Legend-of-Korra

change is coming!
Hello all,

So far we've received some lovely submissions to our contest due April 15th. Keep it up because I'm really impressed with what's been submitted. This has been our most well received contest in years so let's keep up the momentum. If you are interested in competing, you can look at the previous blog. I am not judging this contest, I'm just organizing and hosting it so I'll be competing in it along with you guys ^-^.

I have a challenge for you. If we can fill up the Couples folder by the end of 2017, that would be amazing. We are getting closer and closer to that goal everyday so my challenge is to fill up that folder by the end of this year. The Korra folder was filled up last June which was a great milestone for the group so let's continue with the other nearly completed folders.

On a more bad news kind of note, Turf Wars has been pushed back to the end of July due to time constraints and deadlines Irene Koh is required to meet. The team is working very hard to complete the much anticipated comic of the summer and they wanted everyone to know that they need to be patient because it will be well worth the wait. If you are anxious to see some of Turf Wars right now, you can check out the previews Miss Koh has been providing on her tumblr. Also, you can see other Turf Wars extras by watching the full Emerald City Comic Con panel which Koh appeared in.

For the cosplayers, if you live in the Anaheim area, California in general or like to travel, Wondercon is coming up this April so get your cosplay on because there will be panels and meet ups for fans of all ages. If you are a fan of high quality cons but don't like the huge crowds SDCC draws, Wondercon is defiantly the event for you. If you are cosplaying at Wondercon, send us your LOK or ATLA cosplay, we'd love to see it.

Still angry at the Kids Choice Awards for frequent mistreatment of the Avatar franchise and Nickelodeon's mistreatment overall? Let it out at our summer contest which you yourselves get to vote on the winner. Welcome to the Korra Choice Awards. More details on the summer contest will be posted when it gets closer.

If yo have any Korra/Avatar related news and or upcoming events we have not covered, note us and we will feature your news in our next news blog.

As always, thank you for checking out our group, Korra is the avatar and YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT!
You voted for it, now you got it.

Prompt: Women in the Avatar franchise have been a huge part of what makes the series truly wonderful. Strong and independent female characters who put others before themselves are why we should be seeing more females in action figure lines right? Well Mattel doesn't think so. We are going to show them how wrong they are by celebrating the incredible women of Avatar.

Rules: you may draw any female character or multiple characters and show us in your art what makes that particular character a symbol of female empowerment. you may use any medium except MS Paint, dA Muro, screenshot, photography manipulation, wallpaper, and pencil line art. These and stolen and hate art are strictly prohibited. The staff will select a winner based on creativity, originality and the overall message of the piece. You may submit multiple works however we will judge the one we deem to be your very best.you may team up with othe artists so long as they all get full credit. Administrators are allowed to compete so long as they remain non biased in the winner selection. Anyone caught breaking the rules will be suspended from the group for a certain time period. Submit all works to the contest folder for judging. You are permitted to use a previous piece if you think it fits the theme of the contest.

To make things a little more interesting, instead of three winners, we will only select one winner and one runner up so participate and give it all you got. If only one user participates, no prizes will be awarded.

Grand prize: 500 points. Three month premium membership. Submission in featured folder. Three cake badges.

Runner up: 100 points, two cake badges, submission in featured folder.


All artwork must be submitted by April 15th(Korra Day)


Good luck and have fun :wave:
So today is it. It's the big journal, here we go. Happy Avatar Day

let's get to Avatar. We will post the details on the Women of Avatar contest tomorrow and since you voted for it, we expect to see some submissions. We recently got two lovely pieces and after tomorrow, we expect and hope to see more. But now let's all discuss why we are here on this group together


Avatar, a look back at the greatest animation franchise in Paramount history.

Ah Paramount. The oldest working film studio that runs its base of operations in Hollywood. They are the guys behind Nickelodeon which was going downhill in the 2000's mostly because of Spongebob's decline. And then came this random show about guys doing kung fu and we all say down and watched and we were hooked. It was not like anything Paramount had been producing at the time and it was an underrated award winner. The guys that brought this to you, you know them, everyone loves them. They brought us all here and we are kind of like a family.

It's no question that Avatar has some of the most beloved characters of the modern day. We have happy go lucky Aang, reasonable Sokka, devoted Katara, stubborn and sasssy Toph, lovable but hot headed Zuko and of course tea making Iroh. In korra we got a hotheaded sass of an avatar, strong willed Mako, adorable Bolin, independent Asami and the lovable Airbender kids plus a new colorful cast of characters that brought this group in particular into existence. While we are a Korra group, we wouldn't be here  if Avatar never happened. Avatar as a franchise has had some wonderful female representation and so much of this fandom is female. Women characters stand up for themselves, break tradition, sacrifice for loved ones and prove that women can be what they want to be. It's the women that truest are the heart of this show. We even have some fantastic female villanesses like the cunning Azula and the fascist Kuvira to name a few. The villains of Avatar have been excellent foils to our merry band of benders in both shows and push our heros to fight for what they truly want in life. But perhaps the most interesting of the villains is everyone's favorite ex villain brought to life by the wonderful Dante Basco. Zuko starts out as a straight up one dimensional character but grows into the most three dimensional character on the show. This is what great writers do. They give us dynamic characters that are flawed and relatable. The characters of the Avatar franchise also have broke social ground with Korra and Asami being the second animated LGBT couple in an animated show for kids, with Ruby and Sapphire being the first. Both shows broke so much ground and that's a big part of why we love them.
The visuals and sets in these shows are nothing short of beautiful from ember island to republic city. All the sets are amazing and serve to enhance the story and the world building coming from the characters. Then there is the music which consists of an Asian score by Jeremy Zuckerman and it can range from happy and free to haunting and depressing with some of the most beautiful music ever. Music makes the magic and I dare you to listen to the Korra soundtrack right now, you won't be disappointed. With realism in themes and rich Asian inspired culture, the Avatar world is truly one of the most engaging and sublime animated worlds ever created. It's not perfect but it holds up very well. The care into this franchise is amazing and it's what brought us here together. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Kids Choice Awards where our shows never got proper representation. So today let's give our franchise the love it deserves. Today we celebrate Avatar Day.

Happy 12 years Avatar, it has been a wild ride and hopefully will be one for years to come. :hug:. Thank you everyone for being a part of this fandom and a part of our group. And thank you to all the hard working people who brought Avatar to the screen.
