Missed this Contest?
Don't worry if you missed your chance to enter something for this contest - We'll be having lots more of these competitions and this is just the launch party for the Flickr Group. To join up, add the Webdesigntuts+ Flickr Group to your Flickr profile, and then upload/add your own web designs to the group.
Don't forget to subscribe to Webdesigntuts+ from the top-right of our site to receive updates on articles, tutorials, and other great contests.
Original Contest Announcement:
(Entries Closed on Nov 10th, Vote Above!)
I mentioned in the recent post about getting feedback that joining community groups is a great way to participate in the community and get comments on your work from other designers. Well, in an effort to put some of that talk into real action, I'm excited to announce our official Flickr Group! The purpose of this group is threefold:
- To provide a place where web designers can share their work and get feedback.
- To find great talent from around the world to showcase here on Webdesigntuts.
- To provide a way for our reader's to increase their own portfolio's exposure.
So, without further delay, here are the contest details:
Your very own "feature" post on the site, complete with a bio, a short interview, and a showcase of your portfolio for all the world to see! We're on track for over 300,000 visits for this month alone, so you won't want to miss out on a chance to showcase your talents to the world!
How Do I Enter?
Easy! Just add the Webdesigntuts+ Flickr Group to your Flickr profile, and then upload/add your own web designs to the group.
How Do I Win?
(Closed on Nov 10th, Vote Above!) Voting will be weighed in 2 ways: Community voting (75%) and Envato Team voting (25%). We'll be combining the overall totals to determine the winner of the showcase contest! The criteria for the winning contributor is simple: the website design that showcases the best understanding of layout principles, visual hierarchy, and typography will win. We'll also be taking into account any community discussion and buzz, so be sure to leave comments both here and at the group page!
Who Can Enter?
Anyone! You might be a new freelancer, an Envato™ Marketplace Author, or an established design studio - everyone is welcome. Site editors, managers, and other Envato™ staff won't be considered for the winning selection, but they are invited to add their own work too. The more the merrier!
What Should I Enter?
Web Designs! Any type of web design will be considered with the following exceptions: no adult content, no violent content, nothing that you wouldn't want your mother or little sister to see ;) Everything else is welcome to join the party.
What Happens To My Work If It Doesn't Win?
All work submitted can stay on the official Flickr Group as long as you wish - all designs posted will be shown on the Webdesigntuts+ website along the sidebar and you retain full credit of your work. With lots of traffic coming through the site every day, this is a great way to boost your exposure, get feedback, and improve your work through dialogue with the community.
Update: I just wanted to let everyone know that, after just one day of being public, there are so many great entries that I'll also be posting a regular "The Best of the Webdesigntuts+ Flickr Feed" post (most likely a monthly showcase article) that will allow more than one person to get some extra exposure. This doesn't change the contest or anything, but there are just too many great designs to ignore and I can already tell it's going to be hard to pick just one person (but do that I must)! More details to come - keep on posting!
