We will give feedback to all entries with 4 and 5 star ratings. We are not interested in entries that we rate with 3 stars or less.
Please don't copy any of the designs from the above examples. Use it as a reference & inspiration for your own original design. We are looking at something unique which will stand out and look better compared to other competitors.
Design has to be optimized for 1024x768 display resolutions (specially the page width, since height will vary based on content).
Designing a high quality logo is not a core requirement for this design. However, we will give special consideration to those who go above and beyond by providing a highly compelling and enticing logo design.
There are no specific preferences for the type of font to be used, but ensure that it looks good, pleasantly readable and ties in well with the overall design.
We recommend that all contestants use iStockPhoto or a similar service for the site images. Please use the comp images in your design submissions. We will pay for the winning contestants stock images. Please bookmark or save the image numbers so we can easily locate them and pay for a license.
Questions/Comments: Please leave a comment in the discussion thread. We will be checking back on a regular basis while the contest is happening.
Good luck on the contest. We look forward to seeing your work!
