J!NX and Blizzard announce World of Warcraft T-Shirt Design Contest

The contests, they keep coming! This particular one from Blizzard and J!NX is particularly interesting for you budding designers and artists out there, as J!NX is giving you a chance to design the next wave of Cataclysm gear! Using their design kit, you can create designs in the template and upload them for a shot at getting your designs on Jinx clothing.

J!NX has been heralding in some pretty interesting design choices over the course of the last year, and they're showing a remarkable amount of foresight into lots of different categories of clothing that gamers and geeks in general would want. When I visited them at BlizzCon 2010, they had an impressive showing of quality stuff ranging from the normal T-shirts to the offbeat murloc hoodie. If this contest is any indication, they are going to be looking for all types of designs, from the subtle to the crazy.

Check out the official contest post, where you can find links to the design kit as well as the contest submission forms.

Blizzard's holiday desserts contest winners

During the winter holiday season, Blizzard challenges us to get our bake on. While thousands hop into the kitchen and design elaborate WoW-themed sweets, only a handful or two will rise above the rest for recognition and lootz.

This year definitely did not disappoint. Blizzard chose the top fifteen designs, and is now displaying the winning submissions, many of which are not only creative, but display baffling skill. I wonder if they were all edible.

It was definitely difficult to pick out a personal favorite, but I think I'm going to have to choose Leyine's refreshment table. Although it likely was not the most complicated design, it struck me as the most fun.

Which dessert would be your pick? What criteria did you use when deciding; creativity, difficulty, overall appearance, or some other?

Make real life dishes and crafts based on in-game items with the help of our World of WarCrafts column. Or whip up a tasty snack to keep you going during your gaming sessions with Well Fed Buff.

Beowulf contest winners announced

The names of the winners of the Beowulf photojournalism contest have just been announced, and there are some very interesting compilations posted. Personally I enjoyed the simplicity and drama in Gank Frank, but the others definitely have a more developed storyline. I also clicked with the atmosphere created in Milr's piece, and found that it really drove me to continue through.

The contest was cooked up as a joint venture between Blizzard, Robert Zemeckis and Paramount Pictures. The challenge was to creatively arrange your screenshots into a story, and the prize is a year's subscription to WoW. Congratulations to; Fenrix, Mikomi, Anderson, Milr, and Moonasha.

If you're feeling sad because you weren't able to participate, never fear. Just check out the latest WoW comic contest honorable mentions, submitted by Kiah. The cutie pie oomkin is guaranteed to make you smile!
