Here goes...

So my idea of a TamaTalk contest would be to have a sort of TamaTown scavenger hunt. I'm not sure if someone else had this idea and posted it or if it has already been a contest, but here's how it would work:

~Title~

TamaTown Star Photographer Contest!


~Description~

For this contest, any member of TamaTalk may enter. For this contest, an Admin on TamaTalk would post something to "find" in TamaTown (users would then need to be able to access TamaTown, so a list of codes to login would be found here). For example, one day, an Admin may post something saying "#1: Swirly Strawberry". A user could then look for something like an Ichigotchi in Swirly Sweet City and take a picture or screenshot, an Ichigotchi stuffed doll in their apartment with a Swirly doll next to it, or even Strawberry Cheesecake in Swirly Sweet City. This allows users to be creative. No copying allowed! At the end of each contest day, or throughout the day, TamaTalk members would post their image in the thread specialized for that day. Usernames would then be taken from people who have met the requirements that contest day by ONE Admin and posted onto a Word document. The next day, only those users would be able to enter and could have their images submitted, and so on and so on.


~Rules~

- Absolutely no copying other users' images!
- No spamming the threads!
- One entry a day per member, and no posting if you did not post the day before (this ties in with the one above a little bit)
- No running! (Just kidding!) Have fun!


~Winners~

After the last day, the final people who have completed EVERY contest day's requirements will be eligible to win. The grand prize winner would be chosen based on creativity of pictures, or, if there are too many members to judge, by random. There would be three runner-ups.


It may seem complex, but it's pretty simple; capture pictures around TamaTown while meeting that day's requirements! Perhaps an Admin may be able to word this contest better if this idea comes through. I really believe that TamaTalk members would enjoy this contest, and it may even motivate users to go out and buy a Music Star or Tama-Go!

Thank you for giving us the opportunity of being able to win a great prize!

Oh hey, I'm a United Statesian!

So, let's have a contest where we think of a better contest than this contest wait no that's stupid.

Here's my actual idea:

Participants come up with an idea for a tamagotchi-related video game. The game can be any genre and be available to any platform (Nintendo DS, PC, Xbox, etc.). Entries should contain a summary of the plot (including a list of characters) and a description of the mechanics involved.

Rules:
No copying other's works (that's just terrible)
No inappropriate material (no gibs, drugs, or swears, gosh)
One entry only

I do live in the United States. I would like to suggest an idea for a contest that would help further promote the new highly anticipated TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi®. In this contest, one must create an advertisement of their own to reflect his or her own favorite aspects of this new toy (and the ideas of previous Tamagotchi versions! :mimitchi:). Because Bandai has not yet released an official commercial for this brand new release, it is up to the Tamagotchi fans to envision, create, and execute one of their own advertisements based solely on his or her own preferences and imagination!

Given that not everyone has the access to a camcorder and/or other equipment for tapping commercials, there will be two formats of entry method. The first method would be to create a unique commercial video keeping in mind the new Tamagotchi release; the other method of entry would be creating a poster/ad also advertising this Tamagotchi. The rules for this contest, as well as some ideas to get one started, are as follows:

OFFICAL RULES FOR
“The Compose your Own TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi® Advertisement”
CONTEST


General RULES
1. One entry method only must be chosen (video or poster) by the entrant.
2. Entry itself should not include the entrant’s name, age, address, etc… Meaning that the all personal information should only be used to identify whose entry is whose, not for advertising a name.
3. Entry should be family friendly and appropriate for all audiences; no foul language or suggestive themes.
4. Entry must be submitted no later than September 15th via the Private Message system (PM) to the Admin of TamaTalk. Entrant should include his or her entry in the message using a link. Personal information will not be asked until the entrant is notified that they have placed as a prize winner.
5. This contest is open to Tamagotchi fans of all ages from all over the world, so there's no excuse but to enter! :lol:

Video format
1. Video commercial should not exceed 3 minutes.
2. Video should include the following: a reference to the new TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi® including, but not limited to key information, characters, pictures of designs, catchy slogans, etc…,creative ideas capturing the spirit and purpose of the video: what’s so special about this Tamagotchi? Why should one purchase this product? Why and how is it special to YOU, the creator of the video?
3. Video can either be videotaped (such as a skit or play) or it can be computer assembled using various software and editing programs.

