Spring Theme Player Card Drawing Contest!

Happy March, Panda Pals!

Let's get this month off to a great start with the first contest of 2012 - a Spring Theme Player Card Drawing Contest!

This goal of this contest is to design and submit a drawing of a player card background using the template of a player card provided. We recommend you use this template, since it shows the placement of where the Panda image appears on top of the Player Card and how it will cover the design.

The theme of your background should be Springtime. If you like, you can suggest a simple animation for your background (for example, the falling snow on the village scene in last year's Winter Festival background.)

For hand-drawn entries, we suggest that you first print a copy of the template, and then create your drawing on that. Hand-drawn images will need to be scanned into your computer or turned into a digital picture using a digital camera so they can be emailed to us. If you use a camera to take a picture of your drawing, make sure it is well-lit and in focus. We want to be able to see your drawing at its best!

All entries must be emailed to us in the format of a digital image (in one of the following formats: jpg, gif, tiff, bmp, pdf, png). Entries that are not in one of those formats will be disqualified.

There is a limit of one entry per email address (the one you used when you created your panda) per day. Entries must be received at contest@pandanda.com no later than 11:59pm PST on Wednesday, March 14, 2012. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, March 21st in my Blog.

Prizes:
One Grand Prize will be awarded by our panel of judges.

The Grand Prize winner will have their design turned into an actual player card background by our graphic artists to be used in the game, and will also receive:
  • a 6-month Elite Membership Gift Certificate
  • 5000 Panda Power
  • 200 Panda Gold

The really cool part is that the winning design will feature the winning Panda's name on the card - which could even make your Panda pretty famous - who knows? The winner's new Player Card Background will be available during the Easter Egg Hunt Festival that begins on March 30th.

To submit your entry (have your parent or guardian help you):
