TIME TO HAVE A CONTEST!

Note: The contest has ended.

Note:  The contest is going to end tomorrow!  If you are working on a video, please make sure you finish it and send it in before tomorrow, Monday, November 22!  Please make sure you don’t send in videos late!

Note: The contest is going to end in a few days.  I’m not sure of the date, but I will let you know a day or two before it ends.  Please submit your videos before that day, if no one submits, I will have do save the contest for sometime later in the year or next year.

Note: I have updated the prize section, if you are doing the contest, or are interested in doing the contest, please take a look at it!  The Video Contest page has been edited, too.  I have also changed the goal section.  The change in the goal section is REALLY important, so I would take a look at it.

That’s right, Icy Comet’s Blog is proud to present its first contest!

The goal of the contest:

The goal of the contest is to see who can make the best video guide for one of the islands in Poptropica.  You can choose any of the islands to make your guide on.

To enter the contest:

To enter the contest, you must:

  1. Make sure you have read all of the instructions and have read all about the contest, and you fully understand what you must do and what the contest is about.
  2. You must make sure that your computer has some sort of way to make a video from what you see on your screen.
  3. Have fun and start your video! (But, make sure you read the rest of this post before you start!)

How we will judge your video:

  1. Is it easy to understand?  Would a six-year old child understand it?  Would a thirteen year old understand it?  We would want the guide made so that anyone who plays Poptropica could understand it fully.
  2. Is it creative?  To make your video a winner in this contest, it has to be a little different.  Maybe you could dress up your Poptropican in a scary costume in celebration of Halloween, or you could do something else, like making a title that looks like a rainbow at the beginning.  Don’t go over the top, but have a little room for creativity.
  3. Would it actually help someone complete an island?  If you make a guide, don’t have one part missing, or everything be out-of-order,  make sure it would fill its purpose and help someone who wants a guide on how to beat an island in Poptropica.

Sending us your guide:

Once your guide is completed, you can email it to us.  Probably none of you know our email since it is new.  Our email is icycometsblog@gmail.com.  So, if you want to send us your video, just send it as an attachment, and we will look at it as soon as possible.

Now, for the part you have all been waiting for, the prizes:

We will have a prize for first place, and then we will have two runner-ups.  The prize for first place would be either a new account with 1,000 credits on it, or I would buy a game card for Poptropica and I can email you the code so you can activate it.  If you win this prize you can email me and let me know which one you want to do.  The two runner-ups prizes’ would be they each get an account with some islands completed and with one, two, three, something like that, cool costumes.  I don’t know what islands would be completed and what costumes you would get, Super Thunder is in charge of this prize.    Lastly, the first place video and the runner-ups’ videos will all be posted on the Guides page, underneath the island that they are supposed to be under.

If you win, your prizes will be emailed to you.  Remember to check both your inbox and your spam box when you enter the contest, just so you won’t miss the fact that you won the contest.

I’m thinking of having this contest last about 3 weeks, maybe longer or shorter.  It depends on how much work there is for everyone involved.

Well, I hope you like this idea for a contest.  Later, I will make a page about the contest, so people can still read about it when the post becomes un-sticky.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment!

By the way, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  2. Um, Icy Comet, I think you misspelled this phrase:

    If you have any questions or suggestions, fell free to leave a comment!

    I think you said “fell free”. I think it’s supposed to spell like this: “feel free”.

    Icy Comet: Oops, you are right! Thanks so much for pointing that out, I will change it right now! 😀
