Extended

The Packs Galore contest was due to end in a few hours but i have come to the decision to extend it. The contest has been uber successful and i thank everyone that has entered and under normal circumstances it would close on time.

However a number of issues have arisen including my exams which weren't set when the contest were launched, a mess up on the countdown timer and Sinister-Starfeesh currently being offline and i feel it unfair to close the contest now only for everyone to have to wait a week for the results.

Therefore the new deadline is: Sunday 16th May @ 11.59PM UK time

If anyone was considering entering i hope this also gives you a lil more time as i know a couple of people are half way through making a pack.

Thanks for your time and patience. and Good luck :)

Karen


Info
It is my pleasure to announce a brand new contest to the emote community. Pack-it-in and dAmn-Emotes have combined forces to form a unique contest known as Packs Galore

Many emote contests require you to make a single emote on a certain theme, but for this contest we would like you to think outside the box and approach the contest from a different angle. Instead of making a specific emote, this contest is all about packs :dummy:

Packs (groups of emotes submitted in a single downloadable file) are often overlooked in the emote community but they can be an awesome resource to brighten up many websites, IMs and chatrooms. It is from this idea that the contest has been born.

Rules

:bulletred: All emotes in the pack must be made by yourself
:bulletorange: The pack must be brand new to dA, submitted after 2nd April 2010
:bulletyellow: Emotes within the pack can be animated or static or a mixture of the two
:bulletgreen: You can enter a total of 3 packs into the contest
:bulletblue: The contest closes on 10th May at 11.59 UK time
:bulletpurple: The pack must consist of only 12 emoticons
:bulletblack: The pack must contain the following expressions:
- Happy
- Sad
- Angry
- Frightened
- Excited
- Shocked
- In love
- Paranoid
- An additional 4 emotes of your own choice

:bulletred: All emotes should have a body size no greater than 16x16 pixels and a canvas size no greater than 50 pixels wide x 25 pixels high.
:bulletorange: Individual emotes within the pack saved as either a .png or .gif
:bulletyellow: The pack should be saved either as a .zip or .rar

How to submit

Submitting an entry is very easy. Simply follow these instructions:

:bulletgreen: Submit the deviation into the customizations > icons > emoticons > packs and large format category
:bulletblue: State in the artists comments the pack is an entry for the ‘Pack Galore’ contest
:bulletpurple: Submit the pack as a gallery submission to Pack-it-in group within the Packs Galore Entries folder

Please be aware your pack will require a preview image. This image should contain an image of each emote contained. In the case you have included animated emotes a static version in the preview is suitable

If you are unsure on how to create a file to submit the pack as  then please check out this tutorial: synfull.deviantart.com/art/Emo…
