Not my own suggestions but I saw them in a different thread and thought to post them here so it is more easily viewable. Plus, I like the suggestions themselves a lot as well^^

A general WSD competition like these would be nice but how about maybe one with a theme to narrow it down a bit? Halloween is coming up (weird to suggest for me since it's not even a holiday here ^^;;) or maybe just a seasonal theme, like autumn?

I don't know if that's too general, but how about a Watership Down World contest?
Like anyone can contribute a piece art he can do the very best.
Like artwork, a piece of self written music or a short-story. And eventually with a theme (like autumn, or places like Watership Down, Efrafa, Redstone anything's possible here), like Chibiscuit already mentioned, to nail it down a bit. :)

Just my two cents.  :bigwig3

That actually sounds pretty good idea to me. Any contribution is valid: art, drawing, music, a small fan fic, etc.
I like the idea. I myself have some drawings of WD I would like to share. And others I have commanded  in commissions.  :blackberry2
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I agree as well. If the entry choice (art, writing, music, etc.) is kept wide but the theme a bit more compact, it will allow for more people to enter but still feel like it's connected somehow.

Exactly my thoughts! :3 A wider range of media can allow more people to join.
As for myself, I'm a pretty bad illustrator. Nothing above simple stick figures. :D
But composing, or writing, I'd love to contribute something. ^_^

Thanks Chipsicuit for supporting my idea. The idea Watership down world competition that is theme for a holiday or a season is Avery excellent idea.
I may be able to spare some time for another Watership down fanfic for I had to put a momentary pause in my 2nd fanfic 'The Hlessi' due to my busy school schedule. I'm sure however that I may contribute my art of literature to the Watership Down Fandom and to a world competition.;)

And not only that, but this humble but fun quiz serves to contribute to our beloved fandom. And any form of exprecion is valid
Such as a funny video of CockatielPony:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=em-qQybJH8g

So it is possible to even bring more people to this forum and increase our community a little more.

BY THE WAY, I WILL BE OUTSIDE THE CITY 5 DAYS. I may not WRITE THE FORUM.
WE SEE YOU SOON BUNNIES !!

Don't forget a photograph competitions;D

Also, I had an Idea that was inspired by another fandom who has their event like this in their fansite. Equestria Daily (My Little Pony Fandom) has something called Ponies around the world in which someone would take a picture of a figurine of one of the characters of the show anywhere in the world. Here is a link:
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2016/06/ponies-around-world-2016-submissions_26.html

This fansite also has some many more great ideas for us to expand our fandom.
Here is the Link for Equestria Daily:

Thanks for the new suggestions :)

Photography sounds interesting; I wonder how that could be integrated into a WSD contest...

Hui there,

I had a idea for a next competition.. so only as fun and make others happy. It not must give a winner..
So how's a competition about: A member draw, write, sing, compose or make a photography or whatever of a another member.
(not use this title, it's tooo long XD)

For example I draw something of Crackers or write something..
But I think it is easy when they who created something, are say yes, I do something. Not someone make nothing.

Why mirrors so ugly?

If I understand correctly, this would be an event where members make creative works as gifts to other members, and without any "voting" for a winner afterwards?  I think this would be a good idea :)
Have you considered making each day count - doing something meaningful each day - instead of letting the days and weeks and months and years fly into oblivion? --Bright Side
