Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I need a simple and clean book illustration. It HAS to be a silhouette. Clean, beautiful lines. The colors chosen are up to your imagination. A black silhouette with a white background is acceptable, but so is a purple silhouette with a green or rainbow background. This is for a children's book on the theme of "Fairy Fallout."

Guidelines:
1. The silhouette needs to depict a nuclear-type mushroom cloud with fairies dancing in and out of it. Dragonfly-type wings are preferred.
2. The image needs to be high resolution (at least 300 dpi). PNG format.
3. "Fairy Fallout" is the working title. I would really like to see this formatted like a book cover, so add in the title "Fairy Fallout" to the graphics.
4. This needs to be an original artwork. No exceptions. You agree that you are the creator of the image and that there are no copyright infringements.
5. The winning artwork and all rights associated with it around the world will automatically transfer to me, upon your selection as the winner.

I will be picking a winner at the latest by Wednesday, August 23rd. If an exceptional entry comes in before that, I could award the prize sooner.

NOTE: I HAVE CREATED A VISUAL IDEA OF WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR AND ATTACHED IT AS AN IMAGE FILE. I DID THIS IN MICROSOFT PAINT WITH SOME PICTURES I GOT ONLINE. IT TOOK 10 MINUTES.

HINT: IF YOU WANT TO WIN THIS CONTEST, YOUR PICTURE WILL LOOK EXTREMELY SIMILAR TO THIS. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT YOURS WILL BE ORIGINAL WORK AND NOT PICTURES FROM GOOGLE.

I am hoping that $100 can pay for something very simple like this. Clean lines. Copyright free. Elegant and simple. The more you add to it, the busier it looks. I want a SIMPLE graphic. Solid tones are preferred.

    I have paid two outside of the contest. Since this is my first contest, I thought that if I awarded someone here, it would automatically close. For that reason, I sent private projects to two winners and even a 4th place winner for $50. However, the person I awarded here hasn't uploaded the files, yet. That means that as far as I am concerned, he has until the end of today or I will award the final $100 prize to someone else.

      No problem. The prize is still there as long as you send the files. I also have a copyright release form that I will send to you to sign. Do you have an email I can use?

    #18, #43, #26, #4, #32, #37, #59 are the main contenders if the current ones don't respond. That doesn't mean that more submissions aren't being accepted. We might even award more prizes if someone wants to really bowl us over.

    These are links to the projects I used to pay the two other contestants. I provide these as proof that I kept my word on having three winners.

    #31 and #46 have both already been paid $100 each. #17 was offered a 4th place prize of $50, which he hasn't accepted. If #36 doesn't upload the files today (he hasn't responded at all to winning the prize since I awarded it to him), then I will try to award the $100 to #17. If he doesn't respond, then the contest will still be on for the last $100 and a $50 4th prize.

    Authors name (and the title for that matter) are not necessary. Really just looking for the art. The title was asked for so that I could get an idea of how it might be placed on the artwork.

    I am looking into awarding more than one winner at this point. Keep submitting! These are wonderful! I will be actively critiquing each entry. Please, don't get your feelings hurt. As with all things business, this is just about making something that will entice consumers to buy this product over the hundreds of other choices.

    hi katefriend,
    i will be creating a posting shortly,
    was wondering, when the book is published will we recieve printed credits for our illustration?

    • 4 vuotta sitten
    1. katefriend
      Kilpailun järjestäjä
      • 4 vuotta sitten

      Yes. Printed credits will be given if and when the book is published, with your artwork. Whether your work will be actually used will be up to the publisher. This is simply the Author's desired cover art.

    hi katefriend,

    regarding dimensions you say this is for a childrens book,what is the finished print dimensions of the book, this is important to determine land scape or portrait, or you may have chosen a custom sizing to appeal more to your target audience

    also regarding lettering and lay out for your Title, do you have a font idea in mind or would you like a custom font made,
    do you have any prefrence for any particular lay out style

    • 4 vuotta sitten
    1. katefriend
      Kilpailun järjestäjä
      • 4 vuotta sitten

      7.5" x 5.5" is the standard size that is being looked at right now. I would like the image in high enough resolution to scale it up and enlarge it, if needed.

    I have updated the description. Take a look at the "visual example" of what I am looking for. This needs to be elegant and simple. Clean lines. It should be easy for the right person. Try to stick close to the sample.
