WINTER CREATIVE COMPETITION: AURORA!
« on: December 20, 2020, 02:52:45 PM »
Creative Competition: Aurora

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 the AURORA, the mysterious and beautiful Northern Lights. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

UPDATE 09/01: It's been a hectic start to the year and we know folks are finding it tricky to sit down and get things done. As such, we're extending the deadline to January 30th to maximise how many entries we get in - looking forward to seeing more of them!




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, January 30.
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 20. All entries will then be posted in a public showcase.



PRIZES

Main Prize:
1x Squire Access to TOURNEY, the upcoming game by Tusky Games - including the game with DLC, Beta Access, and Soundtrack downloads, and getting to name one of the noble visitors to the tournies! As per the equivalent Kickstarter reward for more details.
1x copy of SON OF A WITCH, the roguelike/beat-'em-up by Bigosaur.
1x original song on a topic of your choice to be written by Jubal

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



THE JUDGES

Marie-Therese Sauer is an Austrian writer and poet who as founder of the University of Vienna's creative writing society has also been the driving force behind a number of literary anthology publications. As well as her work encouraging up-and-coming writers, she is known for her love of Scotland, good mysteries to solve, and the Dragon Age series.

Samuel Cook is a British geographer and quizzing nerd who once wrote so many pieces for a Tolkien journal/magazine that they had to publish a whole issue of his content just to get through the backlog. He and his formidable general knowledge have appeared on TV shows such as University Challenge and Only Connect, and he has written a three part article for Exilian on cartography in SFF world-building.
