Celebrate 'Reala Day' & Win Prizes
NiGHTS Into Dreams.com is easily one of the most impressive fansites you’re likely to see about any subject but what really makes it special are the dedicated and talented people who visit. Like the Sonic community, the NiGHTS community is full of fantastic artits, writers and creative minds in general. NID forum member Maresuke realises this and have actually set up a competition to try and draw some creative juices in exchange for some fantastic prizes. All of this though is in aide of ‘Reala Day’.
“As some of you may know, every year on All Fool’s Day the great NiGHTS masquerades as Reala in our lovely Christmas NiGHTS and PS2 games. About 5 or 6 years ago I started celebrating April Fools not by pulling pranks but instead by sporting Red and Black stripes and black makeup in spirit of Reala. Since then, every April 1st I’ve celebrated by dressing in Reala-inspire attire and baking cookies in the shape or likeness of Reala.
Sadly, I won’t be able to go all out this year like normal due to crap happening in my life. So, instead I’m asking YOU to help keep the celebration alive with a contest! Prizes! HURRAH!”
If enough entries are submitted, I will have categories such as Artwork, Videos, Writing, and Misc. (like BAKING!) There will be a price for each category and a Grand Sexcellent prize for whoever shows the most spirit.
You CAN submit more than one entry but I’d much rather you work hard and put your heart into one entry rather than scramble around trying to finish lots of things before April.
Entries will not be judged just by talent. Obviously, if you spend 5 minutes drawing a picture on lined paper while someone else worked days on a picture, the quality entry will get the prize.
First prize is a t-shirt sporting the pattern to the left but a number of substitute prizes are available including 3 months subscription to either Deviant Art or Photobucket or even an art commission drawn by Mareskue himself. Runners up get a fetching Reala Day 2009 pin. For more details check out the NiGHTS Into Dreams forum and remember, the closing date for the competition is April 12th. Good luck!
