Our next contest will be to design a fauna for Torn World. Prize options include $10 Michael's gift cards, custom portraits, prints and limited edition books!


Our second contest is: Torn World Fauna Contest
Deadline: 30 September, 2009, midnight Alaska time

This contest will serve several purposes! It collects entries for our contributors wiki, rewards exceptional work and will be a chance for interested contributors to weigh in on the plants that will become an important part of our world.

Torn World is a collaborative project. To that end, we are encouraging writing and artwork collaborative submissions. When a writer and an artist collaborate on an entry, if it wins in either the artwork or writing category, both collaborators get the complete prize package. Entries must be submitted as written entries accompanied by artwork, though it will be judged independently for writing and for artwork. Can't find an artist to illustrate your awesome idea? Ask here or in the forums for a volunteer!

The prizes will be your choice of any tier 2 or lower prize from our prize pool!

All animals can be land or sea-based - Torn World has a large salt-water ocean that suffered the same time bubble affects that the dry land did. They can be based in any kind of climate that you stipulate, but their unique characteristics should reflect some kind of adaptation to their surroundings (long neck for reaching high-growing food, big feet that act as snow-shoes, etc.). If we have not yet established the kind of climate you need, we can probably add it!

The winning entries will be shown publicly at the site as part of the background information, and will be featured in our networking updates.

All entries must be actual Torn World wiki entries, and to that end, must meet our usual submission requirements and quality standards. All entrants must be registered contributors at the Torn World site. All entries which are approved by Ellen will be added to our canon background material, and will be shown to our contributors as source material in our wiki, with proper attribution. Approved submissions will qualify the entrants as public contributors and allow them to collect credits at the site. All approved submissions will awarded 10 points of karma. (Each entrant will get 10 karma, in cases of collaboration.) Pieces which do are not accepted to the site will receive information about why they were rejected. The contributors will have the option of making edits and resubmitting them for canon after the contest is over.

Entries must contain the following information:

Animal Name(s):
Description:
Habitat: (climate? range? how common?)
Breeding Habits and Family Units: (Eggs? Live Birth? Monogamous? Large packs? Solitary?)
Interaction with Humans: (Shy? Domesticated? Eats people? Hunted for tasty flesh?)
Lore: (superstitions? Fairy tales?)

Send this information in the body of an email to: contests@tornworld.net with the text in the body of the email and the artwork as a .jpg attachment in RBG format measuring 800 pixels on the long side. Use the subjectline: Torn World Fauna Contest

Artwork can be any media. How weird can your submissions be? As odd as you can explain. Each weird feature needs an evolutionary reason to be there, and the animal as a whole must be functional. They may NOT incorporate features that violate established or implied laws of physics, biology, etc.

After the deadline, all work will be posted anonymously for [url="http://www.tornworld.net/contributorsrules.php"]registered contributors only[/url]. All entries are subject to private contributors-only comment (future contests may be reviewed only by the canon board, instead of by all contributors, but that board is not put together yet). For this contest, Ellen will be making all approvals to canon and awarding the final prizes.

Ellen and Ellen's immediate family are not permitted to enter this contest.

Questions, comments and requests for collaborators are welcome in reply to this post.

Having being ill I haven't had time to paint anything new but I have sent in the creatures you already knew about with their own description for the sake of completeness. Still not quite with it, I forgot to put on my name but I'm sure you'll recognise them anyway. I do have some ideas I'll continue to work on but they are a too demanding to finish for midnight tomorrow, I'll likely take a few more weeks.
