Hello Elfpackers and welcome to the Originality Contest!
The point of this contest is to try and enter the most unique, create and innovative creation you can. There's two categories, Photography and Writing.

Contest Rules (General)
- Submissions shouldn't be too inappropriate.
  - No porn! Nudity or general sexual themes are OK, but this contest is not made for erotic viewing or reading.
- No copyrighted submissions! All submissions must be made by you.
  - A friend may help you, but only the person who uploads and submits the work will be credited should they win.

Contest Rules (Photography)
- Follow all general contest rules!
- You may not submit more than two (2) entries.
- Old photos are allowed. (We'd rather see new ones, though.)

Contest Rules (Writing)
- Follow all general contest rules!
- You may only submit one entry.
- Submission cannot be over 650 words.
Thank [HeAVenShallBuRN] for the increased limit!


Winners will be selected by the Elfpack members from the selection the Council presents -- the number of selections will depend on the total number of entries.

The single entry that gets the most votes out of Photography and Writing will be declared the Grand Winner. 

In addition, a third winner will be selected by the Council, named the "Crew Favorite".


(The only important part, right?!)

For entering this contest, you will be able to select one normal (Not rare or unique!) Giffie-Pet of your choice to be your pet. (However, you cannot have more than one pet!) (Giffie-Pet Store)

The Crew Favorite will receive the "First Place Contest Winner" badge. (<URL:stuff/epcontest.gif>)

The Winners (One from each contest) of both Writing and Photography will receive both the first place Contest Winner Badge in addition to being given an Exotic Giffie-Pet Ticket, enabling them to choose an Exotic Giffie-Pet of their choice as a pet.
(Find the exotics in the Normal Pet Storehouse. You can also use this ticket for any normal pet, or give it to a friend of your choosing.)

The Grand Prize winner will receive the first place Contest Winner Badge in addition to either having colors enabled in their house OR getting a Unique Giffie-Pet of their choice. (Unique Giffie-Pets)
(If you wish, you may give the house-enabled colors or the Unique Giffie Pet Ticket to a single friend of your choosing.)


The polls are closed!

The Grand Prize Winner is [Yudan333], with her entry <URL:>

The winner for the writing entry is [Sicarius] with Mara Gibson-Tales from Faell--Contest.

The winner of the photography entry is [Cerulean Sins] with <URL:stuff/148659_173185259376113_100000539214969_496404_6079554_n.jpg>

2011-07-11 [Stephen]: I think it looks good. :3

2011-07-11 [Yudan333]: im finding more pics i want to use XDD now im so indecisive!

2011-07-12 [Stephen]: Oh, for any entrants who are wondering, all prizes are given away once the contest has concluded and the winners have been selected. So that's when giffie-pets will be handed out.

2011-07-12 [LinkTurrner]: I love how you put the thanks to Jimmy on there

2011-07-12 [Stephen]: =D

2011-07-12 [Yudan333]: XD agreed SSS ^^

2011-07-12 [kittykittykitty]: Oooh yaaay a contest! Interesting theme <img:shadN-gif.gif>

Btw, is that a unique giffie-pet, or a rare giffie-pet you're giving to the winner? :P The 'rare' pets are the exotics (Normal Pet Storehouse)

2011-07-12 [Cerulean Sins]: What is you already have a pet on your house, what do you win then?

2011-07-12 [Stephen]: The grand prize gets a Unique or Colors.
The "winners" get the rare/exotic pets. (I wasn't sure which title for them was correct.)
Everyone who enters gets a pet.

[Cerulean Sins] - Well, I imagine you can change the pet for one you'd like more, but otherwise you get a badge and can transfer the pet to a friend (if you are a winner, not for entering.)

2011-07-12 [Cerulean Sins]: Ahhhh I see :) Thanks [Stephen], hun ^^ I might change my pet for the panther cub ^^ I'm more of a cat person than a bat person lol :D

2011-07-12 [Stephen]: You're welcome. =)

2011-07-14 [LinkTurrner]: oh gosh I just noticed I don't even have a pet xD

2011-07-14 [Stephen]: Enter and get a pet. :D

2011-07-14 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Why do people keep changing this page XD

2011-07-14 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I did enter!

2011-07-14 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: So....where be my pet?

