Another break was given on the StrayPixels front, and players were promised that it would return eventually. However, when the competition returned for February 2012 the theme was a goodbye one, to insinuate that StrayPixels was no longer going to be a competition for Habbo. To give a good send off entrants had to show Carl the Duck having a life outside Habbo and it was adequately named 'Duck: A Pond Farewell.'

For this competition, you needed to create a new item that fit in with different guidelines.

Overview

StrayPixels were a series of graphic competitions hosted by Habbo Staff on the North American website (Habbo.com). The competition first started in March 2008 and lasted officially until 2012. These competitions required participants to create a graphic design each month that was suited to the various themes given by staff or submitted by fellow Habbos. Graphics were submitted to NotMiceElf and his team of judges who determined the winners and honorable mentions. Winning users were rewarded with a StrayPixels easel (the specific item depended on how many times the user won the competition), a Duck Trophy inscribed by staff, and a rare sticker for use on the now-retired Habbo homepage.

History

The first round of StrayPixels competitions ran for two years between March 2008 and March 2010. However this ended after the merge of all English-speaking hotels. Only Duck Trophies and badges were awarded to winners during this initial run of the competition.

The second set of StrayPixels competitions ran from July 2010 until September 2011. This was the first time the StrayPixels easels, rare homepage stickers, the 'Honorable Mention' award, and the 'Theme Selected' award badges were given out as prizes. The first competition was unique in that the theme required participants to design the new easels that would be given out as prizes for the StrayPixels Winner x1 easel and the StrayPixels Winner x3 easel. The two 'Honorable Mention' submissions were turned into the flower and octopus designs on the StrayPixels Winner x1 easel, while the winners avilaman, HankMcCoy, and ,CrystalBailey had their designs incorporated into the StrayPixels Winner x3 easel.

Near the end of the StrayPixels competition Habbo decided to switch the judging conditions from a staff panel to user votes through the Habbo Facebook page. Fans who liked the Habbo page could vote for their favourite entries. The winner's submission was then turned into a real furniture item on Habbo. For this competition, you needed to create a new item that fit in with different guidelines. There is only one example of a StrayPixels submission turning into a real item (see Stone Knight), and this form of competition has not returned since.

In February of 2012 it was announced that StrayPixels was coming to an end, largely because notMiceElf was too busy with other staff obligations. To give a good send off, entrants had to design Carl the Duck having a life outside Habbo and the theme was adequately named 'Duck: A Pond Farewell.'
