why arnt the pony scenes sepourate ? surely its different criteria for crafts and pony scenes as crafts can be anything
Over the last couple of years, we've had less entries for the pony scene contests. IIRC, there weren't even three entries last year plus, pony scenes are things that get made, as are crafts, so we decided to combine them this year.
If the amount of entries picks up, then it might become a separate category again in the future (but don't quote me there )

Well I can't promise hundreds but I've already started my art work and I'll most likely try either a scene or destroy-a-fakie as I have a similar idea for both (one's just a tad more tragic haha). Then I'll see if I get confident with my custom making
Hey. Can anyone tell me a little more about the comps. I know what the custom and cosplay comp is, but that's it. Xx
Custom ponies - basically make your own pony! Using a pony that might be a litle past his or her best, paint, re-hair, decorate, in any way you like to create your own unique pony.
Crafts is anything that you have made - so plushies, crocheted/knitted things, folded paper ponies, jewellery, clay, stuff like that. Pony scenes are generally, but not always, set on a cardboard base (or inside a box with the front/sides cut off) that has been styled and decorated to make a scene. This can be, but doesn't HAVE to be, themed to match the con theme - so you might have decorated the inside of the box to look like a spaceship, for example, and put your ponies inside to be the ships crew.
Artwork - ponies that you have painted/drawn. This can either be digital art, or hand drawn.
Best stall - if you are having a stall, decorate it to match our space theme.
Destroy a Fakie - my favourite contest, o'course! 'Fakies' is a term used to describe any pony toy that is not a My Little Pony. Basically, you have to think of a creative way to totally ruin your fake pony/ponies - for example, past entries have included cutting the fakie up, coverig it with 'blood' (red paint!) and laying it on a hand-made mini operating table, or hanging fakies from a mini gallows. Be creative, be gory if you wish, but please don't make it too scary or bad taste....remember there will be kids present in the room
Cosplay - dress yourself as a pony. Any pony you like, or any character (Spike the dragon for example). PLEASE ensure your costume is in good taste
