PostSubject: The APOCASTLE Contest!   Sun Apr 07, 2013 9:44 pm


The TFOL Forum's Apocastle Contest



What happens when apocalypse and castle COLLIDE! For the TFOL Forum's first big contest it's up to you to decide the future... or maybe the past?

In the future... the apocalypse came. Technological degradation came soon after. Roaming the streets are knights with trash armour, shields made out of old car parts and crowns of rusty tins, in an apocalyptic environment or in a regrown one.

Or, perhaps, the apocalypse came in the middle ages. Here, there can be priests preaching about apocalypses, some dark wizard making apocalypses, assorted medieval types surviving apocalypses...

It's up to you to decide.



1 - The contest runs from April 7th until April 30th. Any entries posted after the 30th will not be eligible.
2 - Your entry must be a new topic in this subforum (Current Contests). Your topic's title must start with [APOCASTLE] or else we will not recognize it to be an entry in the contest and the entry will not be judged.
3 - There are no size limitations on the entry.
4 - Multiple entries are allowed, but if so you will have to choose just one of your creations for judging (if you do not choose, the judges will choose the most recent entry).
5 - Brickarms, brickforge, brickwarriors, etc is acceptable but clone brands and Megablocks will lead to a possible removal of the entry from the contest. Also, the modification of LEGO pieces is acceptable as long as the original piece is recognizable or mentioned.
6 - Your entry must have some connection whatsoever to the broad category of Apocastle. Apocastle is defined as a combination of apocalypse and castle, as described previously.
Use your imagination, but it needs to have a connection to both themes, rather than simply being one or the other.
7 - Judges are not eligible to enter the contest, but other staff members are.


There will be three judges in the contest.
The judges will score each eligible entry from 0 to 20 with the following criteria:
x/6 points -> Quality
x/6 points -> Creativity
x/4 points -> Uniqueness
x/4 points -> Relation to the category

Your judges are:
- Deus
- Ru
- WE NEED ONE MORE JUDGE. IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING AND IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN JUDGING PLEASE SEND BEN OR DEUS A PM.


If there are enough entries to the contest, there will be REAL prizes generously provided by Deus! First, second, and third place will win trophies, and perhaps also LEGO sets for first and maybe also second places.

There will also be e-prizes! To be announced later!

More details will be announced about the prizes closer to the end of the contest.

---

Can't wait to see all the great entries!

Thanks!

Question, does it have to be the end of the world? Or can it be the end of a group?

Hey, I just cleaned up my room and now I'm going to dump LEGO all over it because of this contest. Thanks a lot Ben!

I'll join! Can we start building now or do we have to wait until the seventeenth?

Also, if the first place does not like the trophy, he or she may exchange for one of his or her own choosing - he or she may also change the winning set for second place's. Second can change for third, if he or she so desires.

Think I might join in on this. Maybe it'll break my block on System. Does it matter if we post our creations elsewhere before the judging?

I may or may not have problems with judging, due to inaccessibility of internet.

You need to have started building it only on April 7th or after.

No, but the limit is 1 MOC eligible for judging. You're allowed to enter as many entries as you want. But you'll have to choose one to be judged.

Sadly- like some others- I don't think I will have the time to put a decent enough entry together. I really wanted one of those trophies too :1

Sorry about that.
