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.)

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
