DOTY 2019 Theme
« on: February 11, 2019, 08:53:57 PM »

Hi designers! Welcome to this year's DOTY. Here are some important things for you to know:

This year we have 4 lovely judges. We will be judging your entries on the following criteria:

1. Strict adherence to the theme and specifics given.  1-5 points
2. Creativity and originality. 1-5 points
3. Creative use of color and small details (such as the view looking outside from your roomís windows )  1-5 points
4. Crisp clear photos fit for a design magazine. You may not use filters or photoshopping of any kind other than slight sharpening and adding borders. 1-5 points
5. Imaginative use of room's space. 1--5 points
* Each judge will also pick their favorite photo out of all the entries each round and the designer will receive an extra 3 points

* For each round, you can receive up to 100 points (not counting favorite photo). These points will be cumulative until the final round. We sadly will be having eliminations in each round. I will only announce those who will be going on to the next round. If you would like your scores, please pm me.

* You are to show us 6 photos of your finished room and also 1 top view of the furnished floor plan.

* Unfortunately we cannot give additional time for finishing your entry.

* Please take your time completing your entries. Make sure you've included all the specifics given. Make sure that you've thrilled us with your designing talents. Be super critical of your photos. Strive for a perfect score by mastering all the 5 judging criteria. Have fun!!

rnbowfish Pam, you absolutely should! This year we are going to concentrate on the actual design aspects, not who can find the most obscure items. It will be challenging in that the true designers can come out and also fair to everyone but most of all: fun! We've also changed the amount of rounds from 8 & the final to 6 and the final. Also, have given everyone the entire weekend instead of just one of the day of the weekend. I think this DOTY is going to be wonderful!! greenie

Sounds fantastic!  Can't wait to get started.  I've been so bored lately, I don't really enjoy "playing" the game that much.

peeky I can't wait either! I always enjoy it so much. Both when I was able to join with real entries at BPS and then as a judge & host here. Better start looking through lots of online design sites to get acquainted with all the possible styles that might be given in the DOTY! Pam, that should keep you busy for awhile!

I'm confused, so was last years DOTY all about cc? I thought they were always about design? Or is this just a veiled insult at last years contestants? Not trying to be contentious, simply trying to clarify. Thanks, happy Simming!

I think what they meant was that with themes like a barber shop and pediatrics waiting room, cc was more of a necessity than with just different rooms in a house ;)
