Sneak Peek: WCF 2012 Olympics!

Post by Dragonclaw on July 18th 2012, 09:49

Hey everyone!


WCF will be hosting its own 2012 Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, starting the 27th of June, 2012, the day of the Opening Ceremony! We will have tons of contests and competitions for you to participate in! Here's a sneak-peek:

Contests:


There will 4 major categories of contests: Graphics, Fan-fictions, Photography, and Video. We are not disclosing any requirements or criteria for the contests at the moment, but here's a brief synopsis of each so you can already start preparing and training!

Graphics
We will host many contests over graphics for the 2012 Olympic Games! Graphic contests will include contests for banners, wallpaper, and more!

Fan-fictions
We will host several Fan-fiction contests - compete and prove your writing prowess among the best writers on WCF.

Photography
We will host several photography Olympic Games!
Note: Each photography contest will require 2 entries of the same picture. However, while one picture should be your "competition" photo, the other must be of a photo of the exact same photo location, but must also include a "peace" sign made with your hand. (Further details soon!)

Video
We will have one Olympic Game in the video category. The theme is free-choice! At the start of the video, please either show or say your name (on WCF). Videos that do not include your name in the beginning will be disqualified.

Further Game-Related Info:
We'll give more information starting on Olympic Week, which is Monday June 23rd! The 2012 Olympic Games will officially start Friday June 27th! Each competition will have a category and criteria/theme to compete in!




Prizes, Judging, Miscellaneous


Prizes
Each contest will have different types of prizes for the winners. There will be Games for WP, AP, apps, and gift cards! Winners in competitions in the official Games (after Opening Ceremony) will also receive medals that will display on their profiles and account. Very Happy Winners in pre-game events (before June 27th) will not receive any medals, but will still reap in prizes!


Judging
The Judging panel will vary for each contest. Judging panels will vary from the Reviewing Team, to the Staff, to our very own Tech Team, and yes, even you will get to be a judge for the contests!


Cheating/Plagiarism
Cheating and Plagiarism will not be tolerated in the Games of the XXX Olympiad. Consequences for cheating will result in the following:
1. Disqualification from all Olympic Games.
2. Fine of up to 100,000WP (yes, you can go negative)
3. Rank of Shame will be attached to your profile for all to see!




Gift Card Drawing!

To start the games off with a blast, on the day of the Opening Ceremonies, we will be drawing a user to win a $50 gift card to any store of their choice! The winner can choose for the card to be mailed to their residence, or they may choose for a code to redeem online! On Monday June 23rd, all members active within 24 hours of that date will automatically be entered into the drawing. If your account is not active during that time, you will not have another chance to enter the drawing. Your kit accounts will not be entered into the drawing.

We will have an even bigger gift card drawing later on in the Olympic Games. Stay tuned!

Special thanks to Shuriken for sponsoring the gift card drawing!




This is your official sneak peek into the 2012 WCF Olympic Games! Watch for the official info release on Monday June 23rd (next week)!

Train hard for your chance to win the first ever WCF Summer Olympic Games!

Most of the time, you need to upload a video to a Youtube account, then post it using this:
Code:
[youtube]VIDEO URL HERE[/youtube]

However, for the video contest, I'll open up Attachments on WCF and you'll be able to upload the file directly. This should work, however, in the event that it doesn't, you'll be required to upload it to Youtube first. I'll have a complete decision and plenty of information when the video contest begins!

Yeah, I was going to ask whether they were short stories or chartered ones Razz but I also wanted to ask: are you allowed to win more than one medal? And will events from different categories take place at the same time? Thanks Smile

Okay for photography can you enter a picture you took a while ago? Or does it have to be a recent picture? The reason I ask is because I know the locations I took the photos but it's not going to look the same because the locations have changed over time.

And can we enter more than one picture per contest or would that be considered unfair?

The requirements (criteria) for a fanfic will be released during each fanfic contest. Wink

Yes, there is no limit to the medals you can receive. Events from different categories will overlap. They may not start or end on the same days, but the period between the start and end of the contests may overlap.
For example: A banner contest may start on 7/30 and end on 8/2. A fanfic contest may start on 7/29 and end on 8/4. These are the small overlaps I'm talking about.
And I would like to add that events from the same category may also occur at the same time. For example, there may be two graphic contests going on at the same time.

It does not have to be a recent picture. However, the location must be the same or at least, the Judges must be able to tell it was the exact same place.
For example, perhaps you are submitting a picture of a forest. The picture was taken in the fall and the leaves were orange. The leaves would probably be green now. As long as the judges can see they were the same trees from the competition photo, it's fine.

You may only submit one entry per contest. This applies to all of the categories of contests.

No you do not need to include yourself entirely in the proof shot (copy of original photo). However, you do need the hand symbol (peace sign) in the proof shot to prove you took the picture and the picture belongs to you.

Yes. But only in the "proof" picture Gingy. Very Happy One of them is just your contest one, and then the other one has to have your hand in it, making the peace sign.

Awh. I guess I can't do photography then. I kinda wish I found out about this sooner, because now I can't go back to where I took the picture.

I think the wider than banner is, the better. (: I'm not sure of the exact size, but the current banner would be a good bet. Razz And remember, the banner has to be related to WCF Summer Olympics! Cat Wink
