Spring Contest 2014

Postby mauwie » April 21st, 2014, 2:23 am

✿ Spring Contest Twenty Fourteen!! ✿


The snow has finally melted and flowers are starting to say hello from their long underground slumber. Spring is finally here and a new contest is blooming into action. It is time to add new elements to your garden by making or decorating. In this spring contest, you will only be able to pick one of the two options provided below, so choose wisely! Please take your time to read the rules carefully, failure to follow them will result in disqualification. If you have any questions post them in this thread or PM Siegj or myself if you have an idea you want to remain secret. Don't hesitate to ask, we will answer all questions!


Option one:
Crafting wind chimes
Since the wind has picked up and it is gradually getting warmer it is the perfect time of year to get decorative and let the wind play that melodic sound in your garden. If you have a lot of random objects around your house and like to let your visual and musical creativity flow than this option might be just for you. Wind chimes can range from elegant and graceful to festive and fun. You will be judged based on your creativity and visual presentation. You are allowed to use any items or objects (pipes, string, hangers, beads, etc.) you wish, your material pool is endless. Take as many pictures as you need to show off your entry!

If you need a reference of what a wind chime might look like, click here. Keep in mind this is only an example, yours will look different.

Contest rules

  • You cannot take a set of existing wind chimes and decorate them. They must be made from scratch.
  • Your wind chimes must be completely created by you and you alone.
  • The wind chimes must be able to hang (show this in your pictures).
  • An image of a Pokémon must be included somewhere on your craft. If your entire wind chime is the body of a Chimecho, that is fine too.
  • You can use official Pokémon images, VirtuAdopt images or those created by yourself.
  • A name tag must be included with your username and the word VirtuAdopt in your picture. It cannot be digitally added afterward.
  • If you have been banned at any point during this contest you may not enter.
  • You may only have one entry.

Option two:
Decorate your own flower pot
Spring hasn't truly sprung until all plant forms start to come to life. It is that time of year to start getting your hands dirty and filling your flower pots with seeds that will grow big and fragrant. Though flowers are pretty, the main focus of this option is the pot the plant sits in. For this task you must decorate a flower pot, again, with any medium you so desire. You can paint it, mosaic it up or even use buttons. Your options are endless and there are no limits to the size and shape of your flower pot. You will be judged based on your creativity and presentation. As said before, take as many pictures as you need to show off your newly decorated pot!

If you need a reference of what a decorated flower pot might look like, click here. Keep in mind this is only an example, yours will look different.

Contest rules

  • Your flower pot must be physically decorated by you and you alone.
  • A plant does not have to be in the flowerpot, however it may earn you points in presentation.
  • An image of a Pokémon must be included somewhere on your flower pot.
  • You can use official Pokémon images, VirtuAdopt images or those created by yourself.
  • A name tag must be included with your username and the word VirtuAdopt in your picture. It cannot be digitally added afterward.
  • If you have been banned at any point during this contest you may not enter.
  • You may only have one entry.

Your hard earned efforts will be rewarded with the following prizes drawn by Nautilus and UkeSora!

Do we get the Pokemon by just sending an entry that looks decent or do we have to win it?

Jeannes.Thinkin, your entry will be based on a scale of qualified, good and best. Depending on how good your entry is will determine how many promos you will get in the end. If your entry is absolutely fabulous you will get all three! Though beware, if we see not much time or effort is put into a project that person may not receive a prize at all. I would suggest looking at past contests for reference.

Crafting a wind chime IS SO WHAT I WANTED TO DO already in the last crafting contest and already had all the materials, but I'm so into flowers that I decided to do a flowerpot... and, my neighbours would kill me if I'd put a wind chime at my window. :P
