Spring Deco Contest 2018 (A player run event)
We are following a simular structure to the usual contest.

Hello, we are launching a house deco contest beginning today. All players are welcome to participate, please read the rules below.

The theme for this deco contest is:
Spring with a twist (as long as is in keeping with the spring theme you can add a twist to this and be creative - for example a country cottage/holiday abroad/or just a nice story or something personal to you)

Houses should be decorated to the stated theme while being as creative and imaginative as possible, a few random items thrown on a previously decoed house will result in you being disqualified as effort and creativity for this event is what we are judging.

You will be able to choose which judging bracket to participate in however please read the below carefully and choose accordingly

Group 1
This bracket is meant for players of modest means, newer players

Group 2
This bracket is meant for players of wealth, older players

*NEW* Legacy House
This is a bit of fun and a chance to show off your main house or something creative/awesome you have made which isn't in keeping with the above guidelines - so if it's interesting and you want to show it off drop in a rune (you can even enter a house if you have 1 in the main deco contest, no rules in this group other than its just awesome or fun to show off and some effort has gone into making it, this one will be judged by the peoples vote) IMPORTANT - MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR RUNE/BOOK/ADDRESS CARD IN A BAG SO WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE, *Just a disclaimer - a good amount of effort must of gone into making/creating this, a premade house or one with just a few odd decos thrown on it won't be considered (unless the premade house has been made into something truly special)

Raffle
As part of the legacy voting every player who casts a vote will be entered into a raffle to win the amazing pond deed raffled off in trinsic, voting will be done by writing your name in a book and dropping it in the voting box provided

Rules:

* Please mark a rune in a location that's accessible near to the plot within 10 tiles - If submitting more than one plot they must be combined plots. (make sure the plot is open to the public)

* The house must be owned by the person who signed up.

* One entry per account. Any attempt to circumvent this rule will result in disqualification.

* Deco must be shard-appropriate, and the theme must be in keeping with the guidelines above with exception of the legacy house (see guide)

* Although this is a player run event we expect you to be polite to staff & each other, anyone whom we discover is a rule breaker may be disqualified


Judging

Will be done by a large silent panel of anonymous players (with exception of the legacy bracket)

House location will not be taken into account when scoring the properties. This is decoration only and clever creativity and attention to detail is what will be scored

If you are disqualified for any reason you will not receive a participation reward.

Voting will take place 12th - 18th March


To enter the contest:
Mark a rune close to the house you will be decorating for the contest. You may submit the rune at any time within the above dates - even before your decoration is completed. The houses will not be judged until the end of the contest. Deadline for submitting your entry is the day before judging begins so drop it no later than 11th March,

(IMPORTANT please put your rune in a bag with the book to tell us who you are and any relevant information to help, also add an address card so we can post you your prize - we will provide an address book vendor at the shopgate, if you don't know what an address card/book is [pm culichi/chrysanthe so we can assist you) JUST TO STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF PUTTING ALL THE ABOVE ITEMS IN A BAG OR WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ENTER YOU

Drop your rune/book with relevant info of who you are and theme info if needed/address card in the shop gate inbox relevant to the bracket you are entering (there are 3 inboxes so pick the right one and read the books!)

Decorate your house, complete it and make it open to the public before 11th March

At Contest's End:
On 11th March, the runes will be collected and gates to the houses will be made available for the public to visit the participants' submissions via a shop gate open for 1 week - This will be the same shop gate you used to enter except we will place a house to house gate to the plot with the entries gates.

Prizes:
- First, Second, and Third in the spring deco bracket will receive a prize. Everyone will get a participation prize
- Prizes will include a banner for each winner (top 3 in each spring category).
- Exact prizes to be announced at a later date (closer to the end of the contest).
- The legacy prize and raffle voting will be separate to the main contest


And lastly most importantly have fun and look forward to seeing all your entries :)
