December Daily Doodles

When: December
What: a holiday-themed month of fun and frolics, a new contest every weekday for a month
Who for: everyone
Who by: Apollo

It's about to start again, and once more I've got a busy month ahead for you! Every weekday, at or soon after midnight PST, I will post a creative contest. Most of these contests will be forum-based and will require entries the same day. At the next midnight, I'll close one contest and announce the next one. There will be a variety of prizes during the month and they won't be pre-announced.

There will be multiple forum threads for this event. This thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes. I will then open a new entry thread each week.

There will also be weekend events, and those will be posted separately.

One weekday per week will be a tournament day. I strongly suggest you don't ignore these. The top prize in each will be a familiar.

>--------------------<

The general rules for the forum contests are as follows.
-- Only one entry per player in each day's contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the month.
-- You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of your entry post. Make sure you use the pirate and ocean for which you would want to receive a prize.
-- I will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Unless I've made a serious booch, I'm not going to be answering questions during the day. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
-- The entry thread is going to be busy enough without chat. Keep the entry thread just for entries please!
-- The general rules on avoiding tasteless or offensive material apply at all times on this forum but I'm mentioning them again here just in case.
-- Judging will be completed as soon as possible after the contest has closed, and barring illness, certainly within a day of the contest closing. I will post the winner and the prize in the following post once judging is complete. At any one time, therefore, there is likely to be one contest open for entries and one contest being judged.
-- I'll be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when I feel I need them. There will be lots of events, though, and I'm not going to get into discussions on the judging on any individual event.
-- I will try to deliver prizes myself as I announce them.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes. Lots of people participate, and only a few win prizes. Take part because it looks fun, it's an interesting challenge, and it's an opportunity to share your quick-fire skills with your fellow players!

>--------------------<

That's it for now. Look for the first weekend Doodle just after Midnight on Saturday, and the first Daily Doodle just after Midnight on Monday.

>--------------------<

If you're interested in how the Doodles work, take a look at last year's contest, or the inaugural 2005 edition.

Investigate finding the following:
  • a microphone
  • a digital camera or scanner
  • a link to Artpad (http://artpad.art.com/gallery/)
  • a link to Artrage or equivalent (especially free download version!)
  • a drawing / art / paint package that you're comfortable with


    *bounces*

    DOODLERS FTW!

    Will these familiars be of the colored kind?

    I believe familiars awarded last year were themed to be green/lime/red/maroon or some combination thereof.

    Yay!

    Also, will there be a tournament for each drinking, swordfighting, treasure drop and rumble at the same time each week on each ocean or will it just be a single parlor game each week?

    It feels like that now, but when the doodles begin, we'll be wishing for more hours in the day to complete the entries :P!

    p.s. That is an awesome fruitcake!

    Hooray for the Doodle Master! Yes, Apollo, that's you! I just had a thought. Wouldn't it be super-duper if there was some sort of raffle for those who enter each and every daily doodle(hard to check the tournament ones though) to win a familiar? Meh, probably more work than its worth for Apollo and his elves. So, will this weekend start the weekend doodles or must we wait for Monday?

    Yarr! I've entered the doodles both years but I have never managed to enter every single one.
    I promise to enter the Daily Doodles, every single day, no matter what else may be more important - doodles will come first.
    Wooooo!

    /e cheers enthusiastically

    I wanted to do all the Doodles last year, and didn't get to. This year, I'm going to try to do them all. :) If I have to sing, you'll all just have to be aware that I'm not particularly good at it - I recommend a large amount of rum before opening any singing entries from me.

    Now I just hope the Doodles start tomorrow, not Monday, because my crayons are freshly sharpened, and I'm rarin' to go!

    I also think that would be incredibly exciting. Spin off idea: Each winner of the doodle gets a raffle ticket and a name is drawn from the winners for a familiar. I would also volunteer to be an elf and spreadsheet all entries.

    EDIT: I squealed when Domo told me Doodles were coming! The doodles themselves are exciting!
