MerryModmas! If you would like to enter this contest, all you have to do is grab this base and design a Snowman. When finished, pm it to Meeki. Submissions will be judged more on concept than talent as this is meant to be fun! If you have no way to digitally design the snowman, you are welcome to print it out and use a traditional means for your design, such as crayons, pencils or markers. You would need to be able to scan it or take a picture of it to be able to enter it into this contest. We can't judge what we can't see!
While this contest is simple and fun, I must point out a couple of requirements. The rules of this site must be followed when submitting any design. Also, only one design per user may be submitted. I will be judging on January 1st.
1st Place: 1,000,000 gold
2nd Place: Prince of Thieves
3rd Place: Cheerful Conjuror
Honorable Mentions: Funniest, Scariest, & Cutest will each get a Thank You Letter for June 2006
♥ Entries will be kept in my journal since there's so many. ♥
I have a bit of a soft spot for art contests, and I've been wanting art of my friends and me for quite some time. So naturally it made sense for me to host an art contest for Modmas! Please send all entries by PM to my Sunlit Angel account so that they don't get lost in the bottomless pit that is my inbox of my mod account. Make sure to title it something like "Modmas Art Contest" or mention that it's for the art contest in the PM so that I know why you've messaged me. 3nodding And thank you val for the extra letters go with the ones I had. heart
Draw me alone, or draw me with friends! I don't have any preference on this. However, please do not draw my friends without me in the art.
The two avatars with the pink petals on the floor use the Astra-14: Sakura Breeze (the animated item), so the petals should be falling.
One thing to note on Gaidin is that the fish masks are actually his face. if you're still adding notes, it's basically just the idea that I'm chilling with little feeshy friends, doesn't have to be so cluttered or have them all, blah blah
For the outfit with the blue butterfly wings, please leave the wings off.
Welcome, one and all, to the festive days of Modmas, a celebration of goodwill to all Gaians!
As we all know, holidays aren't truly holidays unless you can hear them over the radio waves far in advance.
In that spirit, this contest sets out to find 100% original revisions of the "classic" carols which permeate your car rides and grocery stores this time of year.
All Carols must:
~ Have a Gaian focus; this includes NPCs, Admins, and Staff (Artists, Devs, Mods, FAs), in addition to zOMG creatures.
~ List the classic reference you have used so we have a tune to follow.
~ Have clear and legible lyrics / audibility- we can't sing along if we can't read!
~ Be submitted by PM ONLY to Flameinexile with the title Modmas Carol Contest - any other title and it may get lost or misplaced.
~ Be 100% original and new; NO resubmissions of last year's works.
~ Reference Gaian places / items / forums in lieu of people / creatures as their Gaian focus.
Carols may not:
~ Focus on Prommies or users
~ Have a negative focus D: No unhappy holidays here!
~ Break the ToS
~ Follow the tune / rhythm of the chosen reference.
~ Legibility / audibility are key.
~ Users may enter both contests (using the same or different modmas carols).
~ Each user may submit a maximum of 2 carols per category, but no user will win 2 places in one contest.
Written lyrics - Submission of Modmas carol lyrics via PM
~ Submission of both lyrics and a video clip of you the user singing your very own modmas carol.
~ You may ask friends to sing with you, and you may use whatever effects you like for your video but at some point during the video, your username MUST be visible for this on a piece of paper or something similar. Digital alterations to include it afterwards will not be accepted.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated, it was great to see your entries 3nodding.
As promised, everyone who didn't win one of our prizes will still be receiving a trade with an amount of gold at or above 5000 gold!
This is a super easy contest! Just draw Valenas and I together, being cute, celebrating the holidays, as friends or more (I don't care). 3nodding
Simply by entering you are guaranteed at least 5000 gold!
To submit your artwork please send Goosies Moosies (that's me!) a PM with a link to the art. Please ensure that somewhere in the title it mentions the contest!
For those of you who don't know what we are like together, which is probably most, just treat me like the loving, caring stalker and Val like the reluctant, hostage beloved. Or whatever you want to do!
