MTS Competition: Calendar Winners, Activity Participants, and Multicultural Create
Hello MTSers! As part of our relatively new MTS Competitions we are announcing the winners from the LolSim Calendar Contest, advertising the activity participants, and kicking off January's competition.


November Calendar Winners!
First our winners! As we did last year, the winners will get their own news post to shine in throughout the year. We also have created TS2 and TS3 in game calendars of our winners and they are available for everyone to download and enjoy! Our panel of judges consisted of about a dozen staff members voting anonymously. Just as last year, anyone who submitted two entries had their best one chosen to let as many people win as possible.

January Create Competition - Multicultural
This January (you have all month) we are hosting a create competition. You make something and upload it just as you would any other download, but tag it with the search term #CreateMulticultural. You may make as many or as few things for it as you like, they will all be considered. Both TS2 and TS3 are allowed, and they will be judged separately. 1 in 10 will be win, so you stand a pretty good shot!

What do we mean by multicultural? Well, create something for a present-day or recent-past culture and upload it. You will be judged on the quality of the upload and how faithfully you recreated it, so do your research and teach us something in your post. Chances are, we have no idea what it is or why it's important. We've had some fantastic examples of these uploads in the past: N8ive Sims First Nations project, Jeka's Russian Clay Stove, Masaharu777's Japanese style lots, Nouk's 'dark lady' hairs, TwoHorse's Indian Bindis, jadedicara's Scottish Kilts, Gerald_Sim_'s Indonesian Batik's patterns, -Shady-'s Mexican Flair lot. These are by no means the only types of uploads or cultures that should be represented, it's just what I could dig up in one evening. You also don't have to only stick to your own culture/country/ethnic group, just try to do justice to whatever you make.

What's in it for us you say? Well, all winners (the 24 lucky calendar winners are our first) and whoever earns a spot as a winner of the Multicultural Create Competition will receive 3 fantastic prizes! Behind door number one is a pretty little blue ribbon icon for their avatar, the second prize is a purple achievement badge on their profile page (participates who do not win receive a red one as our thanks) and the final prize is a fantastic in game trophy item! It doesn't just look snazzy, but it helps your sims out with skilling. Winners will receive the version for the game they submitted to.

Well, that's it, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
1 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

Halie, no fantasy stuff for this theme. We do fantasy themes a lot (and karen lorraine, historical stuff too) so this time we are doing current or barely recent past cultures. But, if you really want to do a project, do it! Don't let our silly competition stop you, just know that you prolly won't win if you don't fit the category as well as others. There is also no limit to the number of things you can upload to this competition, so its not like you need to put all your eggs in one basket.

Yippee! ...back burner-ing New Year's party time dress _Mesh is made but have to work on the 2 and 3 lods.. and starting on some pow-wow gear! (I have no idea what I can get done in a month.. Cross your fingers but .... you know... when-ever time.. lol ...maybe it's time to get the pow-wow horse parade gear off the back burner... I've had an interesting time on TS3 clothing meshes... different from TS2.....

edit: I'd be more likely to finish if I stuck to TS2 rather than TS3....

Is this a parts of the world type thing or a celebration thing or both? So you could do a celebration only celebrated in america or japan or something like that, or is it more create (insert country of choice) lot/ item/ whatever else?

Always remember that you are absolutely unique.
Just like everyone else.

Could "recent past" be as far back as my 2 Great Grandmother in Scotland?

Her journal was found in my Great Grandfathers belongings and Ive been scanning it into my computer. While doing so I couldn't help reading some of it and it details some of her experiences in the Textile industry before she moved to America when my Great Grandfather was a teenager. Just for a time frame my Great Grandfather was born in 1895 and passed away at the age of 105 in 2000. He was a little bit of a horder and going thru his paperwork has been an extensive & fascinating process.

I have already started creating a custom Textiles career for S2 and perhaps it will fit this category? The career starts as Aprentice and ends as a Haberdasher (still a name used as a seller of custom tailored clothing in parts of Scotland)
