First Anniversary Contest

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 23, 2016, 2:38 AM
Welcome to ForestRefuge 's big 
"First Anniversary Contest"!!

:iconforestrefuge:

Hey, awesome people.:love: Today on July 23, 2016 we have our first anniversary, and we want to share the joy with you!

The contest topic is:

"Your Childhood in the Forest."


Of course you don't have to be Mowgli from Rudyard Kiplings The Jungle Book or some kind of hermit to join this contest. ;-)
Just share some of your childhood memories with us. And tell us what the forest meant to you when you were a child.

The Rules:

  • Begin is July 23, and the contest will end on  August 13 12:00am CEST (Central European Time).
  • You need to be a member and/or a watcher of ForestRefuge.
  • You can submit 1 entry.
  • You have to submit your entry to the "First Anniversary Contest" Folder in our group gallery.
  • Allowed are Photography, Illustration, Literature and Crafts.
  • Literature has to be in English, Deutsch or Français.
  • Important is that we can see connection to the contest topic within your work. Otherwise we will decline it. So maybe think about some further explanation for you photo for example. ;-)
  • Please copy a link to this journal entry to the description of your upload. (Just copy this thumbcode in your description and remove the big R: :Rthumb623413763: )
  • Entry must have a dA submitting date of July 1 or newer, and must not currently be submitted to our group gallery.


The Judging:


After you submitted your work to the contest, you have the chance to win some really nice prizes! We choose random winners out of all people that submitted something to the contest.
That means everybody that enters the contest has a chance to win!
If you be one of the lucky winners or not, you will be *featured* in a journal after the contest has ended.


The Prizes:


The first three lucky winners will each get mail Email from Rick-TinyWorlds (The real one, which comes with the postman.) with something very special ;-)
You'll get a letter with art prints, dried leaves and seeds to grow you own mammoth trees with  - as well as some more surprises!
On top of this really cool prize you'll get some points:

first winner +700 Points
second winner +500 Points
third winner +300 Points

Fourth & fifth winner will get no letters but at least each 100 points. :-)
And maybe we add some more later on, so stay tuned. 

UPDATE: More prizes! MademoiselleOrtie is offering hand-painted postcards to 2 lucky winners :) And earrings made with accorn and felted woolcorn and felted wool for another lucky winner!
So awesome :D
UPDATE #2: Thanks to Malintra-Shadowmoon each winner will be featured on the frontpage of TandemFeatures La la la la  So cool!


We are looking forward to your wonderful and creative entries! :-) Feel free to comment below, or ask something is you have to.

Good luck wish you:

Well, I've got to know about the contest just today and immediately started drawing, but I wish I could have even just one day more (CEST time zone here too :))... Either way, will upload the drawing to your gallery as soon as I finish it. It's also quite a coincidence - my own contest (also about trees) will be closed tomorrow too. If I would'n so focused about it, maybe I wouldn't miss the info about yours...

Still... Good luck for those who made it on time!

Ok, so we're not extending the official deadline, but if you send in your entry one day later, than that should be ok. We will still accept it! Good luck! (:
