Hi, designers! Welcome to the third of four contests we'll be hosting here for the graphic designers of ZU!
This is a Small Works competition, meaning that if your piece is large enough that ZU automatically resizes it, it's too big (670x600 is the limit, I believe). After you've put together your image, host it on a site like imgur.com or min.us, and link us to it! Your image will be judged by three members who have much experience in designing graphics (both large and small).
Your only two requirements are size (no larger than 670x600) and theme, however ZU Rules apply to any image submitted and plagiarism will get you disqualified.
Your theme for this contest is...
NEONThe deadline for submission is August 11. The winners will be announced on August 18! Submit your graphics in this thread.
selected by the lovely Nicolette~
Our judges are: Malia, Strawberry, and myself!
- Originality: How creatively you've interpreted the theme
- Visual Impact: How well you've executed your idea, original or otherwise
- Technique/Aesthetics: How well your piece follows the basic principles of design, including depth, flow, and rule of thirds; alternatively, how pleasing it is to the eye/how good it looks overall.
- A profile award like the ones you get for the ZU Awards!
- A nice banner to wear around for a while!
- The ability to pick next contest's theme!
Designers, rev up your graphics cards and get to work!
