    Introduction
    Today, we have an exclusive (and very special) announcement - WildStar Central are pleased to launch their inaugral community competition. In keeping with the season, we're going to "Deck the Granok" (no, we don't mean beating up The Sarge!)

    We're going to decorate a Granok for the Holidays. Fa-la-la-la-la, and so on. Carbine Studios have supplied us with an exclusive piece of custom concept artwork for this very purpose - you simply have to draw all over it!

    Timeframe and Entering
    To enter, all you will need to do is email your masterpiece of festive creativity to competition@wildstar-central.com before midnight EST on 30th December 2011 - the staff here at WSC will discuss and then announce the winners on 6th January 2012.

    Yes, you heard us - winners. We will pick the three finest entries (be it finest concept or finest artwork - you don't need to be a van Gogh!) for first, second and third place - to be our inaugral champions!

    Your entry email must include...

    - Your entry as a JPG, PNG or GIF formatted image attachment
    - Your WSC forum username
    - Your real name and postal address (for legal, and prize shipping purposes)

    Please note that your entry will also be agreement to our competition terms and conditions (listed below).

    Prizes
    But, I hear you ask, what do the winners get? Aside from the pride of besting your fellow entrants, you will get a custom forum title - "Deck the Granok Winner 2011".

    What? Not enough? Very well... then courtesy of Carbine Studios, we will also offer the following prize packages (ably modelled by Carbine's own Loic "Atreid" Claveau)....

    First Prize: Dev-signed Poster, Embroidered Cap, WildStar T-Shirt, Carbine Studios T-Shirt, WildStar Crew T-Shirt (view) (view)
    Second Prize: Dev-signed Poster, Embroidered Cap, WildStar Crew T-Shirt (view)
    Third Prize: Embroidered Cap (view)

    That's right, you heard us - real WildStar swag, straight from the source! See? We do love you, after all!

    So, we guess you're now ready to grab that image and start decorating. Well, with no further adieu...

    You could always just cut and paste pieces from different images and plaster them over the Granok :)

    So is this midnight on Friday night, or midnight of Thursday night? I get confused with 12AM due times...

    It iiiiiis. That makes me happy though. Means I can polish up a little more tonight after seeing a movie and then submit. Wish I had most of tomorrow too, but I'll be traveling back home so no time to do so. :(

    Winners Announcement
    Ladies and gentlemen (and Skeech) - Aurin of all ages, lend me your ears,

    Despite the busyness of the Festive Season, among the family and friends that we gather around us at this time of year, two entrants braved the artistic arena to vie for the coveted WSC Custom Title! (oh yeah, and some Carbine/WildStar swag!).

    Alas, while this means that the Third Prize will languish in the storage closet for a while yet, these two worthy competitors will receive their just rewards. But, I hear you cry, who are they, what did they do and who won?! Well, I'll keep you in suspense no longer...

    First Prize Winner: sziszii8
    Medium: Diorama
    1-deckthegranok-szisziii8.jpg
    It was the medium used that won the judges here at WSC over - the creativity of cutting out our image and arranging it in a 3D manner. Well played, sziszii8! (Download here)

    Second Prize Winner: alienfirst
    Medium: Digital Art
    2-deckthegranok-alienfirst.jpg
    Here, we were wowed by the sheer talent of the artist - adding in a whole second character to the image by hand. Excellente alienfirst! (Download here)


    Congratulations to our winners - your custom title is already active and your prize delivery will be arranged as quickly as we are able!
