My Pixel Winter Contest

Tue Dec 10, 2013, 2:22 PM
Time has finally come to have our very own official pixel art contest to give away some prizes and share the love with pixel community!
Christmas and winter overall is, at least for me, a very merry time of the year - families come together to celebrate Christmas, children play outside and have fun building snowmen. We all celebrate this time of the year differently with our own traditions. And this is what we want to see from you. It doesn't matter if you are a pixel art wizard or someone who tries it for the very first time, create something awesome in pixel art and share your idea of a perfect winter with us.


Deadline


You have almost one whole month to create your entry for this contest. Contest runs from 12th of December until 9th of January.


Rules


But before you start we have some rules for you to follow.
1. Entry has to be created for this contest and can't be taken from your old work.
2. You can't use any pre-made templates, bases, etc
3. Entry has to be pixel art - no gradients, anti-aliasing.
4. Entry has to be related to Christmas or winter time.

I like idea of contest very much, and want to attend - but I'm not much into square composition...
Can we bend restrictions a bit adding 20 pixels wide, while removing some from height?
Somthing like – 320x200 or 320x256, 240 (standard lowres resolution - still used on all retro machines c64, atari, amiga computers and all 8/16bit consoles)
kind regards
jok

What they heck is up with all the weird submissions there? Some have nothing to do with Christmas, or Winter for that matter. And others aren't pixel. )))):

I just tried to submit my entry using the link in the desciption, but it actually didn't put it into the contest category, so maybe there is still some kind of bug.

I've never done one of these before, so is it supposed to be in the regular category section where you submit?

I, too, have a question - what about animations? Are we allowed to animate things or does it have to be static? Thanks in advance for answering : )
