User of the Month Avatar Contest

Post by WQ Coordinator » Wed Jun 01, 2011 12:24 pm

The time has come for a new User of the Month avatar! While we've loved Canidae's avatar, we thought it might be fun to try something new. If you're interested in creating a new avatar for the User of the Month, create an original avatar no larger than 100x100 pixels and save the file with your username in the title. (For example, I would title my entry something like "WQ Coordinator's avatar contest entry.jpg".) Then e-mail your submission to art@wolfquest.org with "UotM Avatar Contest" as the subject of your e-mail, on or before June 21. Any contest entries e-mailed to me rather than to art@wolfquest.org, or e-mailed after June 21st, will not be included in this contest.

Contest rules:
  • only one avatar submission per person
  • avatars must consist of original artwork, with only one exception: you may use WolfQuest screenshots and/or the WolfQuest logo as part of the avatar. You may not use someone else's artwork, including lineart and photographs.
  • only the following file types will be accepted: jpg, gif, bmp, or png.
How the winner will be chosen:
On June 22nd, the top 10 (or so) avatars (chosen by the moderators) will be posted with a hidden poll. Everyone may vote for their favorite UotM avatar until June 30th. Each person may only vote once and may not change their vote, and avatars will be posted without the artists' usernames. After the poll has ended, the artists' usernames will be revealed and the new User of the Month will be announced, wearing the winning User of the Month avatar.

Please follow all contest rules and instructions carefully, and good luck! If you don't want to create an avatar, you can still participate in this contest by voting on your favorite avatar between June 21st and (the morning of) June 30th. (The poll will be listed as another stickied topic in this forum.) If you have any questions about the contest, feel free to post them here.

Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!

This type of contest sounds absolutely awesome, although the current UotM avatar is great... A new one with the 100x100 base wouldn't be a bad idea either. xD

Took the words right out of my mouth, I wouldn't mind entering this either. Better get my tablet ready~
