Photoshop contest websites


#1

Does any one know of any websites that offer photoshop contests like woot has on a daily basis (with money prizes)? I have googled and found nothing, I just want something to keep me busy during the week when there are no woot contests?


#2

no, but if you have a sense of humor and want to waste time, go to b3ta.com


#3

What in the world did you Google? Looking for “photoshop contests” returns nearly 2 million hits. The major ones are in the first 10 results.


#4

maybe that “with money prizes” and “daily” thing gets in the way. Heaven forfend that anyone should photochop for FREE.

This is not a daily contest but Bungie and Microsoft have a chop contest going on here: http://hev.halo3webring.com/

Quote: "Ever since fan sites were able to be built on the internet, one program has been used to create them - Photoshop. Halo Everywhere is a contest dedicated to putting Halo into real life. More than just Photoshop mastery, Halo Everywhere is a contest to see where Halo can turn up. Perhaps you have an image where the Master Chief is driving a car? Is there a grunt in your third grade class picture? Is your grandma wearing a Halo shirt?

Halo Everywhere is a photoshop contest where you - the contestant - Photoshop Halo into ordinary life - and see if you can make it look like it’s supposed to be there. The contest will run until February 1st, 2007, and at the end a winner will be chosen by a panel of judges from the Halo community.

May the best artist win!"

And, a quote of the rules:

"HaloEverywhere.com is a contest for the Halo Nation developed by the PraetoriaGuard for the overwhelming Graphics Community out there looking for a challenge worthy of their skill. Prizes will be announced at a later time, and submissions will be reviewed by an all-star Halo Community Judging Panel.

The contest rules are simple:

  1. Insert some form of Halo into an image of real life - and make it look like it’s supposed to be there.

  2. The image must be at least 480 pixels wide and 400 pixels tall. (The larger the image the better.)

  3. The minimum amount of submissions for the contest is one (1) entry, however up to three (3) per artist are allowed.

  4. Browse the site and vote on other submissions! A scale of 1 - 10 is available to vote on. The average will be merged together to display the current “hot” score.

  5. At any time, you may remove or update your submissions - however, any votes received will be reset - and people will have to vote on your work again.

  6. Submitted images will be approved by HEV staff before being displayed. Any form of vulgarity, pornography, or innapropriate material will not be approved.

  7. Visit the forums for questions and more!"

Well said Jo… BTW, what have you done with the $585 you’ve won from the contests here?


#7

Actually its $530. I haven’t received $100 yet, so its $430. and of that, I spent a bit over $200 on a new monitor when my old one blew up- now I know that most of my old pictures were probably not right in terms of the dark colors. doh! I also bought a cheap woot- sudoku game, the rest, ~$200 is still waiting to be spent.

Of course, I also sometimes do Fark pictures- badly, but I’m learning, and I’ve done a few W1K pictures, again, not great scores, but I’ve only done about 5 of those. They strike me as kind of pretentious- they talk about how great the photoshopping has to be, then they vote the really stupid and not all that well done ones to win the contests. I also enter the Dodgeball contest on woot as well, and often post pictures here unrelated to any contest, just to have fun.

Wow. I didn’t realize you did Fark and W1K. You are a regular Photoshop whore, I guess. :wink:


#9

He’s good enough, he’s smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like him. It’s a shame about him being a whore though. :frowning: I’ve never gotten any money for it so I can’t be called that, yet… I guess I can be called easy though.
