Maybe you should read this before you make the judges anonymous.

Scroll down and look for 3+ judges are required.

I just didn't want to see you get into trouble! Looks like a nice contest. If I had the time, I would join. Good luck!

Jelena [he-lay-na] May

Name: Jelena Juliani May

Age: 29

Bio: Practically living in Veronaville's library, Jelena never experimented with the dating scene or what is 'in'. Coming out of an abusive relationship that lasted from her teens to her early twenties, this librarian has feared being hurt and has therefore immerrsed herself in the only love that wouldn't hurt her, books. Becoming a model will help Jelena push her to her limits and bring back her once outgoing self.

Name: Joanna Arabella Ross

Age: 27

Bio: After leaving university, Joanna Ross signed up with the Landgrabb Corporation. Some said it was talent, others her 'close' relationship with Marcus Landgrabb IV that got her to one of the company's top positions. Either way, she made it and for five years held one of the highest-paying jobs in Simmerica. However, when Marcus Landgrabb III died, shunning family tradition to pass on the company to his Vice-President Goopy GilsCarbo, many of the company's higher employees realised it was time to leave. They were right- the Landgrabb Corporation went into solid decline for a year until it went bankrupt- but after leaving, they found that very few people would employ them, and Joanna was left heartbroken when Marcus IV left her a few months later.

Her life's beginning to look up again, and she still has plenty of money left over, but her friends think that a career in modelling would be the best thing for her, and at their urging, she's agreed to try it out.

Style:

Her business career has left a lasting impression on Joanna, and she now prefers to wear 'smart but casual' clothes. Her two favourite colours are grey and pink, and she doesn't mind wearing retro when the occasion calls for it.

Kimberly, I want to ask you if you are going to run this contests and pay attention to the contestants. There are 8 contestants already, but you never gave us the info that needs to be put in the apps. I joined this contest and I want to stay in it as long as the judges like my work and give me good feedback. I don't want to waste my time or yours if you are not going to pay attention to this contest. I'm sorry, I don't want to offend anyone.

Not to sound nasty but I agree; I think this is what's holding me back from joining at the moment. I know other things in life can get in the way a lot, so I understand you can't be online all of the time, but you haven't told us what information goes in the applications or given any feedback on people's applications so far.

I've just finished a bunch of exams (whoo hoo! :D) and am looking forward to putting my efforts into something else that's a lot more fun than revision! But if I'm honest, I don't want to join something and work hard on it when the host isn't fully committed or isn't going to be able to give us that hard work back :shrug:

Is it possible that the application process can be extended until later this week, for example until Friday/Saturday? It seems that a lot of people need a lot more time and input from the host before they can apply anyway.

[Personally, I'm also going through the exam period so I won't be able to update my application with better pictures until this Wednesday at least, due to exams.]

I'd also like to know whether the applications will be judged, as this will influence whether or not I will update the pictures. There is no point if they will not be judged, but naturally I want to change them anyway for the reasons listed in my application post.

Name: Lex Bosley

Age: 19

Occupation: Cocktail Waitress/Grocery Store Clerk

Bio: When Lex's mother, Brandy, was 18, she was a bit of a groupie. Her favorite band was called Neon Flamingo, and she followed the band from show to show, met all the musicians and joined them on the tour bus for three months. She soon discovered she was pregnant. Though he has never publicly admitted it, Brandy knows that the lead singer of Neon Flamingo is Lex's father. Lex is the spitting image of her famous dad, and shares his outrageous personality. Lex was always a wild child. She didn't do well in school. She had trouble concentrating and was always in fights. She was the first to try anything, which often got her in trouble. When she was 16, she ran away from home, tired of her mother's immaturity. She returned after a month, but things have been tense in the Bosley house ever since. Lex hopes that by becoming a model, her estranged father might finally take an interest in her and her family, though she's conflicted about her feelings for the man who left her mother pregnant and alone and has never even acknowledged that Lex is his daughter.

Thanks, Freelancer, I caught that moment in the middle of the 'gossip' action.

I'm going to be really bummed if this contest doesn't continue. I really like my model, there are a ton of great contestants with talented entries, and this seems like a lot of fun. I'm itching to download some makeup and clothes for Lex, but i want to make sure this thing is on.

