Winners of the St. Patrick's Art, Poetry and Description competition 2009:

Leprechaun's Gold

People searched far and wide,
Looking for something they can't find.
“At the end of the rainbow!” They would say,
But trudged unhappily home at the end of the day.
People grew untrustworthy and greedy,
Trying to find something that was ugly and beady.
Things grew violent, malicious and angry,
Children grew sick, faded and hungry.
Wanting their parents love and support,
But they turned their back, cross their arms and snort.
So the children ran away,
A place where its safe to play.
A place where the angry people can't find,
A place where they can run and hide.
A place far away from the Leprechaun's Gold,
A place far away from the sinister cold.
A place in their head,
every time they pray and go to bed.

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: new badges! ^__^

2008-01-02 [Sunrose]: Cuuuute! ^^
Hmm what if you put the text underneath (right side) the clover? Without using 'place', just write 1st/2nd/3rd Poetry/Art?
lol sorry, just think the clover is so cute and should be on its own..

I tried to make an example of what I mean, but I don't have your cute font (I think) :p

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: ^^ thank you, I've put the text next to the clover :)
the cute font is Cooper std, isn't that a standard font?

2008-01-02 [Sunrose]: Wow that looks awesome! :D :D

Hmm I don't have that one and don't think I've heard of it before.. :)

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif> thank you

well, I have no idea where that font comes from xD
I just picked randomly fonts in photoshop, and liked this one ^^

2008-01-02 [Sunrose]: Photoshop has a lot of fonts, it's amazing :D
I made a few small adjustments (didn't want to harass you about every little thing..), I think it's ready for action! :D

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: *hooray*

I noticed it indeed, I just wanted to ask which little things I should change to make it ready for action ;)
thank you for taking care of that! :)

2008-01-02 [Sunrose]: Hey, could you maybe make a tiny clover that I could add to the calendar-note? :D
Size of a mood-icon (max. 40 pixels wide and 25 pixels high)..

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: I shall make it right away ^^

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: <img:stuff/littleClover.gif> I just finished mine (which is transparent :)

2008-01-02 [Sunrose]: Awesome, I've added it to the note =D

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: I see ^^ that's great, yay!

2008-01-03 [Linderel]: The participant badge is lacking an 'r'. <_<

2008-01-03 [nehirwen]: O.o *fixed*

2008-01-04 [nehirwen]: shall I also submit the dividers of this and thanksgiving festival to elftown graphics? maybe people like to use them that day or in general..

2008-01-04 [Sunrose]: Sounds like a good idea :D

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: This looks awesome! O.O -is in awe-

(If you haven't noticed, I greatly dislike

2008-01-05 [Sunrose]: Astrics?

2008-01-05 [Linderel]: Asterisks, I believe.

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: I had to google that word xD
and yes I noticed it. (before the wondering of the word, lol)
But thank you [Lin-tastic]! :)

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: No, thank you. I used both this one and Thanksgiving Festival as bases for New Years Day Festival. ;D

2008-01-05 [Lin-tastic]: Oh, and thanks, Linderel, for correcting my spelling. I never was too sure on spelling the silly word...

2008-01-05 [Sunrose]: Ah now it makes sense lawl :p

Hmm btw we should add a photo-proof requirement here ([Lin-tastic] reminded me).
The general rules don't specify what kind of proof it needs to be. It can be a sock, spoon or whatever, maybe something related to the theme that most people have access to :)

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: maybe a coin? (the biggest coin they have in the participants country, if it isn't to small?) - as in 'the gold at the end of the rainbow'..

2008-01-05 [Sunrose]: Good idea! =)

2008-01-05 [nehirwen]: I've put it as point C. in the St. Patrick's day Competition Rules.

2008-01-06 [Lin-tastic]: Really? I chose the left glove/ it is New Years when it happens, I figured most people would have their snow gear
I just put it on the actual page of the

2008-01-25 [Fizban]: This is an un-official contest right?

2008-01-25 [Lin-tastic]: Last I knew, it was. Are you interested in competing?

