Wintersday Contest

Icy Embrace. You'll love it!

Grenths icy embrace is upon Tyria once again!

2018, it has come and gone and brought us much joy and fun. However, it's the time of year again to light candles and stoke up the fires - Wintersday is coming!

Wintersday, as it has been going on for years, is the yearly battle between Dwayna and Grenth and there is no such thing as spreading too much Wintersday fun!

Like in previous years, we're organizing a new Wintersday Contest for this goal - spreading some more Wintersday joy!


The contest, like previous years, will be about putting your characters, your favourite NPC's and monsters somewhere out in the ordinary - the real world! If you've ever wanted to go shopping with Norgu, this is your time to shine!

If you want to get some inspiration, the submissions of the last few years can be found here:

You can participate between the 16th of December 2018 until the 13th of January 2019.

The forum to submit your submission in will be launched on the 16th.

Important, this year you will only be able to see your own submission!

The contest

So, what do you have to do in order to join the contest?

The idea of this contest is that we're planning to spread some Guild Wars cheer into the real world - the contest itself is very simple: print out an image of a Guild Wars character/NPC or monster, cut it out and place them somewhere and photograph it.

For example, you could take out Prince Bokka the Magnificent on a romantic date to a restaurant or you could take a henchman on an adventure somewhere. You can find some inspiration in the entries of the last years,

Try to be as creative as you can be and you might win!

We do expect you to print and cut-out a character/NPC (or multiple ones), Photoshopping them in isn't what this contest is about and will not be accepted.

The warm touch of Dwayna!

So what can you win?

Unlike previous years, we'll be giving away more prizes this year - both small and large.

We will slowly start to reveal these soon.
