Well the last contest I held, in which anyone could do (the comic strip contest), didn't go over so well. I only had 3 entrees!
Well I'm taking a different approach now. Maybe make a contest for people who specialize in it. I know you make think this is unfair if you aren't as good as making these as some other people, but just enter anyway... you never know, you might win! Plus you get free points for just entering!
Anyway.... I am holding a Sig Making Contest. This contest is open to anyone who wants to enter.
1. Must have some color
2. Doesn't have to be made in Photoshop, it can be made in anything, even hand drawn if you like.
3. Needs to follow basic Sig Rules (Nothing bad and no 800x600 sigs please. ;))
4. Gifs are allowed, but it isn't required.
5. The sig can be about anything you want.
6. Only 3 entrees per person and remember to PM me the links to the three if you wish to enter.
Remember to have fun :). This does not have to be some huge project where you spend 40 hours working on it, just a quick 5 minute sig is acceptable. But remember I will be judging these on how much time and effort it looks like you put into it, so please at least make it look like you tried.
1. I'm pretty much just judging your sigs based on how much time and effort it looks like you put into it.
1st Place: 750 Points
2nd Place: 500 Points
3rd Place: 250 Points
Runner Up: 100 Points
All entress that look decent (at my discretion) will automatically receive 25 points just for entering the contest. (You will not receive this bonus if you win 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or the Runner Up prizes.)
Contest ending date is currently set at January 15, 2006. But it may be extended upon request or at my choice.

Ok here's an Update everyone, Please Read!:
Upon request by nvqphil, the limit is set to 3 entrees per person. It does seem to make it more fair for those who don't have the time to make like 10.
Also! I didn't expect there to be 10 pages in this thread with still 10 days left in the contest! It is gonna drive me crazy trying to find all of your entrees!
So Please, gather up your three entrees and PM the links to them to me. It will make it a lot easier for me to grade them and give out the prizes on time. Remember, once you PM me your 3 entrees, that is final, you cannot change them so be sure you have your 3 favorites before you decide to send them to me. It would be a good idea to probably wait until the 14th to submit them, in case u a get new, better idea.

Alright, all entrees in? Ok good, I've decided the winners.
To be honest, it was really hard. There were tons of entrees this time around and it was really difficult deciding which 4 I thought were the best. But after some debate I came to a conclusion.
1st Place winning 750 points: Noddy Jnr (who is super lucky to have submitted his sigs just a few hours before I decided the winners :icon_bigg )
2nd Place winning 500 points: Freehate, with his awesome Naruto Sigs.
3rd Place winning 250 points: xodiac21, the sig that got you this spot, I really had no idea what it was, but it was great.
The Runner Up winning 100 points: torrobinson with his really nice Halo sig.
Thanks to everyone for entering, there were so many entrees and this was really a hard decision. Remember if you just entered any sigs, you get a 25 point prize just for entering.
I will get all the prizes out as soon as possible.
I also want to make a note to Nvqphil who just started photoshop when this contest opened and has progressed a lot in the time of this contest. He was my choice for the Runner up prize until Noddy entered and he pushed everyone down a spot so blame him. :icon_bigg
