10 years ago today I opened History of Hyrule.
In honor of that, I had to get the calendar contest announced today!

PRIZES: There's more ocarinas, manga, toys and figurines, and I'm also giving away a bunch of copies of Hyrule Historia.

In fact, if you get an entry in before the end of June, you'll have a chance to win a copy of it just for participating! :meow:

CHECK IT OUT!
Go read about it! Get inspired! And enter so we can make it freakn' AWESOME!

Again, this contest is really just being held to make a free 2013 calendar for everyone: so it's also kind of a collab. Even if you don't care about prizes~ consider entering just to make something that every Zelda fan can use and love.

Spread the word so it doesn't suck! :meow:

The theme is History of Hyrule, so anything you could imagine happening in the history of all of the land should work!

Read about it here

And, if you have any questions, just ask! :heart:
I'm so excited. & Thanks for making all the years so great!

If you love Zelda and do a lot of fanart, than it would be perfect if you entered! I would hope that you would at least; You art is perfect for it! I hope you do. An I'd much rather it be about inclusion than exclusion, I don't want people to not enter because of how they feel about the other art. I want the event to be about inspiring people to draw more of what they love. I would just call it a collab, but I wanted to offer items for it. I want people to think of it that way though~ Like artist's just coming to gather to draw something along a theme for fun!

I'm so sorry, I just saw this! D: I feel so bad. I can't figure out why I didn't see it in the admin panel.

The entries can be submitted to the DA gallery for this group; but I'm encouraging everyone to send everything pertaining to the contest to the main contest email: historyofhyrule.contests@gmail.com

I actually add all the entries found on DA, that come in through that email, to this group automatically. And that's where I am always sure to answer questions.

And this [link] is the only place where I can guarantee the info will always be up-to-date and accurate.

I was thinking about doing something about the birth of Ganondorf, possibly adding the themes of Demise in there, but I haven't decided yet. Baby Ganondorf will be (mostly) clothed, so will be age appropriate. It's not what I'd call "epic," but it's what I'd call a historical moment in Hyrule's History. Let me know if this would be an acceptable image/theme. Thanks! :D

The idea sounds exactly like something I would hope for! Sweet! :D

If you start to work on it and are still un-sure if it's fitting with the theme, just send an email over to the contest email address with your progress or thumbnail or whatever. :)

(The email is in that thread that can be found, above; I just know that if I type it out there will probably be a typo X)

I finally finished it and sent it through the e-mail (at 3:00 exactly EST, so 12:00 PST, I hope. If I did my math right.... Anyway, whether I made it or not, or whether I win or not, I hope you enjoy it; "The King is Born" is dedicated to you, after all; stay well over the holidays!

Mwahahaha: now you will have to enter! So, the deadline this month is only for a chance at one of the prizes. It's basically an "early participation prize and deadline." ~The actual deadline is:

Deadlines and Time Limits:
The final day for all entries is midnight (GMT) November 30st, 2012. (Try to consider the deadline being midnight GMT. This is 8:00pm in NYC. If it's a few hours late, that will be fine. But: try.)

:) You'll enter now, right?

But I want a chance at the prizes! Bawww. But of course I'll do it. I actually have the thumbnail sketch I made that day stuck to the furniture item next to my work area, so I see it when I look up and left, as a reminder!

Aaaahhh! Ok, First of all, Happy Birthday, History of Hyrule! That's amazing! An awesome 10 years on the net (even tho a few of those years were on hiatus, but nonetheless....)

Secondly, YES! Another calendar contest! This is super exciting! I've been uninspired lately, but this contest might just be the thing to make me inspired again! Imma get some of my buddies to enter this year, too.

Also, quick question, does any land other than Hyrule, but still part of the Zelda series count too? (Like Termina or Koholint Island or.... yes something like that).

lol, yeah, most of them. But, you know, a birthday's a birthday XD Thank you!! XD

I hope you get inspiration, I would love to see your entries. I want o shoot some good muse vibes your way :meow:

I'm going to encourage people to keep it just within Hyrule. If one outside of Hyrule happens, I probably wouldn't knock it out of the running: but it would be harder for it to win one of the final spots. I might add that to the main thread about it too. I thought about adding it before hand, but it slipped my mind as I was typing. (thanks for basically reminding me ;))

Awesome prizes, just like last time. This time, I'll try to actually finish something. Unlike last year. I never did finish that one. I have an idea forming in my mind already.

In the prize list, prize number 8 are actually Phantom Hourglass figurines, not Spirit Tracks.

Freakn' sweet! I'm so glad! I really hope you are able to. It makes me happy, and I'm so thrilled when I hear ideas are brewing. As an artist: I think that's the thing that makes me the happiest :3

(lol, thank you! I did that when I was tagging stuff too, called PH ST instead *doh!* Thank you for catching that for me)
