Emblem Contest - Winter

 

Winter is a time when bears hibernate, heavy peacoats appear, and we try to gather over 1,000 lb. of buffalo to find that we can only carry about 100 lb. back to our wagon and...oh wait, that's Oregon Trail ©.  To show your Clan's prowess with all things Winter"-y" and to earn some gold, all you have to do is create the most Winter-inspired version of your Clan's emblem that the NA community has ever known!

 

How to enter

In this topic:

-Post your current (non-themed) emblem and your new (themed) emblem

-Post your Clan tag/name

-Post which player in your clan did the artwork.

 

Contest Rules

-Clan emblem can be any of the 5 sizes (24x24, 32x32, 64x64, 195x195, 256x256).

-Contest closes January 4, 2015 23:59 PST

-Clans may submit multiple entries, however only one per Clan will be eligible for prizes.

-Clan must submit their original (non-modified, if you had one before) and entry (themed) emblems.

-All entries must follow the overall rules for Clan emblem usage (See section 3)

-Entries must adhere to the contest's theme to be eligible to win any prizes. This will be determined by WGA staff.

-Entries for this contest can be placed in either this contest thread or in this one.   

 

Emblems will be judged based on:

-Creativity

-Quality of editing (how good it looks)

-Bonus points for how well your standard Clan emblem is modified into an emblem

-How much your Clan Emblem makes Hypnotik realize that the winter weather here in San Francisco is so much better than in his hometown of Chicago. (Palm trees in Winter? Apparently.)

 

Prizes (to Clan Treasury)

-As Clan Emblem changes are free until December 20, 2014, only Clans that submit an entry (within the rules) and change their Clan emblem after the 20th of December, 2014 will receive 1,000 Gold to cover the costs of the emblem change (500 to apply it, and 500 to revert back to the original after the contest ends). All clans that change their emblem prior to December 20, 2014 will just get the 500 Gold to revert to the original emblem.

-1st Place: 10,000 Gold

-2nd Place: 8,000 Gold

-3rd/4th Place: 6,000 Gold

-5th-8th Place: 4,000 Gold

 

Plane/Tank Reward:

As an additional bonus, whichever artist created the emblem for the 1st place entry will receive your choice of a WoWP Tier 7 Premium Plane (with a hangar slot) OR a WoT Tier 8 Non-Rare Premium Tank (with a garage slot)...just because Hypnotik loves you.

 

A note on the religious nature of this season:

We understand that many of the holidays of this season have religious foundations. While we may be a little more lenient on what can be included in emblems for this contest, it would be wise to make sure that your entries still fall within the rules. Do not insult any religions, do not use any religious symbols in a derogatory fashion, and do not create emblems to preach or promote any specific religion. When in doubt, just play it safe and use a snowman instead.

I've noticed some clan logos are simply taken from game/graphic logos of other companies - but with their names under those graphics.  Is there a rule that mandates this to be original artwork?

All praise Snowman Lord of winter and all things seasonal.  May Snowman bless you all with many a snow. May His carrot nose inspire you to eat your veggies.  May His coal eyes gaze upon you so that ye may be blessed with warmth so that ye too be a follower of Lord Snowman.  Praise be to Snowman.  SNAmen

I have to admit, Aces High, has the coolest clan tag (on in game Aircaft) I have seen thus far!

I thought the same thing after watching their videos of replays of CCWA.  It is really sharp looking in game.

It appears all they did was grab clip art anyone can use and write the clan name over it.  I hope this contest requires more creativity than that.  Well I guess they did flip it too.

Don't be hatin on my photoshop job lol. I did more than just grab a piece of clipart and hit the 'image size' button. I cleaned things up with a 1 pixel pencil to re-add the definition that gets lost and blurred out when you shrink the original image down to 256x256. Manually editing individual pixels to make them pop more, especially highlights and lowlights.

If you paid the $10 then you could have got a much better version to make that easier.  All I am really saying is that its just an image anyone could use....  I agree it looks good.
