contest for 200k! (in Contests)

QBOddBird October 30 2005 2:30 PM EST

I have to have an artistic backdrop with a Western theme for my showchoir group by tomorrow, so come up with something. Prize is 200k, unless you do something *extraordinary* - in which case I'll up it to 500k. Worthwhile? yes. If I see something I really like, I'll point it out, and you can model further entries after it. I accept any number of entries per person. The dimensions of the backdrop are about 4x8 - come up with something for that. Thanks!

entries are looking good so far. I have a few ideas for the ones in there - if I take multiple portions from each entry, everyone'll get a share of the prize, but the one I take the most from will get the full 200k. I'm needing more western background - ish stuff now, since an idea is developing in my head...the whole sunset/cactus/horses or whatever bit. If you can toss a little humor in, that'll probably sway the odds in your favor, as well - but remember, this is something that'll go up in front of a large audience - nothing crude or unusual. Keep giving ideas! This is fantastic!

I might have a friend of mine try to make some, check kitties user pic for the things he can do with a simple image :)

I'm hoping for backgrounds...sunset, cactus, etc. I'll be using at least one of these entries I've gotten so far, so someone has already won at least 100k, 200k if theirs is the one I use the most...please, though, continue posting! I need all the help I can get!

4*8 is in inches?

so that would be 10 * 20 cm?

IndependenZ October 31 2005 1:52 PM EST

Something like these?

QBOddBird October 31 2005 5:42 PM EST

Those are *exactly* the kind of thing I'm looking for - western backgrounds, Independenz. The background I'm doing is made of two panels, 4x8 total, 2x8 individual. Trigun, I'm using one of your pictures for one of the panels, so at the end of this contest, I'll be sending you 200k - 200 more will be sent to whoever gets me a good background by tomorrow or Wednesday *AT LATEST*. I have a show on Friday and have to be finished with these before then....wish me luck! And help out by sending in entries! Thanks for all the wonderful ones I've received so far!

AdminShade October 31 2005 5:44 PM EST

alas my friend is way too busy atm, otherwise he could have made you a wonderful background...

QBOddBird October 31 2005 5:49 PM EST

=\ that's a huge shame. Anyways, to answer your earlier question, it's 2x8 feet vertical for the remaining panel - convert that to inches/centimeters however you like. That's the dimensions that the last panel will be, so it'd be helpful to send pictures that are roundabout those dimensions - however, they can still be entered if they aren't, since I end up taking artistic license with these pictures anyways. (^>^)
