Spring This! Wallpaper Competition

Posted 25 February 2002 - 12:18 PM

I'd like to go ahead and announce the Spring This! Wallpaper Competition which will begin on March 1st, 2002 (dream.in.code's 1 year anniversary)

The requirement for this competiton is to create an original desktop wallpaper with a Spring theme. The wallpaper should be created in the 4 most popular resolutions (800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, and 1600x1200) The logos of dream.in.code, StudioWhiz.com, and GuardianHosting must be included somehow in the wallpaper. These logos will be made available on the day the competition begins in a ZIP file linked from this thread.

All submissions must be submitted in this thread and should be thumbnails of the wallpaper with a link to the larger wallpapers, this is so things load fast :)

The winner of this competition will be selected by a panel of judges from dream.in.code, StudioWhiz, and GuardianHosting. Selection will be based on originality and creativity.

The prizes are as follows:

1st Place: One Year Free Hosting from GuardianHosting.com (Platinum Plan)
2nd Place: Subscription to XPreme Magazine + บ Gift Certificate to Amazon.com
3rd Place: บ Gift Certificate to Amazon.com

Keep an eye on this post for more details, the competition will end on April 1st, 2002

I could really use that ten bucks man. So my plan is that I have one month to get some design skills. Then all enter this amazing offered competition by the great dream in code staff. Thanks chris... time to start training camp. I am sad that my name isn't in red and I don't have a cool avatator. :(

Does the file have to be a certain bit size i.e. < 1MB
In other words does it have to be vector-based, or can we just do some stuff in photoshop?
