Here's something I came up with, based loosely on Who's that Pokemon?
Name of Event: Where's that Pokemon?
Type of Event: Art Showcase/Guessing Game
Description: Where's that Pokemon is an art showcase where artists can draw any Pokemon they want and any number of Pokemon they want as part of a landscape or environment that actually exists in the real world somewhere. Artists are required to draw each entry in such a way that the community has to use the clues in the environment to determine where the Pokemon is. Examples include food items, clothing, foreign languages, and architecture.
The showcase will select three winners, based on the three entries with the highest number of votes. Prizes will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. The votes will rest on which entries people like the most. This event will not only offer something different to LV, allowing for some artistic freedom, but the idea is to make Pokemon seem just a little more real to us fans and bring some smiles.
There is also a prize given to the person who correctly guesses the location of each picture more times than anybody else.
This month-long event will start with the first two weeks where artists can prepare and submit their entries to the showcase thread. Once the first two weeks are over, all entries will be counted and the submission period will end. When the third week starts, the voting session will begin, and after the fourth week ends, all the votes will be counted, along with any attempts to guess the location of each entry.
During the last few days of the month before it ends, the results will be shown, beginning with the exact location of the Pokemon in each entry. First, the person who correctly guessed the most locations will be announced and given the Master Geographer award, along with the prize. Then the showcase winners will be announced, and prizes will be given to the top three artists.
1: You can either submit a picture or a vote but you can't do both.
2: If you submit a picture, it can neither show the name of the country or the name of its location anywhere on the picture, even as part of the scenery itself. You can use creativity to blur, obscure, or otherwise make the name unreadable if necessary. (ex. drawing a person standing in front of a sign which would show the name) Don't try and cheat by writing the name itself in foreign letters as all text will be examined.
3: The picture can display landmarks and tourist attractions as long as they do not make the location obvious. (Ex. Avoid drawing the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, or Big Ben, as they are dead giveaways for the location and make it too easy for people to guess)
4: The picture cannot display any national flags, no matter what nation they represent. Nor can it display any items with pictures of national flags on them. (ex. A coffee cup with the Union Jack painted on it, the British flag.)
5: You can only submit one picture or vote. However, you can attempt a guess at the location for as many entries as you want, just remember to put them all in one post.
6: In addition to drawing Pokemon, you can also draw human characters, even from the Pokemon universe. But you must have a Pokemon clearly shown somewhere on the picture.
7: The points for guessing locations will be determined as follows -- 1 point for correctly guessing the nation & 3 points for correctly guessing both the nation and the exact area the picture shows. (Remember, the picture has to feature an actual location. If you can find it on Google Maps, it counts as an actual location)
8: If you submit a picture, never give out the name of either the nation or the area to anyone else. If you're caught doing that, you will be disqualified. When you submit your picture, send me a PM containing both names. I will number each submission and keep track of them.
I will help organize this event if LV agrees to host this event and assist me with putting the prizes together. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
