January Monthly Challenge

It’s a new year, and time for a new challenge! And what better theme to kick off 2020 with than with a theme celebrating a fresh start to the season?

Daiyo has selected the first theme of this year as:

New Beginnings

With such an open ended theme, anything is possible, so go out into Eorzea and give us something new to see!

As always, the winner will receive a minion or another item of similar value from the Mogstation of their choice, and can select the next month’s theme.

ENTM’s monthly challenges are open to the wider community, even if you have never participated in an ENTM contest before. Screenshots must be taking using only ingame tools, such as Gpose, without any mods or post-process editing like Photoshop. Screenshots can include player characters or be “scenic” without any characters or NPCs if desired. Screenshots can be any orientation.

To enter, join our Discord channel by >>>> clicking here <<<< and send a DM to Admin Katarh that includes your character name and the shot that you want to submit.

Entries must be received before 11:59 PM EST on January 25th, 2020.

2019 Monthly Challenge Winner(s)!

Out of the 12 monthly challenges last year, the following models all won exactly twice.

Ni’ko Shae

Ona Greene

ENTM is truly a community effort and we’re so lucky to have everyone be part of the ENTM community. Every one of you gets to wear the crown of 2019 Monthly Challenge winner into 2020! (Psssst this means you can be badgered into becoming a judge, too!)

December Challenge Winner

While 2020 is hear, we still have to close out the final contest of 2019 by announcing the winner of ‘Tis the Season. The votes are all counted and the winner by a clear majority was Daiyu! ‘Tis the season for snowball fights indeed, and this simple shot captured the fun aspects of winter perfectly.

Congratulations, and hold your breath for the winner of the 2019 Monthly Challenge crown, coming up soon!

December Challenge Voting

Hi folks! The weather outside is frightful (unless you live where I live and Christmas is going to be a balmy 70F apparently.) But whatever your celebration is right now, ‘Tis the Season!

We had four entries this month. Please vote for your favorite. Voting will end on December 29th.

December Challenge

Hi everyone! Elessia has selected the theme for our next monthly challenge:

‘Tis the Season

What does that mean? It means whatever you think it means! Whether that’s ’tis the season for the Starlight festival, for family and friends, for wintry weather, or for sportsball if you’re Katarh…. the challenge is to take the best screenshot you can take that expresses what you think about as we head into the last days of the year.

The December Challenge will be open for submissions from today December 2nd, 2019, on up to 11:59 PM December 22nd. Voting will commence on December 23rd, and we’ll announce a winner probably on or around December 30th, depending on how much of a food coma I’m still in.

The winner of the December challenge gets their choice of minion from the Mog Station, and also the rights to choose the very first challenge theme for 2020!

Rules: All submissions must be using the FFXIV in game engine, with no mods and no post processing or edits. (That includes no Reshade.) Please include the FFXIV copyright notice someplace on the image. Any resolution or orientation is accepted within the boundaries of these rules (I feel your pain out there, fellow 3:2 ratio Surface Book users.)

To Enter: Send your image to Admin Katarh on the ENTM Discord Channel via DM. Please include the character name you want associated with the image.

October Challenge Winner

Hi everyone! We asked everyone to do their best Monster Mash for the month of October, and four spooky models rose to the challenge and gave us a good old fashioned fright with their dancing skills. But the one who danced their way into our nightmares this month was our 2018 reigning challenge queen, Ona Greene!

Spooky costume: check. Monstrous dance pose: check. Excellent use of the Posterization filter: Check.

Congrats Ona! For everyone else, stay tuned because the November challenge will go live in the next few days!

Ona Greene

October Challenge Voting

Hi folks! For the month of October, we challenged our model community to go out and do the Monster Mash. We wanted to see you partying or scaring the citizenry in your best monster costume. We had four models rise to the challenge this month, all of them doing some pretty spoopy moves out on the dance floor or the dungeons.

Ogle our oogly models, and then vote for your favorite in the Google Poll!
