Welcome to this holiday contest topic!
No, this doesn’t have anything to do with fighting. Just an allusion to that show called the Great Christmas Light Fight, and this’ll be sorta similar.
So, how does this work?
There will be 2 or more teams, starting with 2 and creating more if necessary. You get to choose which team you’d like to join. There aren’t any captains or leaders of teams or whatever, and there can be up to 4 people on a team. I may even out the teams if they are really unevenly filled, like 1 person to 4 people.
Teams will have unlisted team topics. The judges will be watching those topics to determine how much of the team is working together, because they’ll be judged on that. They may use a collab account or trade drafts.
Teams can name their team.
The teams will be given a challenge. It will have something to do with aesthetics, graphics, and bright colors, hence the contest name. They will have a week to complete it, so naturally it will be a short challenge. There will be 3 challenges. The first will start December 4. After that will be a period of judging, ending January 1st, the day I release the results.
How judging works is the scores for each individual challenge from each team will be compiled into one average. Highest one wins!
I will be appointing 3 judges. I’ll be a judge too. I’ll make a judging topic at the start of the judging period or earlier and ask a lead to unlist it. If you would like to be a judge, please fill out this form.
Judges will be allowed to watch team topics. How else are they supposed to watch

What Each Part Means
Smoothness: Are there bugs? How many? How big? If there are none, give a 10. If there are many game-impairing bugs, give a 0.
Originality: Is it a generic idea? Does it stand out from other projects, or blend in? Is it very similar to other projects? If it stands out, give a 10. If it is cliche, deduct something points. If it is very similar, give a 0. If it’s a complete copy, the team’s disqualified from that challenge.
This part will be finished later.
Rules are basically no copying, no stalking other teams’ topics, etc. Basic stuff competitors of most every comp are not supposed to do.
Teams in next post. Just ask to join a team!
