The competition’s premise is simple: with your Pet Society pet and the multitude of items available in the game, you’re invited to become a virtual film director and recreate a scene from your favorite movie – starring your pet – and enter it into our competition page. Winners in a variety of categories will receive the highly coveted Golden Mayor award!
This is a chance to really flex your creative muscles and show us what you can do! To get more of an idea of what we’re looking for, I spoke with the competition’s organizer, Cristina Fuser, to get her thoughts.
“Our main goal, of course, is for players to have fun!” said Cristina. “We’ve always known that our game players are very clever and creative. You only have to look at our previous competition winners to see just how imaginative they can be. But this time we’re looking for players to get their inspiration from Hollywood, Bollywood or whatever the case may be and cast their pets within scenes from their favorite movie and turn them into stars!”
It’s always amazed me how players can take various items from the Pet Society store and transform them in an incredibly creative way that we couldn’t have imagined.
Cristina agrees: “Every time we launch a new competition, we never know what new and ingenius ideas players will come up with. It’s all very exciting! This competition is quite different from our previous ones, which typically reflected holidays or festivals from around the world. But the Pets Movie Awards is a brand new event that will give players an opportunity to showcase their ideas and creativity in an entirely new and fun way.
“Having taken a look through the thousands of scenes already submitted, it’s really incredible to see what people have come up with. I keep thinking, ‘Oooh! I wonder what the next one is like?’ and I spend the next hour going through more entries. It’s quite addicting! I often hear people from the office – who have been looking at the entries, too – saying that they are tempted to enter themselves.
“Like the Oscars or Golden Globes, this competition is very competitive and judging is going to be very challenging. All of the entries are so good and just looking at the them has been so much fun. I can’t begin to imagine how much fun our players are having making them.”
The Pet Society Movie Awards competition ends Sunday, February 28, at midnight GMT, and the lucky winners in each category will be announced and presented with their very own Golden Mayor award on Tuesday, March 2, on the official Pet Society blog.
Good luck – and as they say in Hollywood, “Break a leg!”
