The First State of the Sndbox Monthly Thumbnail Competition! [200 SBD in Prizes]

in #competition4 years ago (edited)


Today we’re excited to announce a thumbnail / landing image competition! Each Wednesday Sndbox does a newsletter - State of the Sndbox - to update the Steemit community on our progress and ongoing work. You may have seen our template that we’ve used for the past month since launching @sndbox. Going forward, we want to spice things up and invite Steemians to create a thumbnail that which will change every month!

Every Steemian is invited to submit a thumbnail / landing image using a few parameters (outlined below). The top submissions will receive SBD prizes and the winner’s image will be featured for each week of September’s State of the Sndbox posts!

Competition Rules

To be eligible for prizes, you must follow these simple instructions-

  • Design a landing image that is 1000 pixels x 600 pixels, uses the @sndbox color palette and has the title “State of the Sndbox” clearly legible.

  • Publish a personal post using the image, describing a bit of the inspiration, and use #sndbox in the tags so that we can find and upvote you!

  • Comment below with a link to your submission post.

  • Deadline is Wednesday, September 6, 2017 10am EST. Earlier submissions are recommended to receive more exposure!


SBD Prizes

  • First Place = 100 SBD - The winner’s image will be chosen by the Sndbox team and will be used on the following month’s State of the Sndbox posts. We will credit your name wherever we use your work!

  • Second Place = 70 SBD - Chosen by popular vote (from sndbox members)

  • Third, Fourth and Fifth Place = 10 SBD each - The next 3 highest upvoted images

ALL entries will be featured in a dedicated post with linked accounts. Everyone is invited to submit! Have fun, and best of luck!



These are my entries Sndbox thumbnail comp!

(I think I am the first person to enter! That's gotta count for something)

About my entries.

They are all basically the same with color and design changes. I have gone with a bubbly and happy feel to them using lots of colors on most of them. My personal favorite is number 1 as it is simpler and has a nicer look to it.








Hope you like them. If you do leave an upvote on the comment and my post (and follow me for more designs posts)

Have a great day and good luck to everyone else who is participating.

Hi. Thanks for giving us all the opportunity to create a Thumbnail for you. It's a great idea. I decided to make an animated gif for my entry.

That seems better to me.
