Season 5 - Rules and Sign up!

**AGC Season 5 is filled up, thanks everyone for entering! If you missed it this time, stay tuned for Season 6!**

Girl Contest - Season 5

hosted by hannah

Hi Everyone! I'm Hannah, and I'm the host for this season's AGC.

I know that most of you already now, but I thought it would be best to explain what AGC - American Girl Contest - is all about.

AGC is a fun photo contest that started on the message board, and now has this blog of it's own. AGC is made up of several rounds, and each round will have a theme. After you send in your pictures, I'll judge them by:

Creativity - how creative and imaginative they are. Make sure you are really creative with your pictures! Really think about the theme.
Appearance - how well the photo is set up, details in the picture, how your doll looks, the quality, etc.

After each round, I will have to eliminate 2 people. The contest will continue like this until there's two people left in the contest for the final round. I'll judge the pictures, and the winner will be the host of the next Season of AGC!

Here are the rules, there's only a few, so please read them to make sure you understand everything!

1. Sign up with one american girl doll, who is to be that main doll in ALL of your photos. You may have other dolls in your picture, just make sure that the doll you entered is always the main character.

2. Only enter one picture per round.

3. There will be a due date, so please make sure you have your pictures in on time! Unfortunately I will have to eliminate/disqualify anyone who doesn't send their pics in on time.

4. Editing and watermarking your pictures is allowed and encouraged.

5. Please send me the pictures through email, it's just more organized that way. You can send me the picture by attaching it to the email, or sending me a link to the picture on your picasa web album, etc. Here's the email address you should use:

6. Anyone who can't email me can PM me through the message board.

7. Do your best, have fun, and be creative!

I hope that explains everything, if not feel free to PM me or email me at or leave a comment!

Okay, sorry that was long! Here's what you do to sign up!

All you need to do is comment below with your name and the name of the doll you are going to use. For instance "Hannah with Katyanna".

There can be between 10 to 15 people, so if you want to enter, hurry! :)

Soon I'll make a post with a list of everyone who signed up, and the first round's theme!

AGC Season 4 Champion Announced!!

Karalee & Rebecca

Hannie & Katyanna

First I would like to say that when I first got the pics from this round, I was like "AAAAH!! Which one am I going to choose?" but then I went back and looked at all of Karalee and Hannie's pictures from this season. In my usual unnecessarily complicated way, I gave up to five points for each picture....and it was very hard!!! But eventually I figured it all out...and the difference was by 3 points.

The Grand Champion of Season 4 is.....................................................


CONGRATS!! I'll email you more about hosting Season 5, and add your photos to the winner gallery! Also, I'll send the top 3 people your awards soon! Great job and thanks to everyone for participating. :) Hopefully we'll get the next season underway soon!
