: You're below me on the list at the bottom of this board so I think you're still in the top 10 overall <:
Hey guys, sorry for the slow response on this! You should definitely have received a total 4k - but I think I know what's happened! Will follow it up today and get this sorted for you.

: Oceanic Artathon Final Results - Sponsored by SMASH! and Wacom
At the risk of repeating myself - holy crap you guys are amazing, seriously. I don't even know where to start with the sheer quantity of gorgeous art everyone has created! Congratulations to the winners but also a huge thank you and WOW to everyone else who entered. <3 There are suddenly a lot of very familiar-looking desktop wallpapers around the office, that's for sure!

: Hi! Was wondering when can we expect to receive the 2000 RP? :)
Hey Essen, thanks for chasing this! It should go out tomorrow at the latest - thanks for chasing it up!

: Just asking for future art events, was the file size I sent a bit big? I noticed now that the picture you've displayed here isn't the same resolution as the one I submitted which is fine!, I'm just curious :)
Hey Chikorita! I think when you click on the image in the boards post, the full-size version shooould appear - we've just got them smaller for visibility on the main post! But your image sizes have been fine, don't worry. :) Congrats on the top 10! :D

Majìk (OCE)
: Couple of questions 1. Does remix count? 2. What if we are under 18 3. Will we be provided with stems of the song
Hey Majik, unfortunately because of some of the legalities around this specific contest, we have to exclude anyone under 18. :( I'm seeing what I can find out about stems at the moment!
: Why do the contest rules say you have to be 18 or over but the master rules say 13 or over?
Hey dude! Our master rules are the minimum that apply to all our contests. However, this contest has some extra legalities and responsibilities associated with it (the rights to the final track, and the travel for the final prize) which unfortunately mean we have to exclude anyone under 18. :(
ACDLKH (OCE)
: can i enter even if im under 18 tho?
Hey dude! I definitely understand your frustration here, and we do try to keep our contests open for all ages. However, this contest has some extra legalities and responsibilities associated with it (the rights to the final track, and the travel for the final prize) which unfortunately mean we have to exclude anyone under 18. :(
: Is it okay to let a family member to enter on your behalf?
Hey Tomderbolt, feel free to recommend the contest to a family member but they'd be entering on their own behalf (and would receive the prize themselves). The rule below is key here! _'Your entry must be made by you, submitted by you, and made specifically for this contest: this is about YOU showcasing YOUR artistic talents specifically for this contest. You may elect to submit this entry as a group (E.G a band) or solo.'_

: I added a picture but its not shown here, did it not go through or are these not all the pictures? Because thats pretty disappointing if it didn't end up going through.
Hey Coen, I've just checked and your submission isn't displaying because it's a PSD file (so can't be opened by a browser for the gallery!) I'll send you an email - if you can send me a PNG or JPG version I'll get it fixed so it's displaying correctly.

: Becoming a writer, and working with riot.
Hey Darkshade! So I'm not in Narrative myself but will point you towards[ a post on the NA boards](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/AHwU8e1q-a-question-about-writing-lore-and-writing-for-video-games-in-general?comment=0001) where one of our narrative writers answered some similar questions a few months ago! The best advice I can give is that the best way to show that you're passionate and talented is to get out there and _do things_. Write, and share your work on platforms where folk can give you feedback! Be open to that feedback and use it as a tool to improve. Create worlds and stories and share them. Build a portfolio that showcases all the different styles and methods you can use to tell a story - because ultimately when a role opens up, at Riot or elsewhere - that's what you'll need to prove you've got what it takes. (This applies across almost anything, I think - not only writing! Being able to prove that you're not only passionate, but proactive enough to DO something with that passion, puts you above all those people who are super passionate but plan to start 'tomorrow'.) Regarding writing contests: I definitely hope to run some more in the near future! Watch this space~
: I may be mistake but when you say "Enter all three contests for a chance to win big " does that mean I have to enter all three to win? or does it just mean that having three entries in the competition statistically would increase an entrants chances of winning? {{sticker:sg-janna}}
Hey Ilovcheeze! So the way this works is that the final results are based on your cumulative total results from the three contests. So for example: * if you come in the top 10 for all three contests - you're looking pretty good! * if you come in the top 10 for one or two contests, and in the top 50 for the rest - still definitely possible, because others will be the same * if you only enter one of the three contests, but you get 1st place in that one - you're unlikely to end up with a top spot because you're competing against artists who entered in all three - but it's still technically possible, depending on how others have done.
: i didnt enter the past two rounds. So does that mean i can't win the wacom prizes?
Hey Wind, it's technically not impossible - but wouldn't be super likely! The winners for the grand prize will be selected based on their rankings across all three contests. You'd still be eligible for the top 10 prize for this specific round, which is 2000 RP, though!
: I'm not seeing any information on mediums, am I blind? Usually, it states if it's to be traditional, digital, photography, cosplays etc. Is it digital art only?
Hey dude! This one's an art contest but either traditional or digital media is great. Thanks for checking in - I'll tweak the post so it's clearer!

