SPONSORS CHALLENGE (SEPTEMBER ’19)

Themes, winners and feedback.

During September, 2019, we’ve hosted the 7th edition of the Sponsors Challenge. On this event, some volunteer sponsors suggested a theme for the community. Here is a sum up of the themes and the winner each sponsor selected.


 Round 1 by Seris


The winner is BrockFNSamson, who put together a really cool shot with his mount. Catching the fireworks in the background really gave it some unique flair, yes yes. Congratulations!

Thanks for the amazing Candles pictures, everyone!! I love them ALL so very much but when forced to choose one, I went with Amalia. I adore the composition and the story the shot tells.

 Round 3 by Lilith


Thank you all for participating in my ‘Happiness’ challenge! All of them made me smile, I really enjoy seeing how everyone interprets the theme in their own unique way. My winner is Kyoshi – I loved the bright, fun colors, the distant perspective and off center positions of the characters, but we all know how important FC friendships are. So congratulations!

 Round 4 by Maya


Thank you to everyone who participated in my “Kindness” sponsor challenge !
I smile for each of your photos, and I’m happy to see how you interpreted and represented the kindness. More than the technique of photography is the intention that I wanted to emphasize in my theme. My winner is Talim : I love wanting to help this poor person, the way Lalalim comforts him with a hug and warms him with Ifrit.
Superb composition! Congratulations!

 Round 5 by Wenarian


First of all, thank you all so much for participating and I am absolutely blown away by how creative you got!
It was really hard to pick a winner, but since I have to: GhostDuck your screenshot and depiction touched me greatly! I absolutely LOVE how you have arranged the shot; the cropping, the warm colors and the mysterious feeling this picture provides makes me think “These two love each other deeply, and it’s their love and theirs alone. A feeling not for public display, but a sincere and subtle emotion conveyed in the smallest of gestures” Incredibly well done! 😀

 Round 6 by Escher


Firstly thank you everyone for participating!
I’d only expected a few pictures but you guys really opened the floodgates! With that, my winning pick goes to Tsu – it’s not easy coordinating and adjusting two characters to look like they’re dancing, and I like his hand on her waist. Good job, and congrats!

 Round 7 by Amalia


Edea – I didn’t know what spoke to me at first but then I saw the checkered floor and thought of a game of chess, with the knight going out of it’s way to go where it is needed most. I do not know if this was intended or not, but it made me think and smile and so it became my winning entry.
