Event Description

Every year, we host a photo contest and every year, they get better and better! As ever, the contest is about capturing the spirit of NeoVictoria's roleplay for a 2016 calendar. The only criteria are:

1. The image must be related to our storyworld; it's fine to use avatar characters and props, or to only shoot landscapes. If you're unfamiliar with the Neo'verse, please visit our public website at

2. Using photo-enhancing software like Photoshop or GIMP is permitted; please don't add any words or borders to the image.

3. The shot must be captured on the land level of the Machinima SIM or the NeoVictoria SIM in Second Life and have been taken during the contest period.

To take part in the competition:

~ Visit the NeoVictoria estate in Second Life between 1 December and 31 December 2015 to take your images; here’s the SLUrl:

~ Join the "The NeoVictoria Project" group on Koinup ( Koinup is a FREE social network based on user-generated content, with a focus on virtual worlds.

~ Add your images to our Kionup pool by 31 December 2015, limit of two (2) per avatar. Here's the direct link:

Include the following:

1) Your Second Life avatar name. [This is the default avatar name you created your SL account with, not its display name.]

2) The SIM name where the photo was taken (NeoVictoria or Machinima).

3) The month of the year you think suits the photo best, for example: “Asil Ares presents The Cathedral Bell Tower in NeoVictoria SIM for January”.


Depending on the volume of pictures received, the first round of judging will be by the NeoVictoria community via the Internet. We’ll present the top 15 images in-world for a final vote to determine the twelve winners. The in-world vote will be open to all Second Life avatars whose players are 18+ in real life. In-world voting will be from 8 January through 14 January and will be located in the NeoVictoria SkyClub. Winners will be announced on 21 January at a special party in the NeoLondon SkyClub, time TBA.

IMPORTANT: While the NeoVictoria estate is identified as an adult SIM to comply with Linden Lab's ToS, we are not a sex-SIM. Any unseemly images will be removed from the contest without warning as deemed appropriate by the judges or the Kionup admins.

 Thank you so much for all of your work! Since I don't RP, this was my first time at ground level. I will definately recommend your sim to others. I had a lot of fun doing this! Good luck and congrats to everyone!
