I'm pretty sure Marta that the rules are posted along with the first challenge for this contest and not before. We do have to keep you all "twitterpated" after all.

~~Waving hello to TJ and Beth~~ :p

I spoke to JulieO this afternoon and she's working on a new Q&A that basically takes the old Q&A and adds any questions she received during the last contest. But basically, the contest runs 4 weeks. Each week you will be given a challenge, it might be to design a kit using a specific palette, or a theme. You'll all be given the same amount of time to create the kits, then members will be allowed to download the kits and vote on their favorites. A certain percentage will move on to the next round.

It's a great way to expose your designs to a lot of people. I know I've kept my eye on other sites' contests and contacted designers after the contest was over if I liked their work.

Thanks for the info Lorri. I did have a browse of the 2007 contest threads to try and get an idea of the format of the contest, your info has helped my curiosity a lot LOL!!
Thanks

I think I want to try it too. I've never really designed anything, but I keep thinking I want to start. Gotta start somewhere, right?

Woohoo, this is exciting and I can't wait for the fun to begin! I just wanted to re-emphasize something Lori already mentioned.

Even if you're not the contest winner(s), don't get discouraged because we hired a few designers a few months AFTER the contest ended, when we had a need to add to the staff. So you never know... give it your best - the whole experience is a great way to grow as a designer.

Good luck to everyone!

I can't say for sure right now, as I have to wait closer to the deadline if I can commit or not, but it sounds like fun
