New Contest: Brave Colors


Colour does work magic. Add just a little bit of colour to your space – here and there – and it will brighten up your home and improve your mood better than a bowl of ice-cream. Add a little more to create a special atmosphere: relaxed, energetic, cheerful, or even dramatic – the choice is all yours. Add even more to achieve a totally overwhelming effect. Brighten up your life a bit and let your imagination go wild!

Some colors are easier to use than other… This contest will be all about those harder colors. You will not get any soft blue or beige in this contest. This is all about the wild colors, the hard to use colors, the scary colors. We challenge you to be brave and go for it. To use the colors that scares you!

The application round/round 1 is now open!

Be brave and join us!

The Task

Take any EA residential lot. Take before pictures of the house. We want you to finish what EA started and turn the house into what it should have been.  Take what EA tried to do and do it right. Add details to it, decorate it, change the colours. See the rules for more details.

The winner of Taste is announced

Over the summer the LivingSims forum has been bustling with beautiful kitchens in our Taste contest. We started out with 21 contestants and, over the course of 3 rounds, we had it narrowed to down to just the six very best ones. They battled it out in the fourth round and all created amazing kitchens. The judges had a really hard time scoring the final round but in the end we had a winner… Trophy05 won with her amazing stylish kitchen. Congratulations Trophy05! Thank you to everyone who took part in the contest – we hope you all had fun and that we will see you in future contests.

New Contest: Taste

We all need to eat, it is a basic premise of being human. Some of us just want whatever is easiest while others are passionate about food and food preparation. Food can be and do a lot of things; it brings back memories, fills our empty stomachs, makes us smile, delights or disgust. When our basic need for nutrients is met then food becomes all about taste.

This contest is all about taste and all about where we prepare and cook food – the kitchens! They are not the easiest room in the house and we know a lot of you find them hard. But, we were so impressed with the kitchens in our last big contest that we decided that the next contest had to be all about kitchens.

Do you want to create the best possible kitchen you can? Well then this is the contest for you! We will be designing kitchens for four very different sims with very different tastes and needs!

Winner of Sims Next door announced & New Contest!

Summer is coming and it is time to go on vacations, perhaps even go overseas somewhere. When we are away we often think of home and our loved ones who can not be there with us right now. That is when we write and send postcards home. We want such a postcard to be part of the next back cover of the magazine and we want you to take the shot for the post card. In this digital age it is easy to create your own postcards rather than making due with the tourist shots they sell on the beach – so lets turn up the wow-factor and create some amazing postcards.
