    [​IMG] GBAtemp Tempmas Mini-Comp #1
    Design the Best Advent Calendar!
    [​IMG]
    Well, Tempers, today we announce the first of the Daily Tempmas Mini-Competitions that GBAtemp will be having throughout the month! If you didn't see the announcement about the mini-competition, kindly click here.

    [​IMG] Today's competition
    Today's competition is a drawing/design competition. You are required to draw the official GBAtemp Calendar image that we will be using during the entire month! All along the month, we will be filling the calendar with images related to the competitions (and once the winners are announced, avatars of the winners will be put there instead). If you aren't too familiar with advent calendars, click here for a low-definition sample. (An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. -- source). We will only be accepting JPG/JPEG, non-animated GIF and PNG images - please do not ask for other formats.

    [​IMG] How to enter?
    Please follow these instructions very carefully! We will not be accepting your entry if you fail to comply with all the instructions.
    To enter, simply send an email to xmas@gbatemp.net with your entry attached to the e-mail. I repeat: no external links in the email, the file needs to be attached for obvious reasons. You may also post your entry on the forums if you so wish, but remember to send the e-mail too otherwise you won't be entered in the contest!

    [​IMG] Winners & prizes
    We will reveal the winner and the prize for this competition tomorrow, when the next competition is announced! Remember that prizes will be getting better and better at each competition, and that we will have a special contest on Christmas Eve! You have until tomorrow, 8:00pm GMT to enter this competition! Again, if graphics design isn't your cup of tea, please do not worry as we will be having a different theme every day! Good luck everyone!

    [​IMG] Special Thanks
    We would like to thank all the staff members that have been involved in the event organization so far, without forgetting our generous partner shops!

    Is it ok if we use Photoshop or GIMP to do this? Or must it be hand drawn?

    sorry if that seemed unclear but you can use anything you want to design the calendar [​IMG]
    There are absolutely no restrictions -- it just has to be made by you, obviously.

    That's actually a good question I'm out of paper to draw on right now so I was going to use an imaging program.
    I've gotten quite good at drawing with a mouse [​IMG]

    Edit: Awesome thanks

    Yeah, it would be awesome if you did stuff like these professionally. Like something similar. Like a magazine layout designer/artist or something. I wish I was one!

    If only there was a 3d modeling compo thrown into the mix this year...

    I suck at drawing.

    Good luck to those who enter [​IMG]
