    [GUIDE] How To Get Votes In The Beauty Contest

    The Beauty Contest, or BC, is one of the many competitions the site has. While it may look unappealing to you at first, it's actually a very fun, addictive, and active part of the game. Many people draw their pets weekly, and enter them for everyone to see (and vote).
    However, the competition, while fun, might be fierce too. The Art Chat might look intimidating to newcomers. And the process of advertising and getting votes could be confusing to some.
    This is why I decided to make this guide, which will help you do exactly what the title says:


    This guide will be useful if you

    • Are new to the Art Chat (or AC) and want to know the ins and outs of it
    • Want to get into the BC, but don't know what to do or how to do it
    • Want to advertise harder, better, faster, stronger
    • Entered a hard category, and want to secure a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place
    • Entered a normal or easy category, but want to secure that 1st place anyway
    • Are aiming for a high place overall

    All in all, this guide will help you maximize your chances of winning. Even if you just entered to get the avatar. Let's begin.




    ELSEWHERE

    [/SPOILER]

    That's it! I hope this guide helps you get tons and tons of votes. The BC is a very fun site feature, and if you know how to do it, it can be even more fun! If you have any suggestions on how to improve this guide, please let me know! And if you have any questions about the BC, you can post them here and we all can answer them, either on this thread, or by PM.

    Cheers!

    I like your guide very much. It's really informative and complete. I'm not a BC pro, but I guess all info can be found within it. +rep

    Wow thanks! I actually feel like I could try entering for once. I just began drawing my pets and am no where near to par where most bc winners are but this gives me a bit of confidence. Great guide! Will take into account your suggestions

    Nice guide!
    It would be nice to add that if your pet wins the contest, they are gold-banned for 1 month (you can't enter BC on the next month), but you can enter your other pets
    Also, http://www.neopets.com/~Colress has a popularity chart showing how many entries each species get every week

    Thanks! I'll make sure to add that later, as well as other important stuff.

    The popularity chart was already linked on the guide!

    Some people will vote for you even if you aren't the greatest artist if they see effort in your entry. Also out of the box entries tend to get appreciated a lot.

    I have been getting golds and high overall places, if anyone needs any advice apart from the amazing guide Noxus gave us my private messages are always open!

    It also helps if you see which popular BCers have previews incoming, as they usually have a lot of time and friends that vote for them, I avoid entering those weeks because I like them silver and gold shinies.

    The art chat is super sweet and I encourage anyone to enter on there.
