Hey guys, I’m hoping I can have your support and help with another cause. Recently one of the creators of the Zelda series (Aonuma) stated that he would be open to giving Princess Zelda a playable role if enough people have “strong feelings about it.” Well, I do and I’d even be happy if they just gave her a more befitting role for a ruler with the Power of Wisdom and the Gods at her disposal. So I created a Facebook page for it and would love it if you joined and if you spread the word about it. Just like with the Hyrule Historia push we made: I believe we can make this happen. Here's the link, please share it with your friends: www.facebook.com/NintendoPleas…

And please join!
Let’s absolutely shock them with how many people want to see this happen.
If you would like to download it: hit download on this entry, unzip it, and then just print the pages out!

The 2013 Contest Winners (UPDATED) by Woodland-Mel

A PDF version has been added here: historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2…

EDIT:
I added the blank template, and all of the entries at a size that fits within it, so you can make  a 2013 calendar with any of your favorite pieces from this year, and last year's, event. ( That's over 250 pieces to choose from!)

The 2013 Calendar: Make Your Own by Woodland-Mel

Find everything for that here:
-- The Blank Template Download on DA woodland-mel.deviantart.com/ar… or the Off-Site Download: www.filefactory.com/file/3d274…
-- All the entries for the 2013 event: "History of Hyrule" theme historyofhyrule.com/fanworks/0…
-- All the entries for the 2012 event: "Music Festival" theme historyofhyrule.com/fanworks/0…

Thanks again everyone, it was spectacular. I hope your New Year is an amazing one and don't forget to join us for this next year's contest soon!
You can find the same info in this submission/thumb but I also want to post it out in the open, in a journal here :)

The 2013 Contest Winners (UPDATED) by Woodland-Mel

:star: Please go here to read more: historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2… That post has A LOT more information. I would highly recommend checking it out before commenting on anything. :star:

Everyone was so great, please join us at History of Hyrule historyofhyrule.com for the event next year, so we can have an amazing 2014 calendar as well!

Links to the "winning" pieces can be found here historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2… and below, you can find most of the DA entries in the group's contest folder to the left, but every single entry is actually in this flickr set: www.flickr.com/photos/historyo… Please check all of them out. You'll be able to make your own version of the calendar using any of them; so it can contain all of your favorite ones!

I also hope to be doing a follow up post on that blog where I talk about the other amazing entries that also could have been included on the calendar. There were so many deserving ones. But... each and every one of the artists involved only deserve positive feedback; everyone did an amazing job, and these picks were extremely difficult because of that. These are only the results based on my, (and another judge's,) final decision. If you disagree with me, don't take it out on any of the artists. These were my choices, not theirs. I ultimately wanted this contest to be about encouragement. I know 99% of you are awesome and that this hardly needs to be said, but; I know not winning is incredibly discouraging, but please avoid leaving public comments on any of the entries saying someone else should have been picked for one of these spots. If you want to tell someone you feel they should have won over someone else, then consider that notes and email may be a kinder option. Thank you for understanding! ♥

***
I'll be making this into a downloadable calendar as soon as I can. (I'll edit it in to the submission I posted the thumb for, and I will be posting it on historyofhyrule.com) It will be ready before January 2013. I'll announce it in my journal, in this group's journal, and on History of Hyrule's main site historyofhyrule.com when it's ready.

This is just abbreviated info, for the full rules and guidelines, see this thread: melorasworld.com/zelda/thefore…

New Entries (so far) are uploaded! -And there's still a few hours left until the deadline. Find them here: www.flickr.com/photos/historyo…
and look in our group gallery for the ones found on DA! (but to see all of them, you'll have to head to that flickr link)

Do not be afraid to write me with corrections. If you do not see your entry in the flickr gallery please let me know. www.flickr.com/photos/historyo… I WILL be going through EVERY contest email after the deadline, to double check things (because I don't want to make any mistakes) but it's a huge help if you let me know sooner than later if you think there is an error. It is possible for me to miss stuff and, once judging is complete, there's no going back.

But only use the contest email historyofhyrule.contests@gmail.com  Remember that notes and comments are just for emergencies at this point. I can't promise I'll see them, so they can really only be used to ask me if I'm getting your emails.

Information (your name, urls, description, etc) can be updated at any time. That stuff is usually not completely necessary for judging, so it's not really subject to the same deadlines. The most important stuff is your art, and that I can reach you. Those things should be settled if your piece is in that gallery. Your art can also be updated at any time, BUT anything that gets changed after the deadline will not be used for judging. You'd only be updating it because you want the newer version on display: And the newer versions WILL be what is used on the site, so people can make it a part of their calendar if they wish. :meow:

Also, so you know, (and I'll post about this more later,) it will take me a day or two to double check all the info, and it will take a few days to figure out the winners. Once they are picked, I'll let everyone know: and then I'll write the 12 winners with an order in which they can pick the prizes (it's decided by a lottery) ~and after that I will do another lottery drawing for the final participation prize!

There's a blog post with more info here: historyofhyrule.blogspot.com/2…
And the main info thread for the contest is here: melorasworld.com/zelda/thefore…

You can also look back through the journal entries for this group to see the most recent news for the contest.
Hey guys, I was at the vet this morning preventing an emergency (I hope); I'm going to send everyone with a valid entry a really quick reply so ya'll know if I got it. Then I'll check my notes and stuff to make sure I have everyone's. Sorry they'll be short. I want to come back and make nice comments a little later, when the urgency is gone.
