Fan Costume Contest Announcement

Postby snailgameusa » Tue Aug 05, 2014 1:06 am

The BGO Team is extremely excited to announce the beginning of our latest community event. Starting today, we will be taking submissions from the BGO fan community for new designs to add to the wardrobes of Montel as in-game fashion items!


Fans can create their own designs for fashion items and submit them to our community team. We’ll put the top submissions up to a vote – that means you, the BGO community, will get to choose what new costume is selected!


Submission Period

The window for submissions is open, so what are you waiting for!

We’ll be taking fan submissions from August 5th until August 25th. Fans can submit their designs to our community team by email at bgofans@snailgamesusa.com. Submissions that meet the contest requirements will receive a special participation reward. You can get a prize just for submitting an idea!
Participants will receive 6 Montel Blessing Stones, and a special Mount Gift Pack. This special event pack will give the holder randomly selected prizes, including mount fragments or even mounts for the very lucky!

Event Period: 8.5 – 8.25

Voting Period

After we’ve received the ideas and designs from you the fans, we’ll collect the submissions that meet the event requirements and open them up for voting! Fans will be able to vote for their favorites, and invite their friends to vote for the same. The voting period will last from the 25th to the 31th. The top submissions with the most votes in the end will win!

The top two candidates will have their designs added into the game! In addition to seeing their creation come to life in Black Gold Online, the winners will receive a handsome first place and second place prize of Black Gold!

Those who make it to the voting stage will also receive a congratulatory prize of Black Gold and 10 very special Apparel Prize Packs. These packs offer a random award, with some lucky individuals getting awesome fashion items!

Event Period: 8.25-8.31


Rules for Submission:

We’re looking for some interesting new designs for the game. They should be unique, creative, exciting, and most of all – do-able. To help us make this happen, here are a few simple rules for the submissions.

1. Designs can be Steam punk, Fantasy, a mix of the two, or even your own unique idea.

2. Submissions should be a design of a whole body costume – no designing just hats, just pants, etc.

3. Submissions should roughly follow the provided template.

3a) For convenience, we’ve provided blank templates of our basic Male and Female character shapes. They include both a front and a back, in both 3D and empty 2D templates. Fans can use either template, or none, for their drawing.

3b) Submissions do not necessarily need to use these exact templates, but should include a front and back for both male and female characters, for a total of 4 pictures. Additional angles are acceptable, but these 4 drawings are the minimum required.

4. Submissions should be appropriate to BGO’s ESRB rating.

4a)No nudity, inappropriate language written on submission, etc.

5. Designs can be hand sketched or done using computer drawing software.

5a)Squiggly lines and doodles do not meet the requirement.

6. Submissions need to be original – no direct copying other sources

And that’s it! For submissions that meet these simple requirements, you’ll get yourself a handy reward of 6 Montel Blessing Stones and, and of course the chance at riches, fame, and your vision to be added to world of Montel!

Don’t think you can draw? Find an artistic friend! Try your hand at Photoshop! Or just pick up a pencil, you may surprise yourself.