Draw our sims! There's plenty of other samples in the tumblr itself so if nothing works take a quick peruse and see what you can see? Their dynamic is pretty well laid out in the story/character profiles. 3nodding
Val's Pick - + + // Aprox. value to be determined upon the letters' opening. Probably around 430,000 gold.
Don'ts & Do's
There's only a few things we won't be accepting.
Poorly photographed/scanned traditional artwork (ie: pencil sketch taken on an iPhone in crappy lighting). Basically, make sure your art is legible and nicely represented.
Banners, other graphics.
Basically anything not listed above
Any fullbody/headshot/whatever formatting is fine
Guidelines & Contest Info
Art must be 100% your own original work. (Including pixel art bases).
Every submission will receive a thank you prize of at least 5000 gold for entering, which will be distributed at the same time as the main prizes, on January 8th, 2013.
Submissions that do not meet the criteria above or which are submitted late can be disqualified at our discretion.
A minimum of 10 unique submissions will be necessary in order for prizes to be distributed (this is because as it stands there are spaces for 7 unique prizes to be handed out meaning that there needs to be some small amount of competition in order for the contest to actually be a contest.)
If minimum submissions are not satisfied, anyone who submitted artwork will receive 1 letter from the first, second or third prize category, and one letter from the themed categories/pick categories, as a thank you for participation.
Deadline for Submissions is December 31st.
Judging will take place from January 1st to January 7th by Goosies Moosies, Valenas and Pandilicious as a potential tie breaker.
Winners will be announced and prizes will be distributed on January 8th by Goosies Moosies.

4laugh4laugh Prizes 4laugh4laugh
First Place: Sumi Tribe item, and 50k gold
Second Place: Cryptic Path CI, and 40k gold
Third Place: 30k gold
Special Category - Best Cosplay: December 2012 Letter
Special Category - Best Holiday-Themed Avatar: TBD
NOTE: YOUR ENTRY MUST EQUAL OR BE UNDER A 1000 GOLD! IF IT IS NOT YOUR ENTRY WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!
Specifically I will check the Tektek once I get it or shortly after and it must be 1000 gold or under then. Since the marketplace changes constantly it is okay if it goes above a 1000 gold later on, but at the time time of entry it MUST be a 1000 gold or under!
1. Keep it (fairly) clean! No entries that violate the ToS or Gaia's Rules and Guidelines!
2. Be creative! I don't want to see the same old things for every entry.
3. You can use Prize and Joy items, but their Marketplace value is what counts, not the ticket value.
4. Try not to use too many items from a single set. Variety is and being clever counts!
5. Winners will be chosen by me and announced by 11:59 PM Eastern time on January 1st 2013.
6. I may award additional prizes to entries I particularly like at my discretion.
7. You may enter as many times as you want, but please limit it to one per 24 hour period.
8. You may use any hair or eyes from Salon Durem you want, they do not include in the cost.
9. You may use any of the basic bases available in SkinTyte: any human, elves, orcs, vampire, centaurs, imp and Zurg bases as long as they are available in Skintyte.
I will take entries until December 30th 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5). Winners will be announced by January 1st 2013 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5). Trades with the prizes will be sent shortly thereafter. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

It's that time of year again. The holiday season is upon us - a time to reflect on all our blessings and the wonders that make our lives so rich and full! One of things I always have loved best at holidays is spending times with friends and family, and reminiscing about past holiday events and happenings. Some stories are funny, others heartfelt and touching, and some are just, well, holiday horrors!
For my contest, I'd love to hear some of YOUR best holiday stories - those events and happenings that you remember as remarkable; the ones that stand out amongst all the other holiday happenings as being the most holiday defining moments in your life. If your story is picked as on of the grand prize winners, you'll score an AWESOME prize pack containing:
* A Forgotten Pages Bundle item
* A G9 Laptop item
* 50,000 Gaia gold
Merry Christmas to everyone. This will be my first year having a "White Christmas" since i recently moved to the other side of the world. I'm use to having a cold lunch by the pool/at the beach for Christmas, so we will see how i survive xD.
