Should Say: "Do Our Work For Us"

Instead of hiring a graphic designer/artist they ask the community to develop the logo and give away a HD4670? That is wrong on so many levels.

Actually, what you said is what's wrong on so many levels. If you read it right, it says that they will give away three DX11 cards (possibly HD5870)... one for each winner of the "Wallpaper", "Screen saver", and "IM chat icon" design contests.
The HD4670 is for the draw among the voters -> public that will vote for the best designs of each category.
Resuming:
- if you participate, you can win a brand new DX11 card
- if you only vote, you can win a HD4670

Sounds good to me...

Just to ask you guys... i've read the contest propositions... And one thing bugs me, do we HAVE to use those PNG's they supplied or not?!

Will enter definately, but to tell you the truth... user voting is bad :(

I'm looking to join this. Hope it works out...;)
@ miloshs: only the "background" graphic is optional, all else is a must.
Also, the "Powercolor" and "ATi" logos can only be resized, but proportion must remain the same and they must not be distorted in any way.

Well this is my submission.



I think it was the only one that was actually based on the Leo Platform aspect of the HD5xxx graphics cards, or that used the Fusion for that matter.;)
The Lion is an entirely original design based on the Traditional Asian style of lion sculpture. I wanted to make a 3D render too, but time didn't allow.:(
Please vote for me! You can check my sig for details.
Thanks in advance for your support.:toast:

Woot, I'm now on 68 votes.
It seems like some are cheating though, because they have half a 1000 votes after only a day and their designs a not even ones you could understand for having so many votes.
It sucks, especially working on this so long on this just to be pawned by cheaters... :shadedshu

Woops, sorry about that, there was just a full stop at the end that made it not work.
Thanks guys, I'm sitting at about 160 votes now and climbing.:rockout:
From what I see I'm now in 3rd place I think!:roll:
Please keep the votes coming!

EDIT: Well thanx everyone. It's over now and I reached 750 votes, but others were cheating and PowerColor, despite being reported to many times, did nothing about the cheaters. It was very clear that quite a few people were cheating, some gaining over 1000 votes overnight.
Oh well, that ends business for me w/ PowerColor. Won't be dealing with them anymore coz of how they've sucked w/ controlling and making this a fair competition and my unhappiness with the PowerColor 4890 PCS+ performance (among other things).
I think it's Sapphire &/or XFX that are making the best ATi cards now, so I'm gonna stick w/ them.
