March/April Icon Contest

To amend Laurel's post about the monthly icon ideas, since she told everyone to send emails to me, and ultimately I have to deal with things, I should set the deadlines to fit my schedule.

The deadline for the March/April icon contest, as outlined in Laurel's post will be 11:59pm ET on Monday, February 12, 2007. If I don't receive any entries by then, I'll simply choose my own icons for March and April.

Here is a taste of what the templates will (roughly) look like:

Enter your icon for March
Your icon can go with this color scheme in March! Just submit it by 2/12/07 for a chance to win. For the latest news on the template schemes, click here. Or, learn about other contests.
Enter your icon for April
Your icon can go with this color scheme in April! Just submit it by 2/12/07 for a chance to win. For the latest news on the template schemes, click here. Or, learn about other contests.

Please note that the images will also be placed on the respective backgrounds for each month, so your icon will partially be judged on how well it fits the existing color schemes selected for each month (i.e., orange with purple is typically not a good idea). Also, bear in mind that images will be resized in Photoshop to be between 125 and 150 pixels wide (the same size as all the other ones so far), so simple images are just as good, if not better, than intricate ones.

Again, the deadline for March and April submissions is 11:59pm ET on Monday, February 12, 2007. Email all submissions to me (Tim). And if you don't have my email address, ask and ye shall receive.

Note: Because I haven't programmed the script yet, I can't promise that the winning entries will go up exactly on March 1 and April 1, respectively. Sorry.

The May/June contest will be announced in late-February 2007.

Lol, I just assumed that you would forward them all to me or w/e but yeah that works. I only chose the date I did because it was enough time before my Mississippi trip.

Anyways, let the contest begin.

Yes, but ultimately, I'm the one who'll be putting the winning icons into Photoshop and whatnot. And on my college schedule, I need a bit more leadtime.

I would do it if I had photoshop...and if I was the one with the templates saved on my computer...haha

Which explains why I have to do it. LOL.
