Your super awesome Graphicriver Community Mods & Friends have decided to throw a little competition! This is an Unofficial competition that is not being run by Envato – it’s being run by the Mods: quickandeasy, Dzinc, PatrikL, HarveyDesign, silenceplease.

What’s up for grabs?

  • $150 (from Graphicriver Mods & Friends via Paypal)
  • $50 Marketplace Credit (from Envato)
  • 12 month NEW Tuts Premium subscription (as you probably know, Tuts Premium is way more awesome now)
  • 1 Month free advertising for your winning item on Flyerheroes.com
  • Competition badge

So, the brief:

Magazine Ad Templates are selling really well, so to spur on the growth of this item type, we want you to design and upload as many Magazine Ad Templates Items as you can.

Obviously your item should meet the Print Template Upload Requirements.

You item should be submitted to the Magazine Category.

Only one item will be eligible to win.

What will items be judged on?

We, the Graphicriver Mods, will judge the items on their usability, flexibility, preview presentation and general design quality.

The more usable and practical your item is, the more people can use it and therefore the more usable & flexible your item is.

Preview presentation is essential for salability. The better your item is mocked up and presented to reflect it’s quality, the higher the chance of purchase.

When/How can I submit? When’s the deadline?

Submissions start February 7th and the deadline for entry is February 24th. Your item MUST be uploaded, reviewed and on sale in your portfolio by the deadline date to be eligible for entry.

To submit your entry, simply post your preview image in this thread after it is accepted. Eligible submissions can only be accepted after February 7th.

The Winner will be announced on the Forums March 7th and then published on Notes.

Good luck!!!

To prevent any confusion regarding the creation date of the previous thread, we’ve decided to start a fresh one, thus keeping correct/better track of the competition timeline, as of today’s official announcement.

If someone wants to learn from scratch the process and guidelines for designing something like this, where can they find good tutorials? What would one search for? Maybe by next year’s competition i will be able to enter :)

Nice, but I have a question for this: Is it best to use InDesign or Photoshop? InDesign seems to be more appropriate but I think that more buyers are comfortable with photoshop. When I look in the flyers category, I see almost only PSD files…
