SHIPPERS' CONTEST (yes, we're doing it again!)

Recommended Posts


soompi-shippers-vday-contest.png

Flowers are blooming and birds are singing*... love is in the air!

(*depending on where you live)

OVERVIEW AND PRIZES
Hi Soompiers, Valentine's Day is coming up! What better way to celebrate than with the forum that celebrates love in its most ideal form? For the second year in a row, we will have a friendly contest to determine which couples reign supreme!
The purpose of this contest is to introduce newcomers to the wonderful shipping communities within Soompi. We all want to know who your couple is and what makes them special, so show us your best text, photos, artwork, videos, and more! We will display some of the best content on our editorial site to give everyone the chance to get to know your couple. 

The winning teams will receive a special member status on Soompi which will be reflected whenever they post (similar to FOS status, but with your own chosen unique name and color). At the staff's discretion, one person from the fandom may be granted limited moderating privileges to moderate within their thread. These privileges may or may not be permanent, but are guaranteed for at least ONE YEAR.
Last year, as you may know, the winning teams were YongSeo and SoGong. We have decided that while these teams may participate, they will not be eligible for the prize, because they already have the member status.

INSTRUCTIONS
Here's how it will work. If you think your team has what it takes to participate in all four rounds (1. photos and info, 2. essay, 3. fanart, and 4. original video), you can enter by REPLYING IN THIS THREAD.

This contest will have TWO TRACKS: long-time couples, and those couples whose threads were started after January 1, 2014. In order to participate, your couple must have an active thread here on Soompi.
This contest will have TWO CATEGORIES OF WINNERS: overall fan vote and staff pick.
Therefore there will be FOUR WINNERS TOTAL.
This year, to minimize confusion and allow teams to have more time to work on the rounds, we will outline the instructions for each round in advance. 

ROUND 1: PHOTOS AND INFO
The first round will start off with a bang! Members will compile entries as usual on the forums, but for the first time, we will open voting on our news site. This means that we will not be counting votes on the forums for Round 1. The entries will be posted as an article, and everyone will be allowed to vote in Round 1, even non-Soompiers.

    • Photos:

This thread will serve as discussion, and you can also enter your team in this thread. We will be opening another thread for Round 1 entries shortly – you may not post anything in that thread except your entries.

1) For the first round on written info, whose name/ages/occupation is required? Our name or our OTP? If our name..does it mean only ONE representative from each team?2) If we done the written intro, we should posted it on this thread right?? http://forums.soompi.com/en/discussion/2026075/shippers-contest-round-1-photos-and-info?new=1 melkimx said: rainshout said: Hello, dear admin.

I am positive DongHae couple thread will partecipate!

I also want to know if we should choose a representative of our thread to entry and if we pass the rounds, only that user can entry each part of the contest. Also, will non-soompi users be able to vote on the poll? There are many fans out there that are ot registered users over here that I am sure would want to help voting in the poll for their OTP.

Another question: then we can post our entries both here and on the other thread... or here we should just say if we will partecipate or not? Can we also post the entry on our couple thread so that other shippers can comment on it before we actually submit it as an entry for the contest?

of course! i actually expect that people should do that, so everyone can review the entry first.

sorry admin if we have a lot of inquiry, its our first time.. thank you admin, two unedited single photos. so no collage^^ sorry
The reason is that the photos will be posted in an article. Articles look better with a large hi-res photo. Also, we want everyone's couple to be treated the same way, so consistency is better.
