    Welcome to Design Challenge #12

    Here we go...

    I know you have all been waiting a year for this, so good luck all!
    Please read the rules as they have changed a little bit in some places.

    The Challenge

    Photoshop on Blu-ray.


    Design a fictitious Blu-ray cover!

    This can include an original illustration, photograph, photomanip, collage, whatever you like, as long as Photoshop is used somewhere in the creation of the piece (and you have the rights to the artwork used).

    It's on Blu-ray! It can be a thriller, comedy, action, adventure, sci-fi, mini-series, you name it. The twist? You must use something (anything) from Photoshop in the name (A tool, a filter, menu item etc).

    Props for wit and cunning! Use any original artwork you desire. You may use any tools or platform you choose, but you must use Photoshop for at least 50% of the Image editing/design. Photos are acceptable, credit the photographer if you're not the photographer.

    ENTRIES MUST BE POSTED IN THE FORUMS BY: JAN 31st 2012 : MIDNIGHT PST

    Instructions

    Download the template and create your cover on the "Artwork" layer. When you are done, choose Save for web and save a jpg at 65% quality, use your forum username for your entry. If you submit 2 entries use username.jpg, username-2.jpg.

    Go to the Forums here (If you are new you will have to create a free account)

    Choose this link and create a new thread and attach your entry (One entry per thread). Make sure you attach your photo to the entry (choose to display it at 100% original size). no offsite linking will be considered for judging.

    Judging

    1. Overall impact 40% of score
    2. Concept 30% of score
    3. Graphics skill 30% of score

    The Judges: Avi Muchnick (Aviary & Worth 1000), Oliver Ottner (iService & Effectlab); Colin Smith (PhotoshopCAFE & Pixeloverload).

    Entry fee

    Entry fee? Who charges an entry fee? We are against that kind of thing, so as always, it's free, so spread the word!

    Rules

    2 entries allowed per contestant
    You may comment on your entry, eg. concept, creation process, photo credit etc.
    Anyone may enter (except judges)
    All entries to be posted no later than midnight PST JAN 31, 2012.
    No pirated or ripped images are to be used. If you are caught ripping for the contest, you will be banned from all future contests at the CAFÉ.
    No pornography or profane language will be accepted.
    No political or racist imagery allowed.
    Judges decision will be final and no argument allowed.
    Finally, Have fun!

    Fineprint ...

    Any taxes and duties are the responsibility of winners.
    Also (because it's free to enter and we don't get any money for this) International winners are responsible for shipping fees, fair enough?
    No substitutions or cash value

    PS.. I just wrote an article to help people with this year's contest. It's sad to see so many good entries get hurt because of bad typography. Here is something that I hope helps

    Hi,

    I'm Ponchita and new to The Photoshop Cafe' contest..I do have a question ..when you say,"You may use any tools or platform you choose, but you must use Photoshop for at least 50% of the Image editing/design. What exactly do you mean? Are we suppose to put in actual pictures of Photoshop like the first submitted entry or ?

    Thank you and GOD Bless,
    Nikki aka Ponchita
