2016 Pixie Hollow Games
Week 3 Competitions – The Finals
~*~ September 28October 15, 2016 ~*~

Hi, Pixies!

As most of you know, there was a scheduling issue for Week 3 Competitions that didn’t get revealed until the day before the competitions were originally scheduled to end, so they were postponed for 2 weeks while issues were addressed. Thank you for your patience during this time.

We’re still not entirely sure why participation has been dwindling throughout the competitions, but we hope the upcoming fan-favorite competitions and extended completion times will help 😉

Alright, so Week 2 Competitions officially ended 2 weeks ago (on Sept. 14), and after a 2-week hiatus, we’re now into our third and final week of the Pixie Hollow Games!!! 😀

But first, let’s finally announce the winners from Week 2 😉

 


 

Gem Juggle (Bejeweled) High Score Competition:

Gold = June with 12,495 points
Silver = Snowflake Fancypuff with 9,225 points
Bronze = Juniper with 7,730 points

Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thank you for everyone who participated!!! 😀



Paint the Flowers Competition:

Gold = Rose MorningMist
Silver = Snowflake Fancypuff
Bronze = June (a.k.a Gwyn)

The entries were all absolutely beautiful! ❤

Choosing the winners took several days, because each picture was completely unique and had to be judged on various levels of artistry and execution.

Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thank you for everyone who participated!!! 😀

Exciting News:

As we continue into the FINAL WEEK of the 2016 Pixie Hollow Games, we would REALLY like to see EVERYONE who signed up to participate in the final competitions! *HINT*HINT* 😉

To help promote more participation, we’re allowing EVERYONE a second chance to earn a participation point for every competition that has happened so far:

  1. Harvest Hustle High Score
  2. Design the Winner’s Trophy
  3. Paint the Flowers
  4. Gem Juggle (Bejeweled) High Score

If you missed the deadlines for these competitions, you now have a SECOND CHANCE to earn participation points!!! Just follow the instructions from the posts to submit your entry, and then you will receive a point for each one you missed (so long as it follows the guidelines, of course).

**Note: If you already participated in a competition, you can’t earn another participation point.**

Here’s the most exciting news: When the final competitions end on October 15, 2016, a very lucky pixie who has participated in all 6 competitions will be selected at random to win a prize!!! 😀 More details about this will be revealed soon 😉

Again, we would REALLY like to see more participation from the pixies who signed up! The leaderboard only has 9 pixies listed and 18 pixies signed up!!! That’s only half of the participants actually competing!!! 😮

With all this in mind, show everyone what you’re made of and represent your talent by participating in the competitions!!!

Week 3 Competitions were inspired by Water-Talents and ALL talents since it’s the finals 😉

 



Finish the Short Story Competition

Since so much of the 2016 Pixie Hollow Games’ action has been going on behind the scenes, we thought it would be fun for pixies to share the Water-Talent-inspired competition by finishing a short story! 😀

Here is the beginning of the story you will need to finish for the competition (plus an image!):

Rainbow Falls

rainbow-falls

After a quick attendance check, the competing pixies were led by Marigold Sunjewel, President of the Events’ Committee, to a remote location in Never Land to begin their next competition.

“Welcome to Rainbow Falls!” Marigold announced as the pixies landed and gathered around her. Many gazed in amazement at the sight of a rainbow-colored waterfall, but even more astonishing was the fact that the massive falls were softly cascading just barely above a whisper into the water below.

“Before I explain the rules,” Marigold said while flipping through her leaf handbook, “I want to inform all of you that this will be the most challenging competition you will face in the 2016 Pixie Hollow Games.”

Nervous chatter and questioning looks were exchanges amongst the competitors until Marigold continued.

“However, because of the difficulty level, I will give everyone a few minutes to divide up into teams of two to complete the challenge…Oh, and by the way, it might be beneficial for different talents to partner up–“

Suddenly, there was a thunderous sound that caused everyone to scream.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Competition Rules:

  1. Finish the short story about the Water-Talent-inspired 2016 Pixie Hollow Games competition held at Rainbow Falls
  2. Write in third person point of view
  3. Characters competing in the story can only be those who are participating in the 2016 PHG (see the full list of competitors above)
  4. Entries must be no more than 1,000 words (the pre-written portion will not be added into your final word count)
  5. You must email your finished story to Marigold (marigoldsunjewel@gmail.com). To preserve creativity and prevent stolen ideas, please don’t post your story on your blog until the contest ends. Limit one entry per pixie.

Entries may be submitted now through the end of the day on October 15, 2016.

Once the competition has ended, Marigold will display the entries with each pixie’s name in this post. Limit 1 entry per pixie, please. (Note: All stories entered will also be added to the Pixie Hollow Library!)

Scoring: Everyone who submits an entry will receive a point that will go towards winning the 2016 Pixie Hollow Games! Points will be awarded as follows:

  • 1 point awarded for participating
  • 2 points awarded for 3rd place (Bronze)
  • 3 points awarded for 2nd place (Silver)

      • OH MY GOD!! -DROPS MOUTH- THANK YOU SO MUCH!
        And oh well I was thinking about it and maybe I expressed myself the wrong way: What I meant was – If I go slightly overboard with the words in the writing bit will I be disqualified? I promise I’ll try for it to be 1000 but if it turns out to be idk say 1200…will it be disqualified? And of course you’re generous c’mon you’re amazing 😀

        Thank you again 🙂
