G&P Emblem Creation Competition

Because we'll do anything for activity all up in here. Yo.

Super cool introduction ------------------------
Hey guys! Now let me say something right away, you don't need to be a talented graphic artist for this! It's all about your ideas and how c r e a t i v e you are! The competition is all about making an emblem for our favourite mix of artistic mediums; Graphics & Photography! Now in this competition, you will be attempting to create an emblem which your very gracious host shall request to be uploaded by our even more valiant higher staff members. This emblem that you create can relate to either graphics or it can also be photography related. Or even you're super innovative, it can relate to both Graphics and Photography and the section as a whole! The possibilities are endless. Now, let's get on to the nitty gritty information you must read before entering, because if you don't your work might go to waste!

Super uncool but important rules ------------------------
  • Your entry must be your own design, but of course you are permitted to use images from the world wide web.
  • You must post an emblem icon which is 80px x 80px in size, coupled with a description and title of the emblem.
  • The emblem and its concept, idea and aim must all relate to the Graphics and Photography section.
  • Your entry must be posted within the allocated time limit and may be changed before the time limit is up.
  • One entry per person, but remember, you may change it after posting.
What you can win and how it is chosen ------------------------

The best thing about this competition is that I'm allowing up to 3 winners. To win, you must be creative and think of some clever designs. The winner(s) will then be chosen by me at the end of the time period. The time period will run until the 31st of October, and your entries must be finalized by then. Up to 3 people can win this, so it means that if your emblem is really clever and original you are definitely in with a chance to win this competition one way or another!

The all important prize ------------------------

If you are lucky enough to be chosen as a winner, below is your prize!

Eye for an Emblem

"You have en eye for emblems! You received this for making a really creative and interesting emblem for the Graphics and Photography emblem creation competition. Well done. EmblemEmblemEmblem."

And that's not all!

You will also receive the honour of having your emblem, its title and its description uploaded to the site, and can be handed out to members who meet the criteria when posting in Graphics and Photography.

Good luck guys!

DEADLINE: 31st of October 2011

Like I said in the VM, I'm definitely in, as soon as I can choose one of the many ideas I have. xP

Probably a question that benefits us all; is there any character limits for the title and description of the emblems so we know not if we are a little over?

For reference, the longest emblem description is "A role reversal, that's the password, so come make a friend. it's topsy-turvy to give mercy to the guilty man. we love you faking, cause you make the effort to pretend. like a gladiator craves the blood of his spectators. those days i'd stumble in the dark, angels give me back my spot. the wrong girl trapped in the right place. i've had enough, i'd dust it off and wipe my blood on you." so I doubt you'll have character limit problems.

And the longest titles I believe are "What could be inside? It will take a little time.." and "Shipping Debates Valentine's Banner Contest Winner", both 50 characters, so I bet that's the limit. It's also worth noting I think that html is acceptable in emblems if you want an extra flair.

But this sounds fun, I plan to enter :3

I wouldn't worry too much about character limits, if I like your idea, and you end up winning, there's a chance I'll be reviewing it somewhat so that your description and title is suitable before being uploaded anyway. So don't worry as I say.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys can whip up!

I guess I'll be the first to enter mine :P The image might change but the idea won't because I really feel like there should be more emblems relating to this in creative sections.


5-Star Reviewer
You've been around the block a few times, and are always willing to share that experience with others in your critique. If I had to review your reviewing, I'd give it 5 stars!

HEY! My idea was in principal the same, different title and description and stuff.
Gav, can we enter the same idea as others, or should we try and come up with a different one?

Hmm, well I think it would be better to have different ideas, but if you think your interpretation of the idea is better then feel free to. I mean, it's up to you. Whatever you think is good enough to win I guess!

Title: Graphics and Photography Grand Poobah!
Description: Your contributions to the Graphics and Photography forum help make the place one of the most artistic and inspirational places on the web! Keep up the good work!

Like somebody else said, this is a purely for fun entry.

I apologize, I don't have photoshop on this laptop...I had a really good idea. Whatever.

EDIT:

Updated the picture.

Though I might as well give it a go, nothing to loose is there.

It's not a job, it's a career

You've done a good job moulding these young minds. You've taught some A grade students.

It would be given to people who go out of there way to help other members and teach them techniques. Also for people who make a lot of tutorials and stuff.

So, all the good ideas were taken, thought I'd get this one in since battles seem to be firing up a bit more recently! :D

Battle General


An authority amongst graphics battles. This person can be found as the starter and entrant to many graphics battles, across all mediums.

Just to people who start a few battles, and frequently enter battles set up by others. Thought it'd be nice to encourage more battles! :D

Insight for aesthetics? You got it! You're such a connoisseur when it comes to criticizing others' work!

Fitting for gifted criticism g&p posts, especially those who point out things that everyone else overlooked.

I have no skills in graphics, but I'll join, Wynaut?


Adaptive One
You certainly are one to change your style to meet current themes and trends. And you're not bad at it either.

Lots of people did MLP stuff when it came to PC, so this is what I'm basing this off.

This is my entry, I'm glad I found out about the competition while I could still participate. I don't know about competitions in the G&P section, but this would maybe be distributed to people with detailed/enlightening work.

The right eyes


The many different particles in your work always lighten it up. You sure have the right eye for detail!


This was fun. Good luck everyone!

Smear-tag-cular!

You make lots of wonderful and amazing tags. Even Smeargle approves that they are Smear-tag-cular!

Here's my entry which is purely for fun, I doubt I'll even go near almost-winning, yeah so. Enjoy? xD

G&P Graybeard

Your magical presence has been felt around G&P for quite a while. Thanks for sticking around!

Given out to those members who:
1) Have been around for a long time.
2) Have managed to keep their galleries alive for a long period of time. A year or two, maybe?
3) Have been really, really active members of G&P.

Not sure about the title or the caption. I'm not good at this stuff, really. :<

Oh wow! I'm honoured! C:

Anyways, congratulations to everybody who got runner up / winner, but also to everybody who entered!
Honestly, I didn't really expect there to be a whole heap of entries, especially by people who don't really frequent Graphics and Photography as much as others, but there were heaps of wonderful entries and ideas! Hope to see you guys more around these parts! C:
