The 2011 Graphic Contest
(Approved by Sweet May)
ello, contestants.As you may have guessed, this is a contest. A graphic contest, if you will. I am pupintheturd, I will be your host, judge and your complaints person.
will also explain how we run this. We will have rounds; the amount of rounds is dependent on the amount of participants. Each round you will have to give us two graphics: an icon and a banner.
We will judge both graphics from 1 to 10 on each of these points:
- Following of the theme/requirements. (Have you followed the theme and the necessary requirements?)
- Appeal and expertise (Appeal: how does it look? Is it nice to look at?) (Expertise: light source, blending of the render, render choice (solely on image quality)... etc.)
- Originality (Originality doesn't stay un-rewarded)
ho are "we"', you ask? We are the judges and creators of this contest:
t the end of every round, we will count the amount of points earned. The person who has the lowest amount of points will have to leave. We will continue this way until we have reached a conclusion; that is, this year's winner.
o make sure this game doesn't become boring, there are special rounds.
Normal Round: The most common round; ONE icon and ONE banner.
Wallpaper Round: Instead of an icon and a banner, you'll only make a wallpaper.
Banner Round: Instead of an icon and a banner you'll have to make TWO banners (No icon).
Icon Round: Instead of an icon and a banner you'll have to make TWO icons (No banner).
Collaboration Round: You will be teamed up in pairs and each pair has to make an icon and a banner. Be wise when deciding on 'who does what'.
Require Mental Round: Extreme requirements will be given. You will only have to make ONE banner or icon (depends on the requirements)
When we notify you about what round it'll be we will boldface and use size 3 on the text.
