National Barbie Day Screenshot Contest Rules


  • Dress up your AQW character(s) in outfits inspired by Barbie. Whether it’s chic or splendid, noble or nostalgic, let your wonderful imagination run wild 🦄
  • See the “Categories” below to get your sensational screenshot-senses tingling!  


  • Begins Friday, March 8, 2024
  • Ends Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 11:59 pm EST


These categories are just some fabulous suggestions to get your creativity flowing, since it certainly got me excited thinking about the possibilities! Eeeeep! 

  • 💝 Best Battleon Barbae or Barbro: 
    Show off your AQW character’s style with the most amazing ensemble that’s totally 200% Barbie-approved. 
  • 🪄 Character Class Barbae:
    If Barbie was in AQWorlds, what Class would she choose? IRL Barbies can be Astronauts or Veterinarians… but not Vampires, Paladins, or Necromancers! What’s up with that?! With over 100 Classes in AQW to choose from… how does your Battleon Barbae do battle? 
  • 🏡 Barbae Dream House:
    Get ready to create a Barbie-tastic abode! If you were designing Battleon Barbae’s Dream Home, what would it look like? 
  • 🐎 Barbae Riding Club:
    True story folks: “Barbie Riding Club” was me and my sister’s favorite PC game growing up (feel free to message me on Twitter to relive nostalgic memories of that game. OMG it’s Sky Racer… and she has a foal! *squeeee!!*). So um, yeah, that being said… there’s just gotta be a horse-themed category for this contest, otherwise 10-year-old me is gonna freak the freak out! (I think dragons should also be accepted into the Battleon Riding Club, since dragons can also be ridden by the bravest Barbaes and Barbros.)
  • 💀 Dage’s Undead… Dolls?
    Dark Lord Dage of the Undead Legion just celebrated his birthday – and he’s got loads of Legion gear just waiting for you! But who says Battleon Barbaes and Barbros can’t be Malibu Minions for Dage’s Undead Army? Yeah! Party on, skeletons! 
  • 🤩 Maybe more categories?! 
    We’ll just have to see what our community dishes out! Feel free to submit any screenshots you think will really wow the judges (and Barbie too, JIC she is watching… which we secretly hope she is). 


  • The Grand Prize Winner in each category will receive 1,000 AdventureCoins!
  • Our 2nd Place Winner(s) will win 500 ACs.
  • 3rd Place Winners(s) will get 250 ACs.
  • Runner Ups will get 100 ACs each.

New Look for AQWorlds

All-New Art for a New Year!

Prepare yourselves, because AQWorlds is getting a new look... and it's starting with our base class art! Over the last few weeks, we've mentioned the re-design of AQW's in-game interface and character creation screen, we're working on its website appearance, and the re-design of our base classes is almost done!

We leveled up our art skills!

But What About the Old Art?

If you love the current art for the base classes (the ones you choose while creating characters), never fear! We will be changing all of the base class art in-game to the new versions automatically, but if you can't do without your original gear (OGear?), you'll be able to buy it back for gold!

The Class skills themselves will not change, but the quality of the new art will reflect how far AQW has come since 2008! Especially when we finish re-designing the town of Battleon, the first map you join when you log in!

Battleon Re-design... WHAT?!

We're going all-out to make AQW look as good in its starting town as it does in the newer zones... and that means Battleon needs a makeover! Artix sketched out his plan for the town, Cysero and I reviewed it today, and we REALLY want to release this in early 2013! 

This time, the pencil is mightier than the sword!

With NPC all-new quests that will send you exploring across Lore, dynamic shops, exclusive member-only content, a library, forge, and more... Battleon will be THE place to be for all Heroes in 2013!

Sketch On!

With all of the changes we're planning, AQW is going to become even MORE awesomely fun than it already is!
But ... 

We Face a HUGE Battle, and We've Got to Win!

Because this Friday at sundown, we face the Beast Quetzal AND Kezeroth in our 12-21-12 event, and we won't be able to do ANY of these plans if Lore is destroyed! 

The Beast Quetzal is awake... and waiting!

We need you and all your friends to log in and defeat Kezeroth during our End of All Things Frostval event! Slay the Beast Quetzal to thwart the World Ender's plot and make sure that there will be a Lore to battle in next year... and for many years to come!
