EDIT 1.1: The first entries are already in! (See bottom of journal)
My fellow deviants! I have an important announcement to make!
Today, April 24th, marks the seventh anniversary of the very first appearance on deviantArt of a very special little Werewolf, when a WIP was posted of a drawing that, four days later, was posted in full on this site.
To commemmorate this momentous occasion, I have decided to launch a contest, which will also be featured on the place that has since become a second home - of sorts - to this little Werewolf, namely the World-of-Aiers. The contest, which will run until July 8th 2015, will mainly feature, but not be limited to, Pumori the Half-Were.
However - who is this Pumori person?
The answer is not easy. For reasons unknown, multiple Pumori's appear to exist, spread out over multiple universes.
For the first years, Pumori was a lone half-werewolf girl, living in the forests of a forgotten fantasy world. The daughter of a werewolf father and a human/elf mother, she had a human body but werewolf legs, tail and other traits, and acted very much like a wild child, erm - wolf.
Then one day, Pumori fell into the universe called Aiers, created by Shabazik, where she encountered a Barbarian adventurer... and she all of a sudden started having adventures - many of them.
At a certain point, however, a different Pumori came into being - a Pumori who encountered the young prince Falco from Jorden, the universe in which Walt-Marsters' stories are set, and who as a result became a warrior in this prince's army, reluctantly at first, but eventually a lot more enthousiastically so.
Perhaps most confusingly so, though, Pumori - or versions of her - also sometimes happen to pop up in situations in which she is least expected. Sometimes she will interact with characters set outside of 'her' main universes; sometimes she will feature in one-off situations.
For this contest, your entry must be set in Pumori's world, as featured in the works of myself ( kanyiko ); Shabazik or Walt-Marsters. Basically, you are free to create any work of your own, drawn, painted, written or otherwise, as long as it clearly involves either Pumori or her family or companions.
Basically, you can almost do as you want - draw a Pumori set in her own universe, or in a universe of your own; draw a character of yours interacting with, or adapted to Pumori's worlds... almost anything you want. However, there are a couple of limitations:
- Your entry must abide with the general terms of deviantArt. Any work which breaches this will be disqualified. Violence and/or gore are allowed, but only if they are part of the story, rather than violence/gore for violence/gore's sake. Be sure to tag any submission as mature if it contains such material!
- You can not use characters of movies, animation, games, published books, roleplay games, etc, unless you are the original creator. If you plan to use a character that is an OC from a game or from a (fan)fiction, it must be adapted to the submission/story rather than carbon-copied from its original setting.
- Parodies, or usage of styles or genres are allowed - as long as they remain relevant to the contest.
Some examples of work which is allowed:
Crossroads -- an Unusual Bog StoryCrossroads
an Unusual Bog, Bogilla and Pumori Story
Bog and names and concepts of Aiers belong to Shabazik
Pumori and the "Arrowbird" and "Chained Wolves" concepts belong to Kanyiko
The concept of the "Helreign" amazons belongs to Remnantcomic
This is a story where the characters have been taken out of their familiar time and place. They have different roles and live different lives in the Modern era of Aiers. Perhaps these are the descendants of the heroes we know, or perhaps this is an 'imaginary story'?
Bogilla sat on the steel frame of the 'roller-ladder' under the overhead of the truck stop's 'fuel island'. It was still cool, but the air was humid and promised uncomfortable heat before even noon under the Anglosecuarnian sun. The lithe teen girl wore a thick Tee shirt--that was more comfortable than wearing a bra. She didn't want her breasts to be pressed against sweat soaked cu
Entries to the Contest
The entries MUST be posted on deviantArt itself. Any entries posted on other sites (personal blogs, tumblr, facebook, elfwood, furafinity, etc, etc) will be disqualified. Entries must be done specifically for this contest, and must have been created between the time this journal was posted and the time this contest ends.
To make an entry, you must post a link to the entry to this journal; thumbs of the accepted entries will be added to this journal.
The entry must be an entirely new work, done for this contest. Entries which are part of series that were already running before the contest began will not be accepted.
The contest will be held from the 24th of April 2015 until the 8th of July of 2015, and the entries can be send anytime between this time. The contest cut-off will be 23:59 PDT on July 8th 2015 (07:59 UTC, July 9th 2015). Entries submitted beyond this point will not be accepted.
On the plus point, this gives you about two and a half months to work on an entry for the contest!!
Winners, judges and prizes
Your entries shall be done for the Honour and Glory of the Great Pumori!! Worship her!!
But I guess that you will also want some prizes for yourselves, the entrants.
To determine the winners, I, Kanyiko, shall be the sole judge, rather than using polls, votes and juries.
There will be prizes for:
- The Main Place for the most awesome, mindblowing thing ever. This prize will be a three-month membership, or the equivalent amount of points, as well as an artwork by me, kanyiko, and a free request from Shabazik
Additionally there will be 'second' prizes for the following cathegories:
- Drawings/illustrations/paintings/graphic work in general.
- Narrative for the best narrative - either story or narrative added to a drawing.
- Originality. Surprise me.
The winners of these shall receive a drawing to their own request. Shabazik too may draw some drawings related to the entries -Pumori and friends- as well as a prize for one or two of the "second" prizes.
Attention! Unlike other contests, every entry can win in one cathegory only.
As well, I make a call and ask for people, that are willing to "donate" prizes to make the contest more interesting -such as requests and such- to please do so! If you are willing to help, you can choose to which prize you would want to "cooperate" - thank you in advance!
So all that's left to say is: many thanks in beforehand for anybody willing to be part of this contest! And if not, many thanks for reading and ignoring this journal!
Any questions, try to contact me in the chatroom of the world of Aiers chat.deviantart.com/chat/World… or send me a note in dA, or ask your question in the reply section of this journal
Bye for now, and good luck!
