Default MTS Official 2015 Calendar Contest: TS2
Official MTS 2015 Calendar Contest: The Sims 2
Use your creativity to showcase your sim as the Miss/Mr in a shot fitting for each month of the year. The picture should be "modeling-esque" shot with your single sim as the main focus representing the "feel" of a particular month. An adorable cupid for Love Day, a teacher for September, or a witch for Spooky Day, the possibilities are endless. 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.
2. Only 15 entrants per month. Please no place holders. Each spot is only filled once the picture 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. No photo editing.
6. When posting your picture, please make sure to include the month it belongs to.
7. Sims 2 only. For Sims 3 version, please go here and for Sims 4 version, please go here.
8. REMEMBER: This is a PG-13 Forum! Your entries may not include adult content, pornography, or other inappropriate content. Just because it is Miss/Mr does NOT mean it needs to be raunchy. Any entries that do not adhere to this will be removed. Leefish's July entry for the 2012 Calendar is a perfect example of how to be "sexy" without being raunchy or tasteless.

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

Q: I'm not sure if my entry is too sexy.
A: If you're questioning the raciness of your image, ask yourself why. Have someone else take a look it. We also have a live chat that you could pop in and ask other members as well.

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. If you want to post pictures like that, please see the chat thread linked above.

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.

Loonieloose, your picture is 1000 x 700. All entries must be 1000 by 750. Once you've got the correct dimensions, please edit your entry to swap the pictures out (a new post saying "hey I edited my post" is fine though so we know to check it) and we'll be able to add it to the table.

1. Can we sharpen the pictures?

2. Does it have to use Maxis lighting? (I don't have any lighting mods in my game, but I figure that someone else will probably wonder about this. I actually like the Maxis lighting, because it's not too dark, and because the lighting can change hue and intensity, depending on the type of object.)

3. In-game camera or screenshot or a picture-still from a video clip?

4. Can we use cheats? (I know the game comes with useful storytelling cheats, like the filmgrain cheat. If you watch the Special Events movies, then you'd notice a bit of that film grain, which often makes the game look like a movie.)


1. No. That is editing and, for TS2, editing is not permitted.
2. If you have a lighting mod that goes in game, then yes, that's fine. As long as it's altering the game, not editing after the fact, it's fine.
3. As long as you get your screenshot the right size, you can take it however you'd like. Go for best quality, whatever that would be.
4. I'm not familiar with this cheat but again, if it's an in-game thing, that should be fine. It should be obvious it's in game though and should someone want to check, they'd have to be able to replicate the effect in their game.

I hope that makes sense.

Well, its nice if you do; of course you can't use pay cc. It's also perfectly fine to ask another contestant WCIF in this thread if you see a bit of CC that you like the look of.

EXAMPLE: @klaartje - WCIF I find that poster in your shot ?
