Winter Creative Competition 2018: Candle
« on: December 13, 2018, 11:12:20 PM »
Creative Competition: Candle

It's time for another of our regular creative competitions, where we challenge members and friends to come up with the best creative response to a particular theme! This winter, the theme is that of a/the CANDLE. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!



The rules are as follows:
1. Produce your entry. It can be a game, artwork, story, poem, recipe, sculpture, dance piece, music, whatever - any sort of creative response to the theme.
2. PM your entry (or a link thereto) to Jubal, and post in this thread to say you've put your entry in. Entries that don't have both the post and PM in will not be considered, and you must not post your entry publicly during the contest (so as to ensure judging is name-blind).
3. Each person is allowed up to two entries.
4. Entries must be in by 23:59, December 31.
5. The judges will score each work out of ten on two grounds: how good a response to the prompt it was, and how well executed the result was.
6. Winners will be announced by January 15. All entries will then be posted in a public showcase.



PRIZES

Main Prize:
1x Key for TALES FROM WINDY MEADOW by Moral Anxiety Studios
1x Key for ESCAPE FROM BIOSTATION by Tusky Games
1x poem on a topic of your choice, by Jubal

If you'd like to donate a prize and thereby sponsor the competition, please get in touch :)



THE JUDGES

Jennie Rigg
Hailing from Yorkshire, Jennie is a notable Doctor Who fan, especially of the Third and Sixth Doctors, and knows the works of Terry Pratchett backwards (and possibly also forwards, though that's unclear). She also has a love of horror and a fondness for the works of Tolkien. Her website claims that she has precisely 104 interests, which include Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Flimsy Moral Standards, Big Stompy Boots, Wankel Rotary Engines, Proper Beer, and World Domination.


Alice Baillie
Dr. Alice Baillie is a scientist, singer and songwriter; her research is in plant development, though she also maintains an interest in scientific outreach. As a musician she also forms half of the traditional-folk duo Two's Company, on vocals and flutes, writing traditional style folk songs as well as performing traditional classics. She is also a keen craftsperson, enjoying everything from sewing projects to glass painting.

In.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Thanks guys, Tusky and CG's entries noted :) (I'm assuming Penty's was as usual not in fact serious since I haven't had an accompanying PM!)
