I am working on a few ideas for contests to host during the course of the year.

Since we need all our members to participate, and since you are the ones who must have the fun and joy in entering, I thought to find out from you if you would like to suggest a theme for a contest.

Feel free to share any idea you might have on this here.

Two ideas came into my mind.

1) "Copy your favourite designer"
Many designers around the community have a certain style which you can always recognise. The participants could choose their favourite designer and try to copy their style as good as possible. Would be fun to guess who the original designer might be.

2) Something for Sims 4 players: "Many rooms, one house."
Maybe with a lottery or by choosing everyone gets a room to design/build. Either we make kind of a chain, and participant 1 sends it to participant 2 and he/she adds the next room, or everyone sends their room to the host and she creates a house with the different rooms. Prettiest room wins. Maybe with a theme.

of course it would better when all Sims players can participate in a competition (2, 3, 4)

Yes, we do need to include all players, but I really like the idea of "many rooms, one house". We could then put it up for download. That would be such fun. A really unique idea, I love it. claphands1

Consider an idea (whatever that might be) from TWO different perspectives. Here are some ideas! 

Consider photographs of the same lot - one in the daytime and then one a nightime.

Consider photographs on the same bedroom - one for a female child, and then one or a male child

Consider photographs on a lot (exterior only) - one is a log cabin in the woods, and then one in Spain or some other place

Consider photographs on a dorm bedroom - one is for a sedate geek student - and then one is for a student who just wants to party, party, party.

Consider photographs a room (livingroom or kitchen) - one style of furniture for an older couple, and then one for a single mom with four kids.

Okay, I can go on and on with these example.  The point is the contest would require TWO opposing pictures from whichever Sims game you play.

omg I'm with you Sam ROFL

I started one many years ago at BPS (I think) where from one object, like a picture or a piece of furniture, you had to create a room around the said object. Probably not very imaginative, but another idea.

I like Poppy's 'Copy Cat' idea too and Ava's room one, although we need to think of a way we can do it!

I loved the 10th Kingdom! Unusual but interesting idea. Challenge for my Gimp skills. :-)

Lorry, I think this contest has been recycled shortly before BPS closed. They had to create several rooms with different styles around one piece of furniture as a constant.