Poster/Ad format
1. Poster should be the standard paper size of 8.5x11 in. Entrant may use the following template: http://i166.photobuc...ve/template.png
2. Poster should include the following: a reference to the new TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi® including, but not limited to key information, characters, pictures of designs, catchy slogans, etc…,creative ideas capturing the spirit and purpose of the poster: what’s so special about this Tamagotchi? Why should one purchase this product? Why and how is it special to YOU, the creator of the poster?
3. Poster can either be hand drawn and then scanned into the computer to use as an entry OR poster can be computer assembled using various software and editing programs.

WINNERS
The contest will be judged on a number of criteria. Level of detail, overall creativity, uniqueness, dedication of time in creating the entry, level of persuasion and expression, but most importantly, the judges should answer the question: “Would you want to own the TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi®?” with a definite YES!!
There will be TWO Grand Prize Winners, one will be chosen from the Video Commercial format and the other will be chose from the Poster/Ad format. Additionally, the judges will choose two runner up entries in each format. Winners will be notified via email and will have five days to reply and claim their prize: two newly released TamaTown™ TamaGo's by Tamagotchi®!

This contest requires all Tamagotchi fans to think out of the box in order to create a memorable entry. Be creative. Be passionate! Think beyond the mundane advertisement techniques and come up with something new! Don’t be afraid to use color, pictures, voices/dialogue, music, role-play, costumes, and even friends to make the highly anticipated TamaTown™ TamaGo by Tamagotchi® come to life before one actually gets his or her hands on it!

Best of luck and may the most fanatical advertisement win!

I live in the USA.

My idea is to have a trivia contest testing the knowledge of fans of tamagotchi past and present.

Hi i live in the US and my plan for a contest is you make your own version of a tamagotchi make its own character chart, the games, the food, and everything else a good tama needs. And also how it looks how it connects how many tamas can you have at a time.

I live in the US :o

My idea is:
Design a perfect bedroom for your favorite tamagotchi!

Rules:
1. It has to be an original picture that you designed.
2. You can't copy an idea from anywhere.
3. Only one entry per person.
4. It has to be in color.
5. Has to do with the tamagotchi character mentioned somewhere.
6. No more than 500x500 pixels.
7. No using copyrighted things.
8. No using the example.

Example:
Bedroom for Memetchi with pink and orange furniture, along with posters of Meme town(or something like that)

EDIT: Some spelling errors.

I'm game!
Here's my idea:
Turn your state into Tama Land. You have to use themes that apply to your state. For example; redesign your state flag to have tamagotchi themes. Your state bird? What tamagotchi would you replace it with?
My state's symbol (Utah) is a beehive, so I would find a way to incorporate Shimashimatchi into my flag. See?

I live in Canada and i think you guys should have a tamagotchi drawing contest. The people entering could draw anything tamagotchi or tamagotchi related.
You would only be able to enter once, and no innapropriete (SP?) drawings. Then whoever wins could get a prize of your choice, or just the satisfaction of winning.

So... Yeah! That's my idea.

PS. Thanks so much for doing this! Since I live in Canada, the only way I can get one is if I buy one online. But my mom says it's too expenseve. I know I dont a a very big chance, but it's worth a shot!

I think that a great contest for the future is to write an essay or story about your favourite tamas, submit it to you and you read them. And whoever has a great story or essay-with good details and such-should win.

This is my idea. I hope that its a good one!

I live in Canada.

How about a create-a-Tamagotchi-line contest?
The goal would be to create a fictional growth path for a Tamagotchi character from baby to adult stage. I'd really like to see which cool/cute Tamagotchi character designs TamaTalkers could come up with!

