Nouman's Contests

In early January 2007, Nouman posted three topics in Community: one for Drawing, one for Composing, one for Mapping.

Drawing Contest

As RMRK has several artists, the idea for this one seemed obvious.

The judges for this contest were:

Rules

  • All submissions must be in by January 16th (the day after MLK Jr. Day)
  • All submissions must be PMed to Nouman, who will post them on judging day Jan 18th without the name of the creator, and only a number.
  • Must be hand drawn, no Photoshop or use of computer
  • Can be any size.
  • Can be either color, or black and white. (adding color will not gain you an advantage since color is not something the judges will be looking at

Judging

  • Judges will give an overall score of 15, grading scale:
  • 5 points for Neatness, 5 points for Creativity, 5 Points for Overall Look.
  • Judges will not know the person who created the art. Only Nouman will know the creators, but he will not base his scores on the creator.

Participants

Any other participants are unknown at this time.

Composing Contest

It was nice to finally have a composing contest at RMRK, however, Nouman wasn't the best person to head this up. This topic also started a bit of controversy with Decadent Sympozium, who seemed hellbent on labelling everything into a specific genre. The topic was then split by HaloOfTheSun and the split posts were moved into Intelligent Debate, although, once there, conversation on the subject almost immediately died out.

Judges were:

Rules

  • All songs must be in by January 18th
  • You may use a sing you have already created
  • All songs must be PMed to Nouman, who will post them on judging day Jan 19th without the name of the creator, and only a number. Please upload your song, and then send it.
  • Song must be over 30sec's and can be as long as you wish.
  • There is no theme for this contest, you may make the song to your own liking

Judging

  • Judges will give an overall score of 15, grading scale:
  • 5 points for rhythm, 5 points for Atmosphere, 5 Points for instrumentation.
  • Judges will not know the person who created the song. Only Nouman will know the creators, but he will not base his scores on the creator.

Participants

Mapping Contest

This ins't RMRK's first mapping contest actually, which shouldn't be surprising, as it is an RPG Maker community.

Judges for this were:

Rules

  • All maps must be in by January 16th (the day after MLK Jr. Day)
  • You may use a map you have already created
  • All maps must be PMed to Nouman, who will post them on judging day Jan 18th without the name of the creator, and only a number.

Each Contestant may submit one map for each of the categories:

  • Indoor Map 25x15 MIN30 by 25 MAX
  • Outdoor Map 25 by 20 MIN 60 by 60 MAX
  • Cave Interior min 30 by 30 MIN 60 by 60 MAX

Judging

  • Judges will give an overall score of 15, grading scale:
  • 5 points for Neatness, 5 points for Use of Space, 5 Points for Life like.
  • Judges will not know the person who created the map. Only Nouman will know the creators, but he will not base his scores on the creator.

Participants

Any other participants are unknown at this time.

Will The Contests Ever End?

Even though Nouman claimed the judging day to January 18, he never started the judging stage until January 27. Also, he only started the judging sequence on the Mapping and Composing contests. As of now, February 8, 2007, no results have been given on any of the contests, which is why all of the participants can't be listed, except for those posting saying they were entering.
