Sure, we are currently struggling mightily to get the hardcover book on press. It's close, which means if things go well we will hit a July release date for both the Campaign hardcover and the Southlands Bestiary. That's July for project backers--public release is more likely an early August ship date.
The project exclusives I won't guess on.
Supposing we were not selected for the final cut; are we able to post our entries elsewhere, say a personal blog article or on these boards?
Nope, the contest rules are pretty clear that submitting a creature to the contest grants publication rights to Kobold Press.
That said, it isn't over yet. We're hoping to write a couple little spotlights on some of the other interesting creatures (after the voting is done, appearing in April), so it might appear there.
Also, anyone who is especially eager to keep their creature off the Kobold blog should send me a note. I'm happy to revert the rights.

Just curious, does anyone know if they will add this race to the Hero Lab software as a PC race and or update the Lizardfolk NPC race with the stat's in this one?
We've done 5 sets of Hero Lab files so far. It's certainly possible that the Kobold crew will generate HL files for the Advanced Races series as well (Not right away, but it's on the list).
Could not be prouder of this series by RPG Superstar Mike Welham! It starts off with a shout to a very traditional style giant, the thursir, who is keen on working at the forge and making armor and weapons for his larger kin.
The thursir might not be much bigger than ogres, but they are smarter, more skilled, and more interesting in every way. Check them out!
I clearly should have checked in on this thread sooner. Questions submitted on the KoboldPress.com site get answered faster, FWIW.
Is there any rules on what can be submitted? Does it have to be something brand new, or a conversion of something from a previous edition/other system?
Great question, and yes, it must be something new. Any conversion from another edition or other game systems will be disqualified.

Since you are doing this, does that mean that WotC has finally released some sort of OGL/GSL/etc?
WotC has not released any sort of open license that I am aware of. I think that news would be all over the net.
Can affidavit be in digital form?
A digital document has legal status in the United States, which is where we're holding our contest, so we'll accept it. We are not accepting paper submissions of any kind.
Thanks for the interest, and I'll check back again tomorrow.
Time to celebrate the best in new, upcoming talent for a new edition of D&D!
Kobold Press has launched a 5th Edition D&D monster contest. Entries are due February 23, prizes and payment are awarded for the winner and the winning monster will be illustrated and shared with 5th Edition gamers.
Advanced Races: Ravenfolk did just get an update recently, and they make good scoundrel-villains as well as good PCs.
Gearforged is an excellent option, for a fairly high-powered campaign (they get a lot of good immunities). Kobold Press is working on updating Advanced Races: Gearforged to include scaling power levels, in case your game is not high on the starting power level.
Thanks! It's the first time ever for a Kobold Press book at the Escapist.
We had an amazing group of designers, backers, and artists. The book is up against a Paizo title in the same category (so I don't think we'll win the category), and yet it is great that people noticed just how well this book turned out.