2011-07-14 [Stephen]: 2011-07-12 [Stephen]: Oh, for any entrants who are wondering, all prizes are given away once the contest has concluded and the winners have been selected. So that's when giffie-pets will be handed out.

Read the comments! x3

Kitty edited it to make it more clear, then I edited it to make it even more clear. xD

2011-07-14 [kittykittykitty]: You edited to make it more clear, then edited to fix your grammar mistake! Silly! :D

2011-07-14 [Ihsahn]: I think the winner should get both colors and the pet, the runner ups choose either the pet or colors, they have 2nd and 3rd place you know.

2011-07-15 [Stephen]: Grand Prize: Unique + Color + Badge
First Places: Unique or Color + Badge
Crew Fav: Exotic Pet + Badge

Sound right?

2011-07-15 [Ihsahn]: No not really, sounds a bit more complicated then it should be.

2011-07-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Well..I was half AWAKE >> stil am...wait always am!

2011-07-15 [Stephen]: xDD

2011-07-15 [WonderTweek]: Maybe I'm just stupid but I'm a little confused to what the theme of the contest is for photography.
Being creative and innovative makes sense with writing, but for the photography, are you supposed to take a picture and have the picture itself be creative and what-not, or are you supposed to take a picture of something that's creative?

2011-07-16 [Stephen]: Either/or? =p
The entries are all judged on the overall level of originality and creativity, so the more the better. :)

2011-07-16 [WonderTweek]: Ahh alright!

2011-07-16 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Hai Adon :o

2011-07-16 [WonderTweek]: Oh hai!

2011-07-16 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: how are ya?

2011-07-16 [WonderTweek]: Tired, getting ready to take a trip to SD, you?

2011-07-16 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: bout to head to bed after I leave work

2011-07-16 [WonderTweek]: Ahh, hope you sleep well.
I'mma head out of here, gotta get ready to go!

2011-07-21 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I find it strange, as many people as we've had sign up for this thing...not many have entered teh contest.

2011-07-21 [Stephen]: I'm hoping we get more. :)

2011-07-21 [LinkTurrner]: me too

2011-07-22 [becca21]: I will submit soon

2011-07-22 [Stephen]: Good. :)

2011-07-28 [Deg]: Sooo...what are the prizes, exactly? o.O I mean...I sorta already have a pet, so...what would be the point of entering? I'm going to anyways, I'm just sort of wondering haha.

2011-07-28 [Stephen]: Well, you could replace your current pet with any normal pet of your choice. Otherwise, you don't get an entry prize.
You can still win donor rights (color) / badge / unique pet / rare pet though. :P

2011-07-28 [Deg]: Oooh, okay. Well that'd be okay then I guess, haha. A new pet wouldn't hurt. :) Just wonderin'.

2011-07-30 [---Blind Spot---]: i should check this out

2011-07-31 [Stephen]: Yes, you should :D

2011-08-01 [Stephen]: Okay, sorry about that people.

2011-08-01 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: ^

2011-08-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Check it out and VOTE Sam! or I'll...cry

2011-08-15 [Stephen]: Um, what did you change..?

2011-08-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Nothing, was grabbing the wiki doohicky to send to a friend cause am too lazy to type it XD

2011-08-15 [Stephen]: ... xD

2011-08-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Polls close when"?

2011-08-15 [Stephen]: There's no set close deadline.
Once there's enough votes to give a clear winner.

2011-08-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I see.

2011-08-15 [Cerulean Sins]: Good luck to everyone! I hope the best person wins! :D

(please note that I did not vote for myself as I see that as cheating ^^)

2011-08-15 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Me too!

2011-08-15 [Cerulean Sins]: I can see a clear winner! :D

2011-08-16 [Stephen]: The writing portion currently has three people tied for first place. x)

2011-08-18 [Stephen]: Vote for the winners, invited people! =)

2011-08-18 [Yorthanii]: what if i dont like any of it

2011-08-18 [Stephen]: Then vote for the one you dislike the least. =)

2011-08-18 [Yorthanii]: there all equally disliked

2011-08-18 [Stephen]: <img:img/mood/5_1116262979.jpg>

2011-08-18 [Yorthanii]: not tryin to be a downer or anything there just not my cup of tea

2011-08-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: >

2011-08-18 [Sicarius]: If I may interject...*clears throat*... [Yorthanii], if you do not like any of them then do not is as simple as that...that having been said, have you been drinking your own product? XD ...Sorry, couldn't resist...though in all actuality, it was Flavor-Aid, not Kool-Aid....for those of you who prefer accuracy when it comes to your referencing...

