Default Wintersday Workshop 2010




The official Guild Wars Wintersday contest has been announced! For more information about the rules, eligibility and prices, please head over to the official site.

The deadline for the Wintersday Workshop is 1.1.2011! A maximum of 2 entries per person is allowed - however, you can only win once.


__________________________________________________ _______________

Q!: HOW DO I SIGN UP for the Workshop contest!

A: Fill out this form and post it in the Workshop:

Name: (Tzu)
Idea for entry: (grentchies making yellow snowballs)
genre of art: (illustration)

Then, get a Progress Gallery. This isn't obligatory, but it makes judging your entry a LOT easier.
Also, you won't be eligible for a couple of the awards, if you don't have one/haven't shared any progress in this thread.
A Progress Gallery can be hosted anywhere (DeviantArt, Photobucket, Wordpress, etc...). Once you have your Progress Gallery, wherever it's hosted, share a link here.

You've pretty much "signed up" the moment you start sharing progress in the Workshop thread, but if you do it the above mentioned way, it will be a lot easier for the panel of judges to find and evaluate your entries in the aftermath.



A maximum of 2 entries is allowed per participant, but only 1 Award can be claimed per participant.

__________________________________________________ _______________
















The prize pool and Awards rely solely on donations from the community.
Any and all donations are welcome, from Red Iris Flowers to Ecto. Please PM me or Minami here at Guru
if you're interested in donating something. Please consider donating towards an already existing Award
before coming up with one of your own. Chances are you will find one or more which you think are worthy of your donation.

The Honourable Judges

Judges are eligible for every award they're not judging themselves.

Tzu (Tzunedaine Fouil) [All Awards]

Brigitta [All Awards]

Thistle Xandra [All Awards, except Literature Category]



Artists and Their Progress!

I recommend that EVERY entrant sets up an archive of sorts.
Photobucket, DeviantArt, ImageShack, Wordpress...... a place for you to store all progress pictures
and put down notes/journals. This is for the sake of the Judges, both here in the Workshop AND for
Arenanet and the official contest. It makes it much easier for them to root out fraud and identify hard
work and restless effort if you can refer to an archive of progress. Please, all serious entrants, set up
something of the sorts a.s.a.p. You don't *have* to share it with the Workshop right away,
if you're feeling a little sensitive about your ideas. Of course, it makes you a stronger competitor,
if you can and will share ideas and progress all the way!

Great your hosting the other workshop aswell Tzu I probably have some alcohol points I can donate, not really a prize on itself, but its a nice addition to those hunting down that title ^^

I will see if I have time, but I will definatly try to participate. Gonna aim for at least a honourable mention! Will be late nights for it I guess, but the motivation is there ^^

Name: Tommy
Idea for entry: Creating Tyria's biggest snowman!
Genre of art: Digital painting / illustration
Gallery: Here! Yet still empty


Be blad you still remember your name Minami If you're forgetting that, its really going down hill


Oh and...
☆ Pious Snowmen, sign me up for that, in case you want me to do some Trivia, like last year. Thought that was some good fun. Can't promise it though, untill I know the exact date of the party, but probably will be able to attend.

Ooooooh oooh ooh.

I actually have two ideas but I don't think one will be possible for me to do right now (too time-consuming).

Name: Verene
Idea for entry: Grenth/Dwayna propaganda posters
Genre of art: Digital illustration/photomanipulation
Progress gallery: not yet!

The other idea I had was a sort of plushie diorama of the finale, but I highly doubt I'll have the time for that, sadly.

And consider me a Gingerbread Guardian, as I am going to keep up with the thread this time, damnit!

(I'm also trying to poke my boyfriend into joining us, since he joined GWG )
