iBAM Wallpaper Contest

11 years ago in Articles by Brent | 4 Comments


A couple months ago I was conversing via Twitter about having another contest for a .Mac account I have just sitting here. Tonight, I was playing around in Photoshop again and started making some wallpapers. I put the two ideas together and thought, “how about a wallpaper design contest for this .Mac account?” Now, I’m a sucker for a great wallpaper and I’m pretty sure I share that feeling with just about every other Mac user on the planet. I know I’d love to have some spiffy new wallpapers and I’m sure you would as well. So I’m thinking this would be a great excuse to get our greasy mitts on some fresh, new eye candy. The I thought, to make it more fun, I’d open up the judging to everyone this time. Here’s how the contest will work:

Design a wallpaper (at least 1680×1050 for MBP’s) with any theme/style/color/etc at all. We’re looking for ultra cool and creative here so have fun! Here’s a couple suggestions, but you don’t have to adhere to them at all, just consider them ideas:

  • Apple Theme
  • Use the iBAM Logo
  • 3D is always cool
  • Stunning Photography is nice
  • Put “iboughtamac.com” somewhere (sweet!)

Zip up your submission and email it to me: hello [at] iboughtamac.com and I’ll post it here on iBAM with a vote box in the post so everyone can rate it on a scale of 1 to 5. The winner will be based on the number of votes as well as the highest ratings. (We’ll come up with some nifty calculation thingie if we have to.)

We’ll close this contest off in 2 weeks (October 5th, 2007)

Okay, now remember… YOU are all the judges on this one so when I post a new wallpaper, help spread the word so we can get the most votes possible. I’m really excited to see what you come up with so, bring it on!

I’ll also make some calls over the next couple weeks to see if I can sweeten the winnings pot a little too (no promises though). Also, I’m not sure, but since this .Mac account is still in the box and shrink wrapped, if you don’t want it, I’m pretty sure you can exchange it for store credit (that’s $99), but don’t quote me on that, I’m not sure of the Apple policy on this sort of stuff.

Okay, I’m done! Happy wallpapering!
