General Contest Thread

Postby Emperor Ing » 11.02.09 5:29pm

2012: Discussion for the "Stylized Metroid Series" Contest begins on Page 27 of this thread!
2011: Discussion for the "Design-A-Samus" Contest begins on Page 20 of this thread!
2010: Discussion for the "Design-An-Enemy" Contest begins on Page 12 of this thread!

Well, I feel that instead of clogging up a different topic for this stuff, we'll keep it all in one spot. Later, a mod may make an 'official' thread or something; oh well.


So, let's talk about that contest!

I won't lie... those prizes for first place made my mouth water a little bit... mainly for the Amazon gift card (lol)... However, if I WERE to compete, I'm not sure how I'd go about it (mainly from a getting-materials point of view). Though if I had more definite means, I'd be racing off at a shot at this (I might still try to cobble something together...). Still, I am highly intrigued at what sort of artistic interpretations we can have going here.

Anyway, I think it's a pretty neat idea, and I hope some folks around here with artistic inclinations give it a go.

I'm really excited for this contest. My only concern is if your one of the winners.
Will we have to email the admins with our street address? Not much information is discussed about that.
Besides that, I'm looking forward to see all the entries! Do your best entry fellow fans! I might summit mine in soon. ;D

Thank you MDB for such a great idea!

I'm actually surprised one wasn't made already. Oh well.
I hereby declare this the 'official' thread.

I'm with Emperor Ing on this one, those are some pretty awesome prizes. I might be more inclined to compete if I were actually eligible to win, and if I wasn't so... let's call it "artistically challenged".

Regardless, I'm looking forward to what some of the people here will come up with. Can't wait to see the results! :D

Something tells me at least one of the four admins is NOT a criminal rapist/serial killer, so in that sense it will PROBABLY be safe to give your address to them.

Well, there's two months to do this. Lotsa time.

Should this be advertised here and abouts?

Yes, please tell as many people as you like about this. The more entries we get the better!

You know there are going to be ones who are going to complain..

I find the last rule total unfair!

Us Only?
No Canada how fair is that?!?! I'm sure there are a lot of Canadians on this board. Or am I the only one?
I still think its so unfair.
I really hate when people restrict it to one country like this. We are just above you. Hell I'm sure anyone in Canada would help pay the extra shipping if they won!

Good luck to everyone.

VGM out...

I think it's legal issues, not prejudice.

Pretty sure you're the only one, dude.
I am basically paying for shipping out all of this stuff. Canada shipping prices, or anywhere else, for that matter, are LUDICROUS. I'm not stopping you from entering or creating your own, even if it's just for fun. But if yours turns out to be one of the top 3 best entries, I'm sure we could work something out. I definitely don't want to have to pay the insane costs for shipping, that's for sure.

Not everyone is so willing to split shipping costs. It's a contest. It's free to enter, and it should be free to win.

Entries will be judged by the MDb staff. Winners will be announced on January 4, 2010.
Contest is for US residents only. (Shipping costs are too high for anywhere else.)

Curses! I see this kind of text more often than "Get free baby here!"

Not quite. My cousin payed 6 Dollars to send the MPT poster to Brazil, plus around 4 for the game + T-shirt. I doubt shipping all that 1st place stuff would cost more than 10 Dollars.

I'm gonna consider my entry... Even if I can't get the prizes, it would be fun. I'll post back soon enough.

I might enter, even though I live in Norway.
I think I have some epoxy putty lying around and some acrylic paint, after my love affair with Games Workshop miniatures. :D
