Official MTS 2017 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 landscape or build/decor picture without sims representing the "feel" of a particular month. Have the living room decorated for Christmas? Take a picture! Have a pumpkin patch to visit for Halloween? Take a picture! 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. (If you enter twice, you need to submit two different posts)
2. Only 15 entrants per month. Please no place holders. Each spot is only filled once the picture, that meets all the rules, 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 and for Sims 4, please go here.
8. REMEMBER: This is a PG-13 Forum! Your entries may not include adult content, pornography, or other inappropriate content.

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, ModYourPanties, etc
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.
5. If you want to do two entries, you need two separate posts.

Duration/Time Period
The contest begins November 1st, as soon as this is posted. Contestants will have until November 30th 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 and Scoring
Judging will be done by a panel MTS Staff and these are the things that the panel will be looking out for when entries are judged.
  • Theme - Does your picture represent the month you chose?
  • Creativity - Originality of idea
  • Style - Use of space, props, is it pretty?
  • Rules - CC adherence, no editing, inclusion of month

Prizes
A sticker for both winners AND participants, like these.
A calendar will be made for download with each winning month.
And, of course, the blue ribbons for each month’s winner.

Questions
Q: I already entered 2 separate months for TS3. Can I compete in the TS2/TS4 calendar as well?
A: Yes, you may. You're more than welcome to submit for all the contests, giving you 6 chances to win!

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.

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.

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

Hi, quick question: You said "The picture should be a landscape or build/decor picture without sims". Does this count for animals too - like, can we have cats and dogs in the background - wildlife etc or STRICTLY no living things?
Thanks!

@TotallySimsCrazy Lovely image but it's the wrong size. It needs to be 750x1000 pixels.

@KingTre Great image but it has sims in it. This year the picture should be a landscape or build/decor picture without sims representing the "feel" of a particular month.

@Letcupcake I'm afraid photo editing for TS3 is against the rules - I cannot allow your entry, sorry

I have a question, given that I've never entered a contest here at MTS...can someone explain what this part in particular means?

3. CC is allowed. However, please make sure to follow MTS rules for CC; no pay content.

What is the "MTS rules for CC" and by indicating "no pay content" does that mean we can't include items from the Sims3.com store?

Thank you for the clarification.

'Pay content' is CC that you have paid for or donated money to get content. Content from the Sims 3 store CC is allowed even if you have paid for it. Please see the Creator Guidelines for more information.
