Please help the contest by upvoting this post so that other people will get notifications about it! I and the artists would really appreciate your help!
*First of all, thank you so much for participating! And let’s not forget about the reason I hold the contest and the reason you took the polls:
The reason I originally held last year’s contest:
I invited the devs to join “Heroes of the Storm Community” on Facebook and see my fan-made skin concept arts album there (which consists of HotS’ skin concepts all over the Internet) in the latest AMA. And Andrew Kinabrew replied: “We're always looking. These are fun ideas! However, need to see a demonstration from the community that a single skin is wanted. 146 concepts is nice but that doesn't narrow anything down to a single community favorite. Please rally behind a concept so that we have a better gauge of what the community likes.” (He is a really talented 3D artist. He made Dark Nexus Deathwing, Cuddle Bear Stiches, Alexstraza's Dragon Form and most importantly JANITOR LEORIC! (and many more awesome work, you can see some of his work
The reason I continue to hold this year’s contest:
u/Blizz_KinaBREW said just 2 months ago: “Concepts that come from the community are awesome and many concepts the community have come up with are frequently talked about in our skin pack meetings. One of the highest voted skins in one of the last community voted polls was C'thun Probius. Super cool idea. Slotting it in a skin pack is something we still would like to do. Know that we are talking about things like this often.” Original dev comment.
And we know that the devs are in the planning stage of what they’re going to do for 2021: https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/g96brg/heroes_of_the_storm_ama_april_30_2020/fp2ypqh?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
So maybe we can help them find a highly-requested fan-made skin to make for 2021.
So the reason of the contest IS NOT to choose the top 1 concept and then tell the devs that they have to make it! The “contest” is a chance for the community to “rally behind a concept” so that the devs “have a better gauge of what the community likes.” And different people like different things, and this community can’t be a community without all the “different people” and their opinions. So the result is not just the most voted concept from the Final Round, but the result ‘is’ the results from all 3 rounds. And please don’t tell the devs that they have to make the most voted concept, but tell them that they should make whatever concept they like and we’ll be happy with it.
*Here are the results of all 3 rounds. This is it, this is where our hard work pays off (mine and yours)! So please upvote this post so that more people and especially the devs can see it!

A (kinda farewell) message from me:
Hi guys! I hope you enjoyed the contest as much as I did! I really wanted this contest to be an annual Community Event. However, I'm very sad to announce that I can't run the contest next year. It's not like I'm quitting or hating the game or anything, life just hit me hard. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer months before I announced this 2nd contest. At first, I didn't want to hold this contest, however, after some time, as you can see, I still decided to hold it as I promised to hold the 2nd contest again this year. Now that the contest is over, I will probably be much less active on Reddit and the game's Official Forums (I may still create some posts and comments from time to time though) to spend more time taking care of my family. The reason I decided to not hold the contest next year is that holding the contest is surprisingly time-consuming and it's really hard to find fan-made skin concepts on the Internet! I really hope that my efforts pay off!
As I knew I can't hold the contest next year, I intentionally made my Submission Round into a gallery of skin concepts, so that if anyone wants to continue holding the contest next year, they would have a much easier time than I did (as they wouldn't have to spend much time finding new concepts). Here is the link to the Submission Round/Gallery: https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/hd6el2/2nd_annual_heroes_of_the_storm_fanmade_skin/
Thank you so much for participating in this Contest and being a part of this amazing, talented Community!
(If you have time, please share this post with your HotS friends, HotS fan pages that you know.)
See you in the Nexus! <3
