Here is a list of the official competitions that take place in Elftown in order to provide Elftowners with new and interesting things to do. Members' own competitions can be found at Art Contests, Writing Contests and Photo Contests.


* [#Art Competitions] * [#Writing Competitions] * [#Photography & Photomanipulation Competitions] * [#Other Competitions] * [#Festivals] *

Current Contests:


General Rules/Guidelines:

- Read the individual rules and theme of each competition before entering it. Don't just assume the theme from the title, some are slightly more specific than they sound.

- Official contests are usually closed at midnight, Elftown time, on the date of the deadline. Elftown time is UTC, which can be seen on the top of the right hand column.

- Official contest polls are usually kept open until there are around 300 votes, rather than for a set amount of time. With the Holiday Competitions, however, they are open in accordance with the time allowed to enable the announcement of the winners on that holiday. If a poll is open for a long period of time, but with fewer votes than expected, a deadline will be set to end the voting.

- For discussions about the Elftown competitions go to: <forum:Elftown contests>. Here it's discussed whether an entry follows the rules or not, and other complicated issues that need to be discussed in-depth.

- Please note that asking people to vote for you is against the rules. Although you may advertise the Main Street Poll in your mood, diary, or house, it is against Elftown Official Competition rules to directly ask people to vote for you or influence people to vote for you through use of public wikis, diary entries, messages, in your mood, etc.
