You must include the following information with your submission:

- Feature image of a section of your Dojo that you want to highlight (in addition to any other images or video you choose to include)

Winter 2021 Featured Dojo contest winners are not eligible for the Spring 2021 Featured Dojo contest. They are welcome to enter again in a future round! Please keep in mind that Clans that have never been Featured are given priority.

Rules for Winners

Given the number of players who will visit Featured Dojos, we have a different standard for content in Featured Dojos than we do for Dojos that aren't open to everyone. We may ask winners to make small changes to their Dojos for the time they are featured based on the following:

- Nothing vulgar or offensive can be included in Dojos while they are featured on the Star Chart
- You cannot change your Clan Tier until after your Clan Dojo has been featured on the Star Chart
- Winners who disregard these rules while their Dojo is featured will have their Dojos removed from the Star Chart. If deemed necessary, increased disciplinary action will also be taken

Featured Spots for winners are reserved for June - August. Each winning Clan will hold a Featured Spot for one month.

Winners

Selecting Winners

Phase One

After the contest closes, a group of Warframe Community Team members and the contest round’s Guest Judge will take one week to review all submissions. This process includes:

- Organizing all submissions by Clan Tier and console. Your submission will only compete with other submissions in the same category.

- Confirming submissions obeyed the contest rules.

Phase Two

Once preparations are complete, judging begins! We begin by narrowing down submissions to top submissions. The team looks for two traits above all in this process: creativity and quality.

- Creativity: We love unique designs! Some examples of rooms that blew us away in the past are fully stocked libraries, train stations, arcades, and pirate ships. Whether your decorating style focuses on small details or big structures, we appreciate the creativity you put into your work.

- Quality: Only filling a room with decorations will not secure your victory when there’s stiff competition! Be thoughtful about how you choose to place decorations. The best Dojos we’ve seen have conveyed stories and themes. Make the decorations your own!

Phase Three

Community Team members and the Guest Judge will closely review and compare top submissions a second time to select the winners. During this stage of the judging process, additional factors are considered:

- The number of times the Clan has won and been featured on the Star Chart. Clans that have never been featured are given priority.

- If a higher Clan tier category (Mountain or Moon) has only received repeat submissions, we consider giving a larger tier Clan’s slot to a smaller Clan (Ghost, Shadow, or Storm). We do this to account for the difference in the number of submissions we receive in smaller tier categories compared to larger tier categories. From 2018 - 2020, we received 367 larger tier submissions compared to 1,685 smaller tier submissions.

Large structures are impressive, but keep in mind that small details set winning submissions apart from top submissions. Focus on creating an immersive atmosphere with details we can’t ignore. Make your Dojo a testament to your unique Clan!
