Yaaay polling time, lol. Going to try and keep this short and simple. We have 2 polls, so please make sure to vote in both. Or you can comment instead, but please let me know if you voted or not (that way the numbers aren’t skewed).
First, do you guys want more comps or are the current numbers alright? I'm perfectly happy to run several of mine at once, I'm just not sure if that's what anyone wants as I know a few of you are busy as is. Let me know in the poll, and if there’s a request for more comps I'll open a variety. I left the Results viewable by everyone so other hosts can view it and make decisions.
Second, which competition of mine would you like to compete in next? I kept the poll answers tidy this time, but if you want descriptions of the competitions please look under the spoiler or under the poll. Please select as many as you want when voting. I want to know what everyone is interested in. Even if it’s a mild interest and not a strong one, please select it anyways. I need to know which ideas are preferred out of everything listed. And before anyone asks, I will be running all of these competitions at some point so please don’t skip voting because you think your opinion won’t matter. Trust me, your opinion does matter!
Also, I apologize for the lack of traditional modeling comps in the list (and by traditional, I mean editorial and high fashion competitions). There are a few, like Locks, that can be considered traditional but nothing I have is entirely focused on traditional because each competition has its own spin. I plan on running some of those later, but I wanted to get these done first as they’ve been on my to do list for a while now.
Back to the Basics Cycle 2 – An in-game only, and base game friendly, competition that has a mix of modeling and candid photography assignments. There is little to no editing except for what I list in the rules (filters, beauty modifications, and corrections). The goal is to encourage you to work on your basics, such as camerawork, lighting, building, etc. and encourage more people to use in-game photos when competing. You can see Cycle 1 here. This is beginner friendly and a cumulative competition with Final 3 eliminations.
Muse Cycle 3 – A comp for people who enjoy all types of music, and depending the cycle, specific genres/eras! Each assignment you will be given a song to interpret and make an edit for, based on what you think is happening in the song or what the song is talking about, or what you feel. The assignments are open ended with no requirements, and I will be choosing songs that are either straight forward in meaning, or confusing. There is no fashion or modeling focus, just your creative interpretations. Cycle 3 has a nature theme. You can see Cycle 1 here and Cycle 2 here. This is beginner friendly and a cumulative competition with no eliminations.
Game On! – Based on games and gaming themes/scenarios, no focus on fashion/modeling. You do not have to play other games to join! You can pick/make a race and class/job for your applications, then throughout the comp you will model your character in different scenarios. Scenarios can include NPC interactions, character development, fight scenes, specific quests types or themes, exploration and adventure, etc. Might involve some optional roleplaying/storytelling, depending on the assignment. This is a cumulative competition with no eliminations, so winners are determined by highest total (which is similar to a leveling system). Bonus points and other interesting game systems are involved to help people catch up or slow down.
The Selection – Based on the book series! Quote: "The Selection is a competition between thirty-five girls called the Selected who compete to marry the prince and become the Princess of Illéa." (We will have less than 35 girls though, don’t worry!) Think of the book/competition as a slight dystopian version of The Bachelor but with princes/princesses, politics, and mild Miss Universe/World for glamour and fashion. Assignments will be varied and based on stuff from the books (no spoilers though), fanbase, or whatever I come up with. This includes themes such as: problems occurring (such as dealing with a press attack, etc.), romance focus (dates, imagined futures, etc.), handling political issues, and prepping to be the next Queen/King. Will be slightly RP based, but mainly on the judge/host side unless contestants choose to join in. This is a cumulative competition with eliminations every few rounds to simulate the Prince eliminating some girls. (And yes, a Princess version will be a future cycle!)
Pose – Based on the show and the ball culture that inspired it, but you don’t need to have watched the show, or researched ball culture, to enjoy this competition! The competition has a high focus on fashion and creativity with poses (like the name), with modeling coming second. Editing is not a large focus either, but still needs to be clean. And backgrounds will be provided so everyone focuses on CC shopping instead of hunting for backgrounds. Contestants will be split into Houses, and each House will be competing against each other for first place. Each House is run by a “Mother” or “Father” who will help with certain assignment decisions, but the role is smaller than it sounds so please don’t worry. This is beginner friendly and will be a cumulative competition with no eliminations since it is based on group effort, and the competition will be short to help prevent drop outs (around 6 rounds or less).
Locks – (Title is still undecided.) This is a headshot competition that focuses on drawing your own hair styles. It has two groups, beginners and advanced, to make the competition fair and to allow everyone to participate on their own level. Tutorials will be linked for those that are new to drawing (including tutorials that don’t need a tablet!) and assignments will start simple and get progressively harder as the competition goes on. This is beginner friendly (since it’s a learning comp and has groups) and a cumulative competition with Final 3 eliminations for each group.
Body Art – This competition is slightly based on the show Face Off and the body painting show, Skin Wars. This competition encourages drawing and manipulating prints/textures (for those that can't draw) to create the look you need. You will be using very little CC/game material, so costumes will be rare or drawn on the skin (since it's body painting). Props/backgrounds will usually be the only thing from the game or Google, and premade makeup won't be allowed unless it's small (like eyeshadow or eye decorations). This is a cumulative competition with Final 3 eliminations.
