There should be different awards given out for different sigs...weirdest, funniest, best use of Photoshop, etc...and a best in show or something to get first prize.

Also I think entries should be submitted anonymously or something so it'* fair to people who are newer or not as well-known...that'* just my two cents!!

I do graphic design for a living and would be willing to donate a free custom business card design as a prize...it can be a novelty business card or a serious one.

I'm in for the contest. I'd have to see what everyone else puts up before I go changing mine... No Photoshop for me... I just use Paintshop Pro which is very similar, but easier IMO.

Oh man, you guys are funny.

I'll do the "Non-PS" catagory, because I use GIMP . You should make it more of a "untouched" type thing.. or "unedited" instead of "Non-PS." As some here have said, they don't have Photoshop, but perhaps a different photo editing application.

Jim: I hope you were referring to 40kB, not 40kb, because that would be about 5kB .

I don't use PS (I've got Paint Shop Pro), I'm assuming the whole "photoshop" notion just refers to doctored/drawn images :P


I was going to go the pixel art approach, but final confirmation of whether we can use new pics or not?!

You have to use your own car in this contest, whats the point otherwise right? Your signature is generally a personal thing, so make it your car.

Two categories, "Digitally Edited" or "Non Digitally Edited", I figured the term "PS" would cover the nitpickers, but anyway, use software or don't use software, the point is to highlight your creative skills. (in whatever means)

There...I think that covers it.

More questions:

Can we enter more than once?
Are we going to do a non-car siggy contest, maybe just for honorable mention or whatnot?

Just wonderin'
