For those of you who seek to become cartographers of the fanciful and the fantastic, take note of our cartography contest! Our voting public chose to focus on flying towers, and we’re still seeking entries. We want to see what you can come up with!
The deadline for the contest is September 20, so don’t delay too much longer!
To read the rules and find out what cool stuff you might win if your entry is chosen, visit our contest rules page.
People love maps. They come in useful in tabletop roleplaying games, plus they’re just wonderful to look at. They can be a form of art, and they showcase wonderful and sometimes strange worlds and locations.
Recently, we had a poll that asked you, the voting public, what type of map you’d love to have cartographers depict for you in an upcoming contest. Now it’s time to start the contest and see what wondrous flying towers we receive. We’ll share the five best ones with you, which is a huge part of the fun!
How does this work? First, start imagining what sort of flying tower you’d love to map out for us. As with our art contests, you can choose whether you use pencils, inks, watercolors, pixels — as long as you can scan the image in (or convert it in the case of digital format) and send it to us in a jpg file, we are happy. Your submission will be evaluated by a panel of industry professionals and by the fans. As with other contests we’ve done here on the Kobold Press site, fame and prizes play a part in this again. (More on that in a bit!)
So, what do you need to do? First, read all the stuff beyond the jump, then start mapping out your idea of what an awe-inspiring and potentially deadly flying tower looks like. Let your imagination soar!
Now that the Kobolds are back from being exceedingly busy at Gen Con, we can dig through a few things that have been placed aside around the warrens temporarily in favor of convention-oriented tasks and provide a few updates!
Let’s first tackle the upcoming cartography contest update. Our voting public has done its job and provided us with a focus for the cartography contest: flying tower.
Those of you interested in creating a map entry for this contest can keep an eye out for official rules—and get started on your interesting and wondrous map entry for a flying tower.
We’ll also announce our contest judges, as usual, with our rules!
This should be a very fun contest! Thanks go to those who voted on the possible focus for this contest.
Kobold Press is going to have a cartography contest soon, but we want you to choose which type of map you’d prefer to see. So, here are ten ideas. Some are more focused than others, but all should be fun. Pick one, and after the poll closes on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, we’ll post contest rules and fun details.
Thank you in advance for sharing your choice with us!
