IMPORTANT UPDATE: This is the old thread for signups for the contest from March 2021. We have since created a new thread to help promote the newest version of the contest for October and November 2021!
Looking to discuss the contest or ask questions? Head over to the LBP Connected Discussion thread!
To celebrate the return of the LittleBigPlanet servers (which will be coming back very soon), the LBP Union is hosting a creative contest! LBP Reconnected recognizes participating creators in three categories:
Level: a playable level or game.
Music: create something fancy with the music sequencer!
Creation: make anything! An object, an outfit, a vehicle, some fancy logic, or a combination of things!
The deadline to publish your level and enter the contest has been postponed! We plan to announce a new deadline once the servers are officially declared to be back online by the LBP team. We'd like to allow two weeks of time for creators to finalize and publish their works, and then a week of judging after this to determine the winners.
How to Enter
To enter the LBP Reconnected contest, follow these directions,
Publish your entry in a new level.
In the level title, include the phrase "#LBPReconnected"
Make a post in this thread if you are interested in participating! When your entry is finished, you can edit your entry post accordingly!
To enter the contest or let us know that you're interested, copy and paste the template below into your reply and edit the values:
PSN Name: [Type your PSN name here. This is important to help us find your submission] Game: [Choose LBP1, LBP2, or LBP3] Category: [Choose Level, Music, or Creation] Name of Entry: [Type the title of your entry, do not include #LBPReconnected here, but remember to add it in game to make your submission count!] Description: [Provide a brief description of your entry. This is where you can post photos of your creation as well!]
Here's a couple rules and guidelines for LBP Reconnected:
This contest is currently for LBP1, LBP2, and LBP3 only since not many of the people judging will have access to LBP Vita. If you can provide a video or some other accessible medium to view your creation, we might be able to make an exception!
Please make sure that your entry does not violate the LittleBigPlanet EULA or the LBP Union Code of Conduct.
If you are working as a team, the person that publishes the level is the one that will get the prize if that entry wins. We'd love to do group contests in the future, so stay tuned!
After the due date, please do not republish your level.
We will announce one winner for each category. All winners will receive a trophy: the Reconnected Crown, in-game! You'll also receive a Reconnected badge on our forum that's displayed next to your username and a special role on our Discord server! You'll also get a shoutout and spotlight on our website and on social media.
If you don't have LBP3, we can get you the Crown on LBP1 or LBP2 via the photo import glitch!
Good luck, everyone! We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Remember, if you'd like to ask questions or discuss the contest, please head over to the LBP Reconnected Discussion thread.