Oh well, I guess if it ends then I'll just have to make Lex into a Legacy sim.

Brief Biography: I grew up in Simville and lived there until I was about 16. I was home-schooled so was kind of a sheltered child. About 4 years ago, I moved back to Simville and reunited with my childhood sweetheart, Kristofer. We married 3 years ago and have three children- his daughter from before and our set of twins. I've been modeling for about 2 years now in various shoots and enjoy what I do. I also love being able to be a positive role model for young girls and show them that it's not just all about "being pretty".

Why should you win?
There are a number of reasons including helping to support my family, however I feel the most important reason is to send a message out to the world; you don't have to be a teenager or in your 20s to be a successful, sexy and elegant model, and that being a single mum does not signal the end of any career (I may be married now, however I spent over a decade raising kids on my own).

Who do you feel is your biggest competition?
Michaela Simmons. Purely because she like me has gone through some hard times and come out of difficult circumstances a much more maturer and stronger person, and I think it is this strength and maturity which sets us apart from the others.

How has your life changed with this competition?
Where do I start? *laughs* I can hardly even go to the little corner cafť without being stopped and congratulated. It seems that in Strangetown, no one can believe that the woman stood in front of them is Estelle Oakley, the quiet single parent, struggling to make ends meet.
People are constantly suggesting outfits, asking my opinion on what they're wearing... it's such a sudden change. On the other hand, my eldest daughter Dyane is embarrassed about me - she won't let me wave at her when she gets on the school bus - she's fed up of people recognising me!

I PMed the host to ask if I could give you guys a tip since I am a judge and I donít want this to be considered bias. I have yet to receive a response but here is an answer to Dreea's question and also to let Figgi know that your first picture is not a beauty shot. A beauty shot is synonymous with a close up shot. Your model should dominate the image whether in an extreme (tight shot (http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/5176/kowski2on6.jpg)) or medium (loose shot). Although, Connectzeedots didn't specify, it is the latter. Your model should be looking at the camera (you can do profile) with bare shoulders while displaying an emotion (remember to be pretty!) against a black background. What you have right now is an ad.

Here are some examples:

Ex 1 (http://i28.tinypic.com/2rwt2zc.jpg)

Ex 2 (http://i32.tinypic.com/231w82.jpg)

Ex 3 (http://i29.tinypic.com/160zd69.jpg)

Why should you win?
I am a role model to all people who have been in bad relationships. I am proof that a person can become open and optimistic even if they have gone through the toughest of hardships.

Who do you feel is your biggest competition?
Sychedelie Du'Olivier, simply because she's young, beautiful, and knows her way around this buisness of modeling.

How has your life changed with this competition?I have grown in participating in this competition. By going out of my normal saftey zone I am able to go out, flirt, have fun, and enjoy myself without fear of being hurt.

Who do you feel is your biggest competition?

Dreea - I have found that when I am saving my pic in photoshop if I go to file and click on save for web, select the extension as jpg and save the pic I do not run in the pic file being to big...for some reason saving for web it compacts it much better and makes the file more usable for forum use.

Gorgeous sorrow pic Dreea...BR_FL - love Jelena's confessinal pic...and I would like to say that everyone's application pics are outstanding and I am looking forward to seeing the Round pics :).

Why should you win?
There are a dozen pretty girls here, and I wonít say Iím the best looking one. But Iím a fast learner and I can adapt to anything. Iím want to become better, and Iíll take the advice Iím given and wonít pout over criticism. I donít get lonely being away from home, and I can model on little or no sleep. I have the drive and guts that these girls donít, and I know I can win this and go on to have a successful career.

Who do you feel is your biggest competition?
Jelena Juliani May is gorgeous, unpretentious and reserved. Sheís also a lovely person to work with, and live with.

How has your life changed with this competition?
Well, Iím not used to putting on this make up or wearing extensions. Itís just not my style, but Iím getting used to it. Iím also not used to being around so many females. I get along much better with men, but Iím learning a lot from my fellow competitors. Hopefully Iíll come out of this with a few friends.

Why do you want to win?

