    In the spirit of Christmas and in anticipation for Ultima Forever, Ultima Gallery is running a Christmas Art Contest. I thought it would be fun to get everyone’s artist vibes going and see what we can get from what I know is a lot of talented Ultima Fans out there!

    The Brief
    Draw a Christmas scene with one major character from the Ultima series and their family on Christmas day. This could be the meal, opening presents or something you think the British family would do on Christmas day.
    The scene should include your main character of choice, at least one other member of their family and at least 1 of the 8 Ultima virtues in the form of a symbol, word or played out in the scene you draw.
    Some examples of characters you could base your scene on are:
    Lord British
    Lady British
    King Blackthorn
    The Gypsy

    The Rules
    The piece of art can be hand drawn or done digitally
    It cannot be rude, vulgar or include something that is considered not suitable for PG13
    One entry per person

    How to Submit
    Submissions will be accepted from November 16th until Midnight UK time December 3rd.
    They will be displayed on Ultima Gallery within a few days of submission ending with no names attached.
    You can upload your artwork via Ultima Gallery by going to this link Upload Images. You do not have to be registered to upload.

    When you upload please press theSet Photo Properties link to add in the author Name of the picture and a description. In the author section add a name and an email address so that you can be notified if you are a winner.When images are published there will be No Author or Email attached!

    There will be 3 winners selected from the entries based on the best star rating. If there is a tie breaker A special judge will be called in to make the final decision. No names will be posted with the artwork.

    The prizes are the choice of 1 of the 8 virtue cards signed by the original artist which have been generously supplied by Ultima Franchise Producer Jeff Skalski. The cards will be posted to the winners by Jeff. Arrangements to be made after the contest.
    The winners will have their choice of card with 1st place choosing their card first. You can view all the virtue cards here Ultima Gallery/Ultima Forever/Virtue Cards

    The default theme for these forums is light text on a dark background.
    Wherever you're copying the posts from, it's including wizardry to apply a non-default font colour, which is almost unreadable on the dark background.

    This can be rectified by editing your post, selecting all of your post in the edit box, and clicking the pink and white eraser image in the upper left to remove formatting.
    It'll remove colors, bold, italics, underlines and strikethroughs, so you do need to be mindful of other formatting if there is any.

    After much thought I have come to realise that there is no need to end submissions so early in December and so submissions will now be accepted until the 17th of December an extra 2 weeks!
    So lets see that artistic side of the community!!
    Contest Details!
    Thanks everyone!
