    Pink For October: The Contest! (3x1)

    Pink For October: The Contest! (3x1)

    October is the month of breast cancer awareness and we are very happy to promote this awareness all around the world. This year we want to make it fun and more active than ever ... and we want all the community to participate too. So we have created Pink For October: The Contest! (3x1)

    What does 3x1 mean?

    It means that it is not only a contest but 3 contests in 1: Logo, content and front-end. That's it. You can win up to 3 prizes!

    I'll give you the full set of rules below, but be aware of the dates to submit your entries ... submit them in the right time frame, or else they will not be considered at all.

    The contest is closed. Thanks to all participants!

    You can use the world clock to work out what time that will be for you.

    E-mail your entries to sitepointcompetitions@gmail.com.
    Please include the word "Front end" in the subject of your e-mail.

    Rules for Pink for October

    Contestants may enter in one, two or three categories. Each area will be judged independently and will have its own winner.

    Logo:

    1.- min width/height: 50px
    2.- It will be a screen-only logo, hence no limits on the number of colors the can be used
    3.- Formats accepted: jpg, gif, png, bmp, eps.
    4.- Name of Company: "Pink for October"
    5.- You may include a tagline if you wish. An example could be: "International month for breast cancer awareness".

    Content
    1.- 200 to 250 words of content in two to three paragraphs.
    2.- Text should promote or publicize breast cancer awareness
    3.- It should be your own original work.

    Front-End and Coding

    In this phase, you should create the home page of a fictional site for our company, "Pink for October".

    1.-You can use any version of (x)HTML/XML and CSS. Although not mandatory, the following will be a plus:
    • Valid code
    • Accessibility
    • Neat code
    • Semantic code

    2.-You can use Javascript (including libraries such as JQuery)

    3.-It has to be usable even if Javascript is turned off.

    4.- You may (if you want) use the logos and/or text presented in previous areas of the contest.

    5.-You can use as many graphics as you wish, but the page in total can't weigh more than 700Kb (images, javascript, javascript libraries and any external files included).

    6.-It has to have a menu, even if the links lead nowhere. An example could be links to "What's PFO", "How you can help", "Facts about breast cancer".

    7.- No back end coding (php, asp, java, etc.)

    8.- Just 1 HTML file. If you want to show/hide different pieces at a time that's fine, but everything should be in one file with the exception of graphics and/or libraries and/or external files. Zip everything and send us the zip please!

    9.- It should work in all latest versions of Safari, Opera, FireFox, Chrome and Internet Explorer.

    Timing:

    The contest will start Sept. 21st and end Oct 9th.

    Logo: 1st week (from Sept. 21st to Sept 28th at 24:00 GMT)
    Content: 2nd week (from Sept. 29th to Oct. 5th at 24:00 GMT)
    Coding: 3rd and 4th weeks. (from Oct. 6th to Oct. 19th GMT)

    Prizes:

    A book of choice for each winner. Kits are not included.

    Results and winners announcement:
    End of October to early November.

    Submissions:
    E-mail to sitepointcompetitions@gmail.com.
    Include in your subject the name of the area you're competing in:

    Logo
    Content
    Front-End

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Just in case anybody has somehow missed this Global Announcement the:

    Pink For October [Logo] Competition is now Running! only until 28 Sept!


    You only have a handful of days still left to design the Logo and submit it. So you better get your fingers out if you are still thinking of entering and showing off your logo design skills, etc. This thread was also created also as a discussion about this 3-in-1 contest for anybody that has any specific questions regarding the rules and is competing, etc.

    Show me you actually do care for Breast Cancer awareness and have a go at entering something, and perhaps if you are lucky you also win a SitePoint prize for your Logo.

    We'll be looking forward to your entry Angelos, I am sure it will be great with your talents and so far the entries submitted for the logo are thin on the ground.

    So people all you need to do is get out your favourite graphics editor and show me you have a passion for web design and logo creativity - make sure you enter and your chances of success will be increase tenfold!

    Only about three days left to submit... so don't leave it too late and be kicking yourself for not entering.

    So yes, you can, but the logo competition ends on the 28th, so better get to work!
    Never grow up. The instant you do, you lose all ability to imagine great things, for fear of reality crashing in.

    Ding dong... round two!

    Pink For October [Content] Competition is now Running! only until 5 October!

    Ah, content; where you get to write good creative content about boobies, and the awareness of breast cancer. Highlighting how we all like nice healthy breasts - remember it's not just women that get affected by the cancer - and how to make more people aware of breast cancer in an engaging short piece of writing.

    Go on, put pen to paper or finger to keyboard and let's see some inspiring entries, surely you can string a few good paragraphs together.

    wow, Since I'm a newbie writer I'll try to join on the "content" contest. This is so exciting. I wonder what kind of book that I'll take if I win.

    Yes, do enter the 'Content' competition. Because for the previous 'Logo' competition; you probably could have counted the actual submissions on one hand, which is a shame... Since the SPF forum is apparently populated with a significant amount of people that "claim" they do commercial work within the Logo Design spectrum. Albeit not much physical evidence has been seen of that here [competition] so perhaps there were some exaggerating.

    Speaking to the throng; who else is going to step-up to enter the 'Content' contest, give it a try anyway. You never know, you might just win but you won't find-out unless you enter, and do your part to highlight Breast Cancer awareness with some good written content. You don't need to be a professional writer so long as you capture the spirit and express it in words, as per the competition guidelines.

    The deadline for the "Content" competition is looming [Midnight 5 October GMT] and so far there doesn't seem to be any submissions...

    It'd be silly not to enter something and let the prize go unclaimed! For surely, some more you can write something on Breast Cancer awareness (as per rules).

    I cannot enter (as I am an SPF Mentor), I am not a professional writer but even I'd have probably been able to whip something up worthy of entering into the "Content" competition.

    Hmm 200-words is hardly a great effort to write about to publicise Breast Cancer awareness. Even within this post I have just made, I have written over 110-words in length. So that's how easy it is to write something about Breast Cancer and boobies.

    Just in case the majority of you are still living in a cave and haven't heard the Pink for October [Coding] competition is now under-way:

    Pink For October [Front-end and Coding] Competition is now Running! only until 19 Oct!

    I know quite a lot of you claim you can design websites and "do it for a living" but I suspect many get their mothers to help them do their work and pass it off as their own. I am so convinced that I reckon most of you won't have the courage to enter this Coding competition for fear of being shown up...

    Are you going to prove me wrong and enter? Or just sit there in silence cowering or pretending you haven't seen this thread. Well the gauntlet has been thrown down.

    Come on guys this competition is to show others that you care about Breast Cancer awareness and to show-off your web design and coding skills. We had plenty of people commenting earlier this year about the ridged "Pure HTML and CSS" competition and how they'd love to have a competition where they could have more flexibility and use JS and images, etc.

    Well now here is your chance, a call to action, don't deny yourself and show some backbone and enter.

    For someone who isn't much of a writer / designer ...

    Am I cool to just use a bunch of Lorem Ipsum, perhaps sprinkled with some facts from NBCF?
    var details = {
    . . web: "afterlight.com.au",
    . . photos: "jvdl.id.au",
    . . psa: "usethelatestversion.com"
    }

    Lorem Ipsum is fine to me... It is the design and the code and the effects that we care of
