ESKPLORERS



:new: The event may have ended, but the inspiration has not! Check out the featured photos taken during this event and remember that inspiration is all around us!

Find your inspiration!

Can you find inspiration for esk characters around you? During this activity you will have an opportunity to earn points for taking photos of inspiration material for character designs, and winners of this activity will be able to use the nature features, objects, or environments as raw materials for new esk MYOs! Photographs that are not of crafts or artwork do not normally earn points, but during this activity you will be able to submit original photographs to receive AP and enter into raffles for prizes. 
This is intended to be a short, low-pressure activity. We will have a larger, story-driven event in June. We hope you have fun eskploring!

 IMPORTANT!

:new: Please remember to read the rules, all photo entries need to be of NEW photography. All pictures must have been taken between May 5th-May 19th.

Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U!  Activity rules

• Entries should be original photos that you have taken during the span of this activity. Please do not re-use old photographs, part of the goal of this activity is to get up and actively seek new ideas in our surroundings. If you have personal circumstances that limit your ability to do this please contact us, we want to make sure everyone can participate.
• Submitting stock photos or any photos that you did not take personally will not be tolerated. Original photos only!
• Photos must clearly depict the intended subject matter. We do not expect everyone to be professional photographers but the image needs to be reasonably clear and in focus. Blurry, distorted, or unclear photos cannot be accepted.
• Photos should not prominently feature humans. No portraits or selfies, humans can be present in the background only.

Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U!  Try to think creatively about how an accessory can be integrated into an esk's form beyond simply wearing something like a garment
Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U!  Accessories that are overly anthropomorphizing may need to be reviewed; contact the TWWM team if you have any concerns.

Title your entry with a name for the accessory and the category



Original forms

Reply here with links to your entries!
Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! Almost anything can become an esk, just follow your inspiration!
Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! You can submit plants, animals, fungi, rocks, or objects.
Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! Please do not submit pictures of humans! That's kinda weird.
Title your entry with a name for the original form and the category
If you photograph an original form it does not need to be that exact form, it is simply a representative of the species or type! With objects we think it would be fun to follow the form more closely, but with animals/plants/etc you can use the species as a representative and not an individual (for example: if you photograph a male lion at a zoo, you don't have to use a captive lion as the original form, and you don't have to use a male lion). Contact us if you have any questions!
