We were so impressed by the entries for the Holiday Contest, and we have
some romantic prizes to give away, so we thought we'd follow up with a
little Valentine's contest!
This month, love will be in the air as many celebrate Valentine's Day, (or
"Single Awareness Day", depending on your point of view ^_-). Crispin has
played many a heartthrob, and because we know how creative you guys are, we
want to see you put your skillz to the test!
The object of this contest is to create a valentine that might be sent from
one character to another in one of Crispin's many titles! When we came up
with this idea, we instantly knew that you guys would have fun with this! :)
Here are the rules and details:
1) The valentine can be in the form of fan art, cut-out collage, photos, a
love letter, or poetry.
2) At least one of the characters involved, either the sender or the
receiver, must be a character Crispin has played. The other character (or
characters) could be anyone from any Crispin title. (Yes, a character in one
show can send a valentine to a character in another show.) The valentine can
be romantic, friendly, (or maybe unfriendly, if from a villain!), funny or
casual in nature. This is where you get to have fun and role-play from a
character's point of view!
3) Art, collage or photo valentines must be submitted to the "Valentines
Contest 2008" album in the Photos section of the fansite. Just click the
Photos link on the left hand side of the fansite to get there. Final images
should be JPEGs and should not be larger than 100k in size. If your
valentine has a front and an inside, like a card, please title both of your
images the same, but at the end of your title, add "Front" or "Inside".
Please make sure you put your name somewhere in the title or caption of your
image(s), then post to the fansite and let us know that you have uploaded
4) Love letter or poetry valentines can be less than but should not exceed
2,000 words. Please upload your entry as a plain text file to the
"Valentines Contest 2008" folder in the Files section of the fansite. Just
click the Files link on the left hand side of the fansite to get there.
Please make sure you put your name somewhere in the title or description of
your file, then post to the fansite and let us know that you have uploaded
5) You may submit more than one entry if you wish, although one really good
entry is much better than many that are just "so-so". Please try to have fun
with your entry and make your best effort! Entries that are creative, cute,
clever or humorous are more fun for everyone to enjoy!
6) Entries that are offensive, discriminatory, or pornographic will be
disqualified. We are shooting for a PG rating out of respect for our varied
membership. Please keep this in mind when designing your entry. Also, out of
respect for Crispin, please no valentines addressed to/from him personally.
Only his characters. Thanks!
