Fashion Salon Building Contest - WINNERS ANNOUNCED

FASHION SALON BUILDING CONTEST


Hey! Well, I am sorry if there is a competition like this already running, but I checked a few pages and I don't see it.

Not to be mistaken, this is a salon where you dress up people, the lot you get with Ambitions and where stylists work.

So here are the rules:

1. The salon must be CC free (Store an Dr. Pepper are okay).
2. You must list which city the salon is for.
3. Don't download a salon from the exchange and enter it. You must build it!
4. You have to upload at least 2 pictures of exterior and 3 pictures of interior.
5. All EPs and SPs are allowed, but Ambitions is needed, because fashion salons were introduced in Ambitions.

JUDGING:

Following the rules - 10 points
Exterior & Landscaping - 40 points
Interior - 40 points
Wow Factor - 10 points

TOTAL : 100 points

JUDGES:

bananaholic

I will donate 1500 sim points.

    Questions:

    Can I use my own patterns?
    Please try not to, there are lots of styles and patterens that are included with the EPs and the base game.

    Is there a specific lot size?
    No, it;s your own choice!

    If we win, can we give the prize to someone else?
    Yup, if you win you choose who the prize goes to.

    but got some questions for you:

    - what about patterns? are they ok... if to they neef to be your own, need to be made with cap...?
    - is it only bars in LN type? or will people with out that EP beable to join?
    - How does the curent prizing work...?
    is it 1 winner 200 sp (isn't importen to me, as I play for fun, but for some it is)
    - what about offering recs as part of the price aswell?
    - deadline march 5, when? and do remember time zone, best is to give it in gmt and atleast 1 US timezone. world clock, to transform time: http://sydaby.eget.net/swe/tzones.htm
    - is it ok to use a highriseshell?

    you might want to edit out sponsors are wanted from the tittle, makes it look not open....people will read that you welcome sponsors and might sponsor.

    aditional pattern question

    can I use other people patterns?

    do you need link to the original pattern?



    (and just for you)
    you are award that there is problems downloading things with patterns? the patterns might not transfere... it's a newish bug (6 month old) so maybe it is best to say no patterns or you have to redo... or ask for the links so it is easy to re ad the patterns.


    What about makeing an entry form?

    Idea:

    Username:
    Salons name:
    made for town:
    lot size:
    (posibly adress):
    Theme:
    Did you use patterns by you or others:

    I am interested! I have a week off school next week from the 10th and I think I go back on the 20th, so I will have time then!

    I was going to makeover some of the ambitions lots anyway, because I am making them fit into the Hidden Springs theme more! So I may as well start with the salon for this contest =) It will be in similar stye to a gym I recently built.

    Just one question...do you have a specific lot size in mind? or want it in a certain range (Like from 30x20 - 40x40 for example) Or can it be any size that we would like? :D

    EDIT : If we win can we give the prize to a friend or someone else? :D
