Finally. This is the moment you all have been waiting for. We will announce the winners of the Special Christmas Art Contest 2017!
Before we announce the winners of this contest, I want to make something very clear to everyone.
The contest's purpose is not for participants to seek glory, fame, nor to highlight who is winners and losers. There are no losers in this contest, zero. If you have taken part then you are a winner! You are the person who helped put this community together and shape it the way it is today. Yes, some of you expressed happiness, anger, but at the end of the day, everyone shares the same purpose. We are all happy and having fun with the game that we love, and we all want everyone else to come together and share that happiness together.
Christmas is a very special time. Yes, the gaming industry IS a business but in the end it's is an industry that we can have aplenty moments where we all can have fun, to share and express what we love, and it brings unity as it allows us to make new friends, find new challenges, and help everyone share the same happiness and joys that we all share deep within our heart. We, the DragonSoul Japan Team, feel that from this community, we are thankful for it and this is why everyone is a winner in this contest. We love your artworks, we admire your tenacity, we appreciate the time & effort you have put into them, we can see your passion and we will use this opportunity to give something back to you. We are all winners; we are all DragonSoulers and we love you for it.
Now. It is time to announce the winners. First, we will start with the 5-Runners up. * DRUM ROLL *
THE 5 RUNNERS-UP OF THE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS ART CONTEST 2017 ARE:
5th Runners-Up: @Lady_Wolf_IV! CONGRATULATIONS!
4th Runners-Up: @SharkSlime! CONGRATULATION!
3rd Runners-Up: @Captain_Planet! CONGRATULATION!
2nd Runners-Up: @Ogno_Took! CONGRATULATION!
1st Runners-Up & Top Contender for First Prize Nomination - @LAS_ECHO! CONGRATULATION!
Now. First Prize was incredibly difficult to decide as it came down to the following two participates:
NOMINATION A: @Stoya
These two participate really captured everything that we asked for but with a twist: One provides the present of misery, the other capture the heart of Christmas by providing presents for all. One is artistically incredible while the other is genius with its multi-perspectives in one viewing. Both images scream DragonSoul and both are highly creative! One contestant will receive First Place, and the other will receive a Special Award.
So... Without further ado... THE WINNER OF THE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS ART CONTEST 2017 is:
#FIRST PLACE: Stoya! CONGRATULATION!
WELL DONE STOYA. You are the winner of the Special Christmas Art Contest 2017! You deserve it.
CS_Feena. Do not worry for you will receive a Special Prize for your artwork is fantastic.
Everyone in the DragonSoul team is proud of these fantastic work. We love them so much, we will feature the work on our Facebook page.
Also. As I said, those who entered are winners! So, similar to the last contest, you'll all receive an Entry Prize. We'll let you know later this week what that prize will be and when it will roll-out, so please stay-tuned (or subscribe) to this thread.
Again. Everyone, thank you for this. Christmas Day is nearly over for some people, but Christmas is still going strong. Enjoy your week, destroy your Christmas dinner, and please continue to have a wonderful Christmas, a brilliant Holidays, and a fantastic New Year!
