Rounds will include all the normal things you'd find in a womans magazine, fashion & make up features, advertisements, coffee break fiction, a problem page, even a hunk of the week!

Your sim will feature in all the pages of the pullout.

There will be 4 Rounds excluding application. - Each round will last 4-5 days.

Eeek! Ok, I'm here and nervous!!

19th Nov 2007, 1:39 PM
well done of your first hosting job jonesi ... this sounds really interesting. i may enter this one. is it all about a mag/newspaper? ... and what kind of judging is involved (what will we be judged on)

19th Nov 2007, 1:49 PM
same here, anyway headshot with make-up i'm supposing? and can the top part of the head be cut off? =] or full head?

19th Nov 2007, 2:00 PM
Thanks Jo :D Basically the tasks evolve around things you would find in a womans magazine, but since we wouldn't have time to actually make a magazine, I went with the concept of a womans pullout in a newspaper.
Regarding the judging I was thinking summat like below..

Tasks will be judged on the following
Out of 10 for each part -

Task rules followed
Sims appearance
Overall Creativity

Total from a possible /50 per task.

Emaone, the headshot can be anything you like as long as you can see the face of the sim, so make up/no make up, b&W/colour, head cut off (not literally!) or full head shot...whatever you like :o)

19th Nov 2007, 2:02 PM
alright. Thanks Jonesi. Look out for my app then. =]
oh when you say pics must be 550x650, if the kb is too big, can we link it? =]

19th Nov 2007, 2:04 PM
Yep, that's fine

19th Nov 2007, 7:51 PM

Ooo my first apps, they look great!! And nope the apps don't have to be 550x650 :)

20th Nov 2007, 1:24 PM
I know photoshopping is required but to what extent? Excessive? Minor photoshopping?

20th Nov 2007, 1:40 PM
I wouldn't say excessive, nope. In game poses and in game backgrounds are fine...
Where photoshop might come more into play is adding text to images and in one round I have an image you have to include in your picture (although I've already cut around it/give it a transparent background) but that's about it really..I'm sure you could do these things without having photoshop, but some sort of image program where you can add text and copy/paste stuff would be useful.

** The Mini Task is optional but is a chance to top up your score as the judges favourites will add 5 points.**

Task 1 - Papped!

I know celebs have a dislike for paps....but hey, it's a job isn't it and the sims in this neighbourhood love celeb gossip. The bigger the star, the bigger the sales...

For this task your sim will turn into a celeb who has been papped.

The character of your sim depends on the poses and facial expressions you should include.
If she's a "nice" celeb then she'll gladly pose for our lowly old photographer...maybe even throw in a smile, if she's a bit of a diva then she'll be angry or hide herself...Choose whther your celeb is a "Saint or Sinner" and base your picture on this.
You can have your celeb being caught doing something she shouldn't or just out shopping, the scenario is up to you.
Make up a headline for the "papped" page and include that and the title "Papped!" on your image.

In brief -
*You should provide 1 picture of your sim being "papped".
*Other sims/props can be included in the picture.
*Your image should be 550x650. (portrait).
*You can link to a larger image.
*Include your headline and the title "Papped!" on your image.

Saint Or Sinner Interview
Answer the questions below as the celeb you where in Task 1.

What was your last random act of kindness?
What do you dislike about yourself?
What is the most extravagent thing you've ever bought?
What is the worst lie you've ever told?
What is the worst thing you've done when drunk?

Task 2 - Hunk of the Week

In our pullout we giving our readers the chance to pose with some of our hot male models.
Each week a reader who has wrote in gets the chance to engage in some fantasy and this week it's your turn!!

* Picture of your sim with a male mode
* Can be wearing anything, so naked, underwear, formal etc..
* Can be in B&W or Colour or a mixture of the two.
* You can download the male model or make him yourself.
* Background, theme etc is up to you.
* Must be pictured waist up or full body. (no headshots)
* Pose must be "intimate" not "posing".
* Image must be 550x650 (portrait)

Mini Task - Optional

1 picture showing your sims aspiration (as stated in your application)

Her celeb persona is much like her real one, an outgoing party animal and a slacker, except as a celeb she's rich. So for her papped shot I chose to have her dancing on a table pretending she doesn't notice the pap but in all reality that's probably the reason she's up there- to get her photo taken.

For Hunk of the Week she chose linuslover30's Shinzon (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=253298). (Okay maybe he's not technically an alien but raised by aliens, but you gotta be ultra nerdy to know that, so ha!) The bald didn't match in the back so I was forced to add hair.

The aspiration photo I did kind of ad like so it would fit in the magazine/pull out style.

I'm pretty sure I did everything right, but if something's not how you meant it I'll fix it.

Star Lilly, your thing is so gorgeous

Star.Lilly, a very impressive Round I you've created there!

Aww, thank you so much for the compliments guys. Much appreciated. :) I confused myself with some of the round so I decided to keep it simple.

As for my graphics card, let me just say that Photoshop is a wonderful thing. lol It's actually an old nvidia that I'm desperately hoping to upgrade soon.

