Greetings Folks!

We here on the FarmVille Team want to see what our most talented Farmers are capable of with nothing more than Hay Bales and a little bit of imagination.

Submit photos of your Hay Bale Art from May 13th – May 20th for a chance to win 1000 Farm Cash and 1,000,000 coins in our Hay Bale Art Decorating Contest!

This time around, there is no theme you guys have to adhere to. Just make sure to wow us with some creative, detailed art. The sky's the limit!

In addition to the cash and coins, the winners will have their farms presented on the Farmville Fan Page!

Happy Farming!

Image Posting Tutorial:

For those of you how may not be familiar with how to use the forums, I have created a quick tutorial on how to post an image to the forums.

  1. Take your photo.

  2. Upload your photo to your computer, and save it.

  3. Next, your image needs to be hosted. Go to (Don't worry, it's free!)

  4. Click on the "Browse" button.

  5. Select the image you wish to upload from your computer.

  6. Check the box next to the "Resize image?" option.

  7. From the pull down menu, select "800 x 600 ".

  8. Click "Start Upload"

  9. Once the image is uploaded, copy the "Direct Link".

  10. Open up the FarmVille forums, and click "Post Reply" In the official Event thread.

  11. Click on the button that looks like a picture. (See the highlighted red section in the image below)

  12. Paste the "Direct Link" URL you copied earlier into the pop-up that appears.

  13. Click "submit reply".

  14. That's it! You should see your image posted in the thread.

Please remember that this is only one of many free image hosting websites. It is not required that users use Imageshack to participate in this event.

A vast majority of free image hosting websites have a bandwidth limit. This means that if enough people view your picture, there is the possibility that your bandwidth will be exceeded, and your image will no longer be visible. Should this happen, it is your responsibility to re-upload your image to another site prior to the end of the event.

Happy farming everyone!
