We want to see your most inspirational LOTRO-themed motivational posters; we’ll provide the template, you provide the image, caption, and title! Make them as serious or as funny as you like!

At the end of the contest, we’ll choose five of our favourite posters. These posters will be featured in our Motivational Poster Gallery at the LOTRO Europe website, and their creators will also be rewarded with a very motivational 500 Points to spend in the LOTRO Europe Store and a mini goodie bag!

Faya,

I had to laugh when I saw this compo thread!

It is a toss up between entering the compo here or posting an demotivational here.

Maybe I could do both! ROFL.

Any way, thanks for the 'heads up'.

Splendid!

As a frequent visitor of "Very Demotivational - The Demotivational Posters Blog", I'm a big fan of satirising this publishing meme. Great idea for a contest, Faya. And Happy 4th Birthday, LotRO!

When the results are published, could you please post a link to them in this thread?

I've sent a 'Motivational Poster Contest – Results, Please?' message to <lotrocompetition@codemasters.com> and a PM to Faya, ending with, "Please publish the ‘Motivational Poster Contest Winners’ announcement at ‘Codemasters : : News’ (better late than never) – or let myself and other competition entrants know why the announcement is delayed, and when it will be made."

Hi folks,

Some of the winners took a long time getting back to us so rather than announce in dribs and drabs we waited. I actually have the announcement ready to go, it will go up after maintenance has ended to the website but I'll see if I can get it posted to the forums this morning. Sorry for the delay on this!

Edit: Posted! The Motivational Poster Contest winners
