    Happy Holidays All!

    Sorry for the delay in getting this out. I've been swamped with real life and the headaches from the last contest being resolved and trying to find the best way to do the next one.

    The theme for this contest will be Christmas decorated houses. Decorators, you can submit anything you want, whether it be a room, an object, or an entire house. The sky is the limi but it should be Christmas Themed.

    A few rules:
    1. The house(s) must be in UO. You cannot use HomeBuilder or any other applications as they contain tiles/items you cannot find in game. You actually need to decorate a home in UO to make this fair to everyone.
    2. Screenshots HAVE to be of homes in UO. Real life Homes do not apply for this contest. (yes I have received pics like this).
    3. You can submit as much as you want, but you can only win once.
    4. Any entries received by a different e-mail than the one listed below will be ignored. (E-mailing them to my MSN address is a good way for me not to see them for months. I don't check that except every couple months).
    5. Late submissions will not be accepted under any circumstances. There are deadlines for a reason
    6. When you e-mail me, please include the shard you are on

    To make things easy, no need to host pics, no need to register at a Web site, just e-mail me the pics. My email is [email protected] I’ll edit them down to proper size/dimensions and host them on uohomedecor.com under the Deco Contests menu.

    ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECIEVED NO LATER THAN 11:59 p.m. JANUARY 3, 2010.

    A panel of judges will decide on the winners. If you are interested in being a judge, please reply to this thread or PM me.

    Prizes are as follows:

    1st Place: 5 million gold (2 mil if on Siege)

    2nd Place: 3 million gold (1.5 mil if on Siege)

    3rd Place: 2 million gold (1.5 mil if on Siege)

    I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and I look forward to the entries!

    Ironically, that is one of the reasons behind the delay, including RL stuff. I was hoping that the in game Xmas stuff would be out.

    Plus, i figure if I'm swamped with Holiday stuff, other folks will be too.
