UPDATE: Winners announced and all entries listed with screenshots below! Thank you so much to everyone who entered!
As we enter the season of Winter, one of my favourite things to do is to cozy up on the sofa in slippers and a blanket, drinking hot cocoa while watching animated movies and cartoons. This was the inspiration for my first ever housing contest, Animated Architecture!The theme for this contest is builds and homes inspired by animated movies and cartoons.
Disney, Ghibli, Dreamworks, Pixar, you can draw inspiration from almost any animated film or series! Maybe you'll build a pineapple under the sea, cobble a mechanical moving castle, or decorate a sea witch's underwater grotto?
You can use homes of any size, and previously built homes are accepted provided they have not won any contests previously. Homes that are entered into other housing contests running at the same time are also accepted.
(The only limitation we ask is that builds are not overly gory, or too adult in nature.)
The homes/builds will be judged based on the following criteria;
TO ENTER, SEND AN INGAME MAIL TO @Nordenheim1 on PC EU OR PC NA.
You must include your ingame UserID (@usernamehere)
, which home you have used for your build, and a title for the house.DEADLINE: Monday 3rd January
Entries will be judged by Nordenheim, Elara Northwind
and special guest judges StabbityDoom
The entries will also be toured on stream by Nordenheim on Wednesday the 5th of January. This contest is open to players on PC NA and PC EU only, as we are only able to provide prizes for PC. That said, if anyone would like to share any builds on Console, you can film a short a video of this (3 minutes maximum) and I can show this on stream, though there will be no prizes for console players.
EHT may be used for this contest, but we advise using it minimally; the build should stand on its own two feet, for visitors that do not have EHT installed. Trigger animations will not be allowed for this contest.
The prizes for this contest are as follows;
First prize - 3 million gold and 15 crown crates
Second prize - 1 million gold and 4 crown crates
Third prize - 500k gold and 1 crown crate
In addition to these prizes, the top three winners will all have individual tour videos of their builds filmed by Elara Northwind and uploaded on YouTube!
I can't wait to tour some incredible animation-inspired builds on stream!PS: Houses I have previously toured are still eligible for entry, though there should be some noticeable changes. Happy building!
