Default Wintersday Workshop 2011!



Welcome everyone to the 2011 Wintersday Workshop! Credits for the idea for this workshop goes to our awesome and amazing Tzu (previous host) and, of course, the amazing Nolani Academy of Arts community!


*NEW-01/13/2012*Comprehensive announcements of winners will be here starting at 11:00AM PST on Sunday, January 15th Live announcements will be made during Wintersday Workshop party hosted by Arghore!


The Grand Goal of this Workshop is to encourage all participants to grow as an artist - whether that means you can make a grand masterpiece that rivals the greats or like to dabble in simple sketches! The purpose of this workshop is to encourage artists to put forth their best effort and to help these artists grow, irregardless of art skill level The Workshop has the additional goal of enhancing the feeling of community by providing a fun place where participants can learn how to give and receive constructive criticism. All participants are strongly supported and highly encouraged to submit their art into the official Guild Wars Wintersday Art Contest hosted by Arena Net, however we welcome all artists, irregardless whether you plan on submitting or not.





Please be aware that the nature of the Wintersday Artist Extraordinaire, The Best Progress, and The Smiley Face Awards means that those that are very last minute entries (i.e., day before deadline) will most likely not be considered since these awards are over a period of time during the workshop. However, all other categories do not have that restriction since we don't want to discourage those that discover the workshop close to the end from entering, sharing their pieces, and getting whatever feedback they can get to help them grow as an artist.

Awards and prizes are fluid and are subject to change depending on donations.
*Rough values for prize packages were calculated using argos/Kamadan trading trends mid-Nov and guru PC stickies. Ectos valued at 7.5k and armbraces at 23 ectos.

☆Wintersday Artist Extraordinaire Award☆

This award is given to the artist who meets 3 criteries: was a nominee for the "People's Award", participated actively in this thread (both giving and receiving critique and generally being chatty), AND was a candidate for at least 1 of the other Wintersday Workshop awards.

Winner - Morag D

See this link for the comprehensive award list, prizes, and comments!

Quote:
☆Best Progress Awards☆

These awards are for the artists who have listened intently to critique, mastered the art of personal growth, and made long leaps to better his/her piece regardless of art skill level.

1st Place - Olrun the Blade

2nd Place - Rahtschini

3rd Place - Obastable

See this link for the comprehensive award list, prizes, and comments!

Quote:
☆The People's Award☆

Ha! You think voting is easy? Well, this award will be based on you - votes from all of the workshop participants so you can all share in the voting fun! Voting is limited to people who have posted in this thread prior to a week before the workshop deadline to make sure voting is fair (no getting friends to vote for your piece last minute :P ). Despite the 1 week rule, all workshop entries are eligible for this prize. Voting will not be open until the end of the workshop. Votes must be sent via PM to me, and I will keep your vote secret. Please don't vote for your own piece. Since you, the workshop participant, are the judge for this award, the workshop judges (aside from me) are also eligible for this award! So, vote for whoever you think wins this award - the one with your favorite art, the one with the most encouraging words, the one who's the friendliest to all, or whatever you want to vote on. This award is yours to give!

See this link if you're curious how voting was decided!

Winner - Death by an Arrow

Runner up - Kiya Koreena

Quote:
☆The Smiley Face Award☆

This award is given to a person who didn't necessarily enter the thread as an artist - more of a supporter of the thread and the goal. This person kept the thread alive with kind chatter, maybe donated something to the prizes, gave useful critique, submitted tutorials and ideas unselfishly, and generally kept us motivated all the way.

Winner - GeminiJuSa

Runner up - Arghore

See this link for the comprehensive award list, prizes, and comments!

Quote:
☆The Most Epic Award☆

This award goes to the artist who's piece stands out from the rest and make the judges do a double-take, whether that means zooming in on the art to see if they saw what they think they saw, rereading that lit piece that made them go 'say-wha?', or replaying the music/video that made them go 'zounds!'.

Winner - Steelborn

Runner up - Tee Wrex

See this link for the comprehensive award list, prizes, and comments!

The Wintersday Workshop Party is hosted by Arghore! Thank you for your hard work, Arghore!

Wintersday Workshop Party

Date: Sunday 15th of Januari
Time: 18:00h GMT - 23:59h GMT (6pm gmt - 11:59pm gmt)
announcements of Workshop Winners starts around 19:00h gmt
Location: The Frost Gate (mission outpost), International District 1

As far as activities and refreshments go you need not to worry, this is not a 'bring your own booze' party. There will be 'on air' music and trivia provided by gw-en.com radio. We have confirmation that Elfs and Snowmen will come to our party to supply everybody with drinks & entertainment (amoungst which an 'in district' wintersday trivia), and even Santa has promised to pay us a visit ^^ ... but be alarmed! ... The chance that Grentchies will show up and try to ruin our party is pretty much a given! We managed to capture a couple during wintersday and 'extracted' this information ... We can assure you though that no charr plushies were hurt during the interrogation process, we merely used their cuddliness to break the Grentchies ... So if you see any Grentch appear in district grab them and hold them upside down and give them a good shake, anything they 'stole' belongs to the honest person that 'found' it thus be adviced not to show up in a grentchie disguise, or you may have a lot of explaining to do!

