Wintersday Art Contest (2007)

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

What says holiday like a new hat? Wintersday may feature the Snowball Arena, special item drops, new NPCs, a peppy holiday score, and a dozen other seasonal elements, but at the end of the day, the party lasts for but a few days, and the hat is forever.

We're thrilled to let you know that this year, the Guild Wars Art Team is going to use a fan-created concept as a basis for their design of the Grenth Wintersday helm. This means that when the yearly Wintersday battles take place between Dwayna and Grenth, the hat that Grenth gifts to players may be based on your design!

To enter the contest, simply send us a drawing, sketch, or printed image of an original new hat design that has both a Grenth and a Wintersday theme. Consider the hats of yesteryear: the Great Horns of Grenth, the Jester's Cap, and the first Wintersday helm—the classic Horns of Grenth—for inspiration. Then, come up with your own unique design and send it in! The prize? A wonderful gift package from our partners at Ideazon, makers of the new Guild Wars ZBoard. In addition, five other contestants will receive Ideazon prizes, and fifteen others will receive an in-game miniature!
