Holiday Theme Contest!
Posted December 4, 2008on:
Hey everyone, ’tis the season – the Holiday season! To celebrate, we are having a Holiday theme contest and the winner will receive a brand new 8GB iPod Touch! Nice gift on the threshold of holidays, isn’t it?
So let’s go through the details, shall we?
- Submit your theme:
From today Dec 5th, 2008 to
Dec 19th, 2008Dec 26th, 2008* (submitting period), create a Holiday/Festivities theme (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years etc) using our Theme Creator.
When saving the theme, tag it “contest_08” and you will be automatically entered to the contest.
You can enter as many themes as you want!
*Deadline is extended for one week so people will have more time to create post Christmas themes – you can still win even if you enter late!
- The finalists:
From Dec 12th, 2008 to Jan 3rd, 2009 (rating period) we will count the number of people who used the theme during that period and get the top 10 finalists.The submitting period and rating period will overlap for one week. That means we won’t count the number of people who used the theme the first week of the submission period so even if you enter a little late, you still have a chance to win! Also people won’t have to wait to use the themes before the contest ends – just wait for one week OK? 🙂
- The winner:
Among the top 10, we (the Coolchaser team) will choose the best theme based on the following criteria:
a) use of color
b) use of creative graphics
c) use of space
d) sense of style
e) accurate representation of the Holiday/Festivity spirit
The creator of that theme is going to be the winner!
- Announcement:We will announce the winner on Jan 10th, 2009! Did I already say that the winner will receive a brand new 8GB iPod Touch? 😀
There are some rules to this contest that you should be aware of:
- You need to be older than 13.
- All the materials used on the theme should either be your original or you have permission to use it from the original owner.
- Make sure your CoolChaser account has a valid email so we may contact you. (so if you win we can send the prize to you!)
- Entries containing lewd, offensive or pornographic content will be automatically disqualified, at CoolChaser’s sole discretion.
- All contestants agree to allow us to promote them and their
themes in any marketing related manner without any further compensation.
- No mechanically reproduced mail-in entries are allowed and any use of robotic, automatic, programmed or the like entry methods will void all such entries by such methods.
But other than that, anybody from anywhere around the world can enter this contest (except for us – the CoolChaser team and their families!).
Happy competition and may the most creative one win!
Notes: Make sure you guys follow the instructions on the blog, or else you might not be properly entered in the contest. Putting “contest_08” on the title of the theme instead of tagging it, or “contest 08” without an underscore won’t be considered a valid entry.
Also, you can’t tag an old theme created before Dec 5th to enter the contest. It has to be a new one!
