Hullo all!

Though the dust has barely cleared from the madness that was USRC, the Ragnarok World Championship looms large on the horizon. This October, players from 11 servers will be meeting in Seoul to do battle. Our USRC champs will be voyaging across the great sea with shining swords and polished skills, but there will be events going on in and out of the game that everyone can participate in.

There are 3 contests that iRO will be competing in, running from August 4th-August 31st:

RWC theme song contest

We have been provided with sheet music and wav file versions of the song, entrants can sing the vocals or create a instrumental version or can use the existing music and must submit as a video. Live action, animation or game play edits are allowed as long as the audio uses the RWC theme.

Instrumental version WAV

Vocal version WAV

Cosplay contest

Dress up time! No cell phone camera pics!

Fan Art Event
You can have RWC (players fighting player) or general Ragnarok themes for the artwork. The top 10 will be displayed in the tournament event hall in Korea!


In each of these three events, the top 10 will be choosen and sent up to Gravity HQ. These 10 will receive a special art DVD/cosplay album/fan artbook (respectively). They will be posted up on the RWC website and will be voted on by players around the world. Out of these 100 or so entries, 3 winners will be choosen and will be showcased on the RWC website.

Let's show the Ragnaroks of the world what iRO can do! More information to follow!

Update 8/16 added files for RO character poster and logo (you can use photoshop or a free image program like GIMP to edit this.)

RWC poster psd

Since the limit for videos is 5 minutes and the song is only a little longer than 1 minute, you may want to use some RO BGM or creative commons/royalty free music such as found here.

Update 8/23/11 We just received word that the english version of the RWC website is live. It has some previous examples of winning cosplay, fanart and video entries. Check it out http://2011rwc.gnjoy...11/en/index.asp

Interesting contests. Some questions...
  • About cosplay: are photos taken on stage OK?
  • In general: how many entries per person are allowed?
I hope the fanart contest will motivate my wife to draw something about RO again after she stopped because of Gravity Europe.

Can I get more information about the Video as it is not really clear for me?

What kind of footage?
How big(size) has the Video to be?
What format?
What song/music do we have to use in that Video?
etc. etc.

I need more Infos on it before I win, eh, I mean, work on it.

So wait, are these contests between just iRO people, or are we competing against all the ROs? (If that's the case... jRO is probably gonna set the fanart standard.)

I would LOVE to do an animation video, but would I still receive only the sheet music? ._. I mean, while I can still work with the sheet music, it'll just be a lil harder on someone with no music experience, YAY~ <3

This sounds like fun, though.

Anyways, what Blubba said was a good comment. What's the format? .avi? .wmv? .mp4!? xD Length restrictions? Size for optimization? [Full Screen? 3oox6oo?]

I'm confused about the phrasing on the fanart...

Is the art allowed to be general Ragnarok themed, or does it need to be RWC themed?

Art doesn't have to be RWC themed, but I'd guess that HQ is looking for some pics with people fighting against people. I'm going to work on getting the music .wav we received into a simple youtube and find a way to host the .wav on the site for you guys.

Some other questions:
  • How to submit the entries? What about huge video and psd files?
  • For cosplay photos, are groups where the submitter is in the photo allowed (see my signature for example), given you have the consent of the other people portrayed? Or, only one single person is allowed?
Thanks a lot in advance.

We'll get some threads set up for each contest, where you can post a web-friendly version of the final product (or keep us updated with work-in-progress stuff). I think for the final submissions I will set up a dropbox or similar web storage service for you guys to submit and update

-The example image from HQ has multiple people dressed up in it, but it sounds like from a legal perspective they are asking for single cosplay shots...I'll have to get some clarification on that. I think they're worried about people submitting pictures of other people that they may not have permission from. I think this is the kind of thing that they're looking for:

Posted Image


Shot of a single person dressed in RO costume, good lighting, interesting camera angle, you get a good sense of the quality of the costume and the pose fits with the class.

Also, I need to find out what the rules are if say, you created the costume but are not the model.

For all of these, as high as is feasible-we can always edit it down to a lower resolution later.

I believe this is the first time they've had a competition of this sort. There is a RO fanart book that came out a while ago, I'll have to find the office copy.

Well, still no song.

No song, no video.

In the process of compressing and uploading.

@Oda: thanks a lot for your answer. I'll wait for the clarification on the cosplay contest so I'll know if I need to take a new shoot of my Kiehl costume at home or I can use the existing one (it's quite huge 2.5m x 3m).