Who Wore It Better? – This is a competition about dressing your model in game pack clothing and seeing who did better at wearing and flaunting it. Yes, I said game packs! For the first cycle we will be focusing on Base Game clothing. Each round I will choose a piece of clothing that is the focus of your outfit. You will then design an outfit around that piece of clothing and come up with a theme. You are allowed to use other game packs when dressing your model and you can’t use CC for the clothes and shoes, but the makeup, hair, accessories, etc. can be CC. You can also recolor or find recolors of outfits (recolors won't be considered CC). You will then present your clothing in a creative way, using in-game backgrounds or photos only. This is beginner friendly and a competition with eliminations.
Outrageous Modeling – This is meant to be a comedy-based fashion competition, where you place your models in weird, awkward, or humorous situations! This includes themes like tripping during a photoshoot, food fights while trying to walk the catwalk, makeup/hair/clothes disasters, and possibly sabotage! The goal is to make the photo as funny as possible instead of our usual “I’m a serious model” competitions. This is a competition with eliminations.
American Horror Story – This competition will have different themes each cycle, but each one will revolve around AHS, which is now on its 8th season (wondering if we’ll reach 10)! Themes can include recreating the poster images, representing or creating your own characters, etc. Either way, this competition is focused on representing the horror and weirdness that is common in the show. This is a competition with eliminations.
Game of Thrones – A more optional roleplaying/storytelling based competition where models create a character set in the GoT universe and must work their way through scenarios (aka the assignments/challenges) to win the iron throne/crown! This will be like the show, so it will be intense and not exactly kid friendly, but I will try to keep some assignments toned down. To avoid potential spoilers for some people, the universe and scenarios will mainly be focused on your character and the characters of the other models, with possibly a few guest appearances of characters from the actual show. As you can guess this is an elimination competition, lol.

If you're looking for a beginner comp, to try your skills as a sims editor, or just to get feedback on your edits, look no further than Boho N Chic!
The season will be super short, as they only have 6 challenges each, with at least 6 days of deadline for them. It is also BG compatible, as you don't need to have any packs to contest! There won't be any copying of ideas either, as ALL challenges will be DM'd to the host.
The rules are simple, just be nice and play fair! ^^
Near the end of the reign of Miss Vale a stranger went up to the castle, begging for a place to stay for the night. Vale knew straight away he was different but was happy to lend a hand. She took him into the guest bedroom and asked about his life, after all they didn’t look like someone from around here. He claimed that he couldn’t remember and apologised before falling asleep. Vale woke up to find that the stranger had left. He left a letter that said thank you and hoped that they would see Vale again. Signed, Jordan Asher
During a meeting with parliament, the doors burst open with Jordan Asher and his guards behind him. He threatened Vale to abdicate the throne to the human race. Vale knew she could fight him back, but offered Jordan that she would allow humans a spot in the parliament as she tried to reason with him. Jordan wanted a battle between the best humans from his side and the best vampires from Vale’s side, to see who would be the new ruler of the Afterlife.
The challenges this season go along with each other. Your journey to represent your life state in the battle for the Afterlife’s throne. Choose your own adventure and who knows, your sim might be the next leader of the Afterlife!
Humans vs Vampires
Canine Teeth vs Fangs
The Living vs The Dead
Let the battle begin.
Does your Princess long for more? Does she want to prove herself to the kingdom? Is she just ready for some fun? Show us that your princess is the Fairest Of Them All! Princesses can be Human, Alien, Mermaids, part-Unicorns, Vampires, Fairy, part-dragon, or anything your heart desires! It's entirely up to you! Each person may also enter up to 3 Princesses.

Fairest Of Them All Season 4 // by Sprinkle_Sims & Others // Twitter/Discord // Recurring // Sims 4 only // Sign-ups Closed
This season is all about Princesses and Villains as we believe it was time to change things up and allow Villains the chance to compete for the title of the Fairest of Them All. For season 4 you may enter up to two sims, either both princesses, both Villains, one of each, or you may wish to just enter one sim which is totally ok! As we have done in previous seasons we are allowing supernaturals etc. For example you may wish for your sim to be a witch, fairy, vampire, mermaid, half dragon, spider, your sim may have powers, or you may wish to enter a sim with no such things. It's entirely up to you!!!
Fresh Faces Season 4 // by themelonic (Jezi) // Discord // Recurring // Sims 4 only // Sign-ups Closed
ANY gender/species in SIMS 4 can be enter --- so if you want to enter a pet you can
It would be tricky but... in theory could work
So Fresh Faces you play as your model or manager -- all assignments (4 total -- 1 x week -- some have multiple photos) get dmed and are not released on here until close of the assignment, at which a panel of 5 vote on assignment 1, 4 on assignment 2, 4 on assignment 3, and 3 on assignment 4. At some point in the contest there will be a secret vote to sabotage another contestant -- if they win they do not have to do the next challenge.
To qualify for the Cover assignment (5) you have to be voted to be published at least 1x during the contest.
we give general feedback on assignments and tips on what to work on if you are struggiling
