Thanks for the news!

I wonder if it's open to all UO players or just Asia-region players?

Perhaps EA-Japan just got a jump the announcement, like announcing Stygian Abyss early the first time around?

I think this is held by EA Japan, and UO dev team has nothing to do with it.

But I can't find the ristriction that limits applications only from Asian shards, therefore I introduce this to you.

The 1st illust contest took very well and more applications than we expected are entered in until now. So we will extend the deadline of entering applications according to the request of some players that they need more time to complete their applications. The new and final deadline is July 13, 2009. 15:00 JST.

I should have more concretly described and shown you some concrete examples.

So, the following one could be an example for it:
"a Llama on a roof"
Posted Image

This is an example for description:
"Conditions of applications:
- A screenshot of what players create in the game (an unworked picture like a radar map art or a backpack art that makes use of items in game )"

This SS conforms to a criterion above.

But one more criterion exists: Thema should be "Gargoyle" or "The summer in UO". This SS doesn't conform to this criterion. If you created an figure of Gargoyle on your roof and made an SS of it, the SS would conform to all the criteria.

--
Sarsmi of UOSS was kind enough to introduce a tool for creating roof arts easily: Here!

Thanks to Sarsmi!

It's a really wonderful tool.

I think using this tool is accepted, but if in that case, the original picture should be drawn by players.

Another example from me.

This is just an example, including a little joke.

"A summer in a backpack"

Posted Image

This is an example for description:
"Conditions of applications:
- A screenshot of what players create in the game (an unworked picture like a radar map art or a backpack art that makes use of items in game )"

This SS conforms to the criterion above. And the design shown in the SS means "Summer" in a chinese letter. The theme of the SS conforms to one of themes of this contest:"Gargoyles", "The summer in UO".

--

Harlequin of UOSS was kind enough to make the following post and help us to understand what is needed on this contest more precisely and correctly. Thanks to Harlequin!

--

A - The theme needs to be based on any one of the following:
1) The new Gargoyle race for Stygian Abyss
2) Summer in UO
3) Things you want to see implemented in UO (items, terrain, decorative furniture add-ons etc)


B - The illustration that you submit can be any one of the following:
1) An unedited screenshot made in-game. Including, but not limited to, radar art or backpack art etc etc.
2) An illustration drawn/rendered using any graphics design/editing program (eg photoshop, maya etc etc)


C - Other requirements:
1) Must be in jpg format
2) Max resolution is 1200 x 900
3) Max file size 2mb
4) No limit to how many illustrations you submit
5) Can be done in either the Legacy client or in KR (in case the people doing screenshots are wondering)


Winning entry may also be implemented in-game or be added to the official webpage (latter applies to the Japan UO page).
