Thread: Holiday Logo Contest 2013 - The Comeback Tour

    Holiday Logo Contest 2013 - The Comeback Tour

    THE RULES HAVE CHANGED, PLEASE READ.

    The Massassi Temple Annual Holiday Logo Contest


    As per the usual, it's time for a contest!

    Due to waning interest, I've decided to let this contest decide the fate of future holiday logo contests. If this contest receives submissions from 8 or more users, I will continue the contest next year. Otherwise, I'll consider it dead, and only run existing logos next year. So it's up to you all to decide whether tradition continues.

    Also, I've decided instead of avatars, which are a little less valuable anymore, I've decided to put real money into it.

    The winner of the contest, decided by vote, will win the pool of money. Where's the pool of money coming from? Anyone who wants to pitch in to see a solid contest. I'm throwing $10 in to start. Anyone who wishes to add to that pool, send a PERSONAL DONATION to coolmatt@sorrowind.net on PayPal. This avoids fees.

    Contest Rules:

    To submit a logo for the contest, just follow this simple set of guidelines:

    1. The logo's dimensions must be 384x154 (the size of our current logo)
    2. The logo must be compressed decently in JPG, GIF, or PNG format.
    3. The logo may be animated. This is CHANGED.
    4. The logo must contain "Massassi Temple" in some form.
    5. Quality over quantity! Your name will be displayed under it so do your best!
    6. It must be festive, tying in with one of the many holidays in December!
    7. Star Wars themes are highly suggested, otherwise the logo may be rejected.

    Note that since this contest has real money in it, I am going to enforce the rules more strictly than before. Most issues stem from images not being decently compressed. Do not send me a 100% JPG image that weighs in at 1MB. Do not send me BMPs. I will outright reject your logo this time, instead of doing your job for you.

    Animated GIFs should be tasteful, and not massive. The larger the GIF, the better that logo must be in order to make up for it.

    Submission Deadline is December 24th @ 11:59PM EDT.

    Voting begins December 26th.

    Winner is called December 31st.



    Although you may email them to me, I highly recommend uploading them (without attaching to forums) in this thread.

    Current Prize Pool: $30

    So I just realized that, while I've been fairly good about making a logo every year, normally ISB-related, it's been some time since I've made a NeS-related logo. I'm going to have to rectify that...

    If Antony wins, I will vote for Stop Kony just to **** with him.
    If you think the waiters are rude, you should see the manager.

    Isn't it my turn to win this year? I think the pattern is win, take a year out, win, year out etc.

    I wonder if this will turn out like the Level Contests with a catillion "I'MAGONNA CONTRIBOOT" posts and, like, 7 actually doing it.

    My logo is the standard by which all future logos will be judged. I AM CHAMPION

    Apparently your logo sets such a high standard, it cannot be seen by mortal eyes.

    Good concept, but you could pull it off nicely with only 20-40 frames.
    And when the moment is right, I'm gonna fly a kite.

    okay I've not made too many gifs so I'll work on it

    Make it pause on the last frame for a while too, it shouldn't increase the size at all. Do that and I'll accept it.

    While it'll likely be at least a couple weeks before I can submit something, I didn't want to wait that long to up the prize pool.

    For now, an extra $10 should now be available for CM to add to the total.

    Plot twist: That's Tracer's finished product, and will makeeveryone think it'll be an animated image to reveal what's next.

    Why? This just goes to show he can't afford anything more than an online resource. Then again, the old MS GIF Animator and GiMP are free programs so I guess no one here has an excuse! :p

    Except for me who can't find inspiration at the moment... :s

    Also, if someone can make a good .gif of the following, they can take the credit. I just want to see it done.

    So the whole "not attaching images to the forum" thing confused me, so I went back and just did what the other people seemed to do with attaching their logos. Also, here's the text to the Star Wars crawl I made for those too lazy to click the link:

    Episode XXMIII
    A NEW YEAR

    It is a dark time for those
    at the MASSASSI TEMPLE.
    Although the forum still
    stirs, several thousand
    members have declared
    their intentions to leave the
    community.


    In a stunning move, the
    fiendish site administrator,
    COOL MATTY, wagered a
    lucrative prize money pot
    as his ultimatum for
    holiday cheer among its
    members.


    Faced with certain doom,
    the small band of Massassi
    posters struggle to save
    the tradition for a new year
    and spread goodwill to
    all...
