It's time to vote for your favourite entries again! :smile: 

Important note: Voting for yourself is NOT allowed. Doing so will result in disqualification. Please double check your votes before submitting them, to avoid mistakes, because they can't be changed afterwards.

Current theme: Mighty Myths
Description: Customise any pet to resemble a mythological/mythical creature. (Here's a (probably incomplete) list with creatures, in case you need some inspiration.)
Entering period: Monday, August 15 - Sunday, August 28
Voting period: Monday, August 29 - Sunday, September 11

Be sure to check out the links to the animated entries, although with Flash gone (and pre-HTML5 conversion) you'll only be able to see the still image. (Still worth checking out, as it'll be bigger than the one in the thread, so you'll be able to see more details on it.)

Voting is now officially closed! And the winners are...

"In the depths of Kiko Lake lies a shape-shifting spirit known for luring in unsuspecting travelers to a watery grave. With hooves of a Uni and the tail of a Flotsam, this creature is something new entirely. One night, a brave Lake local waited for the beast to appear and when it did, he hastily secured a saddle and urged it back into the water to explore underwater cities. No one else has been able to capture and tame another beast like this, as it is far too dangerous. Be warned: do not follow the creature."

So sorry to hear that! We'd never get enough entries if people could only use pets/items they owned, and we want everyone to be able to enter. We did try to clarify this in the rules, but you're not the only to have assumed you had to use your own pet. Let me know if there's any way we could make that more clear, because I definitely don't want people to spend NP (or worse, NC) to morph their pets and buy items just to enter the Runway! 😬

Yeah its NBD but to me the way it is now where you dont have to OWN any of it or morph or anything....kinda like reading fiction. I think it would be WAY more fun and challenging if your using all these items you have spent real money on and like poured your own personality in within said guidelines. (I prefer non fiction.) Honestly im in the minority im sure.

Good analogy, and while I love both fiction and non-fiction, this contest is definitely meant to be fiction. It's meant as a fun little contest that anyone can enter, and where people can fully unleash their creativity, without being limited by what they can afford on Neopets. This levels the playing field, so new players have just as much of a chance of winning as users with access to tons op NP (and NC).

(I think what you're describing is more like the customisation contest on Neopets itself, except for the fact that that one doesn't have a theme.)

In addition to levelling the playing field, I doubt we'd get enough entries to actually have a contest. Considering the average amount of entries per round is about six right now (when entering is quite easy), having to put a lot more time and effort into an entry (hunting down items, spending NP/NC, painting or morphing their pets), would probably put people off. Also, the entering period might have to be extended (even further), and I'd wager that not many people would be willing/able to go through all of this every round. (If they'd be willing to spend NP/NC, and paint/morph their own pets in the first place, that is.)

I know I personally never would've bothered entering (before I ran the contest) if that was how it had been set up. When it comes to playing Neopets, I'm a "doing my dailies and maybe some plots/events" kinda player. (And even my dailies have dwindled down to collecting interest & Trudy's these days. 🙃) I can't even remember when I last changed the looks of my own pets; the customisation function on Neo has always been suuuuuper slow for me, so it's always felt like a chore, whereas DTI feels like a fun tool to play around with. (I actually ended up getting a few pets based on entries I sent in, after playing around with all the options for these pets on DTI, and then falling in love with them.)

I can assure you that people pour their personalities in their entries though. Having received so many of them by people who regularly enter, I can often tell who sent in which entry, without checking their username. People really have very distinct styles and interests, which are reflected in their entries. :smile:

But yeah, all that to say, if you prefer a 'non-fiction' kind of contest, The Runway might not be the kind of contest for you. :wink: (Unless everybody is going to disagree with me now, in which case I'd happily try a round (or more) for which everybody would have to use their own pets/items.)

Yay! I really appreciate those who voted for me, thanks so much for giving me silver/second place! ❤️ I`ve really been down lately and haven`t felt inspired to do Runway entries (I have still entered, just haven`t performed well) so this was a great confidence boost for me! Thank you very much, congratulations to the other winners and good luck to all in the next round!
