24 January: CNY Red Packet Design Contest

In other languages: th zh-tw ja

Tank Commanders!

Chinese New Year is almost here, and we know that you're all getting ready to get those red packets filled with free money.

But we see a problem here: so far, there aren't any red packets around with cool designs like tanks running across Sacred Valley, or a closeup of a Type 64...

The Contest

The Red Packet Design Contest is being held in the forums right now!

As you know, tank-inspired red packet designs aren't available anywhere, and it's a real shame. That's why we want you to participate in our contest and start creating some.

The rules are simple: to participate, each player should design the front cover of a red packet, and submit their entry in the contest forum thread. Creativity is greatly encouraged, but we require four things to be fulfilled in order to be considered as a potential winner:

  1. Submissions are required to fit a size of 300 x 500 pixels.
  2. Submissions should be uploaded to a image hosting site and linked to your forum post using [IMG] tags.
  3. Submissions must have a red background (since it's supposed to be a red packet design!)
  4. Submissions must feature these three elements:
    1. '2014',
    2. 'horse', and
    3. 'tank'

So what do you get if you win? Since it's a Chinese New Year-themed contest, here are the prizes for the top three winners:

  • 1st Prize: 3,888
  • 2nd Prize: 2,888
  • 3rd Prize: 1,888

You now have everything you need to know to participate. Now, go and make some awesome red packets!
