Design a Holiday Room Theme!


To celebrate Christmas in July at Ganz eStore, and to help us get an early start on our newest room theme, we want to invite YOU to design a new Holiday Room Theme!

From July 18 to August 18, 2020 we want fans to submit ideas for a new Holiday Room Theme that will be released in the W Shop on December. One creative designer will be selected to have their idea turned into actual theme in Webkinz World.



Here’s how to enter.

Please ONLY submit one entry per Room Theme. Do not submit multiple drawings. There are THREE things you need to include with your entry:

  • Theme Name
  • 1 drawing of a FIREPLACE for your room theme
  • list of 3 other items that will be a part of the theme

Please include the name and the list in the text field marked ‘Description’ when you upload your image to the Holiday Theme Gallery in the Share Center.

The contest runs from July 18 to August 18, 2020. We will announce 10 finalists on August 21 and, after getting feedback from the Webkinz community, we will announce the winning theme on September 3, 2020.


As well as having their theme made into a real virtual theme in Webkinz World, the winner will also receive the new virtual Silver Fox from Ganz eStore and an Item Design Trophy. All ten finalists will each receive a 2020 Summer Super Mystery Bag.


A few things to remember…

  • You can enter as many different Room Themes as you want, but please remember – only one drawing of a FIREPLACE per theme!
  • Contestants MUST upload their work to Holiday Theme Gallery on the GanzWorld Share Center.
  • You can use any kind of art supplies that you want. Feel free to use markers, pencil crayons, crayons, or other art materials. Go for it!
  • 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.

Bring on your ideas! We can’t wait to see the next Holiday theme to be added to the WShop in December!

    Is there any way I can check/update the email address that is linked to my Webkinz Newz account? When I submitted my entries, it said I would receive an email, but it’s been so long since I made my account and I’m worried it might be linked to an obsolete address.

    Sally Webkinz, will I be disqualified if I include more than three items? I couldn’t narrow it down, so I just gave ideas. If I win, they don’t all have to be included, they’re just options.

  3. purplepot1 says:

    I’m not a good artist. Are you guys going to re-draw my design? I’ve got ideas but I’d like them to be stylized by a real artist, not just turned virtual straight from my drawing if I win, since it wouldn’t be that good haha

    just entered my room theme! :3


    I entered a theme today, only second time I’ve submitted something.. hope I entered it correctly. It wouldn’t let me write a full description. It was fun to create a theme, never tried that before. Can’t wait to see what people think! Lol

    To anyone who can help me: Every time I log into my ganzworld account, the “Submit your images” button disappears for the “Holiday Theme” Gallery! I can enter photos into any other gallery. It’s only this one I can’t. I’ve tried logging out and logging in again, using a different browser, using a different computer, etc., but nothing has worked! My sibling’s account works, but mine doesn’t. I really want to enter the contest. can someone help?

  7. twinners1 says:

    It should be open by now it seems, but on the Share Center it still won’t let me enter it! Will it be open later today? :3

    Is this contest the only way to get the fox? Will it also be available to buy?