Winning would mean a lot to me. It would show Marcus that I can live without him, and when my baby is born I'll have a greater chance of getting a decent way of earning a living. Yes, baby. It came as a shock to me too- I only found out yesterday morning!

Who do you feel is your biggest competition?

It's hard to say- every one of them is beautiful, and each has a reason to win. At the moment, I'd probably say Jo Douglas, since she's young, but experienced. The fact that she's also stunning will probably help too. *laughs*

How has your life changed with this competition?

Aside from the baby? Well, that isn't technically to do with the competition, but it's a fairly big change nonetheless.

Since joining the contest, my friends have been telling me I look happier. I certainly feel better now I have something to aim for in life again.

I want to complain about this. You only told us that there was a task 2 for round 1 on Friday, and it was due in for Sunday. That is not enough time for me to complete it as I have busy weekends and I'm annoyed at the lack of notice we were given.

Apart from that I have enjoyed the competition so far.

and I'm trying to pay attention to you guys, but I'm currently on my mother's laptop, because it is the only 1 out of 2 computers with internet. I'm sharing it with her and my brother.

I don't know how I'm supposed to let the judges judge this round with 3 missing. I guess they'll just have to be the planned eliminated 3 models.

I'll still pm the judges to comment on your rounds, those of you who finished round 1.

Dreea

I guess they missing entries have to be the planned eliminated 3 models as you said. Could you please tell us if the scores are cumulative or something? I don't want to offend you or something, but I wish you would be more into this contest and show us more interest and support and maybe that way there won't be so many missing entries. I so want to continue this contest till the end, or at least till the judges throw me out...so please, I beg you...be more into this contest.

The winner of the contest will be chosed by the total score from each round? like round 1 + round 2 + round 3 + round 4 = total score => the higher score = the winner or they are separate and that means that the highest score from round 4 = winner ?

SCORES FOR ROUND 1


JUDGE 1: PSY10

Estelle Oakley:

Beauty: 8
A.T.U.: 7
Creativity: 5
Total: 20
Comments: Your model is beautiful. No doubt about that. I think the only area in which you were lacking is creativity and it might have to do with not understanding the task fully. Granted I do believe that the task couldíve been explained better to you and the other contestants. The beauty shot was supposed to be FIERCE. I see a pretty girl. I donít see fire behind her eyes. Overall, you did well.

Jelena Juliani:

Beauty: 8
A.T.U.: 8
Creativity: 7
Total: 23
Comments: Your modelís eyes are gorgeous. However, I donít get passionate with her facial expression. I think you might have interpreted ďscaryĒ in the task guidelines as having your model show an innocent scared like emotion. Correct me if I am wrong. I get what you were going for but for a beauty shot I donít think the expression is right. However, everything else is spot on (following directions and the basic requirements of a beauty shot). So good job on that. The second shot is nice. I donít get why her arms are in the air but I guess it really doesnít matter. (Is she singing?) Confessional is just right. It shows her relaxing at home but I still see model and pretty.

Sychedelie Du'Olivier:

Beauty: 10
A.T.U.: 10
Creativity: 8
Total: 28
Comments: Love love her eyes. The confessional is a very cute picture. Overall, I think you did very good.

Lex Bosley:

Beauty: 9
A.T.U.: 8
Creativity: 7
Total: 24
Comments: Your second shot is really nice. Very simplistic. It shows the outfit and I get a glimpse into her personality. I wouldíve liked to see her face in the confessional. The beauty shot is okay but again like some other contestants the expression for me is lacking. Also, I donít like the heavy make up. I think it takes away from her natural beauty. In the second shot she looks absolutely gorgeous with minimal make up.

Heather Dean:

Beauty: 10
A.T.U.: 8
Creativity: 8
Total: 26
Comments: Itís no secret that your model is beautiful. Her eyes in the beauty shot makes her look very scary and because of this you were the only one IMO who got the first task right. The confessional picture is cute. Job well done.

Joanna Ross:

Beauty: 7
A.T.U.: 5
Creativity: 5
Total: 17
Comments: Never ever put your head down in a beauty shot. How can we know what you look like? How can we gauge your emotion if youíre not facing us? Again with the favourite outfit shot, her face isnít visible. The confessional picture has a profile shot and it works. I think with a few more practise you'll get the hang of taking effective pics. Remember that showcasing your model is your top priority while following the task guidelines.


