calling all artists.

Alright. So, I wanted to open this up to the fans on LiveJournal and MySpace too.

I'm calling on all you designers/artists/creative minds out there... I need some artwork!!!

I'm looking for 2 things:

#1: An official FTYCWP logo.

This can be a photoshop creation, or a simple graphic using Paint, or a font, or anything! I have no real direction I'm looking for so the possibilities are endless. But it's high time that there is a recognizable official logo for the boards, b/c they've never had one. You can submit your creations to me via email, at alycia715@comcast.net (please do not post them here) with subject line FTYCWP CONTEST ENTRY and when I pick my favorites, I'll probably put up a poll and you guys can vote on your favorites. The winner will be announced, and that logo will appear on all the FTYCWP store pages, as well as in the news fader, and most likely on several pieces of merch too! And last but not least, the winner will receive a neat freebie from me, in appreciation! With all submissions, please include your email address *and ftycwp member name!*

Also, DO NOT send me a tiny little jpg file. I need bmp or png files, in large format. Remember, if it's huge I can shrink it down without losing much resolution. But if it's small, I can't blow it up b/c it'll look all weird. A few rules: if you are using photos in the design and they are not your own, please try to get permission from the owner if you can. If you are using any of Matt's lyrics in the design, please try not to use too many. Lyrics are okay just don't go overboard. Lastly, have fun! Get crackin!!!

#2: A design to be featured on items in a brand new FTYCWP store, soon to be launched.

I'm looking for something featuring a photo of Matt-- something cool. With text, without, whatever your wonderful minds come up with. This design does not have to incorporate "FTYCWP" on it, just make it about Matt. Clever is good, fangirly is not. I'm looking forward to what you come up with! Bear in mind, this image will be on shirts, hats, mugs, clocks, etc etc etc. Also, some items can have artwork on the back as well (tshirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, baseball t's, etc) so feel free to include a separate design to incorporate on the back of the tshirt as well. The winning design will be featured all over the new store! Same as before, you can submit your creations to me via email, at alycia715@comcast.net (please do not post them here) with subject line FTYCWP CONTEST ENTRY and when I pick my favorites, I'll probably put up a poll and you guys can vote on your favorites. The winner will be announced, and that logo will appear on all the FTYCWP store pages, as well as in the news fader, and most likely on several pieces of merch too! And last but not least, the winner will receive a neat freebie from me, in appreciation! With all submissions, please include your email address *and ftycwp member name!*

Also, DO NOT send me a tiny little jpg file. I need bmp or png files, in large format. Remember, if it's huge I can shrink it down without losing much resolution. But if it's small, I can't blow it up b/c it'll look all weird. A few rules: if you are using photos in the design and they are not your own, please try to get permission from the owner if you can.

I realize that some of this might be unclear so feel free to post questions and I'll help you out as much as I can with anything you're asking. Once again, don't post your designs in here, you don't want people stealing your ideas! :P

I'm not sure on a due date yet... I'm going to see how submissions go. I'll let you know of a deadline when I decide on one. But for now, the contest has officially started!

Can't wait to see your beautiful designs. Feel free to collaborate on something and submit a joint entry. Your work will be on display for people to buy and show their Caplan love!

Also, feel free to enter as many times as you like.

Have fun, and good luck!

ETA: Do not use any of Matt's official photography (i.e.: the Demo cd booklet, Overtones cd booklet, website press photos, etc.)
