Dear Reds,

"your summoner name..."

Does this mean the name I log in with, or the one people see when I play games?

So, Do all 3 people, granted they have League accounts get a jacket and all the Snowdown skins? Or is that just for one person?

A few questions...
1. If I participate with my friends (say 2) will all 3 of us get the prizes?
2. For the snowdown skins, what if we do not own one of the champions with the skin? Will we get the champion and the skin, the skin, or nothing at all.
3. On the submission website, it only allows us to input one summoner name, so would we have to send multiple submissions for each person?
Thanks for your time

Yes, they also get the champions if they don't already have them!

Add a graham cracker and you're good to go.

I have a feeling that a fake graham cracker will look worse and be more expensive than a real one, but we can contact people on an individual basis if we feel their entries are not quite genuine foodstuffs.

The focus is on using gingerbread and cookies, so it'd be wise to use them as a primary ingredient... but I'm down for some creativity.

Artistic and creative skill, yes. Contests are often focused on creative individuals who can express themselves wonderfully in a medium of their choice. We're always hoping to expand our contest repertoire so if you have any ideas for contests that you feel would work well for Riot, I'd love to hear them!

My problem with the last food contest was it rewarded people who could make sculptures out of fondant, not creativity with food. There were a lot of runner ups in the contest that should have been in the top 10 over the ones where it was a screenshot of pure fondant.

In terms of non-artistic contests, I feel like the contest where you had to hold up a sign in a crowd was a step in the right direction (the one I could have actually participated in). You could do more "go out and do this" contests or some kind of scavenger hunt type contest.

Let me preface that, possibly, graham crackers are the answer to everything ever.

You can use other materials, but it should primarily BE gingerbread or be in a gingerbread style. You know, those gingerbread houses? Yeah them!

Yes, you have to visibly have gingerbread, graham crackers or cookies in the creation, and bonus points if it's the focus of the submission. If it is not visible, it is not eligible.

Yes, send to him, not to me. My insulin levels are already quaking in fear.

And, I'll get to eat it afterwards!
Fun is job #1 when it comes to contests! Whether you win or lose, we want you to enjoy the process.

Heck to the Yes, go crazy with it! Gotta have the cookie-stuff too, but remember what I mentioned? Graham crackers. They are the answer to everything ever.
