9–count them–NINE contests, each fully loaded with classy Oxhorn swag! Over the years, I have accumulated quite a lot of World of Warcraft stuff worth a pretty penny. Now, I’m going to give it all away to you! In-game pets, beta keys, signed paintings, grab bags, game subscriptions–Oxhorn’s loot is now your loot. During the month of July, I will host 9 contest, each with it’s own prize pack, that caters to different skills. Whether you’re an artist, a writer or you’re glued to Facebook all day, there is a contest for you! If you have a question, ask it in the forum, here. Here are the details:

Create a machinima movie. Don’t know what a machinima movie is? Watch mine to learn more about them.
