This is not my picture. If it is yours, I will give you credit.

By right who should be Queen/King?

That’s right, this is is a photo contest of the royal of your herd! The contestant can be any generation, any gender, any type of pony, or custom. If the pony you choose is royal to you, they are a contestant in this contest!

How to win the contest.

You will submit a picture of your pony that represents the theme. It will then be voted on by the arena! Your votes will get you your numbers for the random number generator. At the end of all the rounds, a random number generator will be used to pick a number, and that will be our grand winner! There is multiple ways to gain more numbers for the generator. I will go into details with the rules and entry

To Enter.

1. Submit a photo of your royal pony in the designated theme. It will also have a bio of the pony royalty. You will use this pony for all themes. Any gender, any generation, any type, any custom pony is acceptable, as long as they are royal to you.
2. You may submit a photo of a wing design for a flutter/winger pony. It does not have to fit the themes. This is your own design.
3. You may submit a photo of a pony or human outfit you would like made. It does not have to fit the theme. This is your own design.
4. All photos are submitted in the discussion forum.

So 3 ways to enter! But only way to get more numbers in the number generator!

Rules to Enter Pony

1. The pony you choose to enter, has to be used in all themes of the competition.
2. Each pony entered will receive 1 bonus number. That number will be given by the order the picture was submitted. This will happen for each theme.
3. The photo will be judged by the arena. Those votes will also give you more numbers. EXAMPLE: if you gain 5 votes in theme 1 you will get numbers 1,2,3,4,5. If you get 3 votes in theme 2 you will get numbers 6, 7,8.
4. Numbers are awarded in order. 1st place will get numbers first, then 2nd, 3rd and so on.
5. Bonus number will be given to 1st and 2nd place winners.
6. All numbers will be written down, and at anytime you may request a photo or copy of the numbers you have.
7. The winner will be chosen by a number generator. I plan to find a non participant to choose the number.

Enter by Wing or Outfit Design
1. You may submit one photo, with description, of your wing or outfit design per theme.
2. This is not about art ability, but fun inspiration.
3. You may enter each category, (pony, wing, outfit)
4. This will give you 1 extra number for the generator for each submission. If there is multiple entries in a category, (wing or outfit) voting will happen. The number system will be the same as the pony royalty system.
5. Outfit can be human, human and pony, or pony.
6. Wing may be for winger or flutter pony.
7. Your number is given in the order your photo was submitted.

Post by: Snapdragon on March 09, 2019, 09:48:49 AM
This is such an interesting idea for a contest! I like the idea of it being a 'random draw', with bonus points awarded for popularity. But it's cool that even if your design isn't 'popular', it can still win! :) I'm gonna try to figure out an entry! Now to choose a pony ... oh boy! O.O;;
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest
Post by: Crowning_Glory13 on March 09, 2019, 01:00:36 PM
Glad you like the idea. I felt random was a better way to surprise with the winner. I also wanted options for those to enter but not have the long term commitment
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest
Post by: Safflower on March 09, 2019, 10:04:43 PM
Is it alright if we submit our first entry here?
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest

Yes. I will put that in my notes too. You submit your photos in the forum:)

Post by: Safflower on March 10, 2019, 12:42:41 AM
Thank you CG! Here is my entry:

Moonstone!
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Moonstone was one of the first ponies in my collection. The wisest and oldest, she guards over the now larger herd. She works with Majesty in the Dream Castle to watch over Ponyland - here, you can see her with a scroll on some statistics :) (It reads "Ponyland Report - Lickety-Split's ice cream sales - Megan's next visit - Pretty Parlor visitors")

And she is a beautiful queen!!!
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest
Post by: Minty_Magic on March 10, 2019, 11:26:22 AM
Ahh So cute Safflower! I adore her little scroll! I can see Moonstone is a great leader!

Here is my entry for the pony queen! I had a very hard time choosing, so ultimately it came down to, "well who did I get tattooed on my arm? Obviously one of them should be queen!" Between Sparkleworks and Minty, it came down to my namesake.

 (https://flic.kr/p/RkCkCg)
Introducing Queen Minty of Socks; ruler of all things green! Our herd has never had a designated queen or even leader exactly. who should we choose? After much scrambling and a little bit or arguing among the citizens, The vote came down to two elders, who have been in the herd since the beginning. Sparkleworks and Minty. Sparkleworks probably would have been the more responsible leader and she WAS the founder, but this herd likes to have fun, and Minty can promise that life will be a blast under her rule! Sparkleworks was happy to hand over the crown, as she prefers a more quiet, less public life anyway. Minty may have also bribed a few voters with a promise of cool socks. ;)

And here is an entry for the wing design contest too! I wanted to do a wing entry last time as well, but never had the time! I managed to throw something together real quick this weekend though! :)

The black parts are supposed to look glittery, kind of like the butterfly wings you have been making lately! Different colors can be put under the black parts to create a kind of stained glass effect! In my example I decided to give Rosedust a kind of classic butterfly color scheme.

Welcome Queen Minty....I have not much to say in the random number but...I like free socks.

Rosedust this wings are beautiful...love the idea:)

Oooo I love photo contests. I have a new royal pony on it's way to me but our current herd queen might have to enter if the other doesn't arrive before deadline :D
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest
Post by: Crowning_Glory13 on March 13, 2019, 12:56:07 PM
I had to change the due dates to the 18th! I am transitioning between jobs so I get a day off to do the starting post. I adjusted the dates to compensate my work issues.

So more time to enter! Enter by March 18

If you dont want to have the commitment of the pony, just enter a drawing of a wing, ony outfit, or human outfit. You can even do all 3.

