Art Contest Deadline Extension

We’ve decided to extended the deadline of the art contest until Friday, June 19th, so for those of you who missed our first deadline be sure to keep scribbling away on those entires to meet this new one.

We’ve appended the original announcement here for your convenience.

Originally posted April 8th, 2015

To celebrate the premiere of season 5, Bronystate is pleased to announce an art contest! The Brony community is extremely talented and we want to help show off that talent! The theme would be, quite fittingly the premiere itself! Perhaps our loved coloured equines celebrating their return to the screen or preparing for the stage, there’s tons of possible scenarios!

The top 3 submissions will be featured on the website. The winner will receive a $20 gift card to a game store of their choosing as well as be featured in our weekly newsletter. To enter just send an imgur link of your submission to [email protected] before the 15th of May 2015.

The Rules are as follows:

  1. The submission must be your own work.
  2. All submissions must be safe for work, so no adult content.
  3. The submission must be sent as a link.

If you have any questions please post here or contact Vuxul through PM on the IRC.

Happy drawing!

We’re pleased to make a brief announcement to all of our viewers and visitors that the banners for all of the mane 6 theatre rooms have been updated! We hope you’ll enjoy seeing your favorite pony and their corresponding cutie mark as a welcome into your theatre of choice from now on! – Wrek

Art contest results are in! New spotlight page.

Now that Halloween is over, the Nightmare Night Art Contest has closed, and the entries have been judged!

We received several entries, but only three artists could come out on top, and in order from first place to third place, they were RaveBrony, Panda, and Reikim. Be sure to congratulate them whenever you see them!

But that’s not enough… you want to actually see the art submitted, don’t you? :3 Go ahead and click the “Spotlight” page up in the menu up there! Go on! Click it!

(To artists who made it in the top three, BaconMane will contact you for the prizes.)

Nightmare Night Art Contest!

Time to get festive, artists, because Bronystate’s Art Dept is holding a contest starting now and ending on the end of October 30th, (That’s 11:59 PM EDT,) and we will reveal the winners on the 31st, or some time around there! The theme for this contest is, of course, Halloween! (Or Nightmare Night, whatever sizzles your bacon.)

Like I said, the theme is Halloween/Nightmare night! You know, Nightmare Moon, timber-wolves, dark forests, creepy dungeons, and GOBBLING UP LITTLE FOALS! Ahem… Give us a spooky scenario! Something to give us goosebumps when we judge! Okay, probably nothing you draw could scare me, but I hear SuperBrony is a scaredy-cat!

You can use any artistic means at your disposal, but if you STEAL other artists’ drawings or CHEAT in any way, you’re disqualified! You may collaborate with at least one other artist in this contest, but the two of you will have to either share the prizes or decide who gets it before-hand. Also, no NSFW allowed! For questionable/borderline content, contact a mod to give me (BaconMane) a shout. Or contact me yourself if I’m online!

Now then, onto the prizes! These prizes aren’t in any particular order. The first place winner gets to choose their prize first. The second place winner gets to choose their prize second, and the third place winner gets what remains! Here are the prizes available to our winners:

(Each winner will be featured on our website!)
- Gigabit: Either 5 sets of MLP cards OR 2 pocket-ponies.
- Shizuka: Dungeons of Dredmor OR Torchlight on Steam.
- SuperBrony64: Full 4-poster set of the Wal-Mart MLP posters. (Only in the U.S. or Canada because shipping.)
- Chiroko: One free request drawing, just for you! (Limitations will be discussed if you choose this prize.)

Look at all that freakin’ awesome stuff you could win! Artists, get your pencils/brushes/whatevers ready, and get drawing! Submission are to be sent to [email protected] !

Yours deliciously, BaconMane. (Art Dept. Lead)

Bronystate Art Contest Cancelled

Attention bronystate visitors/artists: Due to certain circumstances that I don’t feel like explaining, the “Summer Art Celebration” for 2012 has been cancelled. If you are unaware, this was an art contest that we’ve had going for a while now. Besides, we haven’t had any entries so we aren’t harming anyone! There is possibility of an art contest in the future, perhaps this winter of 2012-2013. Stick around, artists.

Any questions, ask me.
