Design a Classic Pet 2023!


Happy New Year! A new year calls for a new pet design contest! We would like you to design a new Webkinz Classic pet that will be sold by Ganz eStore starting on Webkinz Day – April 29, 2023!


Here’s how it works:


Between January 1 and 31, 2023 design a pet that you think would make a great addition to Webkinz World! It can be any kind of pet you like! You can use one of the templates provided below or you can create your own drawing. You can enter as many times as you like!


You can use any kind of art supplies that you want – markers, pencil crayons, crayons, or other art materials. While we will not accept images that have computer generated patterns or graphics copied and added to them, participants may use programs like Paint or Photoshop to color and draw freehand. We can’t accept submissions with company logos or sports team emblems. Please make sure you save your images as a jpg, gif, or png.


You don’t need to include a suggestion for the pet’s PSI and PSF but you can if you want!
Submit your drawing to the Pet Design 2023 Gallery in the Share Center by January 31, 2023.



Then wait to see if your design is one of the 10 finalists.



The winner will have their design turned into a real virtual pet in Webkinz World and they will receive a code for their pet when it is added to Webkinz World. They will also receive a 10,000 eStore Points, a virtual Pet Design Trophy, and all ten finalists will each receive a 6 pack of 2023 Winterfest Cookies, courtesy of Ganz eStore.

    I’ve been playing Webkinz/Ganz games for many years now, and this is the first design contest I’ve entered in quite some time, safe to say I’ve improved quite a bit since my last entry, haha :) I had a lot of fun drawing it, good luck to all! :D
