Default MTS Official 2016 Calendar Contest: TS4
Official MTS 2016 Calendar Contest: The Sims 4
Use your creativity to showcase your sims in a shot fitting for each month of the year. The picture should be a scene with sims in it representing the "feel" of a particular month. Have the family gathered for Christmas dinner? Beach party in June? Romantic dinner for two in February? We'd love to see what everyone can come up with for this year's calendar. Please use northern hemisphere seasons.Season expansion pack and use of seasons holidays (Love Day, Spooky Day, etc) not required.

Rules
1. 1 picture per entry. You may only enter a month one time but may enter 2 separate months. (If you enter twice, you need to submit two different posts)
2. Only 15 entrants per month. Please no place holders. Each spot is only filled once the picture, that meets all the rules, has been submitted.
3. CC is allowed. However, please make sure to follow MTS rules for CC; no pay content.
4. Pictures must be 1000 (width) x 750 (height).

5. Minor photoeditting is permitted to create weather effects since TS4 does not have anything to simulate weather at this time. Your picture must still look like a game picture though so blurring, drawing onjects/accessories/etc in, adding borders, etc is not permitted. For further details, please see the info button at the bottom of the rules list.
6. When posting your picture, please make sure to include the month it belongs to.
7. Sims 4 only. For Sims 2 version, please go here and for Sims 3, please go here.
8. REMEMBER: This is a PG-13 Forum! Your entries may not include adult content, pornography, or other inappropriate content.



How to Enter
1. Pick a month and take a picture to represent that month.
2. Upload the picture to any image host - Tinypic, Photobucket, Flickr, ModYourPanties, etc
3. Start a new post on this thread - click Go Advanced, and you can click the little "Insert Image" icon in the toolbar, or just copy-paste the image location into some [img] tags. Make sure to include which month your picture is for.
4. Submit your post - doing so will submit your entry.
5. If you want to do two entries, you need two separate posts.

Duration/Time Period
The contest begins November 1st, as soon as this is posted. Contestants will have until November 30th to post pictures. However, if a month fills up before that date, that month will be closed for new entries and judging.

Contestants
15 per month maximum

Judging and Scoring
Judging will be done by a panel MTS Staff and these are the things that the panel will be looking out for when entries are judged.
  • Theme - Does your picture represent the month you chose?
  • Creativity - Originality of idea
  • Style - Use of space, props, is it pretty?
  • Rules - CC adherence, no editing, inclusion of month

Prizes
A sticker for both winners AND participants, like these.
A calendar will be made for download with each winning month.
And, of course, the blue ribbons for each month’s winner.

Questions
Q: I already entered 2 separate months for TS4. Can I compete in the TS2/TS3 calendar as well?
A: Yes, you may. You're more than welcome to submit for all the contests, giving you 6 chances to win!

The picture you post will be your final shot - make it good. Posting a random picture of a christmas tree, easter bunny, yourself, etc to reserve a spot is not allowed and it will be deleted.

Once your post has been added to the table, it may not be changed. Do not change the picture, you may not delete it and enter a new month instead, etc. If you choose to delete your entry, you are removing yourself from the contest and no further entries will be permitted from you.

If anyone is notified that they have used pay content, their entries will be disqualified. The spots they had will NOT be held.

My entry for December...
Christmas Morning

Sims, like life, is very unpredictable. One minute you're eating four day old pizza, and then the repo-man steals your only sofa and you're in tears. ...then the food poison kicks in.

@Mettesims - your entry is 1000x652. It should be 1000x750. I wouldn't recommend stretching it so hopefully you have an uncropped version to work from. Once you have the correct dimensions, edit your post to replace the image, and then you can @ me and I'll add you to the table.

This probably is a stupid question but addons, game packs and stuff packs don't count as pay content, right? :P

@fmath5 and @BeatlesBoy thank you for your entries. They've been added to the table.

@truffelschaf you are absolutely correct. Official content: expansions, stuff packs, game packs, etc are not considered pay content.

Default April
This is my entry for the month of April, the Harper family spending their easter weekend in the park. The themes I wanted to include in
this shot were easter, flowers, the first warm days and spring love. It's my first time entering and I hope I did everything right. The image seems
to have dropped in quality from what I see ingame, sorry about that. I don't think I can fix it. I'll enter a second month as well, just not sure which one.



All objects in this picture are by ea and the Harpers are my legacy family. No editing

Edit: I am unsure of what to do, I have not edited my original screenshot other than cropping it. I have made another post about this, but it appears to not have been seen.

Default September
This is my entry for the month of September. Here where I live it's the month of the harvest for fruits and root vegetables (sadly there is no harvesting animation
anymore, they just collect the crops with a swoosh of their hand) and I also wanted to include the outdoors, bonfires, the last warm days and autumn rain
in the picture, I hope I achieved that. This entry includes weather editing (the rain) and an orange color layer. It was also shot in the early hours of the morning.



PS: The cowplant is supposed to represent actual cows which at this time of the year are brought down from their summer meadows in the alps.
Why u no have farm animals, sims? This was lots of fun, I even plan on making it a monthly challenge for next year. And you guyses pictures are amazing!

Lots of mentions here because I had lots to add to the table, and they were all the right size too!

@Cherpi @Chax @truffleschaf @Glouryian @Zagy and @AyeeltzZoe - your entries have been added to the table.

@Mai2008 - your entry looks to have been photoshopped beyond the weather effects editing we've permitted. Please replace your current image with one that has not been edited other than the specific effects mentioned.

I'm so sorry for my username being such an issue. I'll contact a mod or admin (if I find one) and ask if they can change it.
I posted a fully edited version of the september picture here, I hope that's alright? If not I'll take it down. I... Kinda liked the base and just went mad in photoshop. Sorry

It's weird. Your username is only a problem when I try to ping you. It'd added to the table just fine though *checks again to be sure* yep, looks right though. I wouldn't worry about it though. The @ pinging does weird stuff. No big!

Haha! Oh! That's not an issue with your username, that's just me with chocolate truffles on the brain. Whoops! It should be fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.

Default Entry for September
Here's my entry for the month of September. I used photoshop to color a few of the trees/bushes to Fall colors and dull the grass a little bit. It seemed too green to represent September to me. I hope that's within the rules?
