Contest Reminder: Weekly Recap Anniversary Giveaway!


This is a reminder to everyone that we have a contest going on (and if you’ve read the Weekly Recap, you would have known about it). Basically, you have to get a picture and place staff avatars within the picture, followed by sending points to the ‘lottery’ username. Here are more in-depth details (also, you only need one image, regardless of how many entries you do; more images do not increase chances of winning):

Part one, you must create an image superimposed with the avatars of the staff members (you can use either just one, or a combination of avatars). You don’t have to be a professional or anything, but it must, at least, show some effort. If all you have is Paint, that’s perfectly fine. Just be creative!

Part two? You will, then, have to submit points to the Lottery. Each lottery entry will be 250 points, with a maximum of 1000 points (4 lottery entries; please donate each 250 points separately).

The prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Prize: $50 PSN Giftcard
  • 2nd Prize: PS3Blog.net T-Shirt
  • 3rd Prize: Points refunded, plus another 500

For easy access to staff avatars (backgrounds removed), Tosh has prepared a zip off all of them here, except for Darrin’s, which is available here, but will need to manually remove the background stuff.

The contest ends July 31st at 11:59PM Arizona time. More details, and more examples of entrants so far, after the jump.

So far, Oly has maxed out his entry limit at 4 for the lottery. Adam T has one lottery entry (I’ll let using JibJab slide this one time :P). Ace is sitting at two, and Madagasca is at one entry as well (but still needs to make a picture). I will be submitting my points soon.

Here’s a list of the pics so far:

    Created a forum topic to link the two pics. Don’t really know how to properly edit a picture so guess that will have to do. And yes, that was done in Paint.

  16. #17 by EdEN on July 30th, 2010 [ 131365 Points ]

    And now I’ve donated the 1,000 in four 250 points entries. Hope I get one of the three prizes…