As far as give away prizes go, I seem to have most of it sorted out, what i could do with is a bunch of ecto's (20 +/-) to drop over some of the activities (though any donations are welcome as 'we' can fit them in somewhere). To give everybody an idea of what can be won during this party:


** Side note **: If during the party it turns out the interest is so large that a 2nd district opens, we will try and do what is needed to supply both districts with activities based upon how crowded it gets. Prizes won in the 'on air' trivia will either be delivered to D2 or can be claimed after the party, the announcements of the workshop winners will also be repeated 'on air', so if you get stuck in D2 you wont have to miss much ... and in the odd occation that a 3rd district opens, we will try and do the same, we will spread thin but we rely on your understanding to make the event as enjoyable as possible for all that wish to attend.



This thread is still under development! Please feel free to post your thoughts on the workshop Awards and prizes are fluid and are subject to change depending on donations.

Gemini, I like that idea! I'll have to remember to put that option on the judging sheet if anyone wants to be quoted with what they thought about the winners

EDIT: Note that I'll fill in the prizes for the awards in a few days to give some time for those wanting to donate to let me know Also will need to do some price checking on non-ecto/money/armbrace donations so the prizes aren't too uneven XD

I would like to suggest closing the workshop for entry 2 or 3 weeks b4 the official ANet contest ... why? ... to stimulate people to participate in teh workshop, and to prevent people from sending in their art at the last moment to widen their chance on winning something ... not accusing anyone, but i personally think the workshop is about participating and showing your progress... not sending in something at the end and putting up some scetches with it ... it's about participating in a manner that everyone can learn (also from other peoples mistakes and successes), not so much about winning something in the end ... closing for entry some time b4 the official contest hopefully reduces people hopping on at the last moment, and stimulates people participating in the actual workshop

Thus i don't mean the deadline for sending in your final piece, but actually entering the workshop and posting your progress ... Wonder how others feel about this !

Arghore, since you mentioned this during the party, I had thought about it and thought it was a very good point Although I didn't want to put a hard deadline, I did mention that the first three awards are based on participation throughout the workshop so that those putting in last minute entries will basically be out of the running for those three. Plus, I hope everyone will take what you said into consideration for the People's Award

However, the more I thought about it, I realized I didn't want to discourage people from not submitting their art if they didn't learn about the workshop until later so I didn't put that deadline on the other awards

I hope this works with everyone?

I greatly dislike the idea of closing it for entries that far ahead of when the official contest ends, myself. Not only is that not fair on those who find out about the workshop late, but how early someone submits an entry idea and how much they actually participate doesn't necessarily line up or correlate in any way.

I could consider a deadline for entry about 1 or 2 weeks before, but 3 or 4 are just enough. In one week you can - in theory - create two well worked on and receive good critique and have time to edit it. It does depend on the amount of time the artist have to spend and how active people are in the thread.

What we can do though, is try and market the workshop, by let's say try and get it on the front page of guru, make a wiki page and put it out on DA. If you want to you could even spread the word to your allies and see if you have a fellow artist in there that had no idea about this.

Limiting the awards one can be alleged for if one enters late is a good idea too. Or so I think. But it is a bit sad to have to put on limitations. Restrictions are artistic killing.

Thanks, Brandylynn <3

Gemini, Nice idea about advertising! Are you still a contributor on the guru dA page? Would you mind putting a blog entry or announcement on there linking here? Otherwise, I can go poke Sierra and see if she wouldn't mind

Arghore, continuing with Gemini's advertising idea, can you please do something in GuildMag or coordinate with Dutch to see if he would be up to making a blog post about it?

I have no idea on how to even start editing a wiki page, but if anyone wants to make one for the workshop and link it here, that would be great

Also, I don't really visit other GW fan sites, but if anyone has a favorite site and wants to take lead on making posts on other sites to link here (GW2 guru comes to mind for example), that would be great, too

Thanks in advance for your help, everyone I can't wait to see what we can come up with this Wintersday!

What's this? No literature category? Bah humbug!

Since I couldn't participate enough in the Halloween Contest, I'm hoping to be able to check in more often this time around.

I'm still thinking of submitting craft work and I'm hoping I'll be able to send it in to the official contest. And if I can spare some time, I'll try to get something music related in as well for the fun. I'm thinking flute trio/quartet, as I don't have access to piano, don't have embouchure trained for piccolo, and as a hind-thought my singing level was mediocre.

I'll go make post in FA forum in IncGamers too before I forget... again /facepalm. I just keep forgetting about these things.

@Konig: eek, don't worry! Lit is more than allowed and super welcomed! I didn't make a separate category so that lit can compete in all categories and not just its own (I always thought the lit category was a double-edged sword, because you're guaranteed to win something but you're also guaranteed to not win one of the bigger awards since there are so few final entries.) Thanks for the donations, too

@Enchanted Krystal: Thank you for your donation <3

@satomz: ooh, yay craftwork! The official contest seems to love craftwork so I hope to see yours here in the workshop and on the official winners page! Thanks for posting in IncGamers Much appreciated!

I'll have stuff to donate as well, I just need to sort out my own storage and figure out exactly what I have once I have all of the Halloween stuff out

Yay Wintersday! My favorite time of year. :P

I really want to enter this time, I'm not very artistic but I'm going to think of something!

Good luck to everyone. <3
