It's that time of the year again! No, I'm not talking about the stress of finals week (hhhhhHHHH), but it's time for me to host another dA Christmas contest :V And this time the amazing and talented Linkerbell is going to be helping out with that which I'm excite for :V

ANYWHO. Just like last year, or for those of you who are new to this, there will be 12 different categories to enter, and you may submit one (1) entry to EACH of them. Most have to do with drawing, considering this is an art site, but there will be other things in an attempt to have some variety and include more people. Each category, then, will have a winner selected from it, making a whopping total of 12 winners; it is possible to win more than one category and thus earn more than one prize, but we will try to avoid that in order to let more people receive prizes! There will also be multiple prizes to select from, but I'll get to that in a bit!

**To submit entries you can submit the link to your items here, you MUST also mention myself and Linkerbell in the description of your piece if it isn't something you sent us a note about!**

-x-

THE CATEGORIES THIS YEAR:

1) Watcher Raffle
The "easy" one. All ya gotta do to enter the raffle is favorite this journal and be watching me and Linkerbell. A random person will be picked between those who have favorited this journal, and sharing it in your own dA will earn you an extra raffle "ticket," so be sure to do that as well for better odds!

2) Under the Mistletoe
One of your OCs caught/was caught by one of ours under the mistletoe! Draw how that goes down :3c

3) Gemsona Holiday Decor
Design a Christmas tree ornament based off one of either mine or Linkerbell's gemsonas AND a snow globe based off of a gemsona belonging to whoever you didn't choose for the ornament! These can be as literal or conceptual as you like.

4) Why Your Hosts Are on the Naughty List
This is a short fan fiction entry, which you can submit however you like (posted as a journal or literature piece, uploaded to another site with a link provided, sent as a private message to both of us, etc). It absolutely does not have in character for myself and Linkerbell, and you may interpret the prompt however you like! NSFW entries allowed but obviously not at all required ;)

5) It's Not Gay if it's a Three-Way
Design a three-way fusion between one of my gems, one of Linkerbell's, and one of your own!

6) Secret Santa
This one's not for your hosts, but whoever you choose! Draw an OC belonging to someone else on dA as a Christmas gift for them, and be sure to say in the description that it was done for this character so we know!

7) Enader Christmas Gathering
Since that's a big thing right now. Draw mine and Linkerbell's Enaders, Ren and Aster, attending a festive celebration along with whichever other Enader OCs you'd like to attend! (And don't forget to credit Mandyrez for the creation of the open species!)

8) Christmas Caroling Revamp
Another creative writing one! Take a well-known Christmas song that you like and rework the lyrics so that they are about any fandom you like, provided that Linkerbell and I are familiar with it (and you can always ask us to double check if you aren't sure). For this one, too, you can upload in a variety of ways, whatever works best for you so long as we know where to find it.

9) Make Linkerbell a Ponysona
It's to my understanding that a lot of my watchers or MLP fans even though that's a thing a rarely draw and have never actually seen. Last year I asked you guys to make me a ponysona because that, and so now it's Linkerbell's turn!

10) DAB QUARTZ
Draw your own contribution to the dabbing Rose Quartz meme! Examples: (1) (2) (3)

11) Direct to Home Video
Draw a scene or cast of characters from a well known holiday film - except replace all of them with mine and/or Linkerbell's characters playing the roles!

12) Santa Baby
It's not really a secret, but my last name is actually Claus, and I can absolutely rock a Santa dress. Let that be your inspiration.

-x-

THE CONTEST PRIZES:
Just like last year, with so many winners, there will be an abundance of prizes to pick and choose from, including but not limited to:

-free commissions
-skype dates
-hand written letter/drawings
-dA points

CONTEST ENTRY DEADLINE: NEW YEAR'S DAY (Jan 1, 2017)

If you have any questions at anything at all or would like to have references of our characters or anything pointed out to you, feel free to contact either one of us! That being said, good luck to everyone participating and I hope you have fun with it ^^

You can either submit them in your dA gallery and mention us and which category it's for in the description or if there's somewhere else you'd like to put it up just give us a link in a note

Oooh sounds really intriguing!

I have a few questions about 8 (sorry if I'm just being stupid):
Does it have to be in English? Question for both the original song and the fandom version. 
Do you (both) have to know the original song, or is the familiarity needed just for the fandom it's about? If I did it about a song that is well known in my country, it might be that it's not popular at all in the US (or it might not even have an English translation)

We don't have to know the song but it'd be helpful if you provided a link to the original so we can hear it. The original doesn't have to be in English but your version would otherwise we wouldn't be able to read it!
