March Monthly Challenge

Spring is right around the corner, and March’s color is green since everything tends to turn verdant all at once at some point. So for this month’s challenge, Elessia is asking for a celebration of the season with the theme:

Green, Gold, and Rainbows

So go forth and wear your spring best to welcome the end of winter and the beginning of the warmer seasons. Or find us a perfect landscape that encapsulates this theme in a unique way. You have until Friday, March 20th to submit a shot for this contest! Voting will end on March 27th. The winner gets a minion from the mog station, and will also get to choose the next month’s theme.

ENTM Monthly Challenges are open to members of the wider screenshot community, even if you’ve never participated in any ENTM contest before. However, you must have a Discord account and join the ENTM Discord, or otherwise be able to send your image in a direct message to Admin Katarh Mest. The usage of image mods, post processing edits, and Reshade are not allowed for ENTM contests, but you can use whatever in-game tools you want. Shots may contain player characters, non player characters, or focus entirely on the landscape if you choose to omit people. Landscape or portrait orientation accepted. Please have the FFXIV copyright notice someplace on your shot.

February Monthly Challenge Winner

For February, Kai asked our models to go out and give us their very best Warrior of Darkness. With ten models rising to the challenge and almost 40 community votes, the winner by a big margin was Elessia! Your warrior red mage showed off that casting top to demonic perfection.

Stay tuned for our March challenge, coming up soon! Also stay tuned for the announcement for auditions for Classic Cycle 12!

Fresh Faces Week 5 Winner

Hi everyone, Judge Katarh here! Normally I would have turned in my critiques, sat back and watched the votes roll in and be done…. but Host Kai got an unexpected gift to PAX East so she’s leavin’ on a jet plane right about now. Have fun and hand out those ENTM business cards!

Last week, Kai asked the models to go out and do the classic ENTM round of cosplay. Our models gave us a treat, including some never-before-seen in ENTM characters. But the judges and community agreed that one costume stood out just a little bit more, and that costume belonged to Forthyn S’yel for his amazing depiction of Geralt from The Witcher.

As Kai likes to say:

There is ONE MORE WEEK left in our first cycle of 2020. Due to PAX East, we will be delaying the votes for this for a few extra days, so stay tuned next week for our final round theme!

Also, if you considered being a model yourself (or have been one in the past) I’ll be posting an announcement for auditions for our next cycle SOON!
