i would like one too.
Ok so I have Mal's support and help on the contest. We agreed that a few different designs would be good and that printfection is the place we'll go with... It's just easier this way and the prices won't be too bad.
I'm going to create a "contest thread"- where ONLY participants can post their entries. We'll keep it open until June 1- It should be pretty easy to select the one(s) you like.
So we settled on three entries per person, but now we need to figure out how many votes each voter gets. I'm thinking 2 or 3 but I can't decide. Any ideas? I want to get this going ASAP.
I'm thinking NO voting for participants just to make if fair. I'm waiting to see of Mal agrees on this or not before posting the contest thread...
I don't know, maybe the participants are required to vote for themselves just so it's fair. I don't know which polling program you're going to use but it's kinda hard to regulate that. If you're going to use the Poll feature on the forum, I think you can see whether or not they voted. If the participants do not vote, and the designs are very close, their one vote can make it or break it. That's why if going through the forum, the participants should all vote on their design right in the beginning so we know for sure they can't add that one vote later on when it's close. .... Unless there's a way to ban them from voting through the forum but I don't think this vBulletin software has that feature. Maybe...
Just my thoughts...
The best way to do the actual vote may be to just start a thread, that way everyone's votes can be accounted for and checked. I don't think we NEED it to be anonymous. It would be fun this way too because the voting could be tracked by all. The results could also be checked by anyone, and everyone is involved.
It's a simple idea, but I don't see it getting any easier any other way...
Would you guys be interested in supplying T-shirts to the Antmans Short Film Contest?
Yeah I was gonna say that but it all depends on the polling system.
I saw the new thread. Hope we get in a lot of entries within the next two weeks. Don't forget, you also need to post some specs. Most likely the designs have to be at least 300 dpi and probably best to have them in their native software file (.psd, etc...) so the print shop can use that instead of a low-res jpg. Very important step there to ensure they don't delete the .psd and keep only the .jpg
Hey darth, could you turn the official design thread into a Poll, so user could vote for their favorite designs? Just a suggestion, as you're now, moderating things!
A poll can be added once persons have submitted their entries....
So I've had a few questions already regarding format, size, dimensions of the designs for the contest. I don't really have any answers so I figured we could all discuss the logistics out loud...
The main thing is to have the entries turned in on time and as close to actual dimensions as possible. I'm not even sure how many colors we can use or front and back etc. so let's all just try and get them in the way they should look...
If anyone wants to suggest an easy site(s)to get your design done- go right ahead!
I think each entry should be turned in on a T-shirt background template. If you have any trouble, just ask around.
Let's see some entries guys!!
