Welcome to the slight revamped
According to preliminary results, many folks responding to the 2011 census want to see more contests on this community. I think some more uniquely flavored member-sponsored contests would also be fun to see :) but so far Halloween and Holiday contests have been something we've done every year since this community began, and they always get such a huge turnout of entries and votes I do believe they are enjoyed... :D
Why do I change the title from Holiday to Winter? Well, what if we had one of these photo contests each season? It would be the official community sponsored contests -- along with perhaps some more bell plush contests... ;) -- and it would make them more frequent than twice a year. I also invite Australians to deliberately go against the grain and post entries reflecting what season it is for them... :D Let me know what you think. :D
Now ON TO THE CONTEST RULES!!!
WHAT!: Take your toys, and get them into the winter and holiday spirit! What do you do in winter to keep warm or make peace with freezing snow and ice -- or the searing dry heat, if you are Australian? ;) This group of Plusle and Minuns build snowmice :D What will your Pokemon do to enjoy winter? Your goal: appeal to the masses! Take the best and most creative photo, and all the entries will be judged by the community!
HOW: Take your photo or photostory. If you do a photostory, pick ONE of the photos that will be voted on by the community in a poll. When you post your entry make sure to use the CONTEST tag or it won't be included in the voting!
WHEN?: Get your entries in by January 25th (no specific time limit, just get them in before I put the poll up on the 26th)! This should give you time to possibly make your entries maybe even while some snow is on the ground :D
WHY?: Because the winner gets a Pokedoll or some similarly priced item from the Pokemon Center shipped to them free of charge! :D Not to mention the joy of contributing to the holiday spirit!
Post any questions here but remember, your entries must be posted as separate posts with the CONTEST tag!! :D
-Only one photo/entry per member will be accepted into the official vote.
-You can photoshop your entry.
-You can use custom made Pokemon! But I recommend against creating a custom item JUST for this contest - it's not a contest about art skills :) Try to use custom goods you already have if possible.