Wow, wow, wow, wonderful entries everybody. I love what everyone has come up with so far. This was a really fun round Jonesi. :)

TASK -1 : Papped

http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p151/Addelise/She/1-1.jpg (http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p151/Addelise/She/1.jpg)

INTERVIEW : Saint or Sinner

What was your last random act of kindness? Me and one of my colleague we setted up a 'librairy bus' for those who can't go to the librairy because it is too far away. It is a bus with librairy ooks in it. People can borrow the books from us, they just have to bring them back two weeks latter. The idea was to bring books where they don't usually go. You should see the little kids faces when they see the bus coming. It pays back every single second we've put into the project.
What do you dislike about yourself? I am sometimes not patient enough, it is a problem because I work with 30 kids every days.
What is the most extravagent thing you've ever bought? I would say a pair of shoes with very high heels, I can't wear high heels at work
What is the worst lie you've ever told? I can't answer that question, my mom is a very faithful reader of the Crumplebottom Times and I don't want her to know it.
What is the worst thing you've done when drunk? Sorry, same as the previous one. But, anyway, most of the time, when I am drunk I fel asleep

2nd Dec 2007, 11:38 PM
lovely challenges,
for the fashion spread do you want 2 poses per photo, making a total of two photos or two photos per page, making a total of four pictures?

3rd Dec 2007, 1:25 AM
It's a total of four different poses and four different pictures but two of them will go on one page and the other two on the other page. I hope that makes sense.

3rd Dec 2007, 11:00 AM


the pictures for your task is great, very inventive, also really like the logo you made for the title...the only thing that lets the picture down a little is that the text goes over into the picture boarder.
Good answers for the interview, she's definately got her halo on straight!
Great shot for the hunk task, love that the colours tie in with each other and the extra text is a nice touch.
Love the knowledge picture, the background is wicked and the goggles and reflection adds a little something to it. Excellent entry!

I really like the papped task, the background you've used blends in well with the sims and it doesn't look at all "pasted" on. The poses are great too, I think the text could have been a bit more "stand outish" but other than that a great task 1 piccy.
Interesting answers for the interview, she sounds like a bit of a handful, wouldn't want to be her sister!!
Really like your hunk picture, it looks a little "squashed" but that didn't put me off at all, exactly what was asked for, an intimate shot.
The mini challenge was nicely done, although for a "pleasure" sim she could have looked a littl happier but all in all a great entry!

Really liked your whole entry!
I thought the papped task was really nicely laid out and your graphics are lovely and i liked the little picture of Natalia kissing her bf, nice touch.
Again, great answers in the interview, Natalia's far too nice for her own good!
The background you chose for the hunk of the week task was lovely and your models looked beautiful althouh the shot was more posing than intimate which let it down a little.
Knowledge picture is great, I love the background you chose and the text is a great touch also, she looks very swotty with her glasses on, lol

Now this is the kinda story that would grab headlines...naughty fiona, looks like she could do with a hand raising those kids! Imaginative papped task, I like that you thought out of the box and wasn't afraid to go bad!
I felt sorry for fiona after reading her interview, she's not a happy bunny is she, why doesn't she leave her hubby?!
The hunk task was nice, pose was intimate but it didn't blow my socks off, some lighting might have been nice.
I really think Fiona's aspiration shouldn't have been family judging on her papped pic and interview but the shot is a good one and her kids are so cute!

I'm not keen on the colours you used for the papped task BUT i love the pictures, I like how you encorporated three pics to tell a story.
I really liked the interview answers, they made me chuckle, especially the last one, you can really see her character!
This would have been my favourtie hunk picture if the left hand side wasn't as plain...the pose is great and i love the lighting, but a couple of palm trees or some deco on the left would have made all the difference.
The mini task was nice but didn't blow me away, the pose and lighting are good but the background is a little boring...although I guess bookstores aren't the most interesting places to look at!

I loved the concept behind your papped piccy, the close up on the ring was a nice touch. I thought the models looked a little squashed or large in the head? But all in all a good entry.
The answers to the interview where great, made me laugh...Victoire's mum will be quite intrigued toknow what she's been hiding now!
The hunk pose was good but I would have liked to have seen Victoire's face..but it was definately intimate, was there some "off camera action" after the shoot?!
The mini chellenge was nice but again didn't blow my socks off, the books are a little boring to look at, thinking outside the box would have made this shot better.

I absolutely loved your papped task...the detail you put into it was amazing, down to the birdseye view of the coffee cup! All the the little details worked perfectly together...great task 1.
Great answers for the interview, direct and to the point, but effective.
The hunk shot was nice, I liked the background and the model you chose is cute! However the pose isn't very intimate, Jessica looks like she'd rather not be there...I think the pic would have benefited from some darker lighting so that it blended in with the background more.
I really liked the family picture for the mini task, I liked the touch with the picture in the background also, the two ladies was quite a nice touch.

Love the papped picture, it's something you just wouldn't want to photographed doing, lol background & lighting are good and I loved the pose, bet she cringed when that hit the headlines!
Your answers for the interview where great, she's quite the little madam eh, success can do that to people I guess!
Wasn't too keen on your hunk task...I thought her pose was nice and quite intimate but the hunks pose is uninspiring and not very intimate at all. The background is nice and I like her outfit though.
Your pleasure pic is lovely, she looks like she's having great fun!

Wow, I totally didn't expect to be a round favourite. Thanks judges!

