Birthday GIF Contest!
GIFs are the best gifts ever! Unwrap your creativity with a GIF as we celebrate AQW’s 15th birthday together.
Greetings, heroes! Another year of epic adventures, quests, and battles is here, and we are excited to celebrate AQW’s 15th birthday in style! But what's a birthday celebration without our incredible community of heroes like YOU? That's why we're totally thrilled to announce our "Create a Birthday GIF Contest," giving our beloved community the chance to showcase their creativity while sharing their love for our wonderful world!
For this GIF contest, we're diving deep into the heart of our fantasy world… and memes. With 15 years of content to use, we know you’ll have no problem coming up with awesome, amazing, and/or hilarious AQW GIFs. Whether it's a thrilling boss battle, a nostalgic moment, a hilarious meme, or anything in-between, we want your creativity to capture the essence of AQWorlds!
Up to 5 GIFs allowed per player
GIFs must be in standard .GIF format
Duration cannot exceed 15 seconds (although Giphy recommends 6 seconds max)
GIFs must be AQW-themed. GIFs can use in-game art, or art that you created yourself
Parodying memes is totally fine, so long as it uses AQW in-game art or art that you created
Content must adhere to our game's community guidelines (no offensive or inappropriate material; if you wouldn’t show it to your religious grandmother, don’t show it to us either, lol)
Our contest is open to all players from all over the world, regardless of your in-game level or experience!
This goes without saying, but anyone caught cheating / stealing someone else’s work will be disqualified.
What's a contest without fantastic prizes? We know it’s AQWorlds’ birthday and all – but we want to give YOU amazing gifts, too! Of course it’s going to be difficult narrowing down our favorites, so that’s why an extensive panel of judges will help us pick the winners!
First Place: 5,000 AdventureCoins + Birthday Collection Chest
Second Place: 2,500 ACs + Birthday Collection Chest
Third Place: 1,000 ACs + Birthday Collection Chest
Runner Ups: Birthday Collection Chest
In the event a winner has already purchased the Birthday Collection Chest, they can instead gift it to a friend, another AQW account, or receive 10,000 ACs.
But of course the best gift of all is getting to share your amazing GIFs with everyone in the world <3
