Paper Mario: Sticker Star Diorama Contest
Nintendo today announced a new contest to celebrate the upcoming November 11th launch of Paper Mario: Sticker Star for Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo is inviting Mario fans to create colourful dioramas that depict scenes from the new game. Participants in the contest will be eligible to win one of five prize packages that include a Nintendo 3DS XL, a copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, a gift certificate redeemable in the Nintendo eShop and a handmade papercraft trophy.
Participants in the diorama contest can view pictures of characters and levels from Paper Mario: Sticker Star at a special application integrated into the Nintendo 3DS page on Facebook and select which scenes they want to use as the inspiration for their diorama. Entrants can submit photos or videos of their work at http://papermario.nintendo.com/facebook now through November 7th.
To get people started, Nintendo and Los Angeles-based production company iam8bit have created a special instructional video with crafting tips and suggestions. The video can be viewed at http://papermario.nintendo.com/facebook.
The contest is open to Canadian residents 13 years old and older (excluding Quebec). Entries will be judged on three criteria: Spirit (how well entries demonstrate a love for the Paper Mario franchise), Creativity (how well entries demonstrate creativity) and Quality (the overall artistic quality of the diorama as showcased in the submitted photo or video). Complete contest rules and eligibility requirements can be found at http://papermario.nintendo.com/facebook.
