Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's Means of Transportation Contest!
Please read the [#THEME] before entering!


The Rules


Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist.
Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no drawings on lined notebook paper
- no bad scannings of your drawings
- All pieces must be new, made for this contest. That means you may not submit a drawing/photo/poem you have made before this contest or one that was submitted to another (official or unofficial) contest already.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured. They also have to have some kind of background (preferably to show the mounts/vehicles that are ridden/driven in Elftown!) Sketches will not be accepted.



To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

6. SUBJECT MATTER: Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

Any entry that does not follow the above will be removed.


Theme and deadline

What will we be expecting?

You must show the means of transportation you prefer to use in the roads of Elftown (with your race of choice driving/riding it) Exactly what do Halflings use when they have a heavy load to carry and what would a Duck prefer to visit their family in the other end of the town with?
-Creatures and Races that aren't available in the profile choice are accepted!
-We want both the mount and the rider! Which means however nice the image of your fairy carriage might be, we need to see the fairy using it as well :)
-Please try not to use normal means like Real Life cars, carriages and non fantasy horses (pegasi and unicorns are ok though!)
-Flying/teleporting etc although handy, don't qualify as means of transportation (although you can use a flying creature as your mount if you want).

DEADLINE: 9 March 2008

10 art pieces will be picked out by the Council and Assembly among all those presented. Mainstreet polls will determine the winner for each category.

Art Participants will receive a squirrel badge, and Art winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building if they are commited art donors).

2008-01-02 [Jitter]: *bongs self on the head* Right... I opened the contest and forgot to make it free for all access o_O Thanks Lami *hugs*

2008-01-02 [nehirwen]: yay, no denied access anymore ^^ haha

2008-01-03 [Synsae]: ok, so... photos are allowed? or is this drawing only?

2008-01-04 [Linderel]: This is just for drawings, I'm afraid.

2008-01-04 [Synsae]: damn! oh well... good luck to those who enter then...

2008-01-12 [deRevenant]: it says in the rules that "flying/teleporting" are not allowed for the mode of transport; however, does levitation or hovering ability count as flying? i'm not a fan of "wheeled" transports, real life or i wanted to make a craft that follows roads without actually touching them

2008-01-12 [Linderel]: If your vehicle has the wings or hovering ability or whatever, that's alright. It's just that you can't be the one doing the flying yourself, but whatever mount/vehicle you use.

2008-01-12 [Jitter]: Or I guess a device that allows you to fly like this: <img:>

2008-01-14 [deRevenant]: hehe, go-go- Gadget Copter!...that brings back memories...
i digress~~ anyway, my plan was a mounted platform that worked using quasi-airship technology. i'll draw a little "pseudoform" of myself at the helm. is still acceptable idea?

2008-01-14 [Jitter]: Yeah as long as you're not actually doing the flying by yourself (like superman or a fairy) it's ok :)

2008-01-30 [deRevenant]: hmmm.....on 2nd thought, i think the deadline is not far enough away for me to create something from scratch :(
schoolwork is an unforgiving mistress, and it takes forever for me to complete a sketch {i use bitmaps mostly, its very labor intensive}

2008-02-16 [Linderel]: The deadline has now been extended with three weeks. :)

2008-05-04 [Calico Tiger]: Apologies to the two that were announced as winners. However, we are going to open the polls up once more. There will also be an alert for people who already voted to check their votes again to make sure they note the fixed entries as well as the removed entry. This will remain up until we have close to 1000 entries as per our usual contests.

Again, apologies to everyone who has been inconvenienced by this. Thanks for not attacking us, hehe :D

And thank you for letting us know mistakes in the polls!

2008-05-16 [F.T.F.O..ninjas never die]: my means of transportaion is my skate board lol

2008-05-22 [hive]: I'm still rooting for the snail!!!! Long live the snail travelers!!!!

2008-05-28 [Lord Dog]: So I still get a badge since my drawing was the one that didn't make the cut, right?

2008-05-28 [Calico Tiger]: There's 5 that didn't go in the poll, not 1! *poke pokes* And, of course! Everyone who participated gets their badges. The polls don't give you an extra badge unless it is the winner *hugs*

2008-05-30 [Lord Dog]: meant one of the ones.. remember I am usually typing with either a 5 2 or 1/4 yr old nearby 

2008-06-02 [Thistlewood]: Congrats [Kahri]!! And just a suggestion, shouldn't the winning picture be bigger than the crew's favorite?

2008-06-02 [Calico Tiger]: Yep. It's just a typo in there. I'll fix :D

2008-06-03 [Kahri]: Thanks! *squeak* my first win ever!
