest, the rules get stricter and stricter in artisan category.
I guess someone like me who designs in photoshop and saves in ai, might not be welcome.

also the Apprentice category,

what about the "Reference images must be included."
What if you didnt have a reference?