4th Dec 2007, 12:38 AM
I liked all the round favorites too, my own especially :lol: ANywhoo, will we be seeing what the scores are based on like a breakdown of what it was out of for each pic and the criteria or something. The comments were great I just dont know how to swallow the score like that without any specifics. Does that sound right?

4th Dec 2007, 5:22 AM
First off, thank you so much judges for the kind scores and comments. :)

I'm not sure if I've done this right, so please let me know if something is wrong. :)

Great start starlily!

4th Dec 2007, 7:53 AM
thanks Psy10!

I ended up combining the fashion spread images because I think it's important to view them together,
there is a line signifying where the divide is.

Gorgeous aajolie. Im working on mine ath the moment.

4th Dec 2007, 10:34 AM
Wow, they both look great!

4th Dec 2007, 5:11 PM
Oh, I hate to do this, but I have to drop out. I was looking forward to this round, too.

My game is just completely shot. I've tried everything, but I honestly think TSS really messed some things up somehow, it hasn't been right since I installed that. The only thing is to reinstall.

Normally I would do just that, but I have a spanking new computer due to arrive Friday or Saturday, and I can't see spending the time to reinstall on this old computer only to be rushed to get this round done.

I think I have enough screenshots to complete another contest I'm in, but I hadn't even begun setting up for this round of SHE.

Anyway, again... I am so sorry. Thanks, Jonesi, I love the contest. Thanks to the judges and good luck everyone! I'll still be watching. Great entries all!

Ill take crime-payback. Ive done the romance thing before so this should be a challenge. One question slightly unrelated to the round. Ive been writing crumplebottom times on the bottom of my pages but now you stated its SHE. Color me confuzzled? Is it kinda like a mini magazine called she in the newspaper. That would make sense cus I always wondered why the contest was called she. lol! Anywhoo, awesome round! Another hit!

Thanks starlily!

7th Dec 2007, 3:45 AM
Lol, yeah it's a pull out in the newspaper, but nay matter, your entries have been fab regardless!

Judges Comments, Favourites & Scoring


You have a very nice blending of the pictures in your Task 1, the warm tones of the colours mesh very well with what your model is wearing. I like the creativity especially in the 1am picture, very apt for a party girl! The individuality you gave each of the reviewers in Task II was nifty, too; as well as giving them an actual face. Your overlay of the bigger model over the miniature background pictures in your Mini was creative. Well done!

Your pictures were very attractive and beautiful. Gold isn't my colour but your fashion pages looked great and I liked the pictures of the judges from the make-up review and their comments.


I adored your Task I, and it blended together just so. Your model really suited those clothes, and the hairstyle you gave her was a very good choice. I think your first pose was the most creative, showing her holding and leaning onto the sign. The Task II showed a very different slant, with the pale tones but it suited her again, I think. Your Mini was my second favourite of what you did overall. Putting her picture over the crowd as you did, and using the Sim camera was very well done.

I really liked your makeup review and mini task. They really show what I wanted to see. With the fashion pages, I would have liked it if you would have done something with the light instead of just dark.


Natalia seems to just suit everything that you put on her! She manages to look so cool wearing glasses, and even that hat- nice choice using a shorter hairstyle on her, too, and opting for a longer one in the latter two shots of Task I. I liked your third shot of that the best, she looked very sleek. Your Task II was my favourite thing overall though; it looked like a funky, realistic spread in an actual magazine. The lipstick even matched the background on the review sheet. Your Mini was very pretty and sexy, too.

I so loved this entrie, you fashion pages are absolutely gorgeous, the makeup review is beautiful and your sim is such a good model.


I have to say, your Task one was a close second to my favourite. I love how the clothes and her hair colour matched the background you decided to use. Your clothes and the use of colour was great! Again your latter two Tasks were very nice, but your Task I was definitely the best.

I loved your fashion pages. If I have to be fair, I thought you makeup review was a bit dull. And your mini task was good.


Your second two poses in your Task I were my favourites- she had attitude in that pose! I liked the colours you used, and it worked well with the clothes you had her wearing. In The Task II your model looked very pretty, I liked that she wasn’t straight up facing the camera, but we got a different angle. Again for you, I like the different personalities that came out in the reviewers. Your model looked very studious in the Mini picture, so that certainly matched what she did, so well done!

You fashion pages were very good. I would have like a little more colour and comment on the makeup review and your mini task was really beautiful.


As your Mini was my favourite, I will start their first. I don’t know what it was about it exactly, but it just stood out for me. It was sleek, and I loved that you used black and white for one of the pictures. Nice going! I liked the little background pattern you had going in your spread; and then the close-up birds eye view in your third picture; it was different. Overall you did a very good job.

I absolutely loved your mini taks. But I'm not so sure about the other 2. The ideas are great but the fashion pages were a little dead, they just didn't have so much power. And the picture in you makeup review just wasn't it.

Lizzy's Comments

I love how you did task 1 based through the different times of the day, really nice touch! The text was great and I love the poses and outfits you choose. I realise you went for a golden theme but using the golden backgrounds as well as the clothing, hair etc made the model not stand out as much as she could have. Task 1 rules called for 2 poses per page with a total of 2 pictures but maybe I didn't make this clear enough.
In task 2 I really like the little pics of the reviewers and how you seemed to match their answers to their characters, Mrs beaty's comment is so funny! I like how you set out the page as a magazine layout also, the only thing that could have been prettier was your models headshot, I definately prefer her with hair!
Your mini task was really done well, you obviously spent alot of time on it, the pics are great and I love the little pictures behind the models. Great entry!

