Transformation contest - site reopening
Deadline : February Friday the 13th 2009

With the site reopening (see below), I considered the occasion as an opportunity to announce the 2008 edition of the Dragoniade Transformation Contest. Last year, the contest has been held in Deviant Art and went pretty smoothly. But with the site's new gallery opening, this year, it will be held here.

Once again, I will be the happy/surprised/unhappy (victim?) of a transformation. The transformed will be me, and what I get turned into, is up to you, except than this year, there is a twist.

The site features a lot of media: tv series, movies, games, books, comics, along with their characters. Some of those characters aren't human, have an inhuman / alternate form or have transformation ability. Also, some of the media include many trigger or context for a transformation. For this contest, you will have to transform me into one of those non-humans characters from a media, known or not, or apply a transformation used by one of those media/character. Need some examples?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

  • Media: Comics, TV series, Movies

  • Possible Trigger: Mutagen, Magic

  • Possible Transformation: Any creature using the mutagen or magic trigger, or a anthro crocodile (leatherhead), asian dragon (drako, Ninja Tribunal), rat (Splinter), rhino (Rocksteady), turtle (D'uh)


Dinosaucers:

  • Media: TV series

  • Possible Trigger: Dinovolving

  • Possible Transformation: Any dinosaurs based on the characters (i.e. Allo is an allosaur) or through a dinovolution.


Aladdin:

  • Media: TV Series, Movies

  • Possible Trigger: Genie

  • Possible Transformation: Anything by the genies, Shark, Naga (Aladdin got turned into those during the series), Parrot (Iago is a parrot), Tiger (Rajah is one), etc.


The Dragon Knight (the movie Flight of the Dragons was based on the first book)

  • Media: Books, Derived movie

  • Possible Trigger: Magic

  • Possible Transformation: Dragon, wolf, selkie.


Free Willy:

  • Media: Movies, TV Series

  • Trigger: None

  • Possible Transformation: Orca (Willy is an Orca)


Godzilla:

  • Media: Movie, TV Series, Comics, Game

  • Trigger: Nuclear Radiation, alien experiment

  • Possible Transformation: Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra, any monster appearing in the franchise.


He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

  • Media: TV Series, Movie, Comic

  • Trigger: Magic sword, magic

  • Possible Transformation: Muscle Inflation, Body alteration, Saber-tooth tiger (Cringer), Dragons (various dragon characters).


The Black Stallion

  • Media: Movie (2)

  • Trigger: None

  • Possible Transformation: Stallion



And so on. As you can see, the transformation concept isn't necessarily in the media in question, as long as the character isn't human (Free Willy, Black Stallion). If you can find a media featuring a non-human character or a trigger for a transformation and then you're set. It can be any media, from Lilo & Stitch's experiment to any Final Fantasy monster; from the Spider-man Comic to the Choose Your Own Adventures books. The choices are yours.

Simply submit your choice as described above, with the media name and trigger chosen.

This time, prize will involve money alongside site content:

  • 1st place: 35$, 4 DVD of various content from the site and a subscription.

  • 2nd place: 20$, 3 DVD of various content from the site and a subscription.

  • 3rd place: 10$, 2 DVD of various content from the site and a subscription.

  • 4th place: 2 DVD and a subscription

  • 5th place: 1 DVD and a subscription



The entries will be judged into 4 categories, each having their 5 slots.

  • Favorite: The transformations I like the most

  • Originality: The triggers or creature we don't see often, unexpected or with a twist

  • Quality: The best TF in quality and effort.

  • Stories and other media: Stories or non arts related entries go there.



Submission must respect the site policies. So nudity is acceptable as long it remain in the tasteful level. See the art policies for more details.

I'm targeting between mid-November and December, depending on the number of person joining the contest.
Sadly, I'm not getting as much feedback as last year. Probably it's the timing.

I am extending the contest... again.
Someone asked for it to be extended, since it was so close to the holiday.

And lets face it, it seem not to be attracting much people this time around. Come on! Lets support the community and those who help it. I personally can't imagine that an update every 2 weeks is considered 'barely' updating in the community! Help by showing some support to me and the site.

So, this said, and with me returning home tomorrow, I'm extending it to February Friday the 13th 2009. Hey, I'm giving an idea suggestion just by picking that date héhé.
