The event to support Elicio Ember, Filling the Cauldron, is in its final weekend now, and we’ve already raised a wonderful total of over £451,000 – but there is still a lot going on! Including shopping in the Market, bidding in the silent auctions, looking at the items listed for the Live Auctions … and coming tio some of the fantastic music, dance and story telling events that you’ll see listed on the schedule.
For example, you can still vote in the Garden Competition and really, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to visit the gardens! Nine talented Second Life residents have created gardens in salute to Elicio, using many of the fantastic plants and landscaping elements he has created. In some of the gardens there are places to sit and relax – and you’ll also find other seating areas where you can sit and contemplate …
Because this is a contest, and you can play a part in deciding the outcome!
We’re asking YOU to vote for the garden you most appreciate based on the following criteria:
- Overall look and aesthetic
- Use of Elicio’s creations
- How much you enjoyed exploring each of them.
When you have decided, visit the voting form and use it tell us which of the gardens speaks to you the most. All the popular votes will be combined with votes from the judging panel to select three Gardens.
And then, in the finale, the one winning garden will be selected as the overall winner, by our Guest of Honour – Elicio Ember.
The winner will win the chance to build their garden as a special exhibit at the Second Life Home and Garden Expo, where it will be featured on the central region!
Then there’s the Photo Contest, which comes complete with some very special prizes.
Elicio’s store, Cerridwen’s Cauldron, offers a marvellous, magical setting both in the air and on the ground. We asked competitors to visit Cerridwen’s Cauldron and capture some of that magic. It doesn’t matter if they selected a part of the skyborne store or the ground-level landscape – they simply had to capture all or part of the region in a way that brings out its beauty and magic.
In return, we’re offering the following prizes:
- 3rd place: items from Cerridwen’s Cauldron worth up to L$750
- 2nd place: items from Cerridwen’s Cauldron worth up to L$1,000
- 1st place: an original piece of real world art by Elicio himself, delivered to you in-world and to your home.
Entries are now closed – but it’s YOUR turn to visit the Flickr group and decide which of the entries you like best!
Mark the ones you like with a “Fave” star. Your faves will be combined with the votes from the judging panel and, like the Garden Contest, will be announced at 3pm SLT on Sunday 9th April at the Entertainment Center on Holly Kai.