I love your task 1 pics, maybe a little more "rock chic" than "gothic chic" but they're great regardless. The colours you've used in the background are wicked and I love the props! Outfits, hair and makeup are all spot on. I really like that you gave each page a title and the text looks amazing. Can't really fault this task at all except that it should have been 2 poses per page with a total of two pictures.
With regards to your task 2 picture I feel that the text could have stood out a little better by maybe choosing a different colour, but I like that you went with foundation which is often a difficult one to portray and you pulled it off nicely, Jersey looks very fresh faced in the ad!
Your mini challenge is very creative, I love the camera and microphone props, she does look a little pasted on to the background, that could have been avoided by adding some effects to the background or some lighting to jersey, but top marks for creativity!

Your task 1 is great, I love the colour and vibrancy of the first two pics and wish it had carried on through to the second two...I feel like I'm looking at two different themes rather than one BUT all pictures where extremely well put together, love the text and the little addition of the page numbers..and Natalia looks beautiful as always!
Your Task 2 was my favourite, Natalie looks gorgeous, great choice of hairstyle and make up. The page is well laid out, use of text is excellent and the reviews are very professional. Well done!
Your mini challenge is really lovely, pose and outfit are wicked and I love the little sparklies you've added.

I love the first two outfits you chose but the second two don't really follow the same theme. The poses are very nice and she looks like she's having great fun..I would have liked to see some props in the background as apposed to just plain but the background is definately funky! I'm not too keen on the hairstyle you chose I think she would have suited a plain colour better, great use of text and love the little page number additions.
Your make up add was really nice, I love the eyeshadow you chose, it's very pretty. I feel this ad was let down a little by the text, it could have been a bit more exciting and laid out better, some effects might have given it the kick it needed.
Your mini challenge is hysterical, I really liked it..it doesn't look like she has full control over her class, does it! Use of props is very good and I loved all the kids going haywire, great task!

I love the outfits you chose, the poses are great and very "professional" and the hairstyles and make up are lovely. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the backgrounds, props would have been great as apposed to plain colours. The text is great and I like how you've labelled each part of the outfit with corresponding letters to the text.
The make up review is great, the readers comments are good and I like the way you've set out the text. I feel the picture of Jessica could have been a little larger though.
Your mini task is really lovely, Jessica looks very serene and I really like the pose and props, the background is great too, really like the outfit and the glasses give her that "intellectual" touch!

I think you may have been the only entry to set out task 1 as I imagined it would be, two poses per page. I really loved how you've combined all the tasks to match each other! The text on task 1 is great, I love the little flashes of colour here and there. The outfits you chose are lovely as are the backgrounds, the only thing that lets this task down are the first two poses..where they are nice, the model should have been making eye contact with the camera or at least looking up, but the second two poses are good.
Task 2 is wicked, again I really like the white background so it appears like a magazine page and I love that little "sketch" of the product, very inventive! All the text is great and love the little touches at the bottom like the page number and the colour in the text etc. I feel that the sims skin is maybe a little too shiny but I still loved the ad!
Your mini task was my favourite, again, the black and white background I just loved (and may be borrowing for some of my future contest entries!) it's a very unique mini task and not being able to see your sim very well doesn't actually take away from the pic at all, the little map is a great touch and I love the "A" text, it's beautiful and really boosts the page!

Lizzy's Favourite entry overall is ........ (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1077964&postcount=97) adding an extra 5 points to their score!

TASK 1 : Ask Victoire


TASK 2 : Coffee Break Fiction

- Whatever it takes -


Jodie was a young and beautiful woman. But, her severe mouth and her focus on her career were enough reasons to discourage any man from dating her. Whatever effort her best friend, Anna would put in the task of finding the perfect match, it would always fail: the handsome young men were discouraged by Jodie’s hate for children and family life and she was daunt by their will to commit into a relationship which would be a time consuming and useless leisure which she couldn’t afford if she wanted a promotion.
One day, as she came into work with Anna, one of their co workers came to them and said to Jodie that the boss, Mr Porter was waiting for her. She hurried into his office, hoping he would announce that her dream had finally come true. But, instead, he started chatting, asking her about her life, her family:
- I am sure that your husband is really proud to have a wife like you!

Jodie hesitated a second on the answer she should give, and then answered:
- Yes, he is… he is extremely proud.

Darren Porter seemed satisfied by what she said. He then asked:
- And your children as well! But… do you have children?

Again, Jodie hesitated; should she tell him the truth or not?!
- Yes, one son, he is proud of me too. But, you know, I don’t talk much about work with him.

There too, Porter was pleased by the answer, so pleased that he proposed:
- Why don’t you come with them for dinner on Friday, we will talk together about your achievements for AJP.

Jodie realised, too late, in what situation she had put herself, but could only accept the invitation. When she got out of the room, she explained her problem to Anna, trying to find together a solution to her problem. Anna finally came out with an idea:
- There is no way you can get a husband and a son by Friday. So, why don’t I lend you my son?
- Yeah, but, what about the husband?
- Just hire one for the dinner...

continues in SHE Issue 2

I think it is more than what you asked for, but I hope it is fine.


