Some of you might have been waiting for it: Ankama's avatar creation contest is back! Grab your weapons – whether it's your sharpened crayons or your shiny graphics tablet – put on your best war paint, and… chaaaaarge!

The last time this happened, it caused a real tidal wave (of creativity).

  • Class Gallery: 90 avatars (5 per class)
  • Stasis Gallery: 24 avatars
  • Hooypyon Gallery: 27 avatars
  • Papetona Gallery: 35 avatars
  • Meme Gallery: 16 avatars
  • Total: 192 new avatars!

Will you manage to push your own boundaries?

Will you be able to find that creative flame and that extra bit of soul that will make you one of the talented creators of this contest?

If not, then turn to the minor god Ninefi, the meridia of creativity!

Sometimes it's as simple as picking up a pen and letting it flow naturally across a blank page; other times, it's as simple as taking a deep breath with your eyes closed (not for too long, or you might just fall asleep); and just occasionally, it's as simple as throwing a whole can of paint at a blank canvas.

You're right. Daubs are created in pretty much the same way.

So? What does it matter? At least you'll have enjoyed yourself!

But… What About the Contest?

From Saturday, March 18 until Friday, March 31 at 4:00 PM (Paris time), you can enter a contest to create Ankama avatars under the auspices of the Meridia of Creativity, Ninefi!

  • Theme: "Bestiary of the World of Twelve in the Wakfu Era";

  • Entries can only be submitted on the forums. You can post as many avatars as you like, but all together in a single post;
  • Posts that are edited after the end of the contest will not be considered;

Entries will be judged by our jury of team members on the following criteria:

  • Adherence to the theme of "Bestiary of the World of Twelve in the Wakfu Era";
  • Visual appeal of the creation;
