Can you help me to come up with new contest topics? As you know I run monthly contests for SP-Studio artists on this website, and we have been doing these since October 2010. That’s A LOT of creativity and I hope you have as much fun creating those pictures as I have looking through them. And you know what? The next contest will be the 100th! But I run out of ideas for new topics. So I ask you to help me by suggesting some contest topics. Don’t be afraid, write down whatever comes to your mind!
A good topic is inspiring enough to use the SP-Studio in interesting ways, but it’s also nice to have topics with specific themes (like “Disney characters” or “Professional Wrestlers”). The only restriction is it should be something many people can relate to. What topics would you like to see in the future? Or should I start repeating old topics? Write your ideas in the blog comments, forum, on Twitter or Facebook!
Before I talk about the contests let me announce something about the forum: You can access the old forum again to save pictures and text. But it’s broken, so new posts do not work. I will switch to a new forum software and try to rescue as much as I can, but I cannot promise anything. So please save anything you want to keep.
Since this whole PHP problem made things a bit chaotic for me, an update is about to be finished and the Christmas Special is around the corner I will skip the picture contest for December. This means the current contest about ROAYALS runs longer. You can submit your pictures until November 31st. The voting will run trough December.
In the meanwhile have a look at the last winners: Congratulations to Art Vandelay for winning the FATALITY contest! Please contact me when you want to claim your prize – a free wish for a SP-Studio update. You can find all contest winners in the HALL OF FAME.
The final “80s cartoons” update will be out in a couple of days, after curing the cold which is picking on me right now. Until then you could join the current picture contest. Let’s celebrate Halloween with the gory topic FATALITY! Show a bloody, funny, cruel, famous or unusual death scene. Be creative! It’s important to not just show a Halloween costume. These pictures won’t count this time. And remember: This is not just about murder. So any Darwin Award winner counts for inspiration as well. Submit your picture until October 20th on the CONTEST PAGE. Then the voting will start.
And of course you can have a closer look on the recent winners as well. Congratulations to Eggyslav for winning the AUTUMN contest! You can find all contest winners in the HALL OF FAME.

NO game shows, NO casting shows, NO cartoons. I am looking forward to your pictures! Submit them until August 20th on the CONTEST PAGE. So there is still onw more day left.

After a little break for technical reasons there’s a new SP-Studio picture contest this month – and this time the topic is ROCK STARS! Show a famous musician (fictional or real) by using the SP-Studio and upload your picture until June 20th. Please don’t make up your own characters for this topic, it must be a famous rock star. There will be other contests with free topics for OCs.
Past contest winners can be seen in the HALL OF FAME.
Hurry! UPLOAD your picture about the topic FRIENDSHIP until April 20th to be part of the current SP-Studio contest. You can try to build two characters by combining, moving and spinning the parts in a creative way. Or you can just show a friend of a famous person / fictional character. Since this is a free topic you are also allowed to show what a good friend looks like to you personally.

Did you watch the Academy Awards? Let’s create some creative SP-Studio artworks inspired by Oscar nominated movies! Pick any movie you like, the year and category of the nominations do not matter.
