Default Best Farm Contest - 8th June - 30th June, 2018

Hi Farmers

Welcome to our Official June Competition!!! En Español AQUI

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

What race day event would you go to or have you seen and enjoyed? Is it an International race or a local one? Annnual race or special event? Fun or Competative? We are looking for designs that use the whole farm to represent a day at the races. There are many races around the world you could choose from, pick your favourite and impress us with your imagination!

June is also the time to celebrate Father's Day so, if you wish, you could combine the two themes. Fathers Day decorations will be in the Store and Gifts.

Whatever you decide, have fun with your creation, we are waiting with anticipation to see what you come up with!

NOTE: We have decided to stop running contests at least for the present time. This is the last one for now, but we will eventually have a competition for some future special occasions.

We would like to express our thanks and great appreciation to all designers, both novice and advanced, for your dedication and the hard work you put into all your designs and also for entering and supporting our contests throughout the years.

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 Friday, June 8th at 00:01, and will close on Saturday, June 30th 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:
  • 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:
  • If you are using animals, then you MUST Freeze your animals. The reason for this is because your animals may wander to a different part of your farm which may spoil your design. ALSO your picture MUST be an exact replica of your farm. Freezing your animals will ensure they do not move. To do this click in your Preferences, the wrench, and put a check mark to Freeze Animals. You must keep this option checked until the contest has been judged and the winners announced. If you do not do this your contest entry will be disqualified.
  • You have to be a member of the Forum.
  • 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. This means do not hide any individual item using the hide menu when you click on it and you must ALSO have a check mark for ALL options (Show ... ) in your Preferences before taking your photo.
  • Do NOT redecorate the farm you have entered into the contest until the winners have been announced.
  • 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 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.

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

It's a day for pork BBQ! What's better than a pig pickin' in the summertime? Pig races to the finish line with the mobile smoker just waiting for them! We have 2 bands, plenty of seating, a picnic area serving pulled pork and pork chops, and of course, bacon! Kid-friendly with rides and games, and other fair food too! Come ride the bull or adventure in the skies with in the hot air balloon. The sun's out so come on out!

Default Racing #6

Racing #6, I decided to make a racing track for children to race their cars on a track as if they were really racing the big ones.
