Welcome to this exciting celebration of Elftown's 5th birthday!
In honour of this birthday we would love to see your festive artistic entries in art and writing!
Please read the rules and [#THEME] below :)


General rules:

Images and writings must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original creator. Which means, no matter how much you might like someone else's work, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images or texts from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN ENTRIES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.


Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, entries that include graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only entries that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums will be accepted.

You don't lose the right to your art, but by submitting it in these competitions, you allow Elftown to use the art in its wikis.

Special rules


To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no drawings on lined notebook paper
- no pictures or bad scannings of your drawings
- drawings must be new. That means you may not submit a drawing you have made before this contest or one that was submitted to another contest already.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured. Sketches will not be accepted.



When using a photograph, whether original or manipulation, you must prove to us that you took this picture.
Submit a second picture with you in the same surrounding as the picture was taken. You may be required to submit more proof, if any doubts are raised.


Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no netspeak, use proper English and mind your spelling
- entries must contain a minimum of 4 and maximum of 20 lines



The theme of this contest is:

2007-04-28 [Nadie importante]: I dont understand the elftown crushing party option in drawings...

2007-04-28 [Sunrose]: Elftown is celebrating its birthday with a party, who are going to be crashing it? (should of course display a character actually crashing the party, not just a character)
Crashing the party means someone goes to a party they weren't invited to but it's impossible for Elftown to know who all to invite ;)

2011-03-22 [Artsieladie]: A mad take-over! lol

2011-03-22 [Artsieladie]: Well, I'm not sure either, but it sure as hell beats crying. Besides, what is that saying? I think it goes something like: "When you laugh, the whole world laughs with you, but when you cry, you cry alone." Beat 'em with a wet noodle then! :P
