Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Competition. =)
This one's going up a little early, since I've got an errand to run this morning. I'll be posting the updated leaderboard when I get home later in the afternoon. There's still plenty of opportunity for people to stage a comeback, especially if they put some effort into doing creative challenges, and in particular creative challenges with bonus points on offer like today's.
As we previously mentioned in the main competition blog for this month, I'll be posting a new blog each day with a set of challenges. While each day will be different, every day will have at least 1 trivia question, and 1 creative challenge. With all of the challenges, you'll collect points just for having taken part and having had a go. Obviously you'll be getting more points in the trivia contests if you actually get it right, and there'll also be bonus points awarded in the creative challenges for people whose efforts are particularly memorable. Being so bad that they're good qualifies as "memorable", so don't worry if you're not at drawing if an art challenge rolls around. ;)
So without further ado, here's today's challenges!
Okay, so the last couple of days have been relatively easy. Here's a slightly more obscure one for you to challenge yourselves with. ;) Name for me a currently syndicated in Japan manga-ka who has drawn and published ero-doujinshi of their own syndicated manga series.
Trivia answers should be PMed directly to me, and not posted in this blog. You only receive 1 chance to answer each riddle, so be sure of your answer before sending it in!
Correct responses to today's trivia question receive 5 points, less 2 points for every 2 days after this is posted (ie. 3 points from Day 11)
Incorrect responses to today's trivia question receive 1 point. Yes, that's right, you get points just for taking part!
For today's challenge....there is no challenge. Well, kinda. Today is a special bonus day. Pick a creative challenge from any of the previous days in the contest, have another go at it, and post the new one here. Your entry must be different to the creative challenge entry you gave for the previous day, you can't just resubmit the same thing. If that day had bonus points on offer, you will NOT have the opportunity to earn bonus points with the submission for today. Apart from that, the rules will be exactly the same for the submissions as they were on those previous days.
Creative responses should be posted directly to this blog. Unlike the trivia challenges, you may modify your entry as many times as you like, or until the system no longer lets you edit it anyway.
Creative challenges are challenges of creativity and not of skill. Points will be awarded based on your ideas more than on your skill at executing them (ie. don't worry if you can't draw or write well, you can still get big points!)
Memorable responses to today's creative challenge will receive between 3 and 5 points (at our discretion)
Anyone who has "a reasonable go" at today's challenge (again, at our discretion) will receive 2 points.
If you have any questions about today's challenges, please post them here.
Good luck everyone!
