Default Best Farm Contest - 8th January - 31st January, 2017

Hi Farmers!

Welcome to our Official January Competition!!

This month's theme is "Barnyards", so post here your fabulous farms and get the chance to win some Farm Cash!!!

This month's theme is Barnyards. We would like to see what a barnyard looks like in your part of the world. Try to use a barnyard buildings that look like those in your part of the world. Either modern or old, new or rundown, however you see them. There are 28 Barns in the store, some for Farm Cash but most for coins at different levels. There are also many other items that can be used as part of a barnyard. A Barnyard may typically consist of a farmhouse, barn, animal buildings, a yard, farming vehicles, an area for the animals and or items that may be kept in barns.

Your Barnyard must be the main focus of your farm and NOT a small portion.

Picture designers you may use any decorations to create your own Barn or barnyard buildings, but this must be part of a barnyard and not just a picture of a barnyard building.

Those of you using animals as part of your design. Please NOTE that animals on show slow down the loading of the farm. For this theme we suggest that you do NOT be tempted to place more than 50 animals. If you are using them please also make sure that in your game settings you have a check mark in the box for "Freeze Animals" so that your animals do not wander around which may spoil your design.

Important Notice for ALL who enter, especially Late Entries:

If you have never entered before or are unsure if you will be able to post correctly, please do not leave entering the contest until the last day. We are here to help, but it takes time to communicate with you via Private Messages and you need to be logged onto the forum to recieve them in order for us to be able to help you before the contest closes. We often need to help many members and it may not be possible to correct all entries in time, if they are entered on the last day.

Please double check your contest entry BEFORE you leave the forum. If it is obvious that something is missing from your entry, like the picture of your farm or your farm link then you are going to need help to fix it. If you see your entry does not look right please do post a request for help in the contest help thread and regularly check the forum for any replies to your request for help or any Private Messages sent to you.

Any entries that are not posted correctly by the time the contest closes will not be entered into the competition!

Thank you for your co-operation

Prizes are as follows, divided into 2 Categories:


1st Prize - 120 Farm Cash
2nd Prize - 75 Farm Cash
3rd Prize - 50 Farm Cash


1st Prize - 120 Farm Cash
2nd Prize - 75 Farm Cash
3rd Prize - 50 Farm Cash

Please, do not enter your farm without reading this ENTIRE post. Thanks!

The competition will begin on Sunday, January 8th at midnight, and will close on Tuesday, January 31st at midnight. The winners will be announced a few days later after the closing, depending on how many entries there are, as every entry has to be checked.

Note: All times are in GMT

Contest Guidelines:
  • Show us your fabulous designs for Barnyards!!
  • You can use any items from the Store, Gifts or your Storage.
  • You can choose between a "picture farm" or a traditional design.
  • You will be able to harvest any crops, trees etc. Crops must be in place at the close of the competition, and can be any crop, but they either must be growing or fully grown and not wasted. This also applies to trees and flowers. You can chop/harvest trees and flowers, but they will need to be at full growth, by the time the competition closes.

Contest Rules:
  • You have to be a member of the Forum.
  • Your animals, if used, must be frozen. Put a check mark for "Freeze Animals" in your preferences.
  • Your farm can be any size.
  • Your entry needs to be a picture of your farm. Do not post a picture on behalf of someone else.
  • One farm entry per contestant. Do not start another forum account to enter another farm.
  • Be sure you are entering the correct farm and picture for your entry as you may not change your mind once entered. You cant add/delete any items on your farms once you posted your photo into the contest. NOTICE: If new items are released AFTER you have entered you are not allowed to make additions to your entry, so please be sure you are done.
  • Your farm photo must be an exact replica of your farm. Do not hide ANYTHING to take your photo.
  • Do NOT redecorate the farm you have entered into the contest until the winners have been announced. The reason for this is because we use the time up until the winners are posted to visit your farms to judge them. If a farm is already being redecorated when we visit, it can not be judged!
  • You have to provide the following information: A photo of the farm that you wish to enter. The link to the farm you are entering. The name that you have given that farm and the farm number

Links to help you:

How do I post a picture for the Contest? Please remember, you must use the Small size while taking your photo as the Regular and Large sizes are too big for the forum. If you choose the wrong size, then we will delete your post and will send you a private message asking you to take a new photo using the right size. NOTICE: Your farm photo MUST be set to Public and remain that way till the winners are announced or we will not be able to help you if your entry needs fixing. To set the photo to Public, please open your Farm town album, and click in your photo. You will see the photo and on the right you will see your name and the date, besides the date you can see who are able to see that photo. Click there and set it to Public.
ALSO, remember to remove the check mark if you have set that farm as PRIVATE, so we can visit it.

Linking your farm to the Forum Please remember we need the link to the farm you are entering.

Contest Help Please post here if you have any questions or requests for help.

Suggestions for the monthly Best Farm contest If your idea is chosen you will win a prize of 15 Farm cash!

The judges are as follows:

Moderators: Taz D, marymarcel, Tiger Laybourne, KnightRider and crafty chris.
Helpers: LazyMare

Thank you for sharing your farms and GOOD LUCK!!!
