Birthday Competition – Millionaire

August 8, 2009

Our grand prize winner, who has won an amazing 1,000,000 coins, is Brett and of course his pet Bubbles! Brett’s song and video excelled in many of the categories as it is very impressive, resourceful, original, creative, fun and makes great use of technology! We aren’t quite sure if Bubbles liked having his face replaced by Brett’s, but we could tell that Brett certainly enjoyed it. So we really hope he will be “one content civilian” now that he has “slightly less than 40 billion”! Congratulations Brett, enjoy the boxes, fish, ladybug, bunny, gadgets, koala, blue bubble chair and whatever else you choose to spend it on (we’re sure your friends are really hoping there is a little left over for your neighbour pets)! Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Birthday Competition – Most Cute

August 8, 2009

The title of Most Cute goes to Jorge and his pet Kokes. Jorge created this excessively cute image, and wanted to make his girlfriend’s dreams come true if he won a million coins (awwwwww)! Congratulations Jorge, your artwork is adorable and made us all want for you to be able to spoil your girlfriend (even though the 100,000 coins you have won will be added to your account not hers, we are sure you can afford to get her some great gifts)! Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

If I had a million Pet Society Coins… Honestly I would like them to be added into my Girlfriend´s Pet (Marie Cupcake), so she can have anything she wants, give away to whomever she feels like.

Why? Well I can only tell that I prefer her beautiful smile!:)


Birthday Competition – Most Resourceful

August 8, 2009

Hana and her pet Oinky have won the Most Resourceful category, and 100,000 coins to spend on Pet Society! Going on the Ellen Show may not be every pet’s dream, but it would mean so much to Oinky (and Moinky), and Hana has obviously spent a lot of effort in her entry detailing how this would be achieved (if she won a million coins) via a real life demonstration! And in case that wasn’t ingenious enough (which it is, but anyway), she also included a real life cat (also known as the polar bear plushie)! Congratulations Hana, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!
















Birthday Competition – Most Impressive

August 8, 2009

Gina and her pet Bloop have won the title for Most Impressive, with this stunning cartoon! The graphics are delightful, and the entire piece is a fantastic visual journey. With dreams of fish, baking delicious food, and a golden tree, Bloop definitely knows what he wants, although obviously is not so clear on the implementation, luckily he has friends! It may not be a million, but hopefully Bloop now knows that food is better bait than coins when going fishing, as Gina has won 100,000 coins! Congratulations Gina, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Birthday Competition – Most Original

August 8, 2009

Purchasing the world’s biggest seed, to grow a tree that produces endless seeds to share with friends has won Maged the title of Most Original and 100,000 coins to spend in Pet Society! Maged’s video is not only unique and inventive, but comes with a reminder about looking after our planet! Congratulations on this highly creative and fun piece Maged, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Birthday Competition – Best Use of Technology

August 8, 2009

Logan’s Evil Plans, despite being slightly evil, has won the award for Best Use of Technology, and 100,000 coins! We trust that the 100,000, as opposed to a million, will not be enough to allow the evil plan to complete, and hence our current Mayor should remain safe! Ardy’s video has been put together very skilfully, with everything in perfect sync. And it’s also a lot of fun, which is fine as long as it never actually eventuates, otherwise many pets may be arrested for “illegal cuteness”, and we wouldn’t want that! Congratulations Ardy, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Birthday Competition – Most Fun

August 8, 2009

Kirsten and her pet Yoda have won the title of Most Fun and 100,000 coins for Yoda’s amazing world-wide adventures, and despite a little run in with the Mayor over importing some un-declared cheese, the idea of using the prize money to supply not only Yoda, but the Mayor with various delicious cheeses by teleporting all over the universe is a winner! Plus, the cartoon is very well crafted, so congratulations Kirsten! Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Birthday Competition – Most Creative

August 8, 2009

With a truly well written poem, and for being a very original entry, Elizabeth takes home the title of Most Creative! We hope you have a bit more luck down at the pond than what’s portrayed in your poem, but if not initially, maybe buying some additional bait with some of your 100,000 coins will help! Congratulations Elizabeth, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!

Amongst the rocks, the moss and fronds
three pets sat at the edge of the pond
each held a rod, so determined and tight
but alas, there was nothing
not a single bite.

“Blast these fish!” One pet cried
“We’re not gonna catch one,
no matter how hard we try!”
The second looked on
in an effort for a catch.
He jiggled his rod,
for just one little snatch.

“You’re right, it is hopeless!”
The second one wailed
“No matter how hard we work
we’ve always failed!”

But the third stayed still
deep in thought,
and after a moment, he pushed his brow taut.
“No matter then, friends,
there’s always tomorrow.”
So the three packed their things
and left for their burrows.

Later that night, the lottery was drawn
the third pet listened, and stifled a yawn.
“Three, four, sixty nine and eight”
The third’s eye’s widened-
it must have been fate!
While the last number was formally announced
the third pet waited, in his seat he bounced…

The next morning the old pets, one and two;
Arrived at their pond but looked lost and confused.
For instead of the third pet, they found a large truck
but after a moment, reality struck.

As the truck backed towards the pond
frightening the critters, and squishing the fronds.
At the sound of its horn
it tipped all its goods.
Bountiful fish galore!
The two pets stood in awe
they had never seen so many fish before!

The third pet arrived with a smile of glee
“Our problems are over, can you see?
I won the million, and remembered the fish
so I thought I’d grant our common wish!
I bought these fish to put in our pond
So we have something to catch
while we sit in the fronds!”

And so amongst the rocks, the moss and fronds
three pets sat at the edge of the pond
each held a rod, so determined and tight
but this time, there was something!
The fish, they’d bite!

Birthday Competition – Best Use of Cheese

August 8, 2009

Maegan’s drawing of her pet Jayla has won the award for the Best Use of Cheese and 100,000 coins! We really appreciated Maegan’s simplistic and subtle approach! Her artwork is outstanding, plus it was quite an original use of cheese! Congratulations Maegan, Playfish will contact you shortly so that you can claim your prize!