Prizes for a random drawing. The winner gets to choose:)
Prizes for the one who has the most votes for their pony!

I hand out more prizes if I have more entering:)

Oh man, this looks fun!

Unfortunately Winter Snow, my queen since the early 2000's, has been gone for quite a while and I haven't actually picked anyone to take her place until she returns, looks like this is my chance to pick one! :D

Ive got a little work to do for college, so when I take a break I'll do a little photoshoot!

I'm loving everyone's entries so far! :heart:

I'd like to enter, but I'm not sure if I'll have time.
Title: Re: By Right I Should Be Queen/King Photo Contest enter by March 18
Post by: Crowning_Glory13 on March 13, 2019, 09:32:28 PM
Sora you can still enter. If you start and unable to finish you will still have numbers to possibly win the drawing.

Might as well go for it. I am very easy to communicate with. If we need more time for a photo, just let us know. If its not a month long wait, we make it work.

Oh yeah....I have the first and last theme...but not sure my future themes.

I will give a number to any theme ideas submitted until the 18th:)

So, when I thought you said royals, you meant actual royal ponies, so I went with this Princess Celestia. She is currently ruling over the Seaquestria playset, with other castles delegated to other releases of Celestia. Naturally, as in the FiM show itself, Celestia was made ruler of her particular kingdom because she is taller than the other ponies, and therefore more impressive and presumably the most powerful.

Lilly Drop may be young but she is the self appointed queen of the other baby sea ponies (although her twin sister Sea Poppy would argue that she should be queen) No day is complete without a few tricks played on her "subjects" or a swim in the royal treasure chest. Here Lilly Drop snatches a crown to prove she is the queen.

Introducing...Queen Ivy!

 (https://ibb.co/fDw8MyR)
(Ivy pictured with Ice Princess' symbols (I apologize for the messy drawing lol))

Ivy has lived in PonyVille her entire life with her two sisters Light Heart and Sky Skimmer. She was never royal to begin with but one day Ice Princess (Winter Snow) vanished without a trace and the PonyVille she once loved began to crumble before her eyes. More residents began disappearing and only Ivy, her sisters, and a few G3's remained.
So, she picked up a cape, wrapped it around her and declared herself Queen, until Ice Princess returned and promised to restore the village she loved. Soon after that promise her friends began to reappear, some old and some new, but still no sign of the princess...



Bonus picture because I really liked how it turned out XD

The weather is being kind, so here's my entry (Props to Minty Magic for making one of my favorite Sunny Daze army pieces!!)
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Princess Sunnia Dazie arrived at the herd and was quickly fawned over by the other Sunny Dazes, as well as the other ponies. Although Fluttershy is the leader of the Triquine sector, being the first to create peace with the Quadrahippos and working closely with Cotton Candy, leader of the Uniquines, she saw how beloved Sunnia was and decided to appoint her as the supreme ruler of all four sectors. Sunnia is a bit new to this whole ruling business, but luckily she has many of the other leaders and a whole bunch of helpful ponies to get her used to regality.
It is her first Spring in this herd, so Quadra Honeybuzz is helping to familiarize her with the local flora and fauna. Sunnia hasn't seen Honeycomb in real life before! Honeybuzz tells her of a new swarm that will need looking after in the next month, so she needs to get used to the feeling of bees buzzing about.

Love all the other royals! Here is my entry:

Princess Dream Blue loves everything that sparkles, even her walls shimmer in the sunlight! She loves to accessorise with glittering jewels. Her shiny pink hair cascades down to the floor. She loves nothing more to dress up with her friends and dream about what it would be like to be a magnificent queen.

By Royal Decree! A missive, sent from the court of Princess Royal Purple, First of Her Name, Our Lady of Lashes:
*cue trumpet fanfare*

"By right I should be queen, as such a title bestow'th,
Of royal pink, and glittering tinsel, my flowing mane doth grow'th.

A noble purple coat, of royalest, queenliest hue,
For the name of Royal Purple, only a crown will do!

My Royal Court of three are made; their eyelashes very fine,
Thick and bushy - but of course, never bigger than mine!

I hereby enter, mascara wand at the ready, aim and fire:
I ready myself for the contest at hand; that crown I will acquire!"

PS, now that the princess has finished her speech, here's my wing entry too!

EDIT: So I read the rules 2 weeks ago, and only skimmed them today - and I totally missed the whole point of the headshot was to be a solo shot! A-doy! :shocked: So I retook her photo and replaced it above, I hope that's alright!!

I also finished my outfit entry! I looked at the rules and I think it's okay to have a wing and outfit design; but if not, feel free to disregard one!

I just whipped this out really quick, because I was trying to think of what would look good in a crochet medium. When I think crochet, I think a little more old-fashioned, and that made me think of Holly Hobby! I really love the gentle, sort of pioneer-ish looking dresses, and I thought it might be possible to make something that looks sort of gingham-ish with yarn! And maybe add in a little lace, and a little apron and bonnet - too cute! :heart: I tried to note all of the details I thought were pertinent, and included a little thumbnail color guide, too. But it could be done in any colors, really!

So cute. Yes you get an entry for the wing, yes you get an entry for the outfit. You can submit an idea each round too.

I did see the group pictures and saw it was super cute. I was going to allow the picture just take away one entry. I get we all miss things:) I am very easy to work with.

Today is the last day to enter this round. I make the new post Tuesday. I still have to think of a theme too....not sure what to make the theme. Yes you get an entry if you submit theme ideas:)

It's a super stupid question I apologize but if you're including the picture of each king/queen on the poll, would you be able to use the 'bonus' picture I attached at the bottom of my entry? I like that one better than the top picture that's all XD

I hope that makes sense haha.
