The last year has been a heck of a ride for all of us. We’ve been locked down into our homes, scared of this pandemic, but we keep in fighting and we’ll keep doing this until things get better. And what I really like about this forum is that, no matter what, our creativity and imagination was never gone. Yet, it has always been here. So there’s no better motto for this year’s contest than…


JUST KEEP SWIMMING!

This post is for the details so you can start thinking of your concepts and answer some questions you may have.

As in we must include all of the stated details or does it have to visually look exactly like that format?

Also, are we allowed to include Battle Badges?

That’ll be good but if you can’t do it, I just want it be easy-to-read.

They are surpluses and not necessary. You won’t lose any point but you won’t gain any either.

Is trial team really necessary? I’ve never understood the need to put them in concepts so I just roll a dice and assign characters a random trial team. Does that work or is there some rule for it?

5 Likes

For consistency with the previous unlikely concepts you’ve made or to add onto a preexisting franchise in game. For example, a Toy Story character concept you make would have to be in the Blue Team as the in game characters are.

I’m not affiliated with the judging of contests, but I thought I’d link Pawpsicle’s very handy text formatting topic to make it easier to follow the formatting.

There’s not a special rule for the trial teams except from franchises already in the game like @Commander-Rex said.

Fun! I hope I can make a concept in time…

So we have to do a concept that fits the theme? Or can we do any concept?

Anything you won’t. Just make sure you follow the rules! Show your creativity and imagination!

Are we allowed to make our own topic for submissions?

That’s the way it will be this year. You create a new topic for the concept and you’ll paste the link in the submissions thread.

So can I use my own format? It’s a bit easier that way and I’m sure you can read it. :slightly_smiling_face:

You can but it has to include all the informations of the format above.

I haven’t been making a concept for a long time. I might consider going back making one

Am I allowed to get help on the concept(s) I submit beforehand? Like in my concept preview PM and things like that?

Good question.

Would it also be possible to give us some more time since we can submit 2 concepts?

1 Like

The requirement actually confused me like do they post earlier before the event started or just posted the same copy?

1 Like

Both. All concepts must be uploaded within the time limit of the contest which is highlighted above. Concepts out of this limit, won’t be acceptable.

You can get INSPIRED by your previous concepts, if that’s what you ask.

Unfortunately, that’s not possible cause the results must be out till April 21st, the World Creativity Day. It’s my fault that I didn’t started this earlier.

I worded this wrong. I meant, am I allowed to get help from others for making my concept?
