Background Contest for Graphics

It is I, the Graphics main! And I want to have a contest...

 

There's no theme for this. Just show me what you've got.

 

Requirements:

  • Inner background (728*486).
  • The word "Graphics" somewhere on the inner background. Preferably the center.
  • The inner background must be usable without the use of CSS.
  • Matching outer background (2560*1440 or larger).
  • Matching button color.
  • Don't include "Type Here" or "Visitors" or anything similar on it.
  • Be of decent quality.
  • Give credit where credit is due.

Remember that these are requirements. Here is a definition of the word "requirement." If you do not follow these, your entry is disqualified. That includes resolution.

 

Optional stuff:

  • Description: "The place to discuss, buy, and sell graphics." It must be done exactly this way if you choose to use it. Do not use any variant or any other description.
  • CSS: It must abide by CSS Guidelines. You may only use it to add to your background or for positioning images. Nothing must be removed. An example of this would be Rant's Cutting Edge which you cannot use for this contest unless you are Rant himself.
  • Collaborations: Sure, but choose how the prize will be split beforehand if you somehow win.
  • Multiple entries: Yes, but you can only win once.
  • Sometimes we get bored of the winners and want to use one of those that did not win. We are going to assume that you are okay with this if you post your entry. If you do not want us to use yours if you do not win, just say so in your post. It will not have any effect on how well you do.

 

Prize Holder: Me because I can.

Judges: Me and any Graphics staff that would like to judge that will not be entering (limited spots, though).

Deadline: April 8, 2016 at 6:00 PM EST. This can be extended.

Prizes:

  1. First place will receive 6000 xats.
  2. Second place will receive 3000 xats.
  3. Third place will receive 1750 xats.

Prizes will increase as more people enter. That means you should totally advertise this so that we get as many entries as we can.

Seriously, I'm thinking about having a total of 10,000 xats in prizes.

 

Donations:

  • Azaza (12141214) - 2000 xats
  • Andre (112633) - 1631 xats
  • Sydney (52656191) - 1111 xats

 

Here are some resources courtesy of @Rant.

 

I'll edit this as needed.

 

Please don't post "good luck" or anything similar. Those posts will be deleted to keep this thread clean. You may reserve posts if you wish.

Because we use it all the time anyway. I want to see other things.

Here is my entry. I know it won't win, but why not try?

I'm bad at outers, so it will look terrible.

I hope someone likes it. Inner won't match outer that much because I messed up the outer.

Button and smiley color: 1E90FF

Just in case you didn't notice:

 

Prizes increased (total is 8750 xats).

Deadline extended by two days.

 

Also as a reminder, there is no theme for this. It doesn't have to relate to graphics in any way.

 

You can make it about cats if you wanted to.

 

Also deleted a few posts to clean up.

Extended it by about a week for various reasons. Increased prizes because of it. Total is 10750.

 

If you feel like your background could use work or you made an inner but not an outer, do it now. :)