JUDGE 2: NIRVANA

Figgi
-Beauty = 7
-Ability to understand tasks/following of rules = 8
-Creativity = 6
Total: 21/30
Comment: She's very pretty, but there was no emotion in task 1. She didn't portray any expression and the task called for an emotional picture. Task 2 was good, but again there was no emotion.

Jelena Juliani May
-Beauty = 8
-Ability to understand tasks/following of rules = 10

-Beauty = 10
-Ability to understand tasks/following of rules = 10

Comment: Very nice job! I really liked the expression in both tasks.

Joanna Ross
-Beauty = 8
-Ability to understand tasks/following of rules = 9
-Creativity = 7
Total: 24/30
Comment: You did a good job, however for task 1, I would have liked to see her eyes open. It would've been more emotional that way. The favorite outfit shot should've showed the dress a little more. A side view of it kind of took the beauty of it away. Nice job though!

----------ROUND 2----------

TASK 1: This is going to be a high fashion beauty shot. You can photoshop it however you like (no simmerizing). Also, I should not be able to see too much of the sim's shoulders. Insane hair and makeup, anything goes. Cropped tight like the last one, and as creative as you can get.

TASK 2: Got Milk?

That's right, we're throwing you into advertizing now.

Make a Got Milk ad, with a black background, and those awesome poses your sims are capable of. Photoshopping is good.
There will be two pictures for this task, an ad and a headshot so we can see those milk mustaches.
Make it fierce!

Don't forget the facts about how good drinking milk is!

What is your biggest strength? Weakness? My biggest strength is my versatility. I can be sweet, innocent, I can be seductive, I can be a tomboy . . . I can be anything you want. My biggest weakness, of course, is my lack of experience, but I think I make up for it with my willingness to soak up what I learn.

How did you get here? (What were you doing before this?): I dropped out of college and I work two jobs, one as a cashier and one as a cocktail waitress. I havenít had a very glamorous life, but I know the value of a dollar and Iíve learned to work hard.

Kimberly, I don't understand. Are there any comments from the judges? I don't seem to be able to make rankings. Oh and the rules say that the judges must have participated in a contest as a contestant or as a judge, but that is not the case for our last judge who has 10 posts. Could you please do the rankings and explain wt ... is going on?? It's starting to be a waste of time...

The scores are out of 30, each category has 10. The rules say in order to host a contest you must have judged or been a participant in at least one contest, judging the whole way through. Nothing against having under 10 posts. I've been a member here for a while, just a lurker, that's all, and I thought I'd get involved.

What is your biggest strength? Weakness?
My biggest strength? I'm not sure, but it would probably be working out what I have, and using it to the best of my ability.

How did you get here? (What were you doing before this?)
I got here after some friends of mine found the advert for the contest in a local paper. Up until about three months ago, I was working for Landgrabb Inc., but I left just before it went bust. Unfortunately, due to a combination of the new company president taking out his frustration over his inability to manage out on all ex-employees, and the general attitude of people towards anyone associated with the company, I hadn't been able to get another job, and to top it all off, Marcus Landgrabb Junior left me for another woman.

So, the answer to what I was doing before would be: not much, other than sitting at home and feeling sorry for myself. I'm really glad I joined, actually- even if I don't win, it's snapped me out of the depression.

18th Jun 2008, 11:14 PM
Ok guys...

Firstly, there is no set criteria for how many posts a member must have to be able to judge. The only rule about judging is to follow through judging for the entire duration of the contest and to hand in your scores promptly. There is no minimum post count for members who want to judge. I think we are getting confused about the criteria a member must have to host. So as far as I can tell, all the judges for this contest are fine.

Secondly Connectzeedots, I do agree with your contestants here that three days just isn't a whole lot of time to get an entire round completed. Not everyone is able to work on their entry every day (because of work, school, etc), so you need to give them an adequate amount of time to complete their entries. Also, do not add tasks (bonus or otherwise) onto rounds only days before the task is due. If you want to include a bonus round or extra task, then post it at the beginning of the round or wait and post it next round.

