Navy's Winter Night Contest
Alas I am hosting another contest! Since I am a lover of the night, and I know many of you out there are too, I am hosting a Winter night contest! So! Here's the deal...
There are going to be three options in this contest. A Digital/Traditional option, a Literature, and a photography option. But there will be only ONE winner overall the options. I just wanted to provide a few categories for those who are not strong in digital art and who perhaps wanted the choice of writing instead of drawing. Basically you can choose whichever section you want. And if you want to make a digital art piece and enter a poem / short story you can. All in all the sections are for you to choose from. You can enter however many times in however many sections. Just please, be reasonable. : )
If you fancy writing then your goal for this contest is to write a short story / poem based off my pony Navy Canvas and her sisters. The setting is a winter night/evening. You may come up with a short story on Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day involving my character and my sisters characters. If you like it can only be about one of the ponies, or it can be about all three sisters. The goal is to write something sweet involving one, two or all of them. The freedom is yours to choose how the poem is set up, or how the out come turns out. Just as long as the poem has at least four stanzas and the short story has at least 150 words. Also if you read my Ponies descriptions and are able to match their personalities as best as you can, that will be taken note of.
For this section you may take a photo involving something wintery / Christmasy indicating a Christmas/Winter evening / night. Something warm, cozy, and comforting. Peaceful even. I would really like if it was something new, but if you have an older piece you've taken that perfectly fits this topic perfectly you may enter it. n_n Keep in mind if you have a few photos you like feel free to enter as many as you like. No more then 10 entires though.
Digital Art/ Traditional Art option
For this category you have the choice of drawing a winter scene involving my pony Navy Canvas and her sisters Crimson Beat and Indigo Blitz. If you like you may draw one of these ponies on a Winter night or you may draw all three together. You just HAVE to make sure it is dark outside and or the sun is setting. You can have the ponies sitting next to a fire, perhaps one pony witnessed seeing Santa, or perhaps they are out trotting through the snow viewing christmas lights on a dark winter evening. Regardless the scene must have something to do with Winter or christmastime. n_n Detail and creativity as well as effort and time taken will be noted.

How to stand out
- Literature wise I am looking for a poem that can cleverly involve all my ponies together. Something sweet, loving and Christmasy.
- Photography wise I am one for color, christmas lights, candy canes, snow, animals, snowflakes, innocent Christmasy things I am a sucker for. If you involve any of those in the photo you will stand out. Also a unique angle, something cleverly thought out and planned to make look good. I also like scenery, preferably snowy and of course at night.
- Digital art wise I would love for you to incorporate Navy Canvas and both of her sisters in a nighttime scenery. I want to see all of them together on a Christmas evening.
- If you ask me more personal questions and take time to come up with an entry that fits my requirements you will stand out above the rest.
- AGE WISE REGARDING MY PONIES. Navy Canvas is Princess Cadences age. Crimson Beat is the Mane 6's age and Indigo Blitz is the Cutie Mark Crusaders age.

Contest Submission Story :D Navy was walking in the cold and unwelcoming woods, shivering from being scared. She hears a howl, recognizing that it had been from a wolf, probably not too far away. She tried trotting a tad bit faster, scared that even her footsteps might attract some unwelcome visitors. It felt like her heart was beating a hundred times faster than usual. Am I going to die? What if I'm out here too long and I freeze to death, or other animals try to kill me? All she had to do right now was stay alive. Another howl rips through the air like the tip of a blade-she now starts to run, hearing her hooves pounding against the snow along with more howls, so
A Pony ChristmasNavy looked outside
And something caught her eye
She called for her sisters to come out
As she spun around and danced about
Crimson was the first to come
As she caught a snowflake on her tongue
Indigo was next to come out
She was happy and flew about
The girls had fun in the new snow
Playing a snowball fight and getting some cocoa
They loved the chocolate taste
They didn't want any to go to waste
Navy looked out under the tree
As she hopped around with glee
Santa had come the night before
And he had brought them stuff galore
Navy got a robe and crown
She wanted to show them off around town
Crimson got some new clothes in fashion
Insanity Christmas (CONTEST)It was a dark and unusual Christmas in ponyville. It was snowing as hard as if I were in a sandstorm. Every pony was in there house having parties. While I Navy Canvas was working late at the paint shop. Painting a wonderful picture of the majestic unicorn Rarity. Her mane was as glittery as if she was from the Chrystal Empire as in the myths. Which I preferred wasn't true.
All I thought about was getting home to my two sisters, Crimson Beat and Indigo Blitz. I was coming home with a painting of them two playing together. I was confused on how I would get it in the house without them noticing. I was a block away when I felt like I was being watched. As I looked around I saw the black figure around my house. As I stared at it it disappeared into the night.
I then started to prance a little faster. As I got up to the door I took out my key and unlocked the door and ran inside.
"Crimson," I yelled hoping they would hear me, " Indigo." surprisingly they didn't answer as if they weren't eve

Falling, his wing charred, the ground came rushing towards him. He knew he was about to die, and his life flashed before his very own eyes.
I am Moon Bright. I was born in a cave, on the side of a mountain, on a dark, blizzard cursed, night. My parents were climbing that mountain when I was born. They found the cave and stayed the night there. I was a Pegasus born from a Unicorn and Earth pony. They knew I was different, I had a coat as white as snow, and a light gray mane that faintly glowed like the moon.
I slept during the day, and was awake at night. I only ever had bad luck during the day, so I slept during the day to stop myself from having bad luck ever again. I also never had any friends as a filly. I was homeschoole
