It's the DOTY contest time again. That's Designer of the Year for those who don't already know. Last year we had so much fun with our "movie" theme. We think you'll really enjoy this year's theme.  The contest consists of 8 rounds and then the final. Each round will begin on Tuesday @12 am est. & end 5 days later on Saturday 11:59 PM est. We will be unable to extend any round so you must make sure to post your entry by the given deadline. Anyone who misses a round will unfortunately have to be eliminated. Each round, except round one will have member eliminations. Each entry will be judged by our staff judges on 5 separate categories. All scores will be kept private. Round 1 will begin on Tuesday April 10th @ 12:00am. Everyone other than staff/ Minena~last year's winner may sign up but they may enter JFF entries. No matter what your experience with sims, you are encouraged to sign up. Even those who are fairly new should join even if it's just for fun. You will gain so much experience. So if you think that you can commit to 2 months of creative challenging fun, please leave your name in this thread & I will add you to the list.

DOTY 2018 / What is the DOTY?
« Last post by Betsy4Arts on March 12, 2018, 03:36:57 PM »
aquestionmark For those of you who aren't really sure what the DOTY 2018 is, I will give you some info.

* The DOTY stands for "Designer of the Year". It is a contest that lasts for 2 months. It will have 9 rounds, each round will last 5 days {Tuesdays [12am USA EST]~Saturdays [11:59pm]}. There will be a countdown clock for each round so you'll know how much time you have until you must submit your entry. There can be absolutely no extra time allowed as we are on a tight schedule so no extensions can be given. So if you sign up, you have given us a promise that you'll stick with it till eliminated or win. On Tuesdays, you will be given a theme, possibly a floor plan & some specifics that must be included in your entry. You may use cc, your own recolors/meshes or just game content but cc will definitely help you realize what you envision. After the round is finished, you may remove your entry and all it's cc from your game if you like as you will not be needing it again. Each Round will start anew .You will be allowed 6 in-game pictures for your entry as well as a top view pic if there was a floor plan given but no collages or pictures in pictures. Also no photoshopping unless specifically instructed by your host. You may include a border. Once you post your entry, you may not modify it so make sure before you post that all specifics are met and that you haven't forgotten anything.


* There will be judges{members of the staff} who will decide the points given {per a judging criteria already understood} to each participant's entry on Sunday & Monday. We will name who will be going on to the next round on Tuesdays when we announce the next round. Actual points will not be publicly posted but please PM me if you wish to know your scores. No one will be eliminated after the 1st round so you can get a feel for what the judges are looking for, but we will be eliminating in all later rounds. Your points will be cumulative until round 9, then the finalists will start at 0 again. Who ever wins round 9 will be DOTY 2018!

There will be 8 rounds and then a final. Each round will have 5 categories in which their entry is scored. Each category will be worth 1-5 points each. So each perfect score round is worth 25 points per judge{excluding fav picture}.
1. Strictly following the given theme
2. Including all specifics given by host
3.Creativity & originality
4. Use of camera shots & angles 
5. Use of given space
* Judge's favorite photo~2 extra points


* Those who are eliminated may still post entries but they will be JFF {just for fun} and will not be scored. Staff may also enter any rounds that they choose but will be JFF as well.

 minibud Hope that I've answered your questions. Always feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns during the DOTY. Hope that you have fun!! Good Luck!