What is your biggest strength? Weakness?
I would say that my biggest strength is my resourcefulness. When you spend time as a single parent, you learn to depend on your own inner strength. As to my weakness, I guess it would be often feeling insecure, about all sorts of things.

How did you get here? (What were you doing before this?)
Workwise, I've been working in a well-known restaurant (The Desert Oasis) in Strangetown for the past 11 years. I only go into work when I am not doing any modelling work; cooking is one of my passions.

TASK 2: Got Milk?

That's right, we're throwing you into advertizing now.

Make a Got Milk ad, with a black background, and those awesome poses your sims are capable of. Photoshopping is good.
There will be two pictures for this task, an ad and a headshot so we can see those milk mustaches.
Make it fierce!

Don't forget the facts about how good drinking milk is!

Actually, I do care, and I think it's rude for you to say what I care about when you're not me.

Secondly, I would not eliminate someone because of something said online. This is a contest, and as long as you produce satisfactory pictures and maintain high scores, you stay in.


And everyone? I'm not in the best part of my life either. I'm stressed, and everyone saying that I don't care and that they're glad they didn't join is just hurtful.

I'm sorry if this contest isn't perfect, but as you can all see we all have lives, and I have come to realize that I can't make all of you happy with everything, as of now it seems impossible. And when you all judge me by my not being here all the time? There are 5 contestants, from eleven at applications.

I'll finish the contest, and then I'll most likely leave S2c. I just can't handle the drama. The bickering, the badgering about time, the inferences about my thoughts and supposed feelings of apathy about this contest are just a waste of time and energy.

The headshot was ok, although could've been a little more better with the facial expression. She seemed too shy and as a model, you can't seem shy unless the photographer wants you to be.

Comment: For task 1, it wasn't creative at all to me. She didn't look exotic because she didn't have on a lot of makeup. She looked too plain and you showed too much of her shoulders. For task 2, there wasn't two pictures. One was suppose to be an ad for the milk and the other was suppose to be a headshot so that we can see her milk mustache, which wasn't in any of the pics. Your confessional pic was good. Overall, it was a good try, but it just needed to be a little more creative.

I think you'll find that aimsme added the pictures that were similar to mine after I had posted my entry for Round 2, so if anything she copied me. She did not add her Got Milk? And black and white picture until after I had added mine, and she even complimented me on how nice mine looked before she edited hers, adding the similar pictures. So I did not copy her, it was the other way round.

To be honest I'm happy to be out; I've had the practise I needed, and I am going on holiday this week too xD So I couldn't have continued anyway. Good luck everyone!

May I say it here: the hair in Figgi's shots was not copied. I'm truly sorry it's so late, but I've had no computer access almost since posting the last round. I did not copy hers either- I'd already taken my shots, and was in the process of attempting to edit them when Figgi posted.

no use getting worked up about comments.Very true- I apologise. It just hasn't been the best of days. I'm sorry to hear you're leaving S2C too. This contest has been great fun, and really interesting- kudos to you for running it, running it well, and putting up with our moans for so long.

Thanks. I'm talking to people outside the site--

they cannot believe the personal digs, and neither can I.

Thank you for actually apologizing and having some common courtesy.

Connectzeedots, isn't the maybeline photo (2nd one) exceeding the forum rules?

:lol: I'm not complaining. I'm trying to help you out. If you don't ask for an extension then bP won't let the contest exceed the one month time frame.

Who said it was directed only at you?

I never thought it was. You clearly said, "Everyone..." which by default would include me. So the question still stands have you requested an official extension?

Connectzeedots_SC

No.

After judging, I'm gone.

Well, if you expect judging to even occur you have to ask for one.

Dreea, you've been rather rude here. If you have a problem with a host you can take it up with staff and we'll investigate. Or you could be a heck of a lot gentler and just ask what's going on without being mean about it.

Connectzeedots, I'm sorry to hear your personal life isn't going too well, but please try to keep a level head and be graceful about the way you handle your contest, even if those involved aren't doing the same.

