ABOUT THE CONTEST


As the unofficial birthdays database, we've been going for almost 8 years, but we still don't to this day have an official stamp that can be used by us or anyone else. In order to change that, we're holding a stamp contest, so here's where you guys come in and hopefully design a stamp for us!

What we're looking for


:bulletred: A stamp with colours. In other words, for example, not a black stamp with just plain white text on. Having said that, neither does your stamp need to look like a rainbow! Also, something that has birthday related things incorporated into it.

:bulletred: You can create either a static stamp or an animated one. It really doesn't matter what you choose to do. However, both static and animated stamps must include the words "dA birthdays" (please make sure the A in dA is capitalised and not written as "da" or "DA").


A few ideas


:bulletblue: Our slogans "Birthdays 365 days a year" or "Celebrating deviants' birthdays"

:bulletblue: Emoticons

:bulletblue: Birthday related things eg. balloons, cake, candles etc


THE PRIZES


:winner:

1st Place Winner


:points: 650 Points OR 3 month Premium Membership

2nd Place Winner


:points: 400 Points OR 1 month Premium Membership

3rd Place Winner


:points: 400 Points OR 1 month Premium Membership


Don't know what Points are? Points can be used on deviantART to purchase Premium Memberships, prints, devWEAR or even shared with other deviants. You can build them up and save them for something big or simply spend them on smaller things. To read more on Points please see about.deviantart.com/points/

Thank you to all the kind deviants that kindly donated Points to us so that we could offer prizes <3

You don't have to use the exact template I linked, just as long as the template you're using looks like all the other stamps with the edges and all, if you know what I mean.

You send the note to *birthdays :D
