[RESULTS] Polish Arabian Club Ad Challenge!

  • alt text

    Welcome to the first Polish Arabian Breeders and Fan Club Challenge.

    This Challenge is based around the idea of a promotional advertisement for your Arabian. All Images that are submitted will be included in a digital magazine featuring the Arabians of Equus. This challenge is open to all members and all strains of Arabians. Please include your horses strain somewhere in your advertisement.

    If you are in need of a Polish Arabian you can download a template from our clubroom post which you may use as is or tweak to your liking to make yourself a dream horse. Templates can be found in the thread linked below

    • All text is allowed on your image. Please save a text free copy of your image as well in case you are chosen for the cover since the cover will have its own text added.
    • Judges may submit images to this thread for inclusion in the magazine only. Judges images will NOT be submitted via the form for inclusion in judging in any way including the member voting. These images are only to help fill out the pages of the magazine. Members may also submit an additional 3 images besides their entries for magazine inclusion only. These additional images should be marked as for magazine inclusion only in bold in your post and MAY NOT be submitted via the form.

    Image size requirements:

    Image should be based on an 8x10 ( single page ad ) or 16x10 ( double Page ad ) Ratio. The image can be a different size but may need to be cropped in order to be included in the magazine. Templates for size are provided in case you need them. The easiest way to use these included templates is to paste your own image into them to create an image in the correct size Ratio. You can resize these templates but please be sure to maintain aspect ratio when resizing. You can also not use these size guidelines but your image may need to be cropped to fit the magazine format if you choose not to use them. If you need help with sizing you can post in the chatter thread and I will be happy to assist you.

  • Wow... I really didn't expect my entry to be chosen for the cover, as the quality was rather average, but.... You never know...:astonished:

    Thank you so much for hosting this challenge, Skye! I am very glad that I got the chance to take part in such a show, since this was my dream to some extent. :heart:
    I also appreciate the fact that you provided Image size templates for your show! They helped me a lot because I am really bad at it. And it was also interesting to use these as part of a small personal challenge when you need to create a picture in a limited form/space. A kind of test of creative and design abilities, which such a pleasant nostalgia for me, personally. I had a great time! :sunny:

    I sent you a message on the forum!

  • :sob: I'm so humbled that I got second place and a judges pick. Thank you to everyone who voted and put me up there with those iconic editing legends (Because that's not me, I don't know what I'm doing!) and also thank you to the judges who thought me worthy of another Arabian. The program expands! :bow:

  • Gratz to the winners :)

  • Thank you so much for hosting the challenge! <3

  • Congratulations to all the winners. :)
