The nights grow long and the snow level is dropping. Is that the sheen of ice in the Lion's Arch fountain? Do you hear the Elonians warming up their voices in preparation for caroling in Kamadan? Ok, enough seasonal references, let's move on to the good bits: We're happy to announce the first annual Guild Wars Wintersday Art Contest! That's right: Wintersday is coming, and with it comes the opportunity to share seasonal Guild Wars goodness with others—in your own neighborhood, in your guild, and around the world.

You are invited to put your imagination and your artistic talents to work in crafting a piece of seasonal art with a holiday tone and a Guild Wars theme. Perhaps it's an invitation to the Wintersday Festival or a poster celebrating the event. Or maybe it's a collage of seasonal art with Guild Wars characters, or a screenshot from last year's festival with your own artistic touches added. All ideas are welcome, and a side benefit for the Dev Team is that some of the fan art will be printed to decorate our office this holiday season. So share the joy!
