Contest for a 40K Online Logo!
« on: October 22, 2008, 10:13:27 PM »
Bored of the 40k Online in text at the top of the forum?
Tired of seeing the Simple Machine Forum logo that looks so cool next to the boring text name?
Think you are artistically talented?


Then come, make a contribution to this site!
Keep 40Konline looking fresh!


We're looking for a logo for the 40k Online header.
Actually, we're looking for two.
logo 1- 30px high, between 250 and 400px wide (no wider than 400px!)
This logo should be designed for the dark theme style we use now... but designs that are portable (i.e. transparent PNG or GIFs) will get "bonus" points.

The winning logo1 will be placed at the top of the forum, where the 40k Online text currently is.

logo 2- 405x182
This logo should be designed for a light theme style... again, portable/transparent designs will get bonus points.

The winning logo2 will be placed at the top of the forum, for the new lighter coloured theme.

Although we are always willing to accept artwork submissions, this contest will run through November 30, 2008.
Staff will then have a closed vote on the submissions and the winner(s) will be announced the week of December 8


What do you win?   Well, nothing except bragging rights that YOUR artwork is used on 40k Online.

rules?
1- see size limitations above.
2- no copyrighted images, trademarked content or other use of content that is not your own. Artwork must be an original work and can not violate GW or any other company's or individual's terms of use or intellectual property clause.
3- Once submitted, the artwork becomes the property of 40k Online. You agree that 40k Online is granted all use and ownership rights to the artwork.



If this contest goes well, we may have future contests (possibly with actual prizes) for artwork to be used in other parts of the site.

I am thinking that the winner might receive the coveted "Yes, I made the logo" custom title as well. :)

It's a shame we had to loose the previous skin, as I rather liked seeing the logo I made up there. Incidently, Raine never gave me my reward for winning the last logo contest, heck, I don't even know what it is he was going to do anyway :P.

we didn't lose the previous skin...   it is merely outdated and would have to be re-vamped to work with the new version of the software.

 Making logos... fun! Now let me get down with ideas...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

Enter the submissions here. They may always be moved elsewhere at a later date. So, for the time being, if you've got something then put it here.

I did not specify for a reason....    we don't specifically care!

We'll take any and all entries and have the staff vote and critique them.

Also, note that you are not limited to one entry.  If you are so inclined, and have 4 ideas, then submit 4 different images!

Okay, thanks. I just wanted to be sure if there were requirements, that I would be working within them. I'll just keep at it then.

Also, did you get those PMs I sent you?

Right no, my votes are for Snike, especially the sci-fi looking one, and the red & black firey one.

The final decision will be made by staff and not by an open vote.  :)

Yes... please let me make this clear.  This is not an open vote. Once we have a collection, we will have a STAFF vote, in closed forum.

Please do not clutter this thread with "I like this" or "I like that".


Hmmm.... actually, I am going to start a different thread for posting the actual submissions. I'll leave this thread for questions.
