NOTE TO ALL ENTRANTS: THERE IS MORE TO OLD HOLLYWOOD THAN MARILYN MONROE!! Do some research, find something interesting, or little known, and surprise us!
_______

First off, apologies - things have gone nowhere near the timeline they were meant to, mostly because this has been the first challenge causing... logistical difficulties , and because college started and suddenly the concept of "free time" became somewhat alien. Hopefully the next theme will go a little more smoothly!

Exceptional Awards!

As much as writing as much guff as possible in order to keep you all in suspense is an appealing idea, it would probably be mean... so without further ado, and in no particular order, the three most Exceptional entries to the Ancients Challenge!
(And remember, it may not match up to the poll results...)


For an absolutely gorgeous recreation, with some beautiful texturing; made all the more jaw-dropping by the fact that she has been solely a clothing creator in the past:
The Parthenon: by Phaenoh!

For a very useful and absolutely beautifully made set, which opens up realms of new possibilities for pyramids and the like:
"Egyptian Temple": by -Maylin-!

And finally, an absolutely breathtaking piece of work, with great attention to detail:
The White Rose Of Rome: by MaORiLiCioUs7!

Huge congratulations, and thanks, to the creators of these three uploads - which were not only chosen for their quality, but also for the exceptional effort put into them: and special mentions also for Tatiana Dokuchic and iamliz13, whose work was far and away some of the best
And, of course, for everyone else who entered - we've had some fantastic entries, thankyou and well done to all.

Prizes!

Everyone who entered the challenge, will get
  • A trophy icon on their profile page
  • A trophy object for their game

Trophy Icons
Everyone who entered the challenge now has a trophy icon on their profile - Right underneath their name and avatar. Those who won exceptional awards have a special gold icon. You'll get a new icon for each challenge you enter - gotta catch 'em all!

Trophy Objects
Those who entered will be PM'd with a link from which they can download the trophy item. If you lose the trophy for any reason, the link will still be valid so you can redownload it.
You earned this trophy! It is yours, please do not redistribute it to others. That takes the excitement out of the whole affair and is not overly sportsmanlike.

Winners of Exceptional trophies will have personalised trophies emailed to them in a few days. Use the time to make sure the email on your profile is still valid!

And finally...

The next Creator Challenge!
This time round the theme is Old Hollywood, we want to see glamorous dressing rooms, Marylin Monroe, and the Sparkly Red Dress. Be creative!
The Old Hollywood download section is here.

Remember, if you need more information on the challenge rules, process, or winnings, click here!

Get your entries in before 15 Oct - sooner is better!

Now get creating - and have fun!

The winners certainly deserve all the praise and cool stuff they are going to get. I was floored by many of the creations.

Masterofallvideogames; yes - as long as it is Old Hollywood related, go for it - so not the favourite football team of the time, but maybe the actors who partrayed them in The Cheesy Movie, etc .

SimBliss, well, that's the point of these challenges - to try out something new. Give it a go!

I can only agree, totally agree with this contest result, it must have been really a pain to decide the final Exceptional Creations since they all deserve a special prize. My congratulations to these talented members! You all rock!
Kiss and ciao

(btw, the participation prize makes me so proud!!! isn't it lovely? thank you MTS2 stuff, very honoured )

Hah! I can breathe again. I'd been holding my breath since I posted my entry! Glad that is over. I have the feeling I'm going to have trouble outdoing myself this time. I gave myself a hard act to follow. Maybe I'll just recolor some paintings this time around... Thanks Delphy and Numenor and Echo and Whiterider and everyone else behind the scenes. You guys make this site a fun place to be!

EDIT: When's the due-date for Old Hollywood?

Congrats to everyone who entered -- I was pleased with everyone's efforts, including the efforts of those who didn't necessarily expect a big prize, and still gave it their best efforts.

I think that everyone who got something posted to the area is a winner.

It's out? .... Do the three of us get the regular trophy too? I'm confused by my lack of PMs and/or emails...

Yeah, I triple checked that post beforehand, and from what I can tell everyone who enters is supposed to get the thank you showoff trophy. But then I never got a PM about it. They said the email with the other one will come a few days later, to give us time to get our email in order, so that one I'm not concerned about yet. I'm just highly confused about the other one.

Since a mod is eventually going to read this, I might as well ask the other question on my mind, I assume the prizes are going to stay the same from contest to contest, yes?
