Introduction Ladies, gentlemen and Rowsdowers - cupcakes, all... it's been a little while but it's time once again for a WildStar Central competition! This time, we're looking for something a little different - a chance to be digitally immortalised. After a fashion. We're looking for you, our community, to design us a new website background! Yes, it's been decided that the Exiles have rule the roost a little too long here at WSC and it's time for a change! Timeframe and Entering To enter, all you will need to do is email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight EST on 31st August 2013 - the staff here at WSC will discuss and then announce the three winners by the 15th September 2013. You will only be allowed one entry, per person - so put your best effort in first, since any subsequent entries will disqualify you! Yes, you heard us - winners, plural. We will pick the three finest entries for first, second and third place - to be our champions! However, only the first-place winner will actually have their image used as the site background. Your entry email must include... Your image attached to the email (not embedded) in PNG, JPEG, or GIF format. Your WSC forum username Your real name and postal address (for legal, and prize shipping purposes) Please note that your entry will also be agreement to our competition terms and conditions (listed below). Prizes The winners of this little competition will get a custom forum title - "WSC Background Designer 2013". The first-place winner will have the WSC site background changed to their winning entry. And if the chance of having your artwork plastered all over WSC isn't enough as well as a title then...as with our previous community competitions (courtesy of Carbine Studios) we will also offer some special WildStar prizes as follows... 1st Prize: WildStar Hoodie, WildStar USB Bracelet, WildStar Card Deck, Mechari Mousepad 2nd Prize: WildStar USB Bracelet, WildStar Card Deck, Mechari Mousepad 3rd Prize: WildStar USB Bracelet, Mechari Mousepad That's right, you heard us - we're continuing our tradition of securing real WildStar swag for the public, straight from the top! Who loves ya, baby? Image Guidelines Since this will be replacing our existing background (you can find that at http://wildstar-central.com/styles/wildstarcentral/xenforo/bg.jpg) you will need to ensure your image matches the dimensions of 1950x1200px. The rest of the site will not be undergoing any modifications to match the winning image, so a similar dark colour palette will be a judging criteria. Screenshots (non-Beta), custom artwork and concept artwork can all be used to create your entry. The image must be static - no animated GIF's I'm afraid! (far too distracting for a background image!). Finally, the image must display both factions (Exile and Dominion) prominently or be faction-neutral.
