Hey there, guest! (Why, that is an unusual and wonderfully random name you have there!) My owner has decided to make this a VERY special page indeed - I am going to help her share the Random Contest entries she has submitted and/or won prizes with! Isn't that cool?
What makes us especially sad is that when a Neopian
wins 3rd place for their entry (and hey, that ain't half
bad), it isn't displayed in the "Winner's Circle". :@ ( I think anyone
who places should have their work showcased as well, although we can understand why 100
3rd place entries can't be on display. So, that's why we're putting Seakquy's here; she put
as much hard work into hers as anyone else!! @_@
Keep an eye out though; one of these days, Seakquy plans to earn 1st place for...who knows what it could end up being? Ah, the joy of randomness, indeed!
NEXT, WE HAVE
*We find we've done better when we submit entries as soon as possible; it gives the Neopets Team more time to review and possibly pick your entry. However, we've also sent in entries "late" in the game and still placed, so really, just do your best, and if it impresses the judges, you will win too!
*For some of the more "offbeat" contests (such as ones involving cooking, crafts or sound recordings), chances are not as many will be able to enter (for whatever reasons). [Example - see my 2nd-placing Thumb Rumble entry below.] So, if you have a special talent and ability to participate in those ones, you SHOULD, because you may have a better chance to place higher. Image/drawing and writing contests tend to be a LOT more competitive with so many talented artists and writers out there.
*Have fun! It will show in your work if you've put a lot of time and talent into your entries. This may be all you need to win TNT over! Even if you think something isn't as *good* as other people's entries, you never know what they're looking for! We all have our own special style anyway, right? TNT tries to display all levels of talent, as one can see from past contests.
*If you still don't win, no worries: I've seen instances where entries that didn't place in the Random Contest were submitted and posted in the Picture Gallery and/or The Neopian Times, so don't lose hope on getting in the spotlight! Get your work out there, and eventually someone will notice it.
*Don't give up - even if you don't win/place every week you enter, you may another time. (Even I've had several entries I really liked and was proud of, but they never placed.) Keep at it, if nothing else, you are honing your own art and creative skills.
That's all there is to it! Good luck!
