2010 Summer E Games "Design A Badge" Contest
As part of this year's Summer E Games, we are giving you the chance to create your very own badge for The Escapist!
It's no secret that members of The Escapist community love collecting badges, and it seems like every other day, someone comes up with an idea for a new one. Well, we think it's about time you put those creative energies to good use, and come up with your very own badge design! Members of The Escapist staff will choose a few of our favorites and then you, the community, will vote on which one you want to become a genuine, earnable badge.
Here are the ground rules:
- You must be a registered member of The Escapist. You can sign up for your free account by clicking here, or
Login with Facebook.
- The badges must be something anyone can earn - so no designing something that meets a narrow criteria (like having your birthday, living in your home town, and so forth)
- Your badge must be submitted with a name and the criteria to earn it
- The badge cannot be a pony or a replica of any of the other badges we have currently - this has to be completely new and original
- You MAY however post the same idea you may have had in another thread here on The Escapist
- Badges for negative behavior will be eliminated immediately - so no badges for "earned the most bans" or anything like that
- If you end up being the winner, we will create the badge, so don't worry about creating any art
The deadline for this contest is Tuesday, August 24th at 11:59PM EDT. The top badge ideas will be chosen and posted for voting.
All entries may not have appeared anywhere outside of The Escapist prior to this submission. Submissions automatically become owned by Themis Group, Inc. If you do not want us to own your entry, please do not submit it.
The winners will be decided based on the number of votes received. Voting will begin on Wednesday, August 25th and will end on Friday, August 27th at approximately 5PM EST.
If your badge is chosen, your badge art will be created, polished and placed into our system in the very near future for all to try to acquire. The winner will also get a 1 of a kind badge which will mimic the winning badge. This way, the winner can still acquire their own while attaining a badge nobody else will have.
