GREETINGS IWAKU! We are going to be testing out a contest with REAL PRIZES to give out to our awesome members. If this contest goes well, we'll be hosting a series of contests in the future! They are designed with the goals of creating more content on Iwaku, or helping to challenge and exercise your imagination. The prizes this round are sponsored by Atabyte Hosting! For this first contest you will create a CHARACTER that embodies or reflects an Aspect from the Iwaku Zodiac. How To Enter On Wednesday, August 6th the submission form with automagically open for submissions. Pick one of the Iwaku Zodiac aspects to use as your character inspiration. Fill out the COMPLETE CHARACTER BIO with your character. You can add more information if you want to, but you must fill out the basic requested fields. You can only submit the form ONCE. So make sure it's finished and ready to send. You can only submit ONE character too! Make it a good one! You must be a registered member as of Today. This way drive-by registrations don't steal the show. You have until Wednesday, August 20th to send in the submission. The form will automagically close when the deadline is over. The Voting and the Prizes The will be TWO drawings for winners! The first will be a MEMBERS VOTE on their favorite submitted character. There will be a poll that everyone gets to vote on. The owner of the characters will be anonymous. Don't tell anyone which character was yours! The second will be a STAFF CHOICE on their favorite character. A team of staffers will go over all of the bios (minus ones that belonged to staff) and vote on their favorite character. They won't know who they are voting for either! So shhhh. And the prizes? Our two winners will get to CHOOSE between a copy of Minecraft, a $20 gift card to a popular establishment (like Steam or Amazon), OR 6 months of free webhosting with Atabyte. On AUGUST 6TH click here to submit your character! You will get an error message until the 6th! We'll post a reminder up when the form is open. :D If you have any questions, aaaask!
