(Runs from June 15- July 16 )
Thank you for visiting our challenge page. Each month we hold a different contest/challenge. Up until now it has been a makeup challenge of some sort. This month the challenge is going to be a little different. We’re stepping away from the makeup for a bit to find followers and friends out there who have talent in other artistic areas. This month is an art/digital art contest. We are looking for the best designs in 2 different categories.
The first category is Logo. We will be looking for a design that includes our name, Mostlydead.com. You can use the logo/font** from our page/Facebook page to incorporate into a design, or you can come up with something completely new.
**(Good luck finding the font from our new page. (sorry) I think our designer created it himself, but the old font was very close to “miserable” which you can download from 1001freefonts.com, which also has a lot of other interesting fonts that you can get creative with - don’t forget to donate to the designer.)
The second category is Non-Logo. This can be a funny quip that you made up, a picture that you drew, a photo that you took or a combination. If it is text only, please still make it a design. In other words, pick a font and a layout – don’t just send us your jokes. Please make sure you check your spelling and use punctuation if necessary.
Whichever category you choose and whichever way you choose to do it, it should be themed around our company and what we do. I.e. Halloween, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, makeup, masks, costumes, cosplay etc. It can be serious, dramatic, comical, creepy, romantic, dark or whatever is your style. Just please keep it clean and legal. Everything MUST be original art. No copyrighted or trademarked material. Nothing downloaded from the internet!(except our logo) No pictures that you drew of Jason or Freddy or the Grinch etc. No photos of a piece of art that you saw at the renaissance fair. Do not grab your best friend’s doodle off of his desk and send it to us. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, it just has to be yours. Make it original. Make it fun. Make it Mostlydead.
We reserve the right to disqualify any artwork that we deem inappropriate, illegal or irrelevent.
The winners’ designs may be incorporated into “official Mostlydead swag” and offered for sale printed on t-shirts etc, so keep this in mind when creating your design. The winners will receive one shirt of their choice with their design printed on it along with prize(s) listed below. You will not receive any compensation from any sales that we make from items with your design on them. Please read all the terms below before entering this contest.
$100 Gift certificate redeemable at mostlydead.com will be awarded to the best design from each category. Winning design will be featured on our website, social media pages and may be used as-is or modified to be printed on merchandise and/or marketing or other material associated with mostlydead.com.
