Note: This contest is now over. Winners will be announced after Monday.
Hey folks, just wanted to update everyone and make sure that we were clear on some of the finer points of the contest.
You can only submit one entry. Whatever entry is your first entry is the only entry that will be considered for the contest. The only change you can make to the logo is to resize it. We really want people to incorporate the logo into the artwork, not change it.
I know there has been some confusion, so for those people that already created entries that changed the logo, instead of mixing it into a design, will be added to a special category when the contest is over that will get honorable mention, but won’t be eligible for the prizes. The good news is that there is still over two weeks left in the contest to submit your official entry! So if you don’t like your first entry or you made an invalid entry just remove the tag “zazzlelogocontest2007” from that entry and make a new one that you tag for the contest. Anyone can add a new entry and there is plenty of time to do it, just make sure that you only have one entry and that it adheres to the contest rules.
Zazzle’s got a new look and a new logo! So it’s time to show your design skillZ by using the new logo to make great merchandise! Take one of these hi-res versions of the logo and mix it into any kind of trendy, crazy or awesome design you can think of (no gross stuff please). Once you’re done, you’ll have the perfect entry into the Zazzle Pimp Our Logo contest! Basically we want to see how you can use the Zazzle logo with your design to make the best take-the-cake contest entry! Need some inspiration? Check out some of these entries to see what other Zazzlers are doing.
The submission deadline is 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, October 18, 2007.
So what do I get?
For the mac daddy, A+ designer, we are going to feature his/her design on the homepage for a whole week! And if that wasn’t enough we’re going to throw in a Wacom Cintiq (The Cadillac of digital writing tablets, a $2,500 value) to boot.
(here is a video of a Cintiq at work!)
2nd place gets $1,000 and 3rd gets $500! So get started customizing the Zazzle logo now. And for all the New Zazzlers out there, read below about how to join!
How to enter
- Create a Zazzle account here
- Get a hi-res version of our logo
- Create your design and place it on a product (can be any product type … t-shirts, mugs, posters, stamps, you decide!). Make your product
- Publish your product to the Zazzle marketplace with the tag “zazzlelogocontest2007″ (find out how to tag your product). If you have already published your design prior to the start of this contest, simply tag it “zazzlelogocontest2007″ to submit it.
- Voila! (this doesn’t count as a step), see how easy that was? I knew you could do it.
To help Zazzle to decide the best entries into this contest we’ve got two distinguished artists to judge your designs. See below to read a little about each artist.
