Community Run Contests for March:

Welcome to the Forza Motorsport 5 Community Run Contests Sponsorship signup thread!

Do you have a contest that you would like to hold and want some cool stuff to give away make it more exciting?

Do you not know how to go about setting up a contest?

This is the thread for you.

We recognize that some of the fun of the forums was being able to create your own community contests. We want you to be able to continue with this vital activity on the forums, so we are going to provide some help.

This Turn 10 sponsorship opportunity may be altered, ended or postponed for any reason at any time. Good behavior and fairness among all participants is expected.

Sign up Rules:

1. Sign up with your Gamertag.
2. Include a link to your contest thread.
3. The contest must begin and end in the same calendar month as stated in the title of the contest thread. If it is a long contest, each segment must end within a calendar month. The 25th is the end of the month so we have time to close out the contest and begin again for the next month.
4. Make a case for why your contest should be sponsored, in your post. We want a few lines about why your contest should be sponsored.
5. It is your responsibility to get winners to us by the 25th of the current month, this is a strict end date, sponsorship is forfeited if winners are submitted beyond the 25th.
6. You may have up to three winners listed for your contest. (The person hosting the contest can’t be one of the winners – you are already getting a prize for being a host.)
7. Prizes will vary each month and will be chosen by the Turn 10 Community Team.
8. Contest hosts will automatically receive the contest prize for their efforts in hosting a contest. You may have up to 3 hosts that receive prizes for hosting any one contest.
9. If your contest does not follow these rules it will be disqualified.
10. By signing up in this thread, you are not guaranteed to get your contest sponsored.
11. We suggest that you do not say you are sponsored for prizes until you know you are sponsored.
12. The Turn 10 community team will inform contest hosts of our sponsorship. All decisions of sponsorship are made by the Turn 10 community team.
13. The Turn 10 Community team is offering prizes as sponsorship. The running of the contest is solely up to the host. (Turn 10 will not be responsible for anything beyond providing prizes to sponsored community contests. If a community contest is selected for sponsorship, running the contest, decisions about winners, submitting winners to the Turn 10 Community Team, and any other details associated with these community contests are the sole responsibility of the community hosts of the contest. These are contests put on by forum members and are the responsibility of said forum members.)
14. You may only sign up to host one Turn 10 sponsored contest per month.
15. To gift winners, hosts must submit the winning Gamertags (three maximum). For winners to be featured in game, the host must also submit the name of the file that won with a brief description whether it is a tune, a paint or a photo. (Featuring is not guaranteed, but the Community Team will try to feature some of the winners of community run contests.)

Prizes this month for your top three winners and the host(s) of the contest:
• Winners may get their item featured for a week as a Turn10 select item (if it is a tune or paint contest and is something that can be featured. Featuring is at the discretion of the Turn 10 Community Team and not guaranteed).

• 100,000 credits to each winner and each host(s)

• Your contest may also get a mention in a WIR news article.

Eligible Contest Types:

1. Paint Contest – either Race Livery or Fantasy Livery
2. Tuning Contests
3. Photography Contests
4. Layer Groups contest
5. Race Contests
6. Drift Contests
7. Something else? Make your argument a good one, and maybe you will convince the Community Team to sponsor it.

Example Contest Submission Post:
Host GT: LV T10
Contest Reasoning: I want my contest to be considered because….
Contest Details: A paint contest with this theme
Contest Dates: (The contest must begin and end in the same calendar month as stated in the title of the contest thread, and before the 25th of the month.) i.e. March 4th to March 18th.

Reason why to be sponsored: I would like to be sponsored because I am very passionate about giving back to a community that has given so much to be for as long as I have been playing Forza and I feel it would be selfish of me to not at least try my best to make this game as much fun as possible for all those playing it. I only want to see those in the game having as much fun as I do. And I am willing to do the work it take to come up with contests every month if that is what it take for me to give back and let the community enjoy in all the things that makes this the greatest racing simulator out there. Thank you for allowing me to at least try.

host: LazarusJackson
contest: TMOAP 2 - Round 2: Grand Prix of Titans
dates: [entries]: 3/14 - 3/23; [voting]: 3/24 - 3/28
link: http://forums.forzamotorsport.n...-UNDER-CONSTRUCTION.aspx

reason: to help celebrate the release of titanfall, this month's round of TMOAP will focus on the biggest vehicles in the forza franchise: trucks, suvs and vans. TMOAP is a monthly contest, spanning 10 months, open to shots from fm4, fm5, and fh, and scored much like a racing series. each month, the top ten winners receive a set amount of championship points, which are totaled at the end of the competition. overall winners are announced. there is much rejoicing.

we're only into the second round, so this still has a ways to go.

First, I apologize if this post is inappropriate here. I have an idea for a contest and have searched for a way to contact Turn10 directly but the email listed suggests it is not the best option for communication. I would like if possible to ask a few questions but, off the board as I dont want to give away details of the contest before I know it can be done in this version of Forza. Is there someone I can PM or communicate with directly on this subject? It may lead to a new mode in this Forza or the next. Perhaps Turn10 has already thought of this or may be working on it. Could possibly take the next Forza to a new level of car enthusiast and racing excitement.
FM1 = New XBox / FM2 = New XBox 360 / FM5 = New XBox One
