Note me


Hello everyone!

My first contest will be about journal skins!



How to participate:

Bullet; Blue Create an installable journal skin (whatever theme you like - just be creative :D )
Bullet; Blue Send me a note with the thumb - you MUST mention, that it is for the contest
Bullet; Blue You MAY enter up to THREE skins into the contest. Only one will be actually winning 1st-4th place
Bullet; Blue The journal you enter HAS TO BE free to use on DA and therefore instantly installable!
Bullet; Blue You MAY use images that are not your own IF you followed the stock-rules and link back to the original artist WITHIN your journalskin!
To make sure you are doing everything correctly you might want to check out this: fav.me/d76ivji and for even further Information: fav.me/d7n3q6p
WARNING:
I will be checking out some of the skins! If I find out there were illegal stocks used, I will report it and bann you permanently from further contests!
Bullet; Blue you MAY enter older journals, if they are not already in my favs. If you are not sure, check them out here: windklang.deviantart.com/favou…
Bullet; Blue make sure you submit your skin to the right gallery. If you are not sure, check this tutorial - Miscats won't be eligable entries!




Prizes EDITED!

Ok guys, I need to edit the prices, since there seem to be a lot of people interested in this contest, and really helpful and supporting, providing :points: points and other prizes. So please check again, to make sure you get the best win!


Special prices


There are special prices which you only get if you are actually interested in them! It would not make sense to give a short-story-commission or a domain registration to somebody who hates reading!

If you are interested in one of the following prices you HAVE TO mention your interest in the very same note, in which you send me your entry!

1st place
:
Bullet; Green 1 year hosting unlimited, domain registration., And with the design portfolio website.
All configuration, ready to use!!!
(if you want this price, you also need to mention it in the note in which you are submitting your entry)
Bullet; Green further detail: bottom of the page (Bullet; Green -sign)
Bullet; Green this price is sponsored by :iconkrugner: - for any further questions you need to contact him.
Bullet; Green a llama from me, if not already given
Bullet; Green A journal where I give a brief introduction of your gallery similar to this: fav.me/d7mw0lt


Bullet; Yellow 4th-25th place (given to one of those, who will be chosen by random.org - only, if interest was included in the entry-note)
Bullet; Yellow Pencil a short story commission by :iconmiss-mutated-mango:


Casual prices


Bullet; Blue 1st-30th places:
Bullet; Blue EVERY journalskin in this range will be used for a feature for more than 30 artists of :iconthefavouriteshowcase: - So those people will most probably come along and see your beautiful journal.
Bullet; Blue For EVERY journalskin that is used for this feature, you will get a specific feature at the bottom - similar to this: fav.me/d7mbe47


Bullet; Black So the main idea is, that as many people as possible see your beautiful skins.
-- There are still prices above this:


Bullet; Yellow 1st place:
Bullet; Yellow 400 :points: points

Bullet; Yellow a llama from me, if not already given
Bullet; Yellow A journal where I give a brief introduction of your gallery similar to this: fav.me/d7mw0lt

DEADLINE:

The contest will end on 30th of July 24:00!!
Deadline will NOT be extended in order to ensure that I will be able to do the features before my pm expires.

How I will choose the winners:

Bullet; Blue winners will be chosen by :iconwindklang: and :iconginkgografix:
Bullet; Blue our personal taste - to have an idea check the folder "Skins" in my favourites: windklang.deviantart.com/favou… and ginkgografix 's gallery ginkgografix.deviantart.com/ga…
Bullet; Blue Make sure you have a good overall impact on your journal
Bullet; Blue extra features in the coding, which make the skin more interesting will be appreciated, but not nessecary.


If the deviant that won the first special price did not mention he was interested in the website-hosting, he will get the first casual prize!



Spread the word if you like - I would very much appreciate every single mention :)

If you like this contest, and want to support it, I would be very glad to find a sponsor to run more contests and maybe also extend my pm, once it is expired.


I hope you have fun creating new skins, or finding beautiful old ones in your gallery :)

Take care - I am looking forward to see your skins!!
Mel

I was hoping to make a journal skin with some any cartoons or even flowery in it and try it in my new journal skin code and I still have a time to do it for now because all the school-ness...xDD (My state doesn't have Summer so yeah...^^;) and I also might enter 2 journals, can I?
Reply
:iconwindklang:
Windklang Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Of course - you can enter up to 3 journals :D YEAH - go for it :)
The deadline is going to be on 30 of July so you have 14 days to go :)
If you decide to do one with cartoons make sure you are in accordance with the copyright-guidelines :) But you probably have your own cartoons in mind :)

Have fun creating your entries! I am looking forward to see them :D

Again I was wrong. It is the third contest I can not participate. I thought it was something like photomanipulation. I can not do skins.  Waaaah! No, I disagree! 

Anyway, thank you for encouraging me to do more work. :)

I always fumble with my English, I'm sorry.  :(

A big hug,
my dear friend. :hug:

I would recommend to you to post a forum thread here. The title should mention that you search for someone capable of coding CSS. In there you explain what you need - include a thumb that referes to the contest. Explain what you expect your partner to do and what part you would take (like designing) and see if somebody answeres.
You could also have a try posting a comment on groups profile-pages that have to do with CSS. I would recommend :iconecssited: but there are heaps of others :)
Don't be to shy to ask for help. There are a lot of friendly people all around on dA! Even if you won't find a partner for this contest, you are most likely to find new friends or people you are always welcome to come back to in order to ask :)

Good luck :)

Hello there. :-) I have a little problem: I wanted to enter the contest with my journal skin I made earlier with my OC in it, but I don't want other people to use it. Do I have to make another skin then that all people may use?
Reply
:iconwindklang:
Windklang Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The journal skin has to be installable, yes.
I think, that there should be a way to alter your skin, so that you don't have to do it over again.
But I have no experience with making skins. Please contact :iconginkgografix: - I am sure she will be able to help you! (She is also helping me with the contest :) )

Thank you very much for your kind request :)

:iconmaanhart:
Maanhart Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ehm, that's not exactly what I mean. I meant that in the rules of this contest is stated that the skin has to be free to use for all deviants, but I don't want that because my OC is on it. :-) So I think I have to make a journal skin that may be used by other people.
Reply
:iconwindklang:
Windklang Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, yes that's right :)
The idea is to enrich the community in throwing in new and old free-to-use-journal-skins :)
Sorry about the misunderstanding :)
