Contest for designers/animators, prizes and creative group selection

Illustration store

Illustration store announces a monthly contest. This contest is not for the sake of competition rather than to demonstrate skills and creativeness. The best applicants will be rewarded, and the best ones of them will enter PFD's creative team.


So, you need to design two animated banners (or more). We will be accepting banners during the first three days of every month.

Good banners will be rewarded with free pictures – from 1 to 5 pictures depending on how impressed we are. If you received "Thank you for participation" you may consider working on your skills and trying again. If you were given from one to five tubes, you did well or very well.

The best of the best will compete in October 2011 to be selected into PFD's creative group. Membership in this group gives the right for free use of a certain number of pictures (PFD is responsible for paying the artists for those tubes), deep respect of PFD's team and participation in online events for designers.

Notice for participants: PFD reserves the right to use the banners for advertising itself without indicating the copyrights of the artists and those who designed them. Please keep that in mind when you use scrap-kits in the banner and other extra material; the use of that material should not be forbidden by its owners.

Notice for artists: All prizes and gifts are added only through the PFD system, and this is also how authors are paid royalties. Therefore, prizes are free for the recipients, but artists always get paid for them from PFD's own budget.
