We're having a similar contest at TinyRC.com. Create Mini-ZRacer.com Wallpaper! Email your entry at 640x480 to gallery@mini-zracer.com. The source should be scalable so that winners can provide 800x600, 1024x768, 1600x1200 etc. There aren't too many rules, except that the pic must contain the Mini-ZRacer.com logo or URL, and that all images used must either be your own, or should have proof of consent in the form of email or a post to the Forums (if the owner is a Forum Member). Deadline and prizes TBA soon! :D

Bonus: You can also create Mini-ZRacer.com-themed icons and avatars, we'll offer a prize for the coolest non-wallpaper item too! :)

Mixxy, best thing to do then is looks for pics in the Gallery etc., then ask the owner for permission. :)

Here is one I just whipped up...

:p

BTW, it is 1600x1200, so if you are using IE 6, it will auto size it smaller and make it look like garbage, so make sure you view it full size! :D

ken, feel free to post your idea as yours, cause, well, it is :D i just thought the hand-written logo worked a little better with the background ;)

oh come on, this CANT be the end of the entry list!

arch2b
2002.12.17, 09:53 PM
i would post more but there is a one entry rule. is this the same for tinyrc? there are numerous posts by each member there. i just naturally assumed it was the same format here.
it really makes for a short list here.

Chezedog
2002.12.17, 09:54 PM
Sure it can! Not every contest can last 8 years and have 73,268 entries! :D

I sent 6 and then was told I could only use one.
The first post said,"There aren't too many rules, except that the pic must contain the Mini-ZRacer.com logo or URL, and that all images used must either be your own, or should have proof of consent in the form of email or a post to the Forums (if the owner is a Forum Member). " and didn't mention any "one entry rule" but...so it goes.

I just had fun doing them, and that's really the whole point!:D

Chezedog