: quick Q - can the artwork be portrait oriented or does it have to be landscape?
: I think I've seen both the human Yordles one and the one with old Poppy and Amumu before.
Fixed them both, thanks dude! >:C
Chikorita (OCE)
: The original is 'oh nips gnar/teemo/ziggs" from google , they're the humanized yordles.
: Hi, I was looking through the entries for this contest (Which are all amazing!) but one of them has caused me to be a bit concerned. I recognized it from an artist I follow in America who drew that piece at least four years ago. I just wanted to give the people running this contest a heads up, in case it hadn't been brought to your attention yet. Please message me if you need any more details.
Hey, thanks for flagging this! If you can let me know what champion it features, I'll find it and clean it up. I do check entries for plagiarism (and blacklist the folk who try to cheat) but there's always a couple that slip through the first round of checks >:(

: I just realised that one of my layers in my picture isnt showing, I sent in a support ticket with my fixed image, Is there a way you can swap them? It really makes the picture look unfinished and i cant resubmit it myself because it just takes me to the link of my already done picture! Please get back to me! I am boarderline freaking out
Hey! If you can resubmit using another email address, I'll manually swap the entries out - that'll make sure it gets through to me before closing time. :)
Chikorita (OCE)
: Just to make sure 100% cause I had to start my entry late, it ends on Sunday at 11.59pm right.. So around 9-10pm for Perth? I've hardly slept idk why i need to ask this but here i am LOL (im sorry this is a dumb question)
My Googlefu (because I'm terrible at timezones) says 9:59PM Perth time. :D
: Hey! So ive submitted my picture but in the woobox link it looks like its cropped on the sides, im jsut wondering what size the picture should be just incase i need to resubmit it? Thanks {{champion:89}}
There aren't any particular size restrictions on the art - so any cropping might be a weird Woobox quirk. When I open your submission it's 1366x768 - does that sound right to you?
Yurito (OCE)
: Heyo, I just entered a piece for this gauntlet of the competition. Just wanted to check if it got through, 'cause last time my work wasn't displayed on the voting page. Thanks!
Hey Yurito! We've got your entry safe and sound. :)
Diagram (OCE)
: Hey, just wondering if we could get a confirmation of whether we should continue waiting tonight or not? These updates are pretty vague in specifying whether we should wait it out to see if we can play tonight, or just log off and wait for tomorrow. Please reply and thanks for taking the time to answer some questions Mindstar, keep it up!
Hey Diagram, unfortunately you shouldn't wait it out for tonight - the engineers etc. are continuing to investigate and make sure the issue is properly fixed, so there won't be a restart. Sorry about this - we know it sucks. :(

K Q (OCE)
: Can we paint yordles in skins? Even if the skin is actually not existed? Like can we make up skin for the yordles just to fit the theme/mood of the painting?
Hey! Skins or alternate designs are fine, as long as they're ultimately recognisable as that character. :D
: For this round, do the yordles have to be chilling and sipping tea, or it can be a full on battle brawl?
Yordles are versatile little buddies! They could be doing aaaaaaaanything...within the boundaries of that M rating. ;)
: Hi Can u tell me what file type to send in in? I am sending it from procreate and I didn't know what the file type meant so it may be my fault. If you give me a link or something I can resubmit. I will do anything, I spent way too much time on this to miss out. THANKS
Hey, so entries SHOULD be an image file type (like PNG, JPG, JPEG, etc.) rather than a document type like PDF. That said, the system shouldn't have accepted a PDF if it wasn't going to display for voting - so that's still a mess-up on our side and I'm super sorry! All that said - I've fixed your entry up manually so it's now displaying properly in the voting gallery. I've also sent you a little apology gift - sorry this was a mess! :(
: HI Achenar, I submitted my artwork under the username "ExterminatorFuzi" which was a picture about kayn killing sion. I double checked I submitted it, and the page even came up which said that my work had been submitted. I can't find it anywhere on the voting boards. Why is this? Can you help me understand the problem please? I spent 5-6 hours drawing this so I'm pretty gutted.
Hey guys, I HAVE found Exterminator's entry in the system - however it's not displaying in the gallery as it's a PDF, not an image file. I'm a little confused as to why a PDF would be accepted in this scenario, since it was specifically an image contest, and I'm trying to figure out how to fix it - watch this space. I'm so sorry this has happened!

Hey dude! I assume you mean for round one - but I don't have any entry for you in the system, assuming you submitted with this summoner name. D:
Six (OCE)
: I was unable to enter for the first round but am considering have a go at the remaining rounds. Does this make me ineligible for the competition?
Hey Six! You're not ineligible for the competition but the final top 10 will be determined by the aggregate highest-voted across all three. So for example if you smash round 2 and 3 out of the park, you could definitely still be up there - but your 'score' to reach that final top 10 will be competing with artists who entered all three rounds. Hope this makes sense - let me know if not! I'd definitely love to see your work. :D
K Q (OCE)
: Wait, it appears that you can vote as many paintings as you want but can only vote each one once is that correct? Cause on my screen it seems like I vote for so many already and each of them has like a green tick at the bottom corner.
I've just tested, and it looks like you're absolutely correct! I'd misunderstood how it worked - you can only vote for each entry once, but can place multiple votes overall. Which is how I originally wanted it to work and couldn't figure out...so great! ;) **You can vote for multiple entries.**
Zookie (OCE)
: how many can I vote for or is it only one?
Just the one, unfortunately - which makes it SO HARD D: Why are you guys all so cool?

: Hi! I submitted my artwork but somehow it got rotated so it's landscape instead of portrait. :/ is there a way to update the entry with the correct orientation?
Hey Essen! I've just fixed it on our side so should display correctly in portrait orientation for voting etc. :D

Hey Kokoro, if you've got another email address you can submit with I'll allow it just this once - we'll take the most recent copy. :D But the intent for this contest is to put your best foot forward, so make sure to be super careful in future!
