We’ve hit a lull between the excitement of BLOXtober and the upcoming holiday and winter festivities. Rather than let you catch your breath, we’re taking this opportunity to launch a short fan art contest! We held a similar contest last spring and received plenty of great submissions, and we’re excited to see (and share) a fresh round of fantastic ROBLOX art.Continue reading
This is it, folks: your last opportunity to enter your BLOXcon-themed place or game in the Virtual BLOXcon Game Contest. Whether you’ve got a work in progress or are going to challenge yourself to build something from scratch in roughly 32 hours, it’s time to get down to business. The submission period ends promptly on Sunday, September 8th at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.Continue reading
Last week, we kicked off a Virtual BLOXcon Game Contest, giving you the opportunity to have your BLOXcon-themed game featured at the big event on Saturday, September 21st. We know making a game and building a place are both time-consuming processes, so take this as a friendly reminder that the contest deadline is nine days away (technically, Sunday, September 8th at 11:59 p.m. PT).
In case you missed the news last week, here’s how the contest works.Continue reading
As you probably know by now, we’re hosting a Virtual BLOXcon less than one month from today. Roughly 0.1% of ROBLOX’s population could actually attend one of this summer’s in-person BLOXcons, so this online event will give everyone a chance to experience some of the magic. The following is a tentative overview of what the Virtual BLOXcon will offer — including some of your creations.Continue reading
With the excitement of the submission and voting periods now in the books, we have selected — with public opinion as a significant factor — the nominees for each category of the ROBLOX International Film Festival. As promised, we will be announcing the actual winners for each category at the upcoming BLOXcon Chicago, London and New York City. Winners will have their films screened in front of a live BLOXcon audience and highlighted on the ROBLOX YouTube channel, and receive a coveted BLOXY Award!
We don’t want to kill the suspense and anticipation of the actual announcements, so we’re not going to show the nominees for every category. However, we do have a bundle of potential winners for the popular machinima/short film and trailer categories to share. All nominees are listed in a random order. Grab a snack and settle in for some great works of ROBLOX cinema!Continue reading
In the ROBLOXian spirit of creativity and participation, we decided not to make our own posters for the fast-approaching BLOXcon, but leave it in the hands of our community. We received almost 300 (requirement-meeting) posters over the course of a 10-day submission period, and today are announcing the winners and runners up for each BLOXcon — Chicago, London and New York City. Congratulations in advance to all the winners and a big, blocky thank you to everyone who participated in the competition.
As promised, all three winners will receive three fantastic prizes: distribution of their printed poster to all BLOXcon attendees, a signed copy from the ROBLOX admins, and an exclusive virtual item (details forthcoming). And, because of the quality of the submissions, we’ll also give the virtual exclusive to the two runners up for each category.Continue reading
Attention, directors and designers of ROBLOXia: we have arrived at the final weekend for submitting entries to the ROBLOX International Film Festival and the BLOXcon Poster Contest! Both contests close on Monday, June 3rd at 11:59 p.m. PT – if you’re planning to enter, now is the time to get creating. Polish what you’ve already started, or set aside some time to start something from scratch. It’s not too late.
ROBLOX International Film Festival
The Film Festival has been open to submissions for just under a month. While we’re seeking films within five categories, we have still received very few speed-building showcases and city-themed films. If you want to get noticed, go for one of those categories.Continue reading
