Help support Ferisae's cause, which is for all Latin American fans to be able to experience the Symphony of the Goddesses. (The minds behind it are ready to go, they just need to show Nintendo and the production company that there is support!) She's done an incredible interview & interview video with the Symphony's producer and conductor, which you can find in English here: melorasworld.com/zelda/thefore…

If you work for a Zelda site, or have a Zelda-centric blog, please post about it and please urge more fans to join the facebook page and to sign the petition:

Otherwordly Symphony by Ferisae

Even if you haven't realized it yet, you already know and love her art and her enthusiasm for Zelda: on top of that is this interview, which means she's already gifted us so much. Spreading word is such a simple thing to do in return. Fans need to do what we can for each other. If you choose to help~ then thank you from the bottom of my heart! You make me proud to be in this community!

I mean, look at how inspiring this is! From the interview:
"We keep saying to everybody to write to Nintendo. Nintendo does listen to its fans. They do, and they do care, and showing that they care for the fans is us doing what we are doing. It’s not for financial reasons or anything like that, it’s a gift. Just tell everybody, write to Nintendo." -Symphony of the Goddesses Conductor Eimear Noone

Hey guys, I’m hoping I can have your support and help with another cause. Recently one of the creators of the Zelda series (Aonuma) stated that he would be open to giving Princess Zelda a playable role if enough people have “strong feelings about it.” Well, I do and I’d even be happy if they just gave her a more befitting role for a ruler with the Power of Wisdom and the Gods at her disposal. So I created a Facebook page for it and would love it if you joined and if you spread the word about it. Just like with the Hyrule Historia push we made: I believe we can make this happen. Here's the link, please share it with your friends: www.facebook.com/NintendoPleas…

And please join!
Let’s absolutely shock them with how many people want to see this happen.
If you would like to download it: hit download on this entry, unzip it, and then just print the pages out!

A PDF version has been added here: historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2…

EDIT:
I added the blank template, and all of the entries at a size that fits within it, so you can make  a 2013 calendar with any of your favorite pieces from this year, and last year's, event. ( That's over 250 pieces to choose from!)

:thumb346161211:

Find everything for that here:
-- The Blank Template Download on DA woodland-mel.deviantart.com/ar… or the Off-Site Download: www.filefactory.com/file/3d274…

-- All the entries for the 2012 event: "Music Festival" theme historyofhyrule.com/fanworks/0…

Thanks again everyone, it was spectacular. I hope your New Year is an amazing one and don't forget to join us for this next year's contest soon!
You can find the same info in this submission/thumb but I also want to post it out in the open, in a journal here :)

:thumb342118293:

:star: Please go here to read more: historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2… That post has A LOT more information. I would highly recommend checking it out before commenting on anything. :star:

Everyone was so great, please join us at History of Hyrule historyofhyrule.com for the event next year, so we can have an amazing 2014 calendar as well!

Links to the "winning" pieces can be found here historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2… and below, you can find most of the DA entries in the group's contest folder to the left, but every single entry is actually in this flickr set: www.flickr.com/photos/historyo… Please check all of them out. You'll be able to make your own version of the calendar using any of them; so it can contain all of your favorite ones!

I also hope to be doing a follow up post on that blog where I talk about the other amazing entries that also could have been included on the calendar. There were so many deserving ones. But... each and every one of the artists involved only deserve positive feedback; everyone did an amazing job, and these picks were extremely difficult because of that. These are only the results based on my, (and another judge's,) final decision. If you disagree with me, don't take it out on any of the artists. These were my choices, not theirs. I ultimately wanted this contest to be about encouragement. I know 99% of you are awesome and that this hardly needs to be said, but; I know not winning is incredibly discouraging, but please avoid leaving public comments on any of the entries saying someone else should have been picked for one of these spots. If you want to tell someone you feel they should have won over someone else, then consider that notes and email may be a kinder option. Thank you for understanding! ♥

***
I'll be making this into a downloadable calendar as soon as I can. (I'll edit it in to the submission I posted the thumb for, and I will be posting it on historyofhyrule.com) It will be ready before January 2013. I'll announce it in my journal, in this group's journal, and on History of Hyrule's main site historyofhyrule.com when it's ready.
