    Eorzean Egg Decoration Contest (NA)

    Spring is a time for growth and renewal, much like the rebirth of Eorzea. However, we must still be mindful of past traditions, and now comes the season of Hatching-tide—a festive celebration in which people paint beautifully colored eggs to pay homage to the Twelve.

    And so, in the spirit of the season, we beseech adventurers to participate. Using an egg as your canvas, create a piece of FINAL FANTASY XIV art for a chance to win an exclusive FFXIV: A Realm Reborn postcard set!

    Event Period
    Wednesday, March 15, 2013 3:30 a.m. to Monday, April 1, 2013 1:01 a.m.

    How to Enter
    Take a picture of your decorated egg and post it as a reply to the entry thread.
    *One entry per person. If multiple entries are posted, only the first one submitted will be accepted.

    Entry Format
    Picture Resolution: No larger than 1024x1024 pixels.
    Picture Format: JPG or PNG
    *The entry must be an original work that was created specifically for this contest.
    * A picture may not be accepted if its resolution or aspect ratio deviates greatly from the above.
    *Please note that some image hosting websites such as Flickr will delete images when an account is inactive for a certain amount of time, so make sure to verify this when choosing a site to host your entry image.


    Please include the following in your forum post:
    • Entry title (within 25 characters)
    • Comment about your entry (up to 50 characters)
      *Please note that the above will be posted publicly.
    The FFXIV Development and Operations Team will select 3 of the best entries based on overall creativity on or around Friday, April 12, 2013 and announce the winners on the forums.

    How to empty an egg:
    1. Put cellophane tape on the top and bottom of the egg.
    2. With a drill or other tool, poke a hole in the top portion where tape has been placed for both ends, and drain out the liquid.
    3. By blowing air through one of the holes, the rest of the liquid will come out of the other end.
    4. Make sure to have a plate available as the liquid might come out quickly.
    5. Rinse out the egg with water and let it dry.
    6. Start to decorate your egg!


    Prizes:
    • 3 winners will each receive a FFXIV A Realm Reborn postcard set
      *Prizes will be sent to the address used when registering your Square Enix Account
