View Full Version : Sig Contest--Gauging interest

If we had another sigmakers contest, would people be interested? By this, I am talking about having a round every 3-4 days in which you have to make a sig banner with photoshop in a specific category. One round might be the All-Star game, another might be the 2008 Boston Celtics, Super Bowl XLII, etc. This is for all you Photoshop junkies out there to get a challenge and to show off your skills.

Ideally, I would want to have a qualifying round for any amount of people, and then the top 16 will go on. Then 8. Then 4. Then a showdown of 2 where only 1 sigmaker comes out standing. But obviously it will depend on the interest this receives.

So who would be up for a contest? Know that this would take at least 2 1/2 to 3 weeks so if you're going on vacation to the Smithsonian or you're going to cheer camp in a week, know that you would be disqualified.

I would also like to mention that you are strongly encouraged to make new sigs rather than using old ones. This obviously cannot be fully enforced, but this is a challenge to everyone who has Photoshop as much as anything. So take that challenge to try to make a new sig banner.

I will also need judges for the contest. I would be one, so I'm looking for either 2 or 4 other guys. I will accept the judges on reliability and steadiness on the forum. I can't have judges bailing on me after 1 round.

So if you are interested in this, just post in this thread and we'll try to get this thing off the ground. If you're interested in being a judge, please PM me.



Ok, so far these are the guys entering the contest.

I can be a judge if you want? I have had experience in this sorta thing before.

p.s. Before you stress bantx i wont be bias against you because you are a douche, i will judge solely on the quality of the sigs.

No offense to the guys that signed up, but you're going to need a lot more quality sig makers to make this thing good. As of right now, bantx would run away with this easily. Again no offense to the other guys, but bantx is the best sigmaker that posts regularly on here. If you got guys like jkpigskin, Mockalicious, thule, ATL, and some others to enter it would be a lot better.

I haven't seen Mock and JK in a LONG-ASS time. I'll give this to Bantx or Hawk right off the bat.

No one wants you to judge.

Vikes is just being kind. He'd rather let someone else have the throne instead of him just grabbing it out of their hands. Talk about modesty.

I probably won't join this as the winner is generally the person who tells the most people to vote for him, but I would help judge if you decide to go that way.

There's definitely a spot for you. I'm hoping to hear from a couple other sig makers that I have asked to join.

By the way, I would much rather have people join the contest than ask to be judges. Don't worry, I'm way ahead of you guys wanting to make sure that people with sig making experience are the judges. I will definitely be able to take care of that. Fair judging is one of the most important things to me in this contest, right next to getting as many of the best sigmakers on the board as possible.
