Blizzard has opened their annual Holiday Card and Holiday Dessert contests. The Desserts contest is kind of an edible version of their Halloween Pumpkin contest; sculpt up some interesting cake icing and take a pic. The Holiday Cards are kind of like digital scrapbooking; create some holiday-themed fan art and fit it into the provided template, creating something that can be printed out and presented as an actual card. Here’s a quote from the Holiday Card contest:
- Holiday cards must be based on the Diablo, StarCraft, or Warcraft universes—or all three!
- Cards will be judged for originality, design, humor, and/or holiday cheer.
- The file that you submit must be less than 5MB, but don?t sacrifice quality by over-compressing your image.
Check back after the contest is over, as we’ll be making the winning entries available for you to send as e-cards to your friends, family, and loved ones this holiday season.
Check out last year’s winning Desserts and Cards if you want some inspiration or idea of what you’ll be up against. The winning cards were all over the place in artistic quality, so this isn’t as tough as their regular fan art contests. It’s more about the theme of your card and coming up with some clever Holiday tie-in. All of last year’s winners were WoW-themed, so maybe one of our talent Diablo community artists can break the Wowcraft stranglehold this year.
All winners score a new mouse, keyboard, and headphones from Razor, plus and a Collectors Edition of WoW:Cat and SC2.
