Official MTS 2012 Calendar Contest: The Sims 3
Use your creativity to showcase your sims in a shot fitting for each month of the year. The picture should be a scene with sims in it representing the "feel" of a particular month. Have the family gathered for Christmas dinner? Take a picture! Beach party in June? Please use northern hemisphere seasons.

Rules
1. 1 picture per entry. You may only enter a month one time but may enter 2 separate months.
2. Only 15 entrants per month. Please no place holders. Each spot is only filled once the picture has been submitted.
3. CC is allowed. However, please make sure to follow MTS rules for CC; no pay content.
4. Pictures must be 1000 (width) x 750 (height).
5. No photo editing.
6. When posting your picture, please make sure to include the month it belongs to.
7. Sims 3 only. For Sims 2 version, please go here

How to Enter
1. Pick a month and take a picture to represent that month.
2. Upload the picture to any image host - Tinypic, Photobucket, Flickr, or ModYourPanties
3. Start a new post on this thread - click Go Advanced, and you can click the little "Insert Image" icon in the toolbar, or just copy-paste the image location into some [img] tags. Make sure to include which month your picture is for.
4. Submit your post - doing so will submit your entry.

Duration/Time Period
The contest begins December 1st, as soon as this is posted. Contestants will have until December 28th to post pictures. However, if a month fills up before that date, that month will be closed for new entries and judging.

Contestants
15 per month maximum

Judging
Judging will be done by MTS Staff

Scoring
Theme – 10 points Does your picture represent the month you chose?
Creativity – 10 points Originality of idea
Style – 10 points Use of space, props, is it pretty?
Rules – 3 points CC adherence, no editing, inclusion of month
This is 33 points x 3 judges will be a maximum of 99 points per entry.

Prizes
Each month in 2012, the corresponding winning image will be posted in site news.
Also, a calendar will be made for download with each winning month.
And, of course, the blue ribbons for each month’s winner.

Chat Thread
If you don’t get a spot in your month, or want to post for more than the allowed amount of months, or just want to chat about the entries, please post in our Chat Thread!

The picture you post will be your final shot - make it good. Posting a random picture of a christmas tree, easter bunny, yourself, etc to reserve a spot is not allowed and it will be deleted. If you want to post pictures like that, please see the chat thread linked above.

Once your post has been added to the table, it may not be changed. Do not change the picture, you may not delete it and enter a new month instead, etc. If you choose to delete your entry, you are removing yourself from the contest and no further entries will be permitted from you.

If anyone is notified that they have used pay content, their entries will be disqualified. The spots they had will NOT be held.

Luckk - your picture is 1000x700. You wouldn't happen to have an uncropped version to resubmit (1000 x 750), would you?

Luckk, the picture MUST be 1000x750 as stated in the rules. I asked if you had uncropped so you could then crop to the correct size rather than trying to resize and distort what you had. Sorry for the confusion.

Okay, I figured out what was wrong. The first picture was accidentally 1000x700 rather than 1000x750 (Don't know how I missed that). When you asked for the uncropped I thought you meant the original. I never resized anything. Sorry for that. It has been fixed.

Yay, sorry about that. Confusion on both ends! Updated the contestant table now.

Just out of interest, if there end up being less than 15 entries for each month, will we be able to enter more photos because I have got many!

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

I don;t know if this goes into the chat thread or not, but I really think this contest needs more publicizing. Like, sending a PM to all members or more news or a publicizing thread, idk... Advertisement in general

Majuchan - your picture needs to be 1,000 x 750. Right now it is 1,024 × 768. Please resubmit with the correct size. (Just edit your post and change the image).
