Throughout time, artists have set their talents to capturing pivotal moments in history. To commemorate the grandest of crusades for Azeroth’s heroes, we’re asking you to bring forth your talents to encapsulate the campaign into Argus. Let the fel* of your creativity flow using pens, pencil, paints, or your favorite art program to capture the events, people, and environs of the Shadows of Argus for posterity… and prizes.

We’re looking for your best Argus themed artwork either with traditional media or via digital media.
  • First Place: Three qualified entrants will be chosen and receive one World of Warcraft: Legion Collector’s Edition signed by the World of Warcraft Art Team and one Starseeker Pet and Mount Bundle.
  • Runner-Ups: Ten qualified entrants will be chosen to receive one Starseeker Pet and Mount Bundle.

Entries can be submitted during the period of August 30 through September 30, 2017 to [email protected]. Each submission must be a high-resolution JPEG file of no more than 5MB in size to be considered for the contest. A submission must be your original work, and cannot include, in whole or part, any previously created work.

You can find the full contest rules here.

Good luck in your artistic journey!

*You may need a bit of green – perhaps some purples too, but definitely green. Use fel responsibly. May cause itching, skin pigmentation changes and irritation, general hunger, and sudden feelings of world domination. Do not use without warlock or demon hunter supervision. Do not use fel and operate heavy machinery. Warnings aside, we’re sure it will all be fine.

I see a lot of questions asking if 3D Sculpts are okay and I just want to verify. I've been planning for some hand painted game ready characters. Is this allowed in the contest?
Yes. We aren't limiting the style of art here.

Ah man, this could be really fun. Could we perhaps draw our own characters exploring Argus? Or does the artwork have to be strictly canon stuff?
Nope, go for it! Don't feel like your limited by anything here. We are simply looking for an Argus theme in each piece, whether that's your character or a canon part of the story, a non-canon part of the story, etc.

How about engraving? If i were to do a themed piece in metal with etching and engraving would that count?
Yep, should be fine!

Just wondering if there's an auto reply for the contest entry emails? I sent in my submission and didn't hear anything back, just wanted to make sure that was normal :)
Nope, there's no auto reply! We will start going through them and reaching out to folks starting in about a week or so.

FWIW, I do see your entry in the inbox, so don't worry. :)

What if we already have the starseeker mount bundle? Will we get to choose a different bundle? Or perhaps get cash equivalent? Or just too bad so sad?

Also, will we be able to see other people's entries once the contest is over? :)
We're gonna have a chat and figure that out.

And yes, we hope to be able to share these on our blog and social media!

Sent mine in a couple days ago! I really hope that you guys received it...this is my first art contest ever with Blizzard and I'm really excited!!! I've been playing WoW ever since MoP but never participated in an art contest before. I wish Blizzard made a book and sold it in the shop of just art contest entries done by the fans for the year. Kind of like an art yearbook! I'd buy that in a heartbeat!

Also, my piece was done on canvas so it was difficult to get a perfect photo without any glare while being perfectly true to the colors. Could I send in a follow-up image of the same piece?
Go for it - should be fine. : )

Hey Ornyx, I submitted my contest entry. I actually submitted from my Professional e-mail versus my Blizzard Account email. I sent the corresponding e-mail as a response. I hope this won't cause any issue with my entry.

Best of luck to everyone who entered!
Thanks for the update - I'm not sure I see a reply email like that in the inbox. Could you send it again?

Okay! I have sent it again from the proper e-mail address that is associated with my Blizzard account. I have included (3D Character) in the title of the Subject. Please let me know if it went through on your end if you get a chance.

Thanks for responding in such a speedy manner btw!
I didn't get anything - are you sure you're sending it to "[email protected]"?

Okay, I turned off my AV program that may have been affecting the way my e-mails were being sent. I have sent a hopefully final e-mail in regards to the submission.

I apologize for any inconveniences or "spam"
Got it! Sorry for the inconvenience and such. :)

Just submitted mine, can't wait to see what everyone made~

Can we post our entries on social media or should we wait until after the results?

Thanks for all the awesome submissions here - the contest is now closed! I'll spend the next day or so reviewing and verifying all the entries we received, and then we'll move into our judgment period.

If you entered the contest, expect an email regarding your status no later than October 30.
