IconBuffet “Earn my Tokens” Photoshop Contest


This contest is setup for Iconbuffet, a free icon exchange website. Members can earn the right to deliver sets to me by photoshopping some icons into an image! If you’re not a member of Iconbuffet you can sign up here.

Contest Description

I will receive 10 tokens on the 5th of May.
I have already planned out that I want to spend my tokens on these 6 sets:

Contest Rules & Guidelines

  • Choose any 3 or more icons from the icon sets listed above. You may combine various sets or stick to one.
  • Open up your favorite image editor (Photoshop / Illustrator / MS Paint, whatever!) and work your creative magic.
  • You may include a background image, landscape or photograph.
  • You may include text, captions or numbers.
  • You may not include other icons or object graphics.
  • Width of your final product should not exceed 500 pixels and your file format should be GIF, JPG or PNG.
  • Do NOT send me these icon sets unless you are announced a winner!!!

Entry and Winner Selection

To enter the contest, upload your completed Iconbuffet Photoshopped Contest image (your own server or free hosting service) and post a link to it within the comment section of this blog post. You may include a title and caption if you desire. DEADLINE is Thursday, May 10th!

Your images will receive brownie points for the following qualities:

  • Beauty
  • Humor
  • Originality
  • Creativity

Whatever you think people would enjoy and get a smile out of… I don’t expect them to be 100% professional. I also don’t expect you to spend hours on this contest, it’s just for FUN!

The overall winner will get their choice of which icon set to deliver to me. They will also get an added bonus for boosting their points — I will replace my referral link on ALL my websites and social networking sites, including the popular Iconbuffet VIRB group with YOUR referral link for the entire month of May!

The next 5 winners will be chosen to send me the rest of the Icon deliveries listed above, earning them points for the delivery! I know it’s sort of a lame prize but the contest is simple! If anyone would like to donate additional benefits / prizes for the winners let me know.

    what is considered an “object graphic”?

  • Mark <span>May 4, 2007 at 4:10 pm</span>

    Some examples of an “Object graphic” in my book would be an image of a person, place or thing that is pulled from Google Images, clip art, avatars, etc.

    You are however allowed to use 1 single photo, landscape or original background drawing in your entry which you place the Iconbuffet icons on top of.

    So for the most part — the only thing you should be copying & pasting or importing should be Iconbuffet icons.

    Not sure if the image I based it on violates the ‘object graphic’ rule, but I had fun creating it:

    Just wanted to pass along that my IB handle is “gswd” not SteveO. Otherwise you will be giving the prize to someone that did not enter, This is evidenced by my entries in the IB Blog Forum responses under my IB id. I apologize for any confusion this has caused you Mark.

  • gswd <span>May 18, 2007 at 9:52 pm</span>

    Like dude, when are you planning on requesting your set?
