Competition Ideas

Recommended Posts

Would anyone be interested in an 'Object of the Fortnight' competition?

 

Basically, every two weeks, you'd just create an object. No background, backdrop, nor scene. (if you really wanted, you could post a second image with a background, but it wouldn't be part of the competition entry).

 

Ideally, the object would be something without too much complexity in its structure.

e.g. banana, Christmas tree ornament, CD, book, wood sign, mug

That seems like a good idea for a competition. Perhaps after the competition, participants could discuss how especially novel results were achieved.

Anyone willing to step forward to be competition host? Toe-head?

Sure, I'm willing to be the host.

I'm all for making it a learning experience. Obviously that would be optional thought; we don't want to make the 'barrier to entry' too stringent.

Is there a reason that the Image Battles were stopped? It didn't require a host, just participants and voters.

People lost interest I guess. When I archived the forum topics for the Battles, they hadn't been active for several years. (A single sporadic post every few months, if that much).

Personally, I never likes the Image Battles, because they typically compared two very different images. An "apples to orange" kind of thing.

 

If people want to do another type of Image Battle, we can of course create a new one.

I've been having that idea since I made those 3 referencial covers in my gallery.

Basically, it's a Hotline Miami covermaking competition, I gave it a name - "TapeWork".

 

Well, in 2 weeks you have to make an on-topic cover (yes, topics, just like OotF and SOTW have), the cover should be 34x57 (not 57x34), PNG, well you can double/triple/etc the size for a possibility to see but make sure you leave an imgur link to the cover in the original size since I'm gonna save those and see if they look cool in Hotline Miami 2.

extra points if you hue shade

A number of years ago, we had a 'Logo/Banner' Competition. Your idea is very similar.

 

I think a Cover/Poster competition would be a good idea.

 

Some examples of possible topics:

- Film Noir Private Detective (movie poster)

- Space Travel RPG (video game poster)

- Harmonica Jams (music album cover)

 

 

Examples of real-world covers/posters:

BioShock Remastered (video game cover)

UHF (movie poster)

Website banners? Different market/service/product for each competition, e.g. websites for pizza delivery, electronic games shop, web radio etc.

I like this idea. 

Maybe you could add a book cover into it  ... someone throws in the title of the book and it's made around that ?

That's another cool idea.  Both bigger canvases to work on which is nice

 

The Logo competition seems like decades ago.  Jeez where is time going
