I'm a bit confused about the talent section: are we trying to showcase the talents of our characters or the RL person behind the character (or both)?

For example, let's suppose that my 'talent' is an image of my character waving my wand to cast some fancy spell. What matters more in that case: the spellwork of my character or the artwork that goes into creating the image?

Hey Will.
Your objective is to wow the judges and build a fan base.
How you choose to do that (and your point of view) is entirely up to you.
In your example, if it's spellwork you're trying to showcase, just make sure that aspect is clearly emphasized.

Of the categories listed that you will be judged on, which do you think is the most important, and why?

How can someone answer this you guys have not put up any categories or I can't find the category list. Please help. TY

All parts of the contest are equally important.

These are the categories you will be judged on (in alphabetical order):
  • Character
  • Community Service
  • Confidence
  • Creativity
  • Personality
  • Presentation
  • Style
  • Talent

Thank you, BJ - good catch!

Hi, would like to enquire, is there just this one application round of talent? Or there will be a few rounds?

This may be stupid: but can candidates vote for their own submissions? I’ve seen places where this was allowed... and places where it was punished.

In the platform section of round 2, do we have to describe an issue in essay form or in any form? Thanks.

Since creativity is really encouraged in this activity, I'd say anyway but just make sure the judges get enough information.

I need another day to finish my pride thing. I have no choice but to do it tomorrow. What do I do? I had no chance to do it earlier.

The deadline is 11:59 pm HOL time on November 22nd. Since I will be out and won't be posting submissions right away, we will accept submissions up until 12:59 am HOL time November 23rd.

This task was posted a week ago which should be ample time to complete it. Anything submitted after the time posted above, will not be accepted.

If you feel the need to discuss this further, please contact me directly.
