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 original Fan Fiction (TRO write ups, historical, actual short story, etc), Digital Art (Digital Paintings, 3D Renders, etc) and Traditional Art (Paintings, Sketches, Lego Mechs, Macaroni Sculpture, etc) of the little K-9.

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.

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

Spoiler



PRIZES: (each of the three contests will have three seperate winners)
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!

cheers!

All submissions need be made to the appropriate linked thread!

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

****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.


****************and the Winners are!**************************
Traditional Art:
-1st Place: Dolgfer
-2nd Place: Maxrobo
-3rd Place: steel raven

-1st Place: Kilroy
-2nd Place: Shinypants
-3rd Place: sCOREscream


Fan Fiction:

Thank you again to PGI and Tina and the various judges for making this possible... and to all the entrants who posted their creativity!

Hey, I just want to say, yes, I love the concept of a mech being reused for police work. You game up with it, right? Thanks! ^.^

Contests like this always gets me motivated to work on my portfolio. Good luck to everyone who participates!

Btw, where would a traditionally drawn piece enhanced digitally count towards?

in the end, probably digital, because digital allows for some much more control and editing than traditional. I guess it would somewhat depend, though... I mean if one simply adjusted colors or did since erasing in gimp, etc... then I would still call it traditional, I guess. But anything with colors, paints, etc or retraced and such digitally... would be digital.

I decided to separate the categories because digital art has a lot of advantages over traditional, and I felt that in past contests the pizazz of digital (and again, the ease of editing and fixing stuff) realyl overshadowed hand drawn stuff. So I wanted to give both sides an even playing field!

So awesome that PGI made this Hero. A well deserved tribute to your contributions over the years Bishop!

I just wish I had something to contribute to the contest, but good luck to everyone and I look forward to seeing/reading the winners!

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.
