In celebration of seeing the "little Urbie who could" come to life, I wanted to create a contest, in conjunction with PGI to celebrate the little guy, now official to MWO as the UM-K9 "K-9" Urbanmech Hero.

(Note, the mech pictured above has been modified to more closely resemble original concept art, and does not reflect the actual finished geometry and paint selection of the UM-K9 Hero Mech)


This will be a three way contest, for Fan Fiction, and both Digital and Traditional Art.

This is the Entry Thread for FAN FICTION ONLY.

By Fan Fiction, I mean TRO write ups, historical, actual short story, etc

All entries must be new and original, created especially for the sake of this contest. The Winner in each category will be gifted a shiny new UM-K9 "K-9" Urbanmech Hero. (dunno if there should be anything like MC, premium time, etc for 2nd/3rd place, or if it's an all or nothing type of party?)

For the fictional background informational aspect, a few details of the mysterious Urbanmech come to be known as the Deputy Dawg...er.... K-9.............. Posted Image

PRIZES:
1st Place: K9 Hero Mech
2nd Place MC Injection (1250 MC)
3rd place: Cockpit Item or Color of Choice

Winners will be decided by a Panel of PGI Judges, our Community Manager, Tina, and Myself!

This is all in good fun, of course, but I wanted some way of saying THANK YOU to all the members of the community who helped me get first the Urbanmech, and finally, my beloved Hero, into this game! And an extra special Thank you, to PGI, not only for bringing my Deputy Dawg to life, but supporting this contest, also!

Oops! I forgot! Contest ends 11:59pm EST, March 15th, 2017, after which we will judge and post winners hopefully soon after!

It's short, but I will not have time to flesh it out more sadly... so it may be incomplete, but it is my submission none the less.

Mmm... you may have more time than you think. Will update later in the day, but I may (hopefully not) have to extend the deadline, due to unforseeable circumstances behind the scenes. Nothing important is changing, per se, except MAYBE the entry deadline.

****EDIT****

I'm extending the Deadline. Not by choice, but necessity. Apparently Tina had to be out of town for the last couple of weeks, and won't be returning until Monday. I am trying to work the situation out with another Dev at this time, but because of his other responsibilities, I don't believe he has had time to get fully caught up. So until I know what is going on ( I am only one of the judges on the panel, and do not have the power to bequeath the prizes), I will have to extend the deadline. At this time I am extending it tentatively by 48 hours until 11:59 pm EST, March 17th, 2017, but it may extend longer depending on what is decided. I apologize for the confusion and thank you for your patience. If you have any more polishing on your arts, stories, etc, feel free to continue.

Hey all!

Tina is currently on vacay, but we'll begin the review process this Monday when she returns. Apologies for the delay, but hopefully with the new deadline we'll see some final submissions. We're all stoked to to run through the results

Now? We wait. Tina returns on Monday, and then the entries will be passed among the judges, who will independently vote on their top three. After that? We post the winners, and distribute prizes accordingly.
