Merry Merloc? Hmmm... Blizzard has announced the inaugural Holiday Greeting Card contest based on Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft. Supplied with a template, fans are free to let their inner artist fly. Grab the particulars below:
Every holiday season, Blizzard Entertainment creates a special holiday card to spread some seasonal cheer to little murlocs, zerglings, and imps everywhere. This year, we're inviting you to catch the spirit by creating a Blizzard-ly holiday card of your own featuring the Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo series. We'll provide the template -- all you need to do is add your personal touch.
To participate in our inaugural Holiday Card Contest, simply submit your entries here by 12 p.m. Pacific Time on December 7, 2009. Three lucky winners will win a prize package including a Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse, Razer Lycosa gaming keyboard, Razer Sphex gaming grade desktop skin, and Razer Carcharias professional gaming headset, along with this year's official Blizzard Entertainment holiday card signed by the artist, Samwise Didier. Check out the official rules for more information.
In order to increase your chances of being picked as one of the winners, please keep the following items in mind:
- Holiday cards must be based on the Diablo, StarCraft, or Warcraft universes.
- Judging criteria will be based on originality, design, and humor/sentiment.
- Don't compress your submission too much. Although the file you submit must be less than 5MB, beware of sacrificing quality by over-compressing it.
Be sure to check back after the contest is over, as we'll be making the winning entries available for use as your very own holiday cards this season.
