Contest 06/2019: 100 contests! BEST OF THE BEST!

  • contest_2019-06.png


    We reached a huge milestone! :clap: The 100th SP-Studio contest will be something special, because there is no topic. You can upload any picture you want. Just pick your personal favorite! What's the one most creative picture you have ever created? What artwork are you really proud of? I know it's difficult to choose, but let's just combine a beautiful collection to celebrate the 100th contest.

    1. Create a SP-Studio picture (or choose an old one)
    2. Upload your unedited picture UNTIL JUNE 20th 2019
    3. On June 21st VOTING will start here on this page
    4. On July 1st the winner will be announced

    The winner gets a free wish for a SP-Studio item of his or her choice. This will be the last contest with this 1st prize until the new SP-Studio is finished. I want to minimize the time I need to spend on other things because the development takes so long. But I will continue with the contests just for fun and make sure to share the winners on social media.


    Rules for pictures:


    Your picture must be at least 300×300 px big (not the small size). You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so don’t edit with additional software. No cutting, rotating or color changes. Of course it must be your own creation! But it can be an old picture you already uploaded for another contest. This month has no specific topic – just show your most creative picture! Let’s celebrate the 100th contest by looking at the best of the best. :)

  • To be brutally honest, I'm a little bit dissapointed by the overall quality of the pictures. They are alright, don't get me wrong, and there are some really awesome creative pics, but most of them I would not call "The Best of The Best". They are just... meh...


    Now I know that not everyone is Ilidorf, Caribou or Joker, but come on guys, I'm sure you can do better than that! Show us some creativity, some talent! Experiment with SP-Studio, push the boundaries, use your imagination for pete's sake! Just look at Art Vandelay's, or Jareen's, or even mine entry, This program gives you so much possibilities!

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • I kind of agree, which is why I sometimes get a bit annoyed when I see entries that win that seem like they were done as an afterthought. Obviously, this is all in good fun, but i like seeing entries that really push the envelope with the items at our disposal win. When I was doing the Wu-Tang logo, which I had done for a previous contest, I had to use a lot of different items just to get that very specific shape. That meant really thinking outside the box. But that's what i find most fun about this site. You seemingly have a limited number of items at your disposal, but if you combine these items in ways you might not have thought, you can create almost anything.

  • I see those problems as well. When some do their best to use the items in a creative way and a rather simple picture gets more points this can be annoying. As long as it is an open vote I guess we cannot avoid things like that.


    At least the top spots look creative: These are the results of the 100th contest!


    Congratulations to the winners! It was close...

  • I am a bit in a hurry, because I will be away for the weekend. I just uploaded the new content update but I am not sure if I manage to start the contest. So... if it's not online during the next hour it will be online on Monday. Sorry. :(

  • It's cool Janina, have a nice weekend. :)

  • I'm back, tired, but it was a lot of fun. It was the 19th (wow, we're old) annual meeting of my German South Park community, and even though many of us don't watch the show anymore we're still good friends. I rented a scout cabin for us which was pretty awesome.


    Here's the new topic so you can start to work on pictures: Comedy Movies! A forum thread will come soon, I still need to finish the new icon. But you can already submit your picture.
