Find the Glowing Avatar - 10th Anniversary Contest
Details

It has been 10 years since Avatar: The Last Airbender premiered on our screens on 21st February 2005. To commemorate the occasion, we will be holding a 10th Year ATLA Anniversary Contest.

This contest begins today on 21st February 2015 and will end on 28th February 2015 (at 11:59pm US Eastern Time). The contest is called Find the Glowing Avatar, and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to crawl through ASN to find the little pictures of a glowing Avatar and tell us what episode they come from.


Contest Rules

The rules for this contest are:
  1. You must be a member of the AvatarSpirit.Net forums. If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up for one for free.

  2. One contest entry per household to be fair to everyone.

  3. One submission of ALL images found per person. Do NOT send one email per image found; send them all together in one email when you have discovered them all.

  4. Contest submissions must be emailed to contests@avatarspirit.net with the subject line "10th Anniversary Contest"

  5. Please refrain from discussing on where you found the images, it won't be fair to those who painstakingly took the time to find them.

You have one week to find all the Glowing Avatar images. There are 15 images of Aang in the Avatar State with the word GLOW in them, hidden somewhere on ASN, in some of the pages of the ASN mainsite as well as in some posts of the ASN forums, just waiting for you to find them!


To help you start the contest, here's a Glowing Avatar ready for picking (and yes, this one counts!):



(now, what episode is that from…?)


Once you have found ALL the images and identified the episode each image comes from, please use the template below and email it together with your forum username to contests@avatarspirit.net to submit your contest entry.


Contest Entry Template:
=====
Subject: 10th Anniversary Contest

Hi, ASN! This is my contest entry.

ASN Forum Username: [for example: Icy_Ashford]

Image 1 found at URL: [for example: http://www.avatarspirit.net/contests.php?id=10]
Image 1 comes from this episode:

Image 2 found at URL:
Image 2 comes from this episode:

[and so on for all the images you found]
=====


Note that the URL should be the most direct URL possible. For example, if it's in the forums, link directly to the post that has the image, not the page or the thread. For the episode, you can tell us the episode title (e.g., "The Great Divide") or the episode number (e.g., ATLA 111 or ATLA S1E11).


Prizes

There will be three prizes for this contest. The first person to get all the answers correct or the closest answer when the deadline is up will win the first prize, second person to find them wins second prize, and third person wins the third prize.

  • First Prize: One Appa plushie and one SDCC 2009 poster featuring Aang and sky bisons in a meadow

  • Second Prize One Naga plushie and one The Legend of Korra poster* signed by Janet Varney, voice actress of Korra (* this poster will be mailed to you by Janet so you must be okay with her knowing your address)

  • Third Prize: One Library edition (hardcover) of The Search comic



So keep an eye out for Glowing Avatars! Those Glowing Aangs (and maybe other glowing avatars, who knows?) are just itching to be found.


Have fun and happy 10th anniversary to Avatar: The Last Airbender!


Winners

The winners of the contest are:

  • First place: Maivry, who found and correctly identified all 15 Glowing Aangs

  • Second place: EndlessFlame55, who found and correctly identified 14 Glowing Aangs

  • Third place: Rozerin, who found and correctly identified 14 Glowing Aangs


Honorable mentions go to Lunar_Prodigy and akiragrl, who also found and correctly identified 14 Glowing Aangs but their submissions arrived later.

Aside from the 15 Glowing Aangs, there was also a hidden bonus image of Glowing Korra, and the first person to find it was also Maivry, who won a bonus prize: a Korra elements t-shirt!