Understanding of Task- 10/10
26/30
Comments: Your pictures were very nice. I really liked your juicy couture dress and the pose your model was doing. The swimsuit pic was nice, but I would've liked to have seen a more creative pose. She looks like a cowgirl standing like that. Maybe a more seductive pose and look would've looked better. Overall, very nice job!

Beauty - 9/10
Creativity- 8/10
Understanding of Task- 10/10
27/30
Comments: I really liked the black and white picture with the eye makeup. Her facial expression helped alot. The Juicy Couture ad was good, but it looked as if she was choking herself with those beads while falling to the ground. I think if she was standing straight up while holding the beads with only one hand would've made it look a little better. The swimsuit ad was amazing. Overall, great job!

Dreea
Beauty - 7/10
Creativity- 8/10
Understanding of Task- 10/10
25/30
Comments: The black and white ad was good, although she was smiling so much that you can't really see the beauty of her eyes that well. The swimsuit pic was very nice. I really liked the background you chose for the shot. The Juicy Couture ad was nice, but the model was too far away that you couldn't really see the beauty of her face. Overall, very nicely done!

My A.T.U score for Heather Dean should be a 10. When I originally scored the round I didn't see the Juicy Couture image.

Kimberly, I finished my maybelline ad and I did't see that you added requirements for hair and make-up. I made it using other hair and other lipstick. Would that be a problem? I worked a lot on it and if I take another shot, I will have to start again...

Since we only had one contestant who turned in their Final Round on time.......




we have decided to have an automatic winner,

Maybe you didn't see the deadline was noon EST. I posted the winner a couple hours ago, and it's now 7:24 pm.


I also suggest you edit your post and add in a congratulations to aimsme, rather than saying why you didn't win.

Congrats, aimsme. =]

I'm a thread stalked and I would like to point out Dreea did ask the question 7 hours before you posted results and so should have been answered and given a chance.

aimsme, I only wish you will get a star because in my opinion this contest should not be eligible for a star. Period.

beeps
3rd Jul 2008, 1:26 AM
OK guys...

I know all too well how frustrating contests can be sometimes, but the digs and rudeness do not belong in this thread or in any other contests either. We all want this forum to be fun for everyone (host, judge, contestant, lurker, whatever) and bickering back and forth isn't fun to read or have to deal with. So even if your frustration or confusion gets the best of you, take a second to calm down before you post or even bring your issue to a Moderator to deal with if you feel like you can't handle it appropriately.

I am less than enthused as to how this contest evolved and ended, but what's done is done. It's too bad that this contest may not have finished how some wanted or some think it should have, but what's done is done. At this time, I will say that the winner aimsme is eligible for a star. The rules for earning a star simply state that the contest must have 4 rounds, there is nothing formally stated about not being eligible based on being declared winner by default. So congratulations, aimsme :)



In regards to future contests, I'd like to leave you all with a few things:

Firstly, it might be a good idea for contest hosts not to advertise the star as being a prize for winners. The rules definitely still apply that contest winners may earn a star, but hosts shouldn't imply that it is an automatic prize. It isn't up to the hosts to hand out stars, and the host doesn't know for 100% sure that he/she will indeed successfully host the 4 rounds that are necessary for a contestant to be eligible for a star.

Secondly (and this is directed to all hosts), most hosts who have asked me for an extension for their contest usually get one. I don't think I have ever turned down an extension for a contest whose host was doing an adequate job with their hosting responsibilities. There are things that come up in real life that sometimes interfere with our online life and prevent us from meeting set deadlines. But if you just let me know a little before-hand and ask politely for an extension, you will be given one. I would rather a host ask for an extension than just disregard their deadline and exceed that deadline without at least letting me know what's going on.

Lastly, please respond to each other with a little more respect - definitely more than I've seen here in this thread. No one needs to ask or answer a valid question with sarcasm. This isn't a great way to communicate. The Moderators try, very hard, to keep contests as fun as they can be. But whenever there is competition, there is the possibility for drama. So again, just take some time to write out a respectful, calm, non-sarcastic post in order to get your point across in a mature manner.

I think the contestants who participated successfully throughout this contest did an awesome job, and I wish you all good luck with future contests. (And thanks for reading my whole post!)
