Guild Wars
Design-A-Weapon Contest
Winner Announcement

The 2007 Design-A-Weapon Contest was the most popular Guild Wars contest ever! We received well over a thousand entries in the contest, and the Dev Team agrees that the quality of the art and the concepts is simply amazing—the best fan art we've ever seen. In the coming months, the player designs selected by the judges will serve as inspiration to the Guild Wars Art Team for the creation of new weapons, shields, focus items, and more! [You can find the original contest rules page here.]

About the Judging

From the more than 1,000 entries, through multiple levels of judging, approximately 100 concepts were selected as finalist entries. Then, the entire Guild Wars Development Team judged the finalists. Eleven concepts were selected as winners, and those concepts will be the basis for new items that will be added to the game in the upcoming months. Another fourteen item concepts were selected as Honorable Mentions, and it is possible that those concepts may also become items in the future. In two instances, design concepts from multiple contestants were combined to form a single entry for judging and those combined concepts would be used as the basis for one new item, although each of those contestants will receive a prize.

More prizes! More recognition!

Because the quality of the entries was so high, we've decided to change the prize schedule to recognize even more Guild Wars fans, and to give them the credit—and the loot!—that they so richly deserve. Here is the new prize list:

Winners: Each of the eleven winners will receive their choice of a copy of Guild Wars Nightfall (standard edition) signed by the Guild Wars Development Team or a full set of Guild Wars Skill Pin Set #1 or a PvP Unlock Pack. In addition, each winner will receive a Guild Wars Nightfall t-shirt and a code for a Guild Wars character slot, if character slots are available in their location.

Honorable Mentions: Each of the seventeen honorable mention recipients will receive A Guild Wars Nightfall t-shirt and a Guild Wars character slot and Two (2) random Guild Wars Skill Pins

Finalists: Each of the seventy-nine Finalists will receive two random Guild Wars Skill Pins.
