This contest is open to adults and children alike.  It will be awarded via age groups: under 6; under 10; under 14; under 20; and adult.  I am looking for a character of your own creation or a design based on your favourite troll legend. (It must be a legend over 100 years old).  Mountains must figure into the shape or clothing.  You can give your troll a name.  Please be sure to include its back story and a little bit about yourself and why you chose what features to include.

Contest submission must include: three drawings on 8×11 inch paper of what you think would make a great Mountain Troll; a separate page with brief description of the Mountain Troll; another page with a brief description of you, the artist.  You must also give your permission for a designer to take your work of art and transform it into a 3 Dimensional Form.

Now, this is where it gets exciting!  As your art is put up on the websites, another contest is ongoing for designers to choose from the entrants’ drawings to base a Mountain Troll costume upon.  They may not necessarily choose the drawings with the highest votes…because they will be look for practicality in transforming your idea into physical form and some ideas are wonderful on paper but just not practical design-wise.

Submissions will be put on this website for viewers/readers to vote upon.  They will also be displayed on the Aviking By Hoof Facebook Page.  Contest is open without prejudice as of January 13th, 2018 to March 16th, 2018.  Votes will be counted on March 17th and winners will be announced on March18th, 2018 for that division of the contest.  The drawings chosen by the designers will be announced on March 19th.

Grand Prize: MUMMERS vs MOUNTAIN TROLLS weekend LARP admission July 14th/15th (rental of costume choice and weapon included); an award and reserved seating at the Mountain Troll Stroll Fashion Show on July 17th; VIP access to all Troll Games events; your art professionally displayed in one of Western Newfoundland’s galleries. $1336.27 value