2008-01-25 [nehirwen]: This is an unofficial contest indeed, as you won't get a pretty badge in your badge slot. (you may put one in your description though)
You can read more info about festivals in this article: <URL:news.html?nrs=432>.
And feel welcome to enter this contest ^^

2008-01-31 [bullet in the head]: did you now that St. Patrick was actually one perverse motherfucker. read his confessio

2008-01-31 [Sunrose]: Thanks for the tip :)

2008-02-01 [sequeena_rae]: Did you know St. Patrick wasn't even Irish? :o He was Welsh omfg!

2008-02-01 [nehirwen]: <img:44166_1164557415.gif> more St. Patrick info:

2008-02-02 [Lin-tastic]: -giggles- It's good to know about that. lol We should make an informative page for each of them, the basic history of the festival, but that would mean more work, wouldn't it?

2008-02-02 [nehirwen]: Nah, that job is for the description entrants to do.
But you may look up a wikipedialink for a starter. :)

2008-02-02 [Lin-tastic]: Sounds like fun, huh? I'm thinking of entering something into each contest...Oh, and a little surprise for the staff of Festivals. ;D It should be fun. xD

2008-02-02 [nehirwen]: A little surprise? :) lol.
Have fun with entering the contests! ^^

2008-02-04 [Lin-tastic]: Thank you. You should too. It'd be interesting to see what you come up with. :)

2008-03-08 [nehirwen]: Vote on: SPD Poll 2008!!

2008-03-17 [nehirwen]: Congratulations to the winners, and a happy St. Patrick's day to all!! <img:44166_1164145171.gif>

2008-05-21 [nehirwen]: This contest is now opened for 2009! <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-11-23 [Artsieladie]: Hmm... No photography section? Just working on MC, so I thought I'd ask. ;P

2008-11-23 [nehirwen]: No, last year I had zero entries, so I've removed that part of the contest for this year.

2008-11-23 [Artsieladie]: Ah, I kinda' thought maybe. ;P

2008-11-23 [nehirwen]: Always good to ask. :)

2008-11-24 [Artsieladie]: Oh, yeah. I agree because it never hurts to ask a question. If you don't ask questions, you're less likely to get answers. hehe

2008-11-24 [nehirwen]: And one could do the wrong thing, for unnecessary reasons. ;)

2009-02-02 [LunaWolfDragon]: Time to see how good my drawing skills have become since I've been practicing

2009-02-16 [LynnAnneBrown]: I hate to be a pain, but I have to ask......Why are the badges for this contest four leaf clovers and not shamrocks.

2009-02-16 [nehirwen]: Cause you get those (too) if you google shamrocks, and these give luck. :P

2009-02-16 [LynnAnneBrown]: Cool, that makes sense, talk luck to anyone Irish and you'll see our ears start to grow.

2009-02-16 [nehirwen]: ;)

2009-03-17 [FamousPanda]: So, is there going to be polls?

2009-03-17 [nehirwen]: >.<
*puts on to-do-list for today*

2009-03-18 [nehirwen]: <img:17985_1127690355.gif> SPD Poll 2009 :)

2009-03-25 [Artsieladie]: Exported the page and added keywords. :)

2009-03-25 [nehirwen]: Yes, I noticed. x) thanks

2009-03-25 [Artsieladie]: No problem. :) I see a lot of pages not exported. This is why when [Hedda] mentioned the 'exporting issue' on another page, one of the EPRM pages, I believe, I asked him, if I could go ahead and export pages that should be and he said to. It has happened that some of the pages got unexported, but I think [Hedda] squished that bug. hehe

2009-03-25 [nehirwen]: Yeah, original this page was exported. In my memory anyway - but it seems I have the memory span of 3 seconds. :p
All festival pages are and should be exported, good you're checking it all. :)

2009-03-26 [LynnAnneBrown]: Congratulations, JaJaJulie and pegasus1000

2009-03-26 [nehirwen]: I'll announce the poetry winner soon too. :)

2009-07-11 [nehirwen]: Pointless comments deleted.

2011-03-19 [LunaWolfDragon]: <.< damn do up a pic useing my avatar on imvu for this contest and i miss it
