In honor of Phase 3 and the introduction of Linkshells into FFXIV, I'm holding a special art contest!


The rules are simple:

- Create Final Fantasy XIV artwork anyway you can with the theme of "The Linkshell Wants you!"

- The linkshell can have any name, or simple be referred to as "The Linkshell."


- All submissions will be reviewed, and a winner will be selected on September 17th.

- One entry per person.

What you have to do:

- Create memorable artwork any way you can: Photoshop, drawing, photography, cosplay -- Any materials you can find (not including other people's art work), you name it -- all under the theme of a fledging linkshell branching out to find new members. (With the fan site kit being released, everyone should have ample materials to create their own comic, poster, or leaflet)

---- To avoid plagiarism, all submissions (especially hand draw entries) must include multiple examples of the unfinished work.

- If your artwork appears on a deviant art page, you must be able to prove that you own that page.

Things to know:
- This is a personal contest, and is not any way sponsored by fan site.

- Contest winner's information will be requested and the copy of Final Fantasy XIV: Collector's Edition will be ordered from a retailer who will ship the game to the winner. I will not be responsible for late arrivals due to problems with the order website. (Winner may suggest their preferred online shopping site).

- Each submission will be posted to image hosting site so that everyone can view the entries.

- I will personally decide the winner, but community input will be taken into consideration.


Feel free to post submissions here as well (especially if they can be found on a deviant art profile), if you want community input.

A pre-order (paid in full) copy of Final Fantasy XIV: Collector's Edition from Winner's preferred site. This contest is region-free, international entries accepted.

Please include your Eorzeapedia/BlueGartr/KillingIfrit/ZAM (and where you're entering from) name in the email.

Neat idea!

I'd consider entering... if my artistic talents didn't max out with stick figures.

It's cool just to check out others' art...I was wondering how long it would take for some uncle sam type pics to show up...

I'm curious but what exactly are you getting out of this contest? The contest is related neither to a your specific character nor to your intended linkshell.

I'm getting to do something nice for the community.

Outside of that, absolutely nothing. (Which makes it even more annoying that the folks at FFXIV Core were major jerks about me posting it.)

Someone posted this link in the "Linkshell Information" thread, but I thought people interested in the art contest might want to see it too. It has screenshots of someone setting up an LS, with the new crests and everything.
