The Official SitePoint Twitter BackGround competition
It's contest time so let's twitter!
Spring is getting closer and you know what this means… birds singing, flowers blooming, blood pressure rises and love is in the air… and we go crazy and want to give copies of our very best design books… one that's not even on the streets yet!
But since there are so many incredible SitePointers out there, we need to choose the one that will deserve such a good prize. Not just anyone, but one that truly feels the artist within!
Do you think that you have what it takes? The imagination? The creativity? The style? Then, this contest is for you. Give it your very best shot!
What we want you to do
We want you to design the best Twitter profile background you can think/ dream of/ design. Why Twitter? Well, because it is the second best thing on the internet (the first, of course, is SitePoint).
Your limited only by your imagination, any theme and style will be accepted. That said, we will not consider entries that include any kind of political or adult references (including violence, or anything that may be offensive). We want good taste, no polemics. There are so many sources of inspiration, so use them.
How you can submit your entry?
You can send any kind of graphic format you may consider appropriate, as long as photoshop can open it. Remember that you'll be sending it by e-mail so don’t make it unnecessarily large. But just remember choosing the right format can help a lot rendering a good quality of your design!
