Wizard101 10th Anniversary Contest Winners

Wizard101 celebrated their ten-year anniversary this month with contests galore! Here are the 10th anniversary contest winners this year from Swordroll's Blog.

Design a Doodlefish

I'm a big fan of fishing, and I'm ready to reward any wizard who wants to join in on the fishing fun. All you have to do is use a little creativity to design your own doodlefish. Your design may involve a simple description, a drawing, a digital design, or whatever else you can use to convey your idea.


  • First: Joseph Shadowblood
Joseph's entry did something original that only two participants thought of - actually mount their image on cardboard. The contest was to create not just a fish, but a doodlefish, and this creative measure really makes Joseph's entry stand out. Several entries, including this one, proposed the idea of using a pet as a fish, which is original. In this entry in particular, the translation of the subject into fish form is really well done. It has the traditional outlines and even stylized eyes that fit the doodlefish look very well. Joseph even found a great background to take the photo on. Additionally, he included relevant details and fishing information (and who can resist a good pun?). Nice work!


Can be seen swimming in the waters of Wizard City.
With the tail as old as time, this fish surely loves History
and has lots of tales to tell!

Classification: Balance
Rank: 2
Rarity: Seasonal
Aquarium: Regular
Location: Wizard City

  • Second: Nathan Darkblood
While it's not uncommon to see characters become doodlefish, we haven't yet seen a Gamma fish. Nathan's entry went a step further, though, and imagined Gamma as he might appear in an Aztecan headdress and other decoration. Nathan broke from the tradition of a character's hands transforming into fins and went with wings. His execution and craftsmanship on the concept are superb.
I made a doodlefish, I was thinking about how the birds in Azteca are wearing very colorful interesting costumes, and how funny it would be if Gamma had worn them as well.

  • Third: Iridian Willowglen
Iridian was the other contestant clever enough to cut out a drawing and place it on cardboard as a physical representation of what's in game. Besides that, she uses pattern and line work along with the W101 to create a colorful catch for the holidays. The candle on the head was particularly interesting to me, as it mimicked the lure of an anglerfish. 

The DecaDoodlefish can be found in ponds all over the spiral grinning gill to gill for Wizard101’s 10th anniversary. Wizards love to catch them because they taste like cake.

  • 2x Random Draw: Keller Anvilhorn, Heather Silvermask

There were quite a few really good entries and it was tough to make a final decision! I may share additional doodlefish entries in a future post.

  • First: Erin Dragonheart
Erin's dorm is looking fantastic and absolutely fitting for the anniversary season, featuring birthday items and other KI-related gifts and decorations. There's clearly a lot of effort put in here and it makes for a great screenshot. Good job!

  • Second: Sarah Skystrider
Sarah is celebrating with the birthday balloons mount, school banners, and some of the epic food items given away during a KI Live stream! She even caught the gobbler popping out of the cake. It all works together for an impressive screenshot.

  • Third: Nathaniel Nightshade
Nathaniel did a little decorating as well, with present wallpaper and birthday-themed items that include a little glitching to enhance the beautiful cake centerpiece.
