Best in Show – the most beautiful entry in general. Will be considered the overall winner and an honorable title.
Best Team – this award is given to the overall best team – most well put together, dressed and represented

Best Costume – awarded to the best costume in the show
The Spirit of Christmas – awarded to the entry with the most Christmas spirit and the best atmosphere


Prizes

All entrants will receive a participation ribbon

Runners up for each award will get an animated headshot of the winning horse with it's ribbon (should the entry include more horses than one, owner may pick which one she wants featured)

The winner of each award will get an animated fullbody image with background of the winning horse with it's ribbon (should the entry include more horses than one, owner may pick which one she wants featured)

The Reserve Champion will receive a breeding to Kawena 2248 AND an animated headshot of the winning horse with it's ribbon (should the entry include more horses than one, owner may pick which one she wants featured). Kawena may not be used to produce a PwlPwl foal.

The Best in Show will receive a breeding to a mystery horse (dominant rare mutation) AND an animated headshot of the winning horse with it's ribbon (should the entry include more horses than one, owner may pick which one she wants featured)


Note that the breedings may not be traded to third parties and if the foals are sold, they should be returned to us. All our standard breeding rules apply.

For this show we only accept one entry per horse, as it's one continuous parade. Entry may include multiple images (as in comic book), but no separate entries.

hm...you think I could steal Commodus for this? I have a nice idea for him and his little bro ^^

Not going to pre-register for now because I don't know who I will enter, but you can expect some entries from me :3

Yes you could steal Commodus. :) He is pretty nervous without his usual handler thou, so don't try anything extreme. :XD:

I just had a sweet costume idea for them because of their colours xD
And don't worry, he'll get something nice to eat and a shirt that smells like his handler, lol.
(I noticed that horses LOVE it to have something like that around)

We won't allow loose horses on the grounds due to the fact that not all the horses can be expected to be friendly towards strangers.

Wish 1: Some art of Leif, doing whatever you want
Wish 2: Tack for the same Nordy (I can give specifics if requested)

Now two questions:
A. Can we enter the parade sans handler/rider, as I can not draw people at all.
B. Who do we contact about what we can give to others for the SS?

A. Horse must have a handler, but the handler does not need to be shown in the picture. But no horses running free on the grounds.
B. Since it would be rather complicated to organize, there will be no separate list as to what everyone is willing to do. Basically we expect you to be able to do same manner of things in return that you requested from others, since it's only fair.

Ah, alright, excellent. I will most likely enter then, after I get my carousel horses done. Will contribute a bit though to the SS :D Thanks so much :)

While I don't want to commit to the show 100% and therefore not preregister at present, at least, I'm intending to enter time permitting.

Secret Santa looks great. :) Is it Nordanner-centric as well, or can it be whatever?
Reply
:iconthatdenver:
ThatDenver Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Can include other wishes than Nordanner related, but they should preferrably be for art/designs rather than things like points. :)
Reply
:iconblueladyaces:
BlueLadyAces Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, yes, totally understand that! Art is good! Just wanted to check because one of the possible wishes I had in mind was designs for, well... not even horses. XD

So yeah, let's shoot for Secret Santa, and hopefully I can fit in show as well. :)

Wishes:
1) Art of any of my ARPG critters. Seriously. I love them all.
2) Design for one (or more) Chinese Crested dog(s) for my kennel. Naked or powderpuff doesn't matter to me, all I ask is they're natural colors allowed/occurring in the breed IRL.
3) Christmas-themed art including one of my horses and yours. Could be a retake on a nativity scene, horses peeking out of holiday-decorated stalls, anything, as long as it's holiday-related. (Bonus points for mistletoe horsie kisses ;) )

Wish 1: Lines and greyscale image of 12 horses.
Wish 2: Some art of my foals Oreo and/or Damien.
Wish 3: A holiday themed image of any 3 of my nordanners.

That look okay?

Well the first wish is way too specific and large. It's huge work doing something like that. Never ask for something you would not be prepared or capable of doing for someone else as well. The other two wishes are fine.
