The Foundry Medals Competition
Now that the Winter Olympics speed games bonanza has ended, it's time to start thinking about all those medals that will be dished out over the next couple of weeks! To capitalise on medal-fever, the foundry will be running a competition to design medals/awards for the soon-to-be-inaugurated Foundry Roll of Honour.
In addition to the existing Official CC Achievement Awards (medals) available for foundry contributions, there will be 5 new Roll of Honour awards. The Foundry Roll of Honour Medals will be recognised in an Official Roll of Honour Thread, but will not be Official CC Medals. The Foundry Roll of Honour will stand in perpetuity as a Hall of Fame; and while medals will not be pinned to profiles, the recipients of an award will be able to decorate their forum signature or avatar should they so desire.
* You may choose to include alternative images for the existing awards (Cartographic Achievement/Cartographic Contest Achievement), although these will not form part of the official competition.
- Your entry should comprise 5 separate images - one for each of the new Foundry Roll of Honour awards. *
- Your medals/awards need not conform to existing CC medal styles. *
- Submitted images should be 30px wide and 45px tall. Larger versions (60x90 px) should also be available.
- Save your designs as PNG images, with a transparent background if appropriate.
- Host your files using Photobucket or some other file sharing program, and PM a link to MrBenn by 23:59 GMT on March 8, 2010.
- The Foundry Staff will select a shortlist of finalists, and a one-week public voting period will be held to determine the winner.
Just to remind folk that there is one week left before the closing date. One entry is already in - I'm hoping there will be some more before the week is out...