* Have you enjoyed the contest so far? Yes, it is really great! I am having a great time. It is hard, but really fun.
* What have been your favourite and least favourite tasks so far? Least favourite: this round’s aunt task: I had to shorten my answers so much! Favourite task: the same, the aunt task, it was really fun to come up with the answers.
* What would you like to see if you make it to the final? The front and back cover maybe? The editorial as well?
* Who do you think your main competition is? God, every one is so good! I am in it for the fun, that’s all so, I wish that the best wins.

“You can’t do this!”
She screamed as he backed away slowly. She could see the smirk on his face as he stepped into the moonlight let in by the window. The familiar room was otherwise dark and seemed now sullied by the invasion of this imposter.
“You sly little bastard. You think they won’t get you once they get me?”
“I’ve already got it all worked out honey. Im gonna cut a deal and get six months max in a cushy upstate cell while you rot like a little bitch in the state pen.”
His words cut like venom and she knew she couldn’t allow him to destroy all she had worked so hard for. Not like this.
“Have you no idea who I am?” She screamed letting rage overcome her good sense. She was a shrewd businesswoman who’d castrated many a man who had gotten in her way. She couldn’t allow this ex-con blackmailer to bring her down.
“I’m Alicia Cartwright and don’t you ever forget it!” She spat at him getting as close to his face as he would allow. He laughed,
“Ms. High and mighty. Think you’re smarter than everyone huh? Well the game’s over now unless…” He turned away to the moonlit window and stood willing her to fold. To come to him for a way out. He was positive he’d have Alicia where no man could ever get her before, begging on her hands and knees.
“What do you want you f**king piece of sh*t?”
He laughed again. This time arching his back and howling like a fox in the moonlight. He was very pleased with himself.
“Oh such words, I thought you were a lady.”
“Cut the bullsh*t and tell me what the hell you want.” She didn’t get this far in her career without having to deal with the likes of him. She knew they always wanted money and they were often too stupid to know her true worth.
“Five million,” He said without hesitating.
“You’ll have it by Friday.” She responded as she smoothed her black gown almost metaphorically. Things would all be straightened out now.
Out of nowhere he continued,
It was all she could do to keep from lunging at him. This rat bastard she thought but she took the bait and responded.
“ Plus a clean record.” He answered.
“ How am I supposed to pull that?” She answered turning away. She couldn’t allow him to get the upper hand.
“You’re the great Alicia Cartwright, this shouldn’t be that hard for you. Get it done or else.” He walked confidently out of the room without waiting for an answer. He had outplayed the great Alicia Cartwright, or so he thought.
“F**k!” She screamed into the darkness. She couldn’t believe what just went on. She knew if she called in any favors on his behalf the feds would know for sure that he had something on her. She knew they would start investigating and she didn’t need anyone prying into her business. Yet she couldn’t allow him to talk and risk going to prison. She couldn’t trust anyone with this. It was trusting him that had gotten her here. She knew what she had to do. She had to get rid of Martin Shultz and she had to handle this one alone. She slowly picked up her glass and gathered her nerves to go face her guests that were waiting on the other side of the door. Martin Shultz had messed with the wrong woman.


* Have you enjoyed the contest so far?
Yes, it has been a welcomed change of pace from typical beauty contests. Pretty ingenious.
* What have been your favourite and least favourite tasks so far?
My favorite task was the Make up review. I liked that the task basically entailed us doing an ad for the makeup then taking on different characters to review it. My least favorite task was the papped page just because it was the same to a task I had already done for a different contest.
* What would you like to see if you make it to the final?
Definately more advertising, maybe for lotion or perfume.
* Who do you think your main competition is?
I would say it is star.lily because I think her stuff is pretty good and so do the judges.

final journey excerpt
She was dreaming. Occasionally she could just tell. The water was warm and she swam through it with little resistance. Tick. They say that the key to lucid dreaming is to notice the inconsistencies; once you become aware of those you become aware that the only explanation is that you’re dreaming. Tick. In this case the big tip off was the water itself. There isn’t an ocean anywhere near her home. Tick. The sun beat down on her as she continued to swim. Stoke, breathe, stroke, and breathe. It was a peaceful mantra that kept her going on beat of the ticking. Wait, ticking?

Her eyes fluttered open, and then the brightness made her wish they hadn’t. Everything was so white, nothing at all like her bedroom. Where was she? She surveyed the room- moving only her eyes. The rest of her didn’t move, paralyzed with fear. It was almost bare, giving off the impression of being sterile. It was like a hospital but where were the nurses? The doctors? The other patients? Then the answer came to her, she must still be dreaming! Moving slowly she brought her hand to her arm and pinched like people from TV do when trying to wake themselves from dreams. Nothing. She closed her eyes tightly and tried again. Tick. Her eyes opened again, where was that damn ticking coming from? She glanced around again, this time with determination ,and her eyes settled on something sitting in the corner. That wasn’t… it couldn’t be!

* Have you enjoyed the contest so far?
I have, it's my first here and it's been quite fun.
* What have been your favourite and least favourite tasks so far?
My favorite was probably the fashion editorial, and my least favorite was the
agony aunt task, it was tough coming up with answers.
* What would you like to see if you make it to the final?
Perhaps a cover, it seems about right since we've made a lot of the inside of the pull out.
* Who do you think your main competition is?
That's a tough one, anyone who manages to submit an entry each round? Star.Lilly is definitely a front runner.

