The holidays are fast approaching and we want to see how you're decorating your apartment/condo/house/cardboard box this year! If you would like to participate, please post your photos in this thread and then we'll vote at the end of the month in various categories. Please try to limit your contest submission to one photo. 

 

Timeline:

Submission deadline: December 28th

Voting deadline: January 6th

 

Categories: This is where we need your help! We've come up with a potential few (most creative, prettiest, craziest, messiest, most american-ized...) if you guys have any other brilliant ideas let me know.

 

The prize will be a banner for you to display around GDC in whatever category you win (it won't be made by me, don't worry :P ). 

 

If you guys have any other questions feel free to post them in this thread, I look forward to seeing your submissions! :)

General. :) I know there's people on here who celebrate various holidays so I wanted to make sure everyone could enter the contest! But you can post a Christmas tree if you wish, it's any type of holiday decoration.

:lol: Yes please. I'm trying to make the voting similar to Ola's Halloween contest, so one entry per person would be preferred.

Yes! If you want to submit more than 1 photo this is definitely the preferred way to do it. :)

^I may need to do that. The Christmas tree just doesn't do the whole house justice.

I think I'll enter this! Not planning on getting the decorations up until next weekend, but yeah.

 

Just a question about the one photo rule: Are you after a photo of one specific decoration, or maybe a shot of the whole room so you can see everything, just not in as much detail?

Yeah that's why I had the deadline after Christmas, figured there's some people who don't have stuff up yet. :P

 

I think it'd be interesting to see the whole room, I'd recommend you do what others are doing - make a collage of a bunch of photos from around the room and submit it as 1 photo so we can see everything, if that makes sense.

Oh, yeah. That's kind of obvious, don't know why I didn't think of that! Thanks!

Can we just take a video walkthrough of our dwelling place, instead of compiling photos?  :lol: #lazy

Stick to the rules, outlaws. :mad:

 

Videos would be cool but it might get too complicated. :lol: If you want to make one, feel free to post it here anyways. :)
