2015 Art Contest Winners

atp 2015 art contest

2015 has come and gone, so thus ends our art contest. I hope everyone’s 2016 is even better than the previous year! 😀

Well, I guess we should get right to it, huh? If your a bit confused about the title, check out the art contest we started a while ago. 😉

Without further ado… first place goes to… Treesareredinautum!

2015 - Treesareredinautumn

Wow, this piece was just plain beautiful. The colors and shading really work well together and the detail in each island is amazing. The sunset draws you in and the depiction of Betty Jetty on the rooftop is great. I also took into consideration that this piece was still a work in progress.

Anyway, great job! I will contact you about your prize. 😉

*Ahem* Second place goes to… Maroon Cheetah!

2015 - Maroon Cheetah

Okay, this was just so cute! It’s very simplistic, but still well done. What can I say? I’m a sucker for some chibi art. :mrgreen: Plus, it showed a great celebration of the New Year!

Great job! I will talk to Silver Wolf and one of us will contact you about your prize.

Finally, third place goes to… Ultimate iPad Expert!

2015 - UiPE 1

This may be a graphic and not a drawing, but it’s still great art! The whole point of this site is Adventure Time and Poptropica, right? Well this picture is a great mash-up logo of the two! It’s high quality and overall really well put together.

Great job! I will talk to Silver Wolf and one of us will contact you about your prize.

Okay, so those were the winners, but there were a few other entries that we would like to feature (read the caption for a response on the drawing).

Thank you to everyone who entered! My apologizes to everyone who couldn’t participate or didn’t win. Everyone’s art was amazing! Also, thank you for all the birthday wishes! The ATP’s bday as well as my own. You guys really made the event special. ❤

Tweeting Winners and Tributes

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and we haven’t missed too much from the Poptropica community. Get ready for some sneak peeks/artSweepstakes winners, and tributes to two beloved people.


Island Hopper Sweepstakes Winners

The winners of the final week have been announced (getting a one-month Membership), along with the runner-up winners of the IHS, too (getting a six-month Membership)! :mrgreen: The grand prize winner has even been told, receiving a 30-minute video call with Jeff Kinney! All of them except the grand prize winner are here in a slideshow for you:

Grand PrizeAnd, as the big finale… Congrats to Comical Burger, who won the grand prize! Hopefully you’ll be able to have an awesome time with Jeff Kinney on the video call. 🙂

Sketches and Sneak Peeks Tweets

The Creators have explained their more-quiet-than-usual absence, explaining in a Tweet they they’ve been working on some big stuff for 2016:

Looks like this guy is important enough to be Tweeted about and have a Sneak Peek in the Daily Pops about him… Hmm, maybe he’s related to the jungle/airplane theme we’ve been seeing lately? Also, they’ve shown some sketches of Reality TV characters:

Personally, I’m tied between the Cool Tech Nerd and The Librarian. Maybe even The Goth Girl, although that one has been used maybe too frequently.

David Bowie and Alan Rickman

The Creators have made some tributes to David Bowie and Alan Rickman, with David Bowie being a famous musician and Alan Rickman being a famous actor (perhaps most notably for the Harry Potter series as Snape). Poptropica has even released a costume based off Bowie before, called the Zaggy Moondust for Lunar Colony Island. They also mentioned Alan Rickman in one of their Tweets, commemorating him with a link to the ATP’s Snape costume. You both will be missed. ❤

Adventure Time: DIY Contest

Hey guys, SD here! If you haven’t heard already, Cartoon Network is hosting a DIY Animation Contest for Adventure Time!

To enter the contest, you must create an account on DIY.org. You must be 17 years old or younger to enter, since it is a competition for kids. Once you have an account, you can create a short Adventure Time themed animation that is exactly 20 seconds long. You get bonus points for featuring the contest’s star: Marceline the Vampire Queen.

Remember that your animation is due on November 15th and that you can enter up to 3 times. Post your entry on your DIY Portfolio and tag it with #AnimationTime.

You can use any animation style you want (2D, 3D, stop-motion, etc.) and are welcome to use these images and audio clips.

The winning video clip will be shown on Cartoon Network on November 20th, during a special AT event! This special event may be the 4-part episode “Stakes“, however that is a few days before the 20th.

In other news, you may have noticed the ATP’s new theme! Halloween is over, so I knew I had to get rid of the spooky decorations, so I decided to just go ahead and make everything fresh and new! 😀

So what are you waiting for? Enter the DIY contest today and/or comment below and tell us what you think of the ATP’s new style. 😉

Happy Halloween! Photo Contest Winners

zomberryboogy

Happy Halloween Poptropicans! Did you go trick-or-treating? 🙂

Anyway, the winner’s of the Creators’ Photo Booth Contest are here!

Best Costume – Golden Typhoon

Golden Typhoon didn’t just make a great werewolf costume — she also posed it mid-transformation for a dramatic photo. Look how the other wolves are welcoming the newest member of their pack! Creepy!

Best Halloween Party – Speedy Knuckle

best_halloween_party

Judging by the entries we received in this category, Poptropicans know how to get down! Please invite us to all of your future parties. Our winner was Speedy Knuckle, whose composition and character poses made for a rockin’ good time.

Funniest Photo – Tall Kid

funniest_photo

Tons of hilarious entries in this category. In the end, we had to give the top spot to Tall Kid, who gave us three monsters (and two bats) chasing a poor Poptropican in a hot dog costume. We always knew that would get you in the end.

Most Creative Photo – Smart Glove

most_creative_photo

Every photo we got was creative. Smart Glove zoomed out to show Halloween from a perspective we hadn’t really seen before.

Scariest Photo – Maroon Bird

scariest_photo

The Jersey Devil found his way into a lot of the scariest photos, but it was Maroon Bird’s contribution to the Slenderman tale that earned top honors in this category.

To the winners and runner-ups: congrats! I’m sure that even if you didn’t win, your entry was spooktacular. 😉

So what did you guys dress up as this year? Share your Halloween stories below!

Lastly, if my calculations are correct #BacktotheFutureDay was this past Wednesday. Of course Poptropica had to celebrate, so they shared the image above. Woah… I guess the future… is now that past… that’s kinda weird. o_O So, um, why don’t we have hover-boards yet…? XD
