Our next contest will be to design a major landmark for Torn World. Prize options include custom portraits, prints and limited edition books!


Our second contest is: Torn World Landmark
Deadline: 31 October, 2009, midnight Alaska time
Guest judge: Ursula Vernon

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 landmarks that will become an important part of the geography 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 1 or lower prize from our prize pool!

Landmarks can be natural (eg: the Grand Canyon or the Great Salt Lake) or manmade (eg: Stonehenge, Easter Island heads). They should be large in scale.

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 our canon board 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:

Name(s):
Description:
Location:
Origins: (natural? Made by the ancients? Made by some culture since the ancients? A product of the Upheaval?)
Mythology and Beliefs: (Our characters may not know the actual origin; what do they believe? Is the area shunned or in use?)

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 Landmark Contest

Artwork can be any media.

After the deadline, all work will be posted anonymously for our canon board to review. The board will decide which entries will be canon, and of those, a guest judge will choose one entry each for outstanding artwork and writing.

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

Okay, I have an idea for a manmade landmark; I could use an artistic partner for this. I am also open to the idea of writing up a description for a natural landmark, if someone has art they would like described.

Hmm! I checked with Marina, and indeed, she's sending replies to all entries letting people know they're safely in. They will come from the contests@tornworld.net address - you may need to whitelist that address. I've liked NOT knowing who has entered, when I'm judging, but I can see the desire to know that it was safely received. If the PM system here at the forums is working for you, perhaps Marina can reply that way to you - be sure to ask specifically when you send in your entries. I have verified that she received both text entries.

Also, please note! The entries should be complete - artwork and text sent in at the same time! This saves some work getting the entries posted, and is part of the collaborative process!
