Well, I can understand that due to the low number of people participating, the art challenge will be cancelled, but too bad...

As for the skin challenge, maybe it would be fine to make prizes more attractive (choice for premium vehicules for example..), and/or assign longer delay for the comp ? (I feel like for skin challenge, 1 competition/month would be fine..)

Another way should be to remunerate all partipants with some GE ?

 

Anyway, I feel sad that those intersting competitions are stopped ...

Well, maybe you should promote it on Live WT, it is #11 and the 1st one I find out about (and participated). IMHO, number of  drawings on Live WT is increasing rapidly. I'm sure more would join competition if it was announced.  o7

Thanks for your support! love you all!  Perhaps we can make some model-building contest. As far as i know lots of players collect scale model. We need to find a way to prove that they are the true builder and may be use a vote system to find the winner.

Not sure if I'm necro'ing here (just saw that they are discontinuing the Art Contest); but here are some thoughts regarding why the Art Contest has low participation.

 

1) The competition simply isn't visible enough.  In the past, the announcement of the art contests were posted directly on the game launcher, or were quickly (or easily) accessible via general channels; now, one has to scroll all the way down to the Events & Contests panel before one even knows of this contest's existence (provided it doesn't already get buried under the other competitions).  I participated in the 10th Art Contest because I already knew of the contest's existence; given how it seems that many of the contestants are consecutive participants (lack of new participants), as well as a lack of general awareness in-game (despite winning first place in a previous contest, no one ever recognized me in-game aside from my closest friends), it is reasonable to conclude that part of the issue is simply that the news is not getting out there.  

 

2) The rewards are simply too low.  I'm sure this has been brought up before, but with the max grand prize only being set to 4k GE while anyone who wins a spot onto the biweekly Thunder Show easily earns 5k kind of shows where Gaijin's mouth really is.  I say easily not to insult the skill of the the players featured on Thunder Show, but rather to point out the simple difference in cost in sending what is at best a glorified fragmovie, versus drawing and making something from scratch.  If I remember correctly, Gajin used to host the Golden Snail Awards (for in-game machinima films), with a whopping 20k GE award for first place.  That's an incentive.

 

3) The average quality of the submissions (as well as the judges' selections) make the art contests nowadays a bit of a joke.   Most of the submissions are comprised of younger members who have very little (if not minimal) artistic expertise, or worse, simple trolls looking to make an easy buck.  A good piece of art requires not only time to create, but also time and effort to foster the skill needed to create said piece, and when it comes to the level of quality and artistic workmanship that Gaijin is probably looking for, most artists who would join (by this point aren't even looking for a financial reward) would probably be turned off by the lack of respect or recognition that this contest would give.  Chances are, they'll probably figure the incentives for submitting something to Thunder Show is simply so much better. 

 

 

tl;dr, interest for the competition is low because too few people know about it, and the rewards don't justify the work or effort.
