    • Each entry must be in a "backpack" style bag.
    • You may enter as many times as you like, as winners will be scored on merit.
    • Entries will be judged in 2D, so we suggest you create your work in Legacy client.
    • Once you have created your masterpiece, contact either Cymoril or Digger McTaggart by ICQ (Cymoril 8-239-243, Digger 371-105-650) or Stratics PM with your contact details, or look for us in game!
    • Entries must be submitted to us in game by end of 9th February to be eligible.
    • You must advise us if you would like your entry returned to you at the completion of the contest.

    • An impartial judging panel will determine the final winners.
    • Voting will be available on this Stratics forum from 10th-13th Feb, and the three winners will be determined from the top five voted here.
    • Entries will be scored and judged based on creativity/originality, relevance to theme and overall effect.
    • All entries will be judged in 2D, so we recommend designing your masterpiece in 2D.

    <font color=red>W</font color=red>hat is Bag Art?
    For those who aren't aware, "Bag Art" is the art of arranging items in a backpack to create an artistic effect, such as a picture or scene. You can use any UO items to create this. Coins and gems work well for colours, but you're not limited to "dot" drawings. Below are some examples, taken from a previous Stratics Contest (see here for more).

    Remember this contest is for Valentine's Day, so we need Valentine's Day Themed designs! Winners will be announced in game after the Conjuring Olympic Event (14th February, approximately 7:45pm) at the Olympic Arena in Malas, and posted on Stratics afterward.

    So what are you waiting for? Get designing now!</center>

    I'd forgotten about this, then realised today is the 7th, so only a week til Valentines day, so only a week to figure somethign out!

    And I just packed all my stuff up and moved into my castle, so I have no idea where everything is yet! But I kinda have an inkling of an idea tickling around at the back of my brain - hope it will work!

I won't have ICQ access tomorrow day, as I'll be working, but feel free to send me a PM here, or contact me tomorrow night for any last minute entries!

    Just to update on this - the purpose of putting the voting up on Stratics was to narrow the judging down to the top five as voted. Because there are less than five entries, the Stratics voting is redundant [​IMG]

    So the judges are tallying and will have the results ready for Thursday Night (they will be announced and awarded at Conjuring Olympic Event).

    <font color="purple"> Thank you everyone and another big thank you to OPEN for hosting another original event.
    Katlene had suggested that I craft an entry of someone getting stabbed in the heart and having roses shoved up their nostrils but alas, I just couldn’t get the yarn in the right position, oh well.
