The final stretch; their eyes on the line.

Only one thing is in all of their minds.

They push to the finish, they run towards the goal.

They’re going for glory, they’re going for the gold.

-KSJ

Good job, KSJ! That fiery caption just won you 50 SoBucks. :D

A new image for this contest will be uploaded in SocioTown’s FB page this Tuesday. Watch out for it! For all the avid racers in the game, see you at the race track this Saturday. :)

School’s back for most of our Socians. Let’s greet the new term with style! Show everyone what you would wear for school through this contest. Here are the rules:

  • Categories are Formal, Casual and Sporty.
  • You can send multiple entries for each category or join all three. Only one winner for each, and you can only win once too (i.e. if you win in the Sporty category, you can’t be the winner in the other two categories).
  • Be creative with your outfit. Try to mix and match and coordinate your colors/theme.
  • Here’s a handy tutorial on how to take screenshots.
  • Tell us a bit about your outfit and how you came up with it.
  • Send your entries to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com on or before September 14, 2013.
  • Winners will receive 50 SoBucks each.

The Socians in the banner are Foxrider, Berta12, Michael22, Rida and Areesh, the winners of last year’s School Uniform Fashion Contest.

Here is our BMAP winner for last Sunday’s round — Midgit! Looks like Lilly Maude is impressed with your fishing and eating skills. :lol:

We know he’ll be jumping for joy once he gets his prize of 50 SoBucks, but do you think he enjoyed his meal? Was the fish worth it for BMAP? Well, he has this to say:

the fish was very nice, although i didn’t cook it so now I’m feeling ill :(”

Oh dear, I do hope the prize will help you feel better. :)

Ready your rods and baits, BMAP-ers, cause today we’re going fishin’! Wee! :D

Done with fishing? You have a fish in your inventory already? Good. Head over to Lilly Maude right away.

Because for this round, I want you to bring me a picture of you eating any fish near Lilly Maude. Any fish will do (but be careful what you eat! :lol: )

Send your entry to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with your full SocioTown name. You can also put “BMAP Fishing” as the subject, so I’ll immediately know it’s for this contest. The first one to send an image that meets the condition above wins 50 SoBucks!

Don’t know how to take a screenshot? It’s easy! Follow these steps here.

I wanted to send a fan art for SocioTown which I made and it’s related to summer! (Yep, I know that summer contests have ended but it won’t hurt to send fan art, right? :D) In this picture Me and Travis are spending Summer Holidays on a beach and we are totally enjoying it! xD

Summer might be ending, but Mikasa is still on a vacation mood! :D

The first and second entries are only a few seconds apart. And the first one came fromĀ Flockagrego! Enjoy your 50 SoBucks. :D

I got a lot of entries from this round that is probably enough for a sleepyhead collage. Thank you all for joining and see you next Sunday, BMAP-ers!

Oh, and next round will be something about fishing, so ready your fishing skills for next week. ;)
