You must be joking. There are no winners in this category as there were no digital arts participating in the contest.
Disappointing and patronising response

I have come to expect better and more mature of you Sparkle but it seems I was wrong... :(

How can we be joking when
It was not clear what a digital arts is by compettition rules...
Just say "Digital art"... lol
To some ppl all entries were a digital art of some kind... Especially the ones where screenshot is put into a letter/frame rather than just written over...

I was under the assumption that if anyone made a POSTCARD, even if it contained a screenshot, that it would be counted as such a "digital art" since it required more effort than simply taking a picture and adding text on top

You even said so yourself that it MUST contain screenshot of character:
Your task is to create an ArcheRage themed Greeting Card.

It can be one of two types:
  1. Screenshot or several screenshots turned into the Greeting Card.
  2. A digital art turned into the Greeting Card.

Requirements:
  • Your character should be present on it (for screenshots type).
  • One player can create no more than one of each type.
  • Your Greeting Card should include words "ArcheRage" on it and be Christmas/New Year + ArcheRage themed.
  • Graphic editors are allowed.
So that would mean that ALL submissions CONTAINING a screenshot counted ONLY FOR SCREENSHOT compettition???

All the things ppl made here was "digital art" in some form or the other
In which case it APPEARED that the compettions were:

BEST SCREENSHOT
and
BEST DESIGNED POSTCARD "Digital Art"

but instead you saying that nobody submitted a digital art...
So I guess by digital art you were looking for
an illustration or drawing...

But then it would not have screenshot and therefore fail requirements...

but you know what I don't care I didn't even enter this compettition...
And yet you patronise response and say we must be joking...

Whatever
'hair

I agree with @xkf2, @yuukio and @Aviendha: Digital art is not just illustrations, if what you asked for was digital paintings it should have been written more specifically.

Also, I think it would be very useful to tell us which criteria is used to choose the winners. Is the winner chosen for having a good finish? for the time spent? for the effort shown? for the message it sends? And the jury is only one person or several?
These types of contests should have clearer bases, so everyone is properly rewarded, it is more fair and fun.

Take this as a suggestion to improve these events. ❤

All cards participated in the event used screenshots as a base.​
Here are the examples of our digital art events: [LINK] [LINK] [LINK]
As you can see, such works were not provided in this event by the participants, so no was was rewarded, however, as there were many screenshots works, 2 extra places were awarded.​
But, though I thought players were indeed joking asking why there are no winners in the digital arts category, it appeared to be that I was wrong and digital arts is indeed a confusing task for the players.​
So, to avoid the further confusions and complaints, digital arts will no longer be the part of the forum events.​
