uNet gifts contest
3:37 PM
The contest is over. The results will be announced on April, 7

It is well-known that our nearest plans include uNet full launch. Social connections between the users are going to be implemented there. But what kind of communication is that, if there are no gifts, presents and other stuff to express your emotions. I mean small graphic images, which can be exchanged among users (example).

We would like our presents to be the most beautiful and original. That is why we suggest all of you to become a part of gifts-creation process within this contest. This is a contest for those who can and love painting. The purpose of it is to paint an original gift for the upcoming uNet project.

Participating in the contest will not only bring you nice gifts. Your portfolio will be enriched as well.

We accept your projects till April, 1, 2011

The sources of the projects (images with the transparent background) will be seen only by the administration. The users of the website will be able to see and evaluate thumbnail previews (they are created automatically). It guaranties that your projects will not be spread on the web before the contest is over.

Projects verification
