    Week #1 Winners Announcement

    So the voting has ended and we have selected the 10 winners for Week #1 of Tempmas 2014.
    Thanks to everyone who entered the competition, there were some really great submissions this year and it was really tough getting the list down to just 10 entries.
    Check out the following spoiler box to see if your card was chosen as one of the lucky winners:

    *drum roll*

    ORIGINAL POST


    Welcome to this year's Tempmas!
    This year will be a shorter competition but the prizes will be as awesome as always!
    What we're asking for this week is for you to design a Christmas/Tempmas themed card (by card, we mean a simple JPG/PNG non-animated image, physical cards are also accepted!)
    The 10 best cards will all receive a brand new (no game limit) Sky3DS Flash card!

    No offense but that is a terrible entry and you have obviously put zero effort and imagination into it. Every year the staff put a lot of effort into organizing tempmas and Costello spends a lot of cash providing prizes and every year people seem to get lazier and lazier which is insulting to us. It would be nice if we actually got ten decent entries this year that actually deserve a Sky3DS for their effort, instead of us being forced to give prizes to people who submitted garbage because nobody could be bothered to spend more than 5 minutes on MS paint on their card.

    Sadly I am not creative enough.

    I remember one Tempmas where you got clues and needed to use them to search for the next clue all over GBAtemp (and a VPN Partner Site) to get to the final answer.
    That was a really nice tempmas even uncreative people like me could join. I hope there will be something like this again in the future.

    For this year: I wish everybody good luck and hope that there will be lots of great entries. (I guess the great ones will come later, as they need a little more time to be thought about and created)

    That one was great... until people uploaded the answers and just started cheating.
    I MAY try something for this one, but I'm not particularly creative either (to the point where the best I can do is something that looks like it was created in 5 minutes with MS Paint, even if it wasn't)

    Two questions:-

    1. If we win, the Sky3ds will be delivered worldwide?
    2. How big the size of the entry image should be? Thanks. :)

    1. Yes
    2. Doesn't matter too much, but don't go too big. Don't want to wait 30 minutes for your card to load :P
    I'd say around the size of an actual card you would send to someone.

    This sounds awesome!

    Is it allowed to make a card based on illustration? My idea would be to have multiple characters from the gaming community (Master Chief, Pokemon, Solid Snake, etc).

    There is no need to PM anything to Costello.
