In co-operation with the Official Role-Playing Tournament


The Patrons' Challenge


Contest Closed

Deadline for character drawing submission: April 14th 2007


One does not need to look hard or far in Elftown to realise several facts: that many Elftowners love to write - this includes RPing. That many love art, and that many like the two combined. Based on these facts, we present the Patrons' Challenge.

There have been many contests where people have asked others to draw their characters, and other contests where people have been asked to draw their own character. By entering this contest you shall draw the character of another Elftowner, and in turn, have your own character drawn by a fellow Elftowner.

The premise is thus: each entrant signs up, and submits one Role-Play character bio of their own creation; after the deadline for entrants has passed, each entrant will be assigned the character bio of one of their fellow entrants. Their task will be to produce a picture of their allotted character based on the information provided in the biography.

At the end of the tournament, there will be two winners - a writer - the entrant deemed to have written the best character bio - and one artist - the entrant deemed to have produced the best portrait of a character.


* Entrants * PC Rules * Patrons' Challenge Art Submissions


Note: Reading the rules would be a wise idea.

The Patrons' Challenge is a simple enough concept: You enter by submitting an RP character of your creation, and participate by drawing the character of another entrant. There shall be two winners - one artist, and one writer.

2007-03-19 [Azuri]: whoo! Everyone love mystery prizes :D

2007-03-19 [FlowerGirl21]: I love seeing that the majority exists of creative minds where words are concerned, excelling at that, and doing okay in the drawing, it's interesting really

2007-03-19 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Ooooh, it's a mystery! XD

2007-05-06 [Shika Lane]: are the winners gonna be "announced" any time soon? i mean the second part of the competition ended nearly a month ago now.

2007-05-08 [~The Dreamer Ilaes~]: Quite interested in finding out the winners here !!! Is the annoucement going to be much longer ?

2007-05-08 [Lothuriel]: I think we are awaiting a couple more votes from Crew members.

2007-05-13 [Anvikit]: :)

2007-05-20 [SilverFire]: No chatter, please. Now can be used for that.

2007-05-22 [Phoenix Ashes]: yea so when are the results going to be published??? or has it gone to the dogs?

2007-05-22 [SilverFire]: *twitch* Thank you for your patience and understanding, good manners are always appreciated.

2007-05-23 [Phoenix Ashes]: i am sorry, had a bad day, but i was wondering when a date maybe set?

2007-05-23 [SilverFire]: The crew are currently voting, when they're done, the poll will go up on Mainstreet for the rest of Elftown to vote - as I'm sure you're aware, the crew are all very busy and industrious people, so we need to be patient and give them time to do all their jobs properly - remember, for this art contest, the voting is more complicated that normal - they're not only looking at whose art the personally feel is the best, but also who managed to accurately portray the bio they were give. :)

2007-05-23 [Phoenix Ashes]: again im sorry

ok then well i hope that it is soon *grin*

2007-06-19 [Sunrose]: I'll create a Mainstreet poll with the top 10 when the current poll has about 1000 votes. If that takes too long (I generally use the 1000-criteria, so I know how long it takes most of the times), I'll go ahead sooner :)

2007-06-20 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Thanks much for the update :)

2007-06-20 [Sunrose]: You're welcome :)

2007-06-27 [Shika Lane]: well finally. its about time things appeared

2007-06-27 [SilverFire]: Your numerous snide comments were at least slightly understandable when you were waiting for the poll to be posted - as impatient as I think you were, I know how frustrating waiting can be. Now, however, it's completely uncalled for; [Shika Lane]. Your future comments will all be deleted until you start to show some courtesy (as have your past comments). No one here is paid for their work - not the council, or the people running contests - and we have lives outside of Elftown: some of us have jobs, some of us are students, some parents - some a combination of all three: this is our spare time we are using to do more work in - and whilst usually we don't mind - people with a poor attitude can make us loathe the job. If you were paying us, perhaps you would have the right to complain. You are not; so don't. Thank you.

2007-06-27 [Shika Lane]: patience has never been my strong point i was saying what people were probably thinking if it came across as harsher than it was meant to i'm sorry. i guess i'm more irritated than usual coz i didnt get through again i supose. but anyways i'm sorry it just took longer than i actually ever expected.

2008-01-18 [Aeolynn]: I participated in this contest yet I didn't get the badge... is there a reason?

2008-01-18 [SilverFire]: Did you enter the contest using a different account? Your username isn't on the entrants page.
