Yes, you're in the right spot. JulieO says she'll have a FAQ for you all by Monday. And then it's less than 2 weeks until the first challenge. Hooray! This is going to be so much fun.

Default Designer Contest Rules

Thank you for your interest in participating the Stone Accents Studio contest. The contest starts on September 4th and runs through October 2nd when the new SAS-y Ladies will be announced. We would like to have the top three finalists join the SAS design team with a store of their own. All contestants should understand that winning a design team spot means that they will be professional designers with all of the obligations and privileges associated with the position. Contestants are encouraged to blog about their entries and ask people to vote for them but giving away prizes in exchange for voting is prohibited. There will be 4 rounds with the top 75% moving on the next round. Any questions can be posted in this thread.


Entries will not be checked for quality but all kits must follow the industry standards as stated below.
Papers must be 12 x 12 at 300 dpi and saved as a jpg.
All embellishments must be 300 dpi and have a transparent background, the standard format is PNG.
You must include your TOU in each kit
There must be a preview of the entire kit included.

Quality Control
Check for stray pixels (select item, make a new layer above, stroke selection with a bright color, stray pixels will show up)
Color shifts- Stay within the color palette provided, black and white are always allowed.
Check the edges of your paper carefully to make sure that you brought all layers to the edge while designing the paper.
All elements must be on their on their own file.
No drop shadows on elements.
Size all of the elements properly, close to the size they should be.

You must post your entry in the Designer Contest gallery by 6 p.m. on the specified day. All entries must be hosted on your own file sharing account (4-Shared etc…) and must be available for download by the SAS members throughout the entire contest, even if you drop out or do not make it to the next round. All entries remain your property.

The voting will be done strictly by the SAS registered members. Since it is often difficult to pick just one favorite and to help offset the concerns that design contests become popularity contests members will be allowed to vote for more than one entry. They may only vote one time but they may pick more than one entry. Members will be encouraged to vote for no more than 3 entries but there is no way to limit it.

All times are Central Standard Time
The contest runs from September 4th and runs through October 2nd when the new SAS-y Ladies will be announced.
A theme or palette will be posted in the designer contest forum by 9 a.m. each Thursday.
Entries are due by 6 p.m. the following Monday
Voting starts at 6 p.m. Mondays
Voting closes at noon on Thursdays
Winners of each round will be announced by 9 a.m. Monday.

The most important rules of the contest are to let your creativity soar and to have fun!
JulieO

Yes, throughout the contest, the links can only be shown here. You're can still blog about your freebies, but instead of linking for 4Shared, you'd link to the gallery here, where your links are posted.