Exerpt from "Family Affair: An Autobiography"
"I'm sorry miss, but it is imperitive that you have a college education. You have no degree, no qualification and no previous experience." The woman will long, shellacked hair and perfectly manicured nails did not look me in the eye.

"Listen, Ms. Cooper, but how am I meant to get previous experience when even you won't hire me? You need to be hired to get it."

She blushed. "But not in a high paying firm like ourselves."

"It's not a flipping lawyer job! I just want to get the receptionist role." I tried to reason.

"Why don't you try somewhere else, dear. Like, "flipping" burgers or washing some dishes!" She smiled fakely.

"Of course, because we all have to start somewhere."

"Yes, dear." She nodded a little too enthusiastically.

"Listen, mum, I just want this job." She jumped back at my calling her that.

"You know I don't like you adressing me as that when I'm at work--" She glared.

"Are you going to give me this job or am I going to have to succumb to cardiac arrest right here on your dry-cleaned carpet right now!" I almost screamed.

Shakily, she picked up the phone. "Derek, honey. Alice wants to work for us...I know you couldn't care less, but she's our daughter..." I snorted. "Please? I know you're busy." The sleeve on her Chanel blouse slid up, revealing a fresh bruise. I sighed. "No, Derek...Don't go to the pub tonight, I'm begging you!"

I got up and took my bag, heading back to the mansion where I only happened to live with two people who happened to be my parents.

Have you enjoyed the contest so far? Definitely! Every round has been a challenge yet so much fun to complete.
What have been your favourite and least favourite tasks so far? I think my least favourite would have to have been the advice collumn...I found that really hard.

Rather than hold the contest up any longer than necessary, I'm afraid I'm going to have to drop out. My internet has been down over the past 6 or so days and it doesn't leave much time to hand in a decent entry.

I'm really disappointed, this contest is amazing Jonesi, I've had such a great time and I really hope to see a cycle 2!

Good luck to all the entries still running. You've all done amazing work. :valentine

13th Dec 2007, 1:31 PM
Thanks for letting me know Star, sorry to see you go, you've been great!

Peeps, you've blown me away with the entries for this round, they're wicked!!

So we're just missing Psy's entry and Lillubibi's confessional and then I'll close up this round, have to go Christmas shopping soon, so hopefully by the time I get back I can get the final posted.

We're not gonna have any eliminations in this round...I was gonna have two but with Star Lily dropping out it seems unfair to just eliminate one after you've all worked so hard so you'll all get to do the final! :o)

Oo and bexstar, I can't see your Leo pic, just getting a red cross x

13th Dec 2007, 1:42 PM

Task Two | In The Blink of An Eye (http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/Psy10/BookCover.jpg)

Michelle awoke to find a gun being held to her head. She gasped loudly and screamed before being told to “shut up!” She eyed the room in hopes of finding her husband. The masked man told her that he and his gang were holding on to Antony. If she did anything stupid he’d be gone. All she had to do was wait for instructions on how to get her husband back. For the amount of time that she’d been with Antony she knew exactly how this would end.

Michelle knew that marrying someone in the business was not a good idea but she couldn’t help but fall in love with Antony Tucci. She revealed something in him that everyone else wouldn’t even know existed. They had met when the night air was cold and unrelenting. She was on her way to her sister’s house down on Iveen Street when a block of fallen snow from a nearby tree fell on top of her head and on the ground causing her to slip. Michelle hit the pavement face first. She let out a small audible yell. When she lifted her head she saw a group of men eyeing her. One of the men came to her aid. He helped her to her feet and introduced himself.

“I’m Antony. Quite a fall you had there.”

Michelle smiled at him and brushed a few loose strands of hair out of her face. She didn’t speak. She watched as he gathered her belongings. He asked if she wanted to sit down and have his cousin look at her leg to see if it was broken. Before she could decline he had taken her hand and led her inside. Antony ordered a small soup for her despite her protest. He explained that his family owned the restaurant.

…continued in the next issue of SHE.

I know that my genre is romance but I took a different spin on it. Hope that’s okay. :)


* Have you enjoyed the contest so far?

Very much so. I think the rounds are awesome.

* What have been your favourite and least favourite tasks so far?

My favourite has to be the Papped! task and I actually don’t have a least favourite.

* What would you like to see if you make it to the final?

Makeovers? Or maybe an actual cover of SHE magazine.

* Who do you think your main competition is?

Everyone. :lol:

Sorry I'm late closing up guys...got held up with shopping longer than I anticipated and now I'm absolutely shattered!
I'll pm the judges now and try and get the final round up asap..

13th Dec 2007, 10:19 PM

Task 1

The Front Page
Every publication needs a front page, right?
Your model should look natural and approachable on the front page...High glamour we're not...we want something the housewives won't feel threatened by...but at the same time "glossy" enough to attract younger career girls. Balance is the key to good sales!

Your shot should be either a waist up shot or head shot, whichever you prefer.

Once again, font, colour, background, layout are all up to you, but remember we want something that'll catch our customers eye, this pullout is trying to attract the ladies attention so it has to be eyecatching, the more sales we get the more commission I get!

