BlizzCon 2013 Art and Movie Contests now open for submissions

BlizzCon 2013 contests announced

Need another reason to be excited about BlizzCon? For the creative types out there (or those who just enjoy admiring the work of creative types), Blizzard has released a preview of the contest lineup for BlizzCon this November. And, though full details are to follow (including complete rules, guidelines, eligibility information, and submission details), you can start planning work now.


BlizzCon 2013 Contests
BlizzCon 2013 Art Contest
The Art Contest is coming back! We can't wait to see your always impressive original Blizzard-based artwork. Carpe diem-there's no time like now to dream up your next masterpiece in the hope of having it displayed at BlizzCon (and winning some great prizes).

BlizzCon 2013 Original Movie Contest
We're looking forward to screening another brilliant selection of original films based on Blizzard games. Whether it's live action, animated, wholly digital, or a combination, we can't wait to see what you come up with.

BlizzCon 2013 Costume Contest
The Costume Contest makes a triumphant return! Every BlizzCon, you keep upping the ante for amazing costumes, and we're sure this show will be no exception. As you're contemplating what you'd like to create, keep in mind that your safety is of paramount importance-that means that any costume you plan to wear should be something that you can easily see out of and safely maneuver in without assistance. In addition, no real weapons, dangerous materials, or large motorized costumes will be allowed.

And, while the costume contest is definitely something you need to be at the convention for -- remember, there's another round of ticket sales on Saturday and we have some buying tips for hopeful attendees -- the art and movie contests are online contests.

Enter to win The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

When we first heard about The Art of Blizzard Entertainment, a collection of artwork from Blizzard's artists over the course of their development history, we all seriously underestimated its size. While many expected something on the scale of the art books that come packaged with a World of Warcraft Collector's Edition, it turned out to be a 376 page behemoth that dwarfs nearly everything else on my office bookshelf. The book features everything from Chris Metzen's earliest Blizzard works to far more recent Mists of Pandaria and Diablo III artwork.

Thanks to Blizzard Entertainment themselves, we have a copy of the book to give to one of our lucky readers.

To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Tuesday, April 9, 2013. You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You can only enter once. One winner will be chosen at random and we will contact you via whatever method you've used to comment. Official rules here.

Winners announced for Build Big, Win Big Mega Bloks contest

Image
The winners for Blizzard's Build Big, Win Big contest from Mega Bloks have now been announced on the official website. While there could only be one Grand Prize winner, the contest result showed off ten third prize winners, and five second prize winners as well. The Grand Prize winner, Bradley Tingstad, gets to celebrate with one year of WoW and a gigantic pile of prizes, including copies of all five World of Warcraft Collector's Editions. That's one heck of a prize!

The contest, announced late last year, asked enterprising builders to combine their World of Warcraft Mega Bloks sets into new combinations. The winning entries did just that, some with astonishing results, and all with a display of imagination and creativity.

Blizzard's post on the official website has photos of the Grand Prize entry -- a remarkably adept replica of a goblin shredder -- as well as the second place winners. For photos of the third prize winners, as well as more images of the winning entries, you can head to the official Build, Big, Win Big! Facebook app.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway World of Warcraft Cycle of Hatred paperback Dec 29
12 Days of Winter Veil is under way here at WoW Insider. That means 12 days of giveaways, 12 chances for you to win some of the awesome swag we've accumulated over the year. Whether you've been a good goblin or a naughty night elf, there's a chance that WoW Insider has a holiday gift for you this season.

Cycle of Hatred, written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, is one of the earliest World of Warcraft novels dating back to January 2006. While somewhat dated in a post-Cataclysm world, the story told within Cycle of Hatred acts as a basis for the repeatedly renewed feud between the Horde and the Alliance in the World of Warcraft. Courtesy of Blizzard Entertainment, we're giving away nine copies of Cycle of Hatred in paperback.

To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Saturday, January 5, 2013.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: Plush Gryphon and Plush Windrider

12 Days of Winter Veil is under way here at WoW Insider. That means 12 days of giveaways, 12 chances for you to win some of the awesome swag we've accumulated over the year. Whether you've been a good goblin or a naughty night elf, there's a chance that WoW Insider has a holiday gift for you this season.
For the launch of Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard was kind enough to give us some loot to pass out at our midnight release meet-and-greets. Unfortunately, one of our locations canceled their midnight release event at the last moment, leaving us with a bit of excess loot. Today, all of you get a shot at that loot -- we're giving away a plush gryphon and a plush windrider.

Today's entry is a little different than what we've done so far: you need to choose which of the two pets you want, declaring your allegiance with a "For the Horde!" for a shot at the windrider or "For the Alliance!" for a shot at the gryphon. You may only enter once, so choose carefully.

To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment (following the instructions above) on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Wednesday, January 2, 2013. You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You may only enter once. One winner will be chosen at random for each item and we will contact you via whichever method you've used to comment. Official rules here.
