Define real in this case. Real as in real life? Or real as in a real benefit for one of our teams

The article says something about "up to and including a stat increase on one of your players" or something... anyways, my question is: what do you mean by "logo", a big picture like a splash screen (hence the 400*400 size) or a small logo like this one: Image ?

Ok, it may not matter that much since if one just made a big one it could be rescaled, but some things are just not fit for being rescaled, small details fx...

10x8 or 8x10 inches at 100-300 DPI

MixX is right up to and including a stat increase on one of your players could be money for a team maybe a new blitzer whatever.

I wrote that article and it was approved by Christer, so it's legitimate. As to your questions...

The prize is real, but it would most likely have to conform to normal team building rules, e.g. you can't just add +ST to your player on top of your other skills without first earning the SPPs needed for the next skill level, so the prize will not be "instant +ST", it would be more like "guaranteed 6+6 on next skill roll". All details to be finalised by Christer.

On the logo, your submission will need to be a maximum of 400 pixels in either dimension, but that size is only for display purposes in the competition. You won't need to worry about resolution or picture quality so much, because the intention is to turn the JPG into a vector-based file format (TIFF, EPS etc) for use in an infinite variety of different sizes. This is why it was specified that complex pictures are out, because they are hard to vectorise. If you have your own AI, EPS or TIFF file with all vector-based graphics (no bitmaps) as well as the submitted JPG, that would add greatly to your chances of winning (because it would mean less work for us!). I would suggest using Adobe Illustrator to create your logo submission.

Also, if anyone needs a hand with image formats, you have no shortage of people to ask. Post any questions here and some helpful soul will surely smile down upon you.

This is my first attempt. I don't know if this is where we are supposed to post these or not. I can alter it if need be, in case there are some errors in it.

So here's a question (brought up by redskins). Do we submit logos here or is there another location. There's no mention of where or how to submit in the article, as far as I can see.

Just in case this is the place, here's my:
- submission (4k .gif)
- small design sample (21k .jpg)
- large uncompressed design sample (120k .png)
- outlined vector .eps (186k .eps)

Also, is it limited to one entry per coach? (Yes, I really want my favorite 31 SPP lineelf resurrected that badly)

The entires are not limited to one per coach. You may submit as many as you want.

Redskins311: Your logo is using bitmaps that are hard to scale (the texture in the letters) and the dice icons are more than likely copyrighted. Both these points make your chances of "winning" much lower. The usage of non-original artwork disqualifies your entry entirely.

how long before you choose the winner?

oh, and why the "no copyright" part? Very Happy (since the entire site is in violation of copyright laws anyway as far as I know, I'm no expert so I might be wrong though)...

Note that I think it's fine, since (and maybe that's why?) it would be a shame if this was a "find-a-cool-pic" contest instead of a creative contest!!
