  • Entries can be hand-drawn then scanned in or drawn digitally using a tablet/software
  • If your entry is made in Adobe Flash, please note that in your contest post.
  • Your entry must be made by you.* 
  • Include your game character name on the drawing. This way we really know it’s made by you! 
  • Be posted to the AE_Contests Twitter account

*Do not copy someone else’s hard work. That, my friend is called cheating, and you will be disqualified for it.

Design Templates

Follow these links for an armor template used in AdventureQuest Worlds. You do not need to use them, but you may find them helpful.

Note: You do not need to use the reference art. It exists as a guide for those who want to draw on top of it / use it to compare sizing, positioning. 


Grand Prize Winner/s from each category will get:

  • Winning design created and released in-game
  • 2,000 AC prize
  • Free 2021 TLaPD Collection Chest
  • To choose a friend (or alt account) to also receive the free TLaPD chest
  • Character page badge

Victory Circle Winner/s from each category will get:

  • 2,000 AC prize
  • Character page badge


  • Winning designs will be recreated/translated into Flash by one of the AdventureQuest Worlds team artists. If your design only includes a single gender, the AQW artist working on it will create the other gender.
  • If your winning entry is submitted in Flash, we may reach out to work with you directly on creating the set for the game rather than having a team artist translate it.

As always, we reserve the right to reward contest entries that go above and beyond, or show incredible creativity or passion.

Good Luck!

The entire AQWorlds Crew cannot wait to see what you landlubbers come up with!
