The Paint.NET Holiday Competition

A Collection of Holiday Festivities



Whether you celebrate Christmas or Chanukah - or no holiday at all - the winter time is a time of celebration, fun, festivities, and spending time with family and friends. So, as I feel that the Paint.NET Community is a family of its own I have created a competition to celebrate these special holidays. Presenting the 2008 Paint.NET Holiday Competition!

The Competitions

To honor the different styles of artwork and flavor of this community family, there are various competitions to partake in! Here is a quick list of the competitions:

  • [*:2pb43hql]The Gingerbread Man
    [*:2pb43hql]The Eight Days of Signatures
    [*:2pb43hql]A Paintbrush Carol
    [*:2pb43hql]The Paint.NET Giver

The Gingerbread Man

The Gingerbread Man is a competition not restricted by size, but restricted by your own creations! In this fun competition you goal is to create any holiday symbol without the use of any stock images! Whether it be a Christmas Angel, or a simple glass ornament, this competition should test your very straight forward Paint.NET skills! This competition is a representation of the Large Art of the Week Competition

The Eight Days of Signatures

This competition is for those saavy signature creators out there! Your goal is to create the perfect signature to celebrate the holiday of which you participate in! All stocks must be linked to, but other than that you are only bound to what you mind can create! (And the Paint.NET Forum Signature Demensions ;) ) This competition is a representation of the Signature of the Week Competition

A Paintbrush Carol

In this competition, your goal is to create a holiday card to any member of these forums. What goes on the card, the artwork, and the text is all up to you! So, what are you waiting for? Send your wishes to that other forum member :DThis competition is a representation of the Monthly Skinning Competition

How to Enter

Entering is simple! Simply post the image in this thread and make a reference to which competition you are submitting it to. On January 1st, 2009 I will post the winners of each of the three above competitions. Perhaps there will be some reward for the winners ;)

The Paint.NET Giver

This competition is a very special one, and as such requires seperate explanation. This competition cannot be won simply with a paintbrush, but with your giving! The way to win this one is simple: give. Then, over the course of the next few days, other users can nominate you and you yourself are encouraged to nominate somebody else! The winner of this competition will recieve a very special signature and avatar as designed by myself. So, let the gift of giving begin!

Happy Holidays and Good Luck to All!

My christmas card to all you guys- enjoy!


I used a photograph of my xmas tree but not for the actual tree, for the swirly lights. Here's a cool tip, take a photo of your christmas tree and shake it about before the shutter closes and you get the perfect example of using shutter to your advantage, especially like my tree which has only one colour of lights. Anyway. Rant over.