Include the following text somewhere on your page.

Fashion for all occasions
Best Makeup Picks
[your Headline from the "Papped" feature in Round 1]
You can add other text but the above three are compulsory.

Include a barcode, the price (FREE) and the title of the pullout - SHE

Image should be 550x650

BARCODE IMAGE (http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s30/Jonesi12/SHE/ean-barcode-creator_350.jpg)

Task 2

Perfume Advertisement

Every publication needs the simoleans generated from companies paying for advertising space.
This week OCEAN perfume want to reach out to readers and promote their product.

Perfume advertisement - full page advertisement for "OCEAN" perfume.
Waist or Hip shot, professional pose
Use the perfume image provided somewhere in your pic and use the text "OCEAN".
Your model can be interacting with the perfume bottle or have it as a stationary logo, up to you.
Choose your own background, font, colours etc..
Must fill the 550x650 page.
I've provided a .jpg (non transparent) a transparent .png and a transparent .psd to make it a bit easier for, see attachments at the bottom of this post.

Task 3

Makeover Madness!

We get lots of requests to surprise family members with a makeover, it's normally kids writing in about their mums, but we have had the odd Aunt and Grandma in too...
For example, in a previous issue of SHE we had a 14 yr old write in about her mum who was recovering from cancer and needed a pick me up and a little ego boot, so we got her in and gave her the works...manicures, pedicures, a new hairstyle and color and of course a new head to toe outfit and the best make up artists, she loved it!

For this task we will be making over your sim.

For this task you should use a minimum of three pics and set it out as a magazine article...if you need the space you can make it into a double spread or fit the three pics onto one page..up to you.
Pic 1 will be a "before" shot
Pic 2 an "In progress" shot
Pic 3 - the end result.

The "In Progress" shot can be of any aspect of a makeover..so having make up applied, hair cut, a face pack, hair in a towel or rollers..manicures etc..But just pick one.

A small amount of text should appear on your image, just stating who wrote in to ask for the surprise makeover and why your sim deserved to be pampered.
Your headline should be "Makeover Madness".

Mini Task (optional)

One image denoting your sims interests, as stated in your application.

Her interests are painting and stargazing but since i'd already done a stargazing shot I opted to make one all about painting.

Am still waiting for the 3rd judges comments, if I haven't heard by tonight I'll ask the EJ.

Great start, Tlaw!

Mini Task: Interests | Movies (http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/Psy10/MovieScene.jpg)

I love movies and couldn’t be more excited when my agent called me and said that Director Katie Simms wanted me in one of the roles of her upcoming film. An actress I’m not. :lol: I got a small part as one of the extras that Queen Looyix kills early on in the movie. Despite the fact that I have no speaking lines and I die within 30 minutes of the movie, I’m quite proud of myself.

Round 3 Results

Judges Comments

As only one judge gave comments, the second comment for each contestant is from me.
The scores & favourites are by the 3 judges (not me)

Your bold use of colors is nice to see but sometimes simplicity can go a long ways. On the other hand, your story-writing skills are up to par for this competition. Keep up the great work.

I really love the answers you've given for the first task...very convinving agony aunt! I probably would have used a more basic font as it's a little difficult to read but Merina's picture is lovely and I love the little extra you've added regarding contact info.
The bookcover was great, exactly what I had in mind..the background you chose fitted in with the sims perfectly, a little shadowing might have added a little something extra..
The extract is great!! I was wanting MORE!! You're very good at story writing! The Virgo picture was very nice, really liked the outfit and pose..text about Virgo would have been a plus but in all a great entry!

spunky, inventive and engrossing. For your second task i would have liked to see a more descriptive image of your story. Another put-off for me were the thumbnails... otherwise great work!

Really liked the way you layed out task 1 and the use of colour was great..answers where well formed and to the point and I loved how you gave each problem it's own title, very imaginative!
I like the book cover, the images of the sims are nicely done, not so keen on the background though and you can see the family name through your sims chest..
The story was nicely done, left me wanting to read more, you put it together very cleverly with a nice play on words!
The Leo picture is great, I love the face make up you put on her, she looks so cute!

A nice entry, the only comment i have for you is for your first task I would have liked to see Victoire and her Q/A's in a more professional/sleek setting.

Task 1 is very pretty, you sims looks down to earth and approachable, all the qualities an agony aunt should have. The layout could have been a little better but the answers where inventive!
I love your bookcover, it's one of my favourites, I really like the effects you've used and not being able to see Victoires face doesn't take away from the shot at all, really nicely done!
Your extract was really entertaining, maybe not the best story but definately left me wanting to read more!

All I have to say about your entry is that you exceeded my expectations. Darn you for not having in your mini-task, i bet it would have been awesome as well =)

Your task 1 was excellent! Layout was perfect and your answers where ingenious, I liked that Jessica showed some attitude!
The bookcover was really well done, the outfits and poses where great...however I would have liked to see some red lighting on your characters to blend them in with the background you chose.
The spin you took on your story was great! Very creative and I liked how you started in the present and then went back in time to explain how they met..Great work!

