    Hello, for narrative can we mesh both story elements and artwork? Like, mix text-based stuff with story illustrations and even perhaps comic panels?

    Sounds Design arguably covers this but it's something we can think about for the future.Noth said:

    WAT
    I saw them mention this on their Twitter... These countries have laws and rules concerning contests in general that are too hard for them to work around.

    Hi,
    So if I live in Quebec I can't participate? That's right?
    Can we have more details about this, I'm confused ...
  • toonietuesdays
    Someone already asked a question I was looking to ask (Altering the geometry of the character a lot) but perhaps I can hone in on my question: Is the idea of doing an Immortan Joe version of Urgot going to break any rules? Can it be viewed as just a reskin..well..that and remodeling too..? Or is it breaking the rule about using other people's concepts?

    Thanks!

    As BigSisNatien points out, the list of countries that are or aren't allowed to participate comes down to really boring laws concerning throwing contests, giving prizes, and international business. I can't offer a ton of insight but at a high level:

    - Brazil: complicated b/c Riot also does business there, basically would mean we have to do TWO contests
    - Greece/Italy: weird bonding requirements for even holding a contest
    - Quebec: dual language laws strike again

    The other countries fall on export control lists which means nobody is really allowed to do business with them. Neither us nor Riot have anything specific against these countries but there isn't much we can do given the legal overhead mentioned.

    But 3 years ago, with the same rule in place, a quebec resident end up winning third position and received his prize.

    Nope, this is false. The rules are different for 2017 hence why a completely new document was written and underwent legal review, the 2014 rules are available here

    May i know the jury name please. 
  • TouijriHamza
    I have never participated in any competition , so i'm curious about this one , i mostly am able to do most of the categories , but i specially am better at 3D character modeling , animation and concept art ! although i'm curious about the character art ! like if i wanna make a champion in 3D , can i give the character a bit of my own art style , like a more pronounced anatomie , same cloths but with some tweaks , or also same hairstyle but with different changes in the hairdue , the meshes etc ? or am i supposed to completely stick to riot in game art style and just change the skin , or am i free to really add an original touch to the champion also am i reduced to some polycounts or is it free to be high resolution in details etc ? Thank you again for the help if anyone can answere these questions !

    My maternal family is Italian and the paternal is Brazilian... and currently I am a Brazilian resident and I will not be able to participate... very bad. But the Brazilian Mike Azevedo and all the Brazilian players I know who play lol, will be representing us. I didn't even pay attention to the awards, but for recognition of an agency I admire, or even for the love of design, I studied, read about the character I thought of doing the illustration and proof is that this first image of the post It is from another user who has paid more attention than me on the countries... I would participate even if it was free, but it's part of politics and life.
    Thank you very much and good luck to the deserved winner.

    Hi there, 

    I would like to register to the contest. How do I? I've already created an account at polycount but I can't find any link to the contest registration. I can not access the link to the submission download tool either (in the "Riot Creative Contest Rules" pdf). 

    Thank you. 

    Regards,
