it's the day after the contest and I'm busy looking
through all the entries to see who is going to be the
winner of this prestigious contest…
glanced at every single entry, trying to get that "first
impression" feel for each one… I got a lot of standard
wallpapers…. a lot of them.
must be blunt: I was rather disappointed with the entries
of this contest. Don't get me wrong, some at first glance
looked very well done… but obviously the majority of
you did not read Wallpaper Creation 101, which gave
some interesting tips on creating a wallpaper that would
appeal to ME, the judge…the person who determines whether
or not you win… I'm still haven't seen a wallpaper in
the entries that did something different, that no one
else has done with a wallpaper before…if you wondering,
"What else done with a wallpaper except putting a bunch
of characters on it?" Check out the recent staff wallpapers
to see how flexible wallpapers can really
be for the creative medium.
the point of this communication is to explain how the
judging process will work:
I will write a short review for EVERY WALLPAPER submitted,
that you will be able to read with the wallpaper when
all entries are posted and the winner is announced.
wallpapers that I find in the DBZN's staff collection
and in the fan section of the website will be thrown
out as stated in the contest rules. I already suspect
I have at least 5 or 6 that violated this rule…. Maybe
you just couldn't wait to have it posted on the DBZN…
but the bottom line is that it couldn't be on the
DBZN when I see it. Which was today.
I finish my review of each… I will compare the reviews
to determine the top 5, and then compare them against
each other to get the winner.
expect this process to take anywhere from 2 weeks to
20 days to do, this should also give me time to contact
the winner and get his prize preference.
Checking back often, because I just might get done early.
