How good are your art skills? Writing skills? Music skills? For the first time, MantleCon will sponsor an art contest. From artwork (traditional or digital), crafts, writing, music, video – anything! Do whatever you want (so long as it follows the requirements listed below), however you want! Entertain the masses, and get a reward for doing so!
There will be four categories: Best Progress, Muse, Most Original, and the Golden Theater.
Workshop submission deadline is March 31st. Edit: The deadline has been pushed back to April 5th!
The Best Progress award is given to the artist who listened intently to critique, mastered the art of personal growth, and made long leaps to better his/her piece.
The Muse is an award given to a person who didn't necessarily enter the thread as a participant, but rather as a supporter of the thread and the goal. He/she is a person who kept the thread alive with kind chatter, maybe donated something to the prizes, gave useful critique, submitted tutorials and ideas selflessly, and generally kept everyone motivated all the way.
The Most Original Art Award is given to the artist(s) who have, in a positive way, stood out from the crowd, in choice of art form, subject, style and finish.
Nothing But Mantle
The Nothing But Mantle awards are given to the works that best show the spirit of MantleCon and the Krytan civil war – from 1072 AE to 1079 AE.
Those who write in the style of a play will be eligible for a second reward special to this contest only: having the story featured during at least one of the four Golden Theaters during this year’s MantleCon!
- The theme of the work must be related to the White Mantle, Shining Blade, Shining Mantle, War in Kryta (event, not GW Beyond chapter), Mursaat, or Seers.
- Must be submitted before April 1st, 2011 (those submitted on April 1st will not be accepted)
- Be entertaining
- Cannot exceed 6,000 words.
- Last 20-30 minutes in act-typing.
- Be written as a play.
- Be reasonable with amount of characters (and actions).
All prizes are subject to change based on new prizes obtained. Additional places will be added based on amount of prizes obtained.
Best Progress – 30 Royal Gifts; 1 Royal Gift Mini Set (Salma, Livia, Evennia)
Most Original –1st place: 7 Kegs of Ale - 2nd place: 30 Royal Gifts; 1 Royal Gift Mini Set (Salma, Livia, Evennia)
Muse – 15 Royal Gifts; 1 Full Common Birthday Mini Set (Jade Armor, Mursaat, Seer)
Nothing But Mantle – Full Oppressor’s set for HoM (110 Medals of Honor - see note)
Golden Theater – Featured during MantleCon; 1 Everlasting Unseen Tonic
Note: For the Oppressor’s weapon set for the Hall of Monuments, the winner will choose the attribute for the staff, focus, shield, and wand and which kind of bow. Weapons will be given one by one inside the Hall of Monuments for dedication; the prize is for the HoM, not to sell to others. If there are the weapons in the HoM already, the winner will be given another reward deemed equal by the staff based on how many oppressor’s weapons that are in the HoM already.