I was a bit puzzled by the schematics of your entry. For a first timer you're doing rather well. Keep up the good work =)

Your answers for task 1 where very good and made me giggle a bit, I like that you brought the sims into your answers! The layout was nice but a little bit of colour would have added something..
The book cover is great, I love the lighting you've used on the sim and the bed and how it blends with the gradient background..
The story was well thought out, I like the "tick" thing you had running though it, made it a bit more engrossing..
Really like your mini task...the ripples of water over the wood is a really nice effect..Great job!

Once again im baffled. Id rather the judges pinpoint what I was doing wrong, it would help so I could fix those things. My scores keep getting worse and worse so that means my entries keep going progressively downhill, right? I guess its back to work on the finale although I already know the outcome. Sorry to sound defeated. Congrats to the rest of you and its been a very good contest otherwise. I would love to be in a follow up because Im a sucker for punishment. ;)
PS. All you guys are awesome! I should have known what I was in for from the first round.

EDIT - Im almost finished above but I might need an extension to get the mini task in!

23rd Dec 2007, 1:06 PM
Firstly I'd like to thank you all for making my first contest (as a host) so enjoyable, I really had fun and hope you guys did too!
As you may have noticed there was no mention of prizes but expect a little something from me via PM as a thank you, I turned your mag covers into a magazine mesh for the game, the winners mag cover is the main mesh cover and the other three are recolours...as well as this I've added a little something extra in the file I'll send you all.


Only one can win the star though, so let's get on with the results!

Judges Comments

The layout of your magazine cover is very well done. Your model looks pretty and the clothing and hairstyle are nice.
I like the use of text and the wording you've used is excellent. Not too keen on the pink, orange and yellow colour scheme, something more coordinated would have been nice. All the task rules have been followed, good job!
The text in your Ocean pic is really nice, a bevel effect or a drop shadow would have really made it stand out more but it's very pretty and I like how you integrated it with the perfume bottle.
Your sim looks really pretty, I like how her makeup stands out and the pose is lovely, bit concerned about how yellow her skintone looked though...the dolphin is a nice idea but looks out of place on the picture, I think a "sims" dolphin would have looked better and more fitting.
Loved the Makeover task, this is definately your best task this round...very detailed! I love the note from her daughter and the before and after pictures are wicked! I like that you put alot of text into the article and the pics of her during the makeover are great, you obviously put alot of effort into this task and it shows! The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the yellow colouring but this didn't take away from the task over all, great work!
The mini task is really nice, again, alot of detail...the model posing was a nice touch and the palatte etc..the only thing I wasn't keen on was the font you used for "simcity art fair", was a bit difficult to read x

Really really like your magazine cover! I like the colours you've used in the background, Jersey looks really good, down to earth and approachable, just what was asked for, all te task rules have been covered and I love the little touches with the celebrity sims piccys, the pink text could have maybe done with an outer glow or outline just to make it stand out a bit more and the barcode maybe a little smaller but other than that I love it!
You've taken the artistic approach with your perfume ad and I really like it! The colour scheme is lovely. I think I would have liked the sim less transparent but still with the saturation taken down as it already is...the perfume bottle looks great and I love the text you've chosen, great job!
Your makeover task could have been laid out better, it looks a little "thrown together" some boarders around the first two pics would have looked better than them being cut off in mid air...however, I love the bags under Jersey's eyes on the before shotand the in progress shot is quite funny, she doesn't look too happy, lol..and of course she looks great at the end! I also like the font you used for the title..
At first glance your mini task looks a little plain but I loved the use of text that let us know she's a tv freak! Ingenious!

Your magazine cover is nice but doesn't jump out at me in anyway. Your sim looks pretty and I love her jumper but the text let the magazine cover down, it was just too plain. The colour scheme is nice but some effects on the text would have gone along way, you did follow task rules but a bit of imagination with the text and background would have given the cover some extra pizazz
I like the mermaid theme but didn't really get the background, she doesn't integrate with it at all, just looks pasted on..might of been nicer to actually see her in the sea instead of on it.
The way you used the perfume bottle is good and the text, although plain is a lovely font, your sim looks very pretty
You laid out the makeover page very well and I liked that the makeover and front cover linked as you used the "after look" for the mag cover, good idea! I wasn't too keen on the before outfit but then I suppose I'm not supposed to be, the "in progress" pic was lacking something and I'm not sure what she was doing pose wise and you forgot to say in pic who wrote in for your sim to request the makeover...but over all not a bad job and you followed the task rules nicely.
Although your mini task was quite plain I really liked it, I loved that the sim was interacting with the horse, it was just a really nice simple shot but worked well!

Jessica looks beautiful on your mag cover, very understated and subtle but exceedingly pretty! Really like the colour scheme you used..even though the background is plain it somehow looks right. The text was all worded very well..and all the task rules have been followed..the mag cover looks very classy, well done!
the background you used on your perfme ad is very pretty, I feel that your model could have benefited from a yellow photo filter on her skin to blend her in with her background a little more
the text you used is good and it works quite well on the whole.
Your makeover task is just great! I love the "in progress" piccy, it's really funny! You've laid the pages out realy well and the extra text is great, I like that you've told the story and given the article more depth. Jessica looks great after her makeover and the application form is a nice touch.
Your mini task was funny, her facial expression is classic! I'd rather the pic spoke for itself but it did need explaining a little and isn't an obvious pic for stating one's interests but good job all the same!
