The purpose of this contest is to let your creativity flow in real life with real life situations. You're not allowed to adjust or alter an image in Photoshop so it would include the Neowin logo. Where you to buy a RR Phantom, change the logo and take a picture of it then you'd have a valid entry. Looking for a picture on the net and then adjusting it in Photoshop was not the purpose of this contest.

At least, that's what I understood...

Well, imagestiching wasn't an option, so I just stuck them together the old fashion way - Annoys me the picture is so tiny and the bottom is cut out when you upload, I know it was a tad long :p

What you are seeing is a scaled down version of submissions. We have the originals in a folder, and they will be accessible to staff at the time of judging.

Badass!

Great competition.

I'm off to get an actual NW tattoo, if that doesn't win me something, shucks!

Not really, but maybe one day. I don't want to be Neowin's version of Zune Guy though :laugh:

and if you don't win your stuck with a tattoo when the site won't be around forever. :blink:

not very original imo, just use a marker and someone with good drawing skills.

by the way i know you were joking, but still !!! :laugh:

Speaking of scaling down and Photoshopping:

I took a picture of my submission, opened it up in Paint Shop Pro, cleaned up the digital noise, scaled it down to Facebook picture dimensions (604x453 pixels), sharpened it, and submitted it. Is that okay, or would you staff prefer the original untouched file from my camera?

That's probably okay, as I assume they'll be judging on the artistic merit, not whether or not you can take a photograph like a pro. Although I'm sure genuinely blurry messes like you've taken a photo while having a fit won't be easy to judge :p

I guess the rules more mean manipulation like adding/removing things that aren't in the original photo, or creating your design out of computer graphics, as opposed to real life elements.

I wonder if we can fool them by taking a screenshot of our monitor showing our real edited life photo :shiftyninja:

Yeah don't worry about cleaning up noise or something - the main point is that the concept has to be done in real life, as opposed to being a composite in Photoshop.

What are Private entries in the HP Giveaway?

It's where individuals have unchecked the public tick box when submitting their entry. This means it's not viewable in the gallery until the contest is over to avoid their ideas being used by another person.

Alrighty. (Y)

Speaking of entries, here's another one. Is it just me or that looks like the Neowin logo was pasted onto a black background in an image editing program and the picture photographed with a low-res camera? If this is not the case, I apologize, but that looks awfully clean for something made up of real world elements :p

I am sure the judges will look into actual 'effort' and 'creativity' instead of something just done on a whim.

No it looks like neowin logo made out of card stuck to the end of a torch like batman logo, the grain you get is because of low light.
