Blizzard has posted news about several fan contests going on in advance of or at this year’s Blizzcon. Artists and cosplayers at the ready!

    Online Contests

    BlizzCon 2013 Art Contest

    The Art Contest is coming back! We can’t wait to see your always impressive original Blizzard-based artwork. Carpe diem — there’s no time like now to dream up your next masterpiece in the hope of having it displayed at BlizzCon (and winning some great prizes).

    BlizzCon 2013 Original Movie Contest

    We’re looking forward to screening another brilliant selection of original films based on Blizzard games. Whether it’s live action, animated, wholly digital, or a combination, we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    BlizzCon 2013 Costume Contest

    The Costume Contest makes a triumphant return! Every BlizzCon, you keep upping the ante for amazing costumes, and we’re sure this show will be no exception. As you’re contemplating what you’d like to create, keep in mind that your safety is of paramount importance—that means that any costume you plan to wear should be something that you can easily see out of and safely maneuver in without assistance. In addition, no real weapons, dangerous materials, or large motorized costumes will be allowed.

    We’ll have full details on all of the upcoming BlizzCon contests soon—including complete guidelines, rules, and eligibility requirements—so hang tight before busting out your crafting materials. Official sign-ups will start in the coming months, too, so keep an eye on the BlizzCon website.

    I’ll be at Blizzcon this year and I hope to see you contest winners there too! (Okay, not really. I’ll probably be in the press room the whole time playing/writing avbout D3X. But it’s fun to pretend.)