- It could be based on any existing Tamagotchi toy. (Meaning participants could make a line of Angels, Forest Tamagotchis, Ura characters, or etc.)
- For fun and extra creativity, the entrants could list the conditions of getting the characters, favourite snacks, sleeping schedules and etc.

Hello. I am known in my family to be creative so I REALLY hope that's true today--here is my idea.
I think for the next contest, you would have to make up a BRAND-NEW Tamagotchi. It would have to be a shape other than the common egg shape (like a star or something) and have a made-up design of your own, and also make up a special new Tamagotchi Character to go with it. Grand prize winner gets a Tamagotchi with their design and the character to take care of inside which is the one they made up and a carrying case. (Only if this isn't too much trouble :P and Runner-up would be a regular Tamagotchi Familitchi with a random design. You don't have to include my prizes and make up your own for this contest, but I thought it would be a good idea to give some suggestions anyway. :)
Cheers,
K.K. Joy

I live in the US and My idea is:
that the Tama Talk users could make a current Tamagotchi character out of something you like to do or depict your Tamagotchi Device in a scene that best matches it or matches you! ^_^ An example would be a yellow Tamagotchi Color in the sand at a beach or a Kuromametchi made of leaves and twigs depicted underneath a tree! This competition would be a great comp for everyone creative or just a person who knows there personality well. There entries would be able to be photo shopped or altered to really bring out what they want to stand out in there picture. :) Like any comp there would be a #1 winner and runner ups! The winner and runner ups creations could even be displayed in a new competitions category under a sub-category if the admin could do so! :D I think this competitions is really great for everyone and is doable for anyone as long as they have a camera! ^_^
:lol: Thanks, MntKodi :ph34r:

I do not live in the US or Canada, in fact, in Sweden, but a cousin of mine is getting married this fall, and the bride is American. The wedding will be in USA, so my family is going there some time in October, and then the eventual prize could be sent to the bride's family, who could give it to me when I'm there or send it to me!
If so, I will give you her address, and that problem will be solved!

I'm probably not going to win anyway because of all these fantastic ideas over here! It's like a sea of creativity!


Well, here goes anyway:
The idea is that the participants of this contest will write a movie script each, like directors of their own movie.
The movie will be taking place on the tamagotchi planet, will be played by tamagotchi actors, and will be as if it was made by tamagotchis too.
The script will involve a good description of the story, tamagotchi actors for at least 15 of the most dominant roles, at least 5 tamagotchis participating in making the movie, like cameraman, producer, responsible for publicity, etc.
The location where the movie will be recorded, is also needed, like gurugu town, forest patchi, TamaEarth & Expo amusment park, etc. You could also make up a place on tamagotchi planet of your own where it will be recorded!
You have to make at least 3 pictures related to the movie, like scenes, group pictures of the actors, etc.
The pictures can be computer made, or hand made. Hand made pictures can be scanned in, but it would also work to take a photo of them and upload them in a link.
Also remember; All grants must be original, no copying, and remember to respect the younger people here on TT, like don't use swearing words, etc.
The grants will be posted as replies in a competition topic, or as separate topics.
The more details, actor names, pictures, the better.
The judging will be based on humor, good story, creativity and imagination, not necessarily drawing skills <_<
Prize(s) should be a tamagotchi, tamagotchi movie dvd, or similar.

~lolokotchi~ :mimitchi:

Thanks Admin for making this tamago competition!

I think that the next contest should be that the winner of the contest should receive a Rare TamaTown /Tamagotchi/TamaTalk Special Mug with A Brand New Tama Go and a Tama Go Case with maybe a list of Special Shop Codes and maybe a T-Shirt that says "I Gotta Have My Tama- Go!!" or maybe "I'm OBSSESED With Tama-Go!" Or a cute slogan. The runner up should get just the Tama-Go . :)