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Ya know Sicarius, there's no reason to be a smart ass so bluntly, it's much more fun to hide it and have them thinking 'wait...what?'

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: haha very funny and as you may notic there is no hyphen (-) between kool and aid thus not really refrencing the refreshment directly, but as everyone thinks its because i "drink alot of Koolaid-Aid" not exactly, i dont really drink it, so more or less to answer your question no, im glad you think that the internets is a place to show off how smart you are to behind a keyboard, i can look up big words on google too :)

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: oh im not going to vote for them, i was invited looked thorugh them all and decided against voting due my own reasons, thus i stated once before ^

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: Actually, [Sicarius] is pretty smart.

And yes, I invited [Yorthanii] along with about 700 other members to this page. I invited all the members who had been active within the last 2 weeks to this page. ;)

Anyway, enough bickering! You can chat, but don't bicker on official pages.

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: im not bickering im gettin asked stupid question, and just stating my opinion is that so wrong?

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Mkay enough drop teh subject, now, before Ist art cleaning these comments up

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: so now automatically i cant defend myself? because someone thinks im being negative? im done with this, [Stephen] thank you for the invite good luck with the contest...peace

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: No, no.
I'm not saying don't defend yourself.
Just do it without throwing insults at one another.

You're free to stay, and validate your opinion to others' if you feel the need, I just don't want people throwing insults in the process of doing so.

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Exactly what point I was getting at, I do not want drama here either, and I'm sure no one else STEPHEH can we just...hide comments please?

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: lol
Nooo, we can't just disable the comment box. If things got too out of hand, we could delete comments, but the ones from before weren't bad enough to warrant deletion.

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: T hat's why I didn't delete them...if it got one more step out of an insult being flung out? even if it's a yo mama, gone

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: xD

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: heres the thing i felt disrespected by said comment so thus i throw an insult, yes it was an insult ill admit, and frankly idc, i understand its a contest and your trying to get people to participate which is great more power to you, but as i did not start this little bickering drama match i dont really see how i can be put on the chopping block for insults, people ask stupid questions there gonna get a stupid answer. Also others commenting on acting like i have no knowledge at all, really? you dont know me so dont assume...assumption is the number one starter of arguements and drama. you can delete all you want, "OMG oh no you deleted my comments im so mad grr" like i said before i dont care, treat other how you want to be treated i think thats the motto...

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: You're not on a chopping block, don't worry. I explained most of this in the private message, so there's not too much to say.

There's no official Guard-warnings being given out, so no one's in trouble. =)

Your comments have no reason to be deleted right now.

Comments like "Fuck you, you retard" are deletable, but not things like this. xD

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: AND, if you wish to insult someones mother.... elfpack Jokes

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: I use logic and reason, not ignorance and tom-foolery

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: your mother is a 2 bit whore, <==== not directed towards anyone just wanted to say it

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: ...we have one for that too! or...we did >> questionable jokes

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: And btw, clearly you're degrading MY mother, SHE WAS A THREE BIT WHORE!

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: excuse me 3 bit whore

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: *nod*

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: uh sure?

2011-08-19 [Stephen]: *chuckles*
Yes Bás, I completely remade the Jokes pages so they're simpler. ;)
I wasn't fond of the layout, it was far too complex for a simple submission.

You should submit to Jokes, xKooLaiDx. That'd be awesome.

2011-08-19 [Yorthanii]: nah im good trolling is funner

2011-08-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I don't troll on here anymore, I've got a council position.

2011-08-19 [Sicarius]: ...Trolling trolls is waaaay more fun... XD ...and Bas, don't lie...(just kidding) :P

2011-07-28 [Deg]: Sooo...what are the prizes, exactly? o.O I mean...I sorta already have a pet, so...what would be the point of entering? I'm going to anyways, I'm just sort of wondering haha.

2011-07-28 [Stephen]: Well, you could replace your current pet with any normal pet of your choice. Otherwise, you don't get an entry prize.
