Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Cookie Contest! All of the entries looked so delicious we want to eat our monitors. We are excited that this years competition was judged by Orteil and Opti, the creators of the genre-defining idle game, Cookie Clicker! Here is basically how it went down...
Orteil: on a scale from Mr. Rogers to American Idol, how harsh and merciless should we be Artix: Uh... Orteil: no mercy, got it Artix: O_O
When you think about it, it is pretty meta to have the creators of a cookie game judge a real life cookie contest based on another series of games. Here we go!

We know you love DRAGONS. We also know you love Fan Art Contests. And we know you loveloveLOVE getting free stuff. So we all know what that means: it’s time for our first-ever AdventureQuest DRAGONS Fan Art Contest!
Dragon Masters Needed: Eligibility Requirements
Since this contest is all about AdventureQuest DRAGONS, you’ll need to download and play DRAGONS (if you haven’t already) so you have references for your Fan Art creation!
This contest is OPEN to any player of every Artix Entertainment game, but the Contest Prizes will only be awarded insideAdventureQuest Worlds. We are unable to award prizes inside Mobile Games (sorry!), so it isimportant to have DRAGONS installed on your smartphone and/or tablet AND have an active AdventureQuest Worlds account in case your Fan Art submission wins!
Contest Rules (follow these EXACTLY, or your entry WILL BE disqualified!)
This is the most important part of the whole contest. Read all the rules below BEFORE entering your DRAGONS Fan Art submission.
Follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.
1. Create AdventureQuest DRAGONS Fan Art! You can Draw, Paint, Flash, Photoshop, 3D Print, Sculpt, Bake/Decorate, Comic-strip, Cosplay, or create a Stuffed Animal/Plushie of anything relating to AQ DRAGONS. Get creative here, folks!
IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit random drawings of random dragons. This contest is ONLY wanting fan art of the Dragons found within the mobile game, AdventureQuest DRAGONS.
2. Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No teaming up with friends, sorry.
3. DO NOT trace or steal ANY artwork! If your fan art is stolen from any Artix game, or traced overpreexisting DRAGONS art work, or directly copied from another dragon-related photo online, YOU WILL BE disqualified.
4. Your AQ DRAGONS Fan Art entry MUST include your AQW Character Name somewhere on the picture. No name = no chance at winning, and the possibility of someone else stealing your hard work. Pleasewrite/sign your AQW Character Name legibly so we can actually read it =) Also: DO NOT CHANGE your AQW Character name during the contest and contest judging!
5. Put the date on your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!
6. Type your AQWorlds Character Name in your Tweet BEFORE submitting. That way, if you win, I can easily copy your Character Name for faster prize awarding and no mistakes.
7. Include hashtag #DRAGONS in your Tweet so that way the whole world can see your awesome art, too!
Everyone who participated in the competition (so long as you didn’t cheat!) will receive a 2014 House Depot Badge for your AQWorlds Character Page. Please be patient while award each badge as it will take us several days to complete the process. The winners in the below categories will receive special prizes in addition to their Badge. Let’s see if you won!
Grand Prize Winner Winners
This was a tough one. So many amazing submissions and we could only choose 1 Grand Prize Winner. But we couldn’t pick just 1… so we have 2 Grand Prize Winners!
Created by Mr Zul and Capn Cio
Tired after a plunderin’ day? Drop anchor on ye’ TreehouseShip, Matey! All the amenities of a true Pirate’s Life at ye’ hooks: white sand at ye’ peg-leg, peaceful quarters, convenient hangin’ point on your Crow’s Nest an’ 100 miles to Tortulgar Inn only! Yarrrr!
House of Vita
Created by Prime, Nici , Ryuu
The house of the Stars, this structure is the remainder of an ancient civilization, Vita. Living knowledge of the cosmos is stored within its crystal shards. The entire structure is powered by the Stars gem at the top.
These two houses will soon be created in AdventureQuest Worlds for everyone to enjoy. The players who created these houses will receive their creation for FREE, plus a bonus of 1,500 AdventureCoins! Woohoo!
1st Place Winners
These players did an AMAZING job designing their houses! We wish we could transform ALL of these into in-game houses, but we’re just a small team and only have so many hands (we’re looking to employ an artistic octopus). These 1st Place Winners will receive 1,000 AdventureCoins in AQWorlds =D
2nd Place Winners
Glorious! Stupendous! Insert another adjective here! The following entries made it into our 2nd Place Winners, and for that, will each receive 500 AdventureCoins.

Miguel Mendes is the winner of the 1st AQ3D monster design contests with his entry, the Acevorah. The team modeled and animated his monsterous creation. Give it a little bit to load, then use keys 0 through 8 to trigger animations. To change the camera angle, click and drag. Below is the original monster entry.
Does the file load? Is it animating in your browser? Let us know if it works and what you think! Comment below. 15% chance I will see your Twitter post... but 100% I will see if you post here.
Yergenhere! There were well over 450 submissions to Legend of LORE’s first ever contest. Each and every submission was awesome in its own right. The monsters ranged from cute, silly, gross, to downright frightening. Oddly enough I didn’t see any monsters that shot lightning out of their butts. Anyhoo - The battle was tough, so tough in fact that we extended the deadline to let a few more monsters get in. In the end, however, a winner (or shall I say - winners) has emerged. What better way to celebrate a 10 year anniversary, than with winners! Here is how it all breaks down:
Gargantuan Grand Prize Winner!
The winner’s monster will be “Thytonized,” 3D modeled by Xero, painted and animated by the 3D team and will be put in one of the first playable maps in Legend of LORE. The winner will get a print of the monster, signed by the entire Legend of LORE team, and 4000 Artix Points.
And the winner is...... Acevorah: by Vypie
Rightful Runner Up
The runner up will get a limited edition black variant Artix or Sepulchure figure, or a signed poster of your choice. (You may only choose one of the previous items.) And 4000 Artix Points.
And the runner up is...... Cappy the Guardian in a Box: by Jaikon
