It is with great sadness, that we are announcing the end of our Daily Outfit Challenge feature - effective August 31, 2015.

Daily Outfit Challenge (aka DOC) feature has been around on IMVU for many years. Over the years it has gone through many changes to accommodate the old code supporting it and participant requests. We have a few very enthusiastic fashionistas engaging in these challenges. They create awesome outfits to match the daily themes we provide and proudly submit them as entries. We also have very hard-working DOC moderators and Customer Support team members who review all such entries and ensure they meet our guidelines.

Thank you to all DOC participants, moderators and voters!

In the past couple of years, participation in the contests has been declining rapidly - both in terms of number of contest entries and voters. Several reasons have contributed to the lower level of participation - most notably:

1) awarding winners promotional Credits as prizes
2) increasing popularity of Photo Stream where community members can share their creativity via shared photos
3) discontinuing of MVU2Go - our old mobile app - which was popular with voters
4) addition of outfits category in the Shop where Creators can make and sell outfits

As a result, we internally evaluated the benefits versus functionality of the feature in its current version and determined that it is in everyone's best interest to start anew with a different way that allows our users to share their passion for fashion with the IMVU community.

As such, we are discontinuing the current DOC feature effective August 31st. Our last challenge will be held that day. We are taking the learnings from this popular feature and will apply it to something that is more visible/accessible and for a wider audience in the future. We invite you to tell us what you liked about the feature, what you found challenging, and any ideas you have for providing an outlet for expressing your creativity. Your feedback is much appreciated and will be incorporated into future versions of this feature.

The last challenges:

They will continue as before with a new theme each day - but with some special extra prizes for the winners!

Also get ready for our very last challenge with its "All-time Favorites" theme to celebrate YOU - your individuality and your DOC history! For that day, you can submit your most favorite outfits with any theme - including ones that have won past challenges!

Thank you once again to all those who participated in the outfit challenges and shared their unique sense of style with us.

That's so sad, I loved looking through those creative outfits. I hope imvu will allow us a contest just like daily outfit contest, it was one of the best features many years ago

The good thing about DoC is that we could try on the contestants outfits, but in photo stream we can't do that

I usually remain a silent observer when it comes to DOC related discussions, but as one of the DOC group mods I feel the need to be present at an announcement such as this. The following is just my personal viewpoint so I'll keep it short.

There has been some discussion going on in the DOC group about disregarding the boycott and other related previous efforts to bring back all active artists, and create this gallery of DOC memories as a community for the last time together. The "All-time Favorites" theme is here to commemorate the artwork we have created and what our participation has established in DOC's history, so this is my proposal: by any chance would it be possible for IMVU to consider bringing the DOC back to how it operated in 2007, where people may submit multiple entries for display? For those who understand my intentions, this is not a method of increasing chances at earning prizes, as true artists earn their recognition beyond what IMVU itself will offer, but rather to be archived in the DOC during it's final days.

I'd love to see this escalated to the real decision makers and receive a response to know it was at least considered, meanwhile posting this out here I'd also like to hear what the community thinks. Some may agree or disagree, but nevertheless respect towards all opinions. Thank you.

I love this idea.

It only declined because you (IMVU) allowed so much cheating to go on for so long and pissed off the regular, decent contesters.

Shameful, you're killing it because you (IMVU) can't be bothered to police it properly.

I'm sure the cheaters will enjoy those last "special extra prizes".

I feel both sadness and relief. Bitter sweet end to what was once one of the best features of IMVU. Over the years we have all watched the DOC deteriorate. My list of reasons for this are very different from IMVU's.

Anonymity and artistic talent long ago sacrificed for basically no good reason. Gone are the days of entry after entry of awe inspiring art. Gone are the days of true Artists spending large blocks of credits in hopes of a fair playing field and a chance to showcase their amazing talent. (I exercised great restraint in my choice of wording above.)

As a community of Artists, be it raw new talent or seasoned veterans, we need to ban together and support one another. The independent group contests are the best means to that end. When run properly, it inspires content creators, boosts sales and provides an amazing creative platform.

Farewell DOC. <insert "SHARE" button here>
