  Old  GasMoney Blog - 150$ Design Contest - 14 days! Join in!

OK i've tried to ask designers on what i want and need for my new blog project but haven't seem to get any results. So what better way than to start a contest on a forum with top notch designers. Plus i hear there hasn't been one in a while so its good for everyone.

So here go the details:
  • design must be 3 columns - far right for advertiments
  • crisp clean sharp colors
  • fluid - glossy - web 2.0
  • tabs for easy navigation (not huge)
  • prime spots for adsense or banners
  • recent comments and topics at top like shoemoney blog
  • logo for GasMoney with a unique look is a +
  • logo must be unique.
a few rules for the contest:

1) you can post more than 1 blog design with logo if you like.
2) must be custom and i must have full rights.
3) the contest will run for 14 days.
4) i hold the right to choose more than 1 winner if i like 2 designs/logo and i will pay both the 150. it seems fair if theres an issue with this i will not do it.
5) a good logo is a plus. the concept of it is a web master blog and things ill be sharing with other webmasters. the domain is GasMoney.net aka GasMoney Media so if you have a unique idea for the logo then ill be looking for that.
6) If for some reason i do not like any design i reserve the right to extend the contest 5 more days.

WINNER will get $150 through paypal only. i dont have other source of payment methods. i am verified.

some blogs that i really like are

leedodd[.]com
shoemoney[.]com


If you need anymore info please post and request it here or PM me. i hope to see good work and i will pick the winner.

good luck and hope to see some great designs!!

edit: since it has been pointed out i didn't follow the rules i would like the logo to have the concept for gas and money. something unique that people will remember.


************new added bonus ************

i will also ask the winner to design my network site. where i will list small banners and descriptions of my online real estate. if i like the blog design then i will def like your work so thats another plus. now lets get those designs going.

previews are a plus so i can add my 2 cents. please PM me no matter how many changes youve made. i always like to see how its going.

I will not approve this contest whilst this clause is included:


(or) until i choose a winner.
Should you decide to change it, I'll gladly approve the contest.
I do understand your concern about entries, so you may want to extend your deadline somewhat (I will be lenient on this if you need an extension during the contest, but obviously not if there are a number of entries already).

Sounds good, there is only one last thing I have to point out is our pricing restrictions found in the stick at the top of the forum.

http://www.talkfreelance.com/thread26793.html

One page design = $100
Logo = $50

Just so you know, Sitepoint has not only a listing fee, but also minimum requirements higher than here, so that's not the issue.

Steve, stick to your guns with the $100 prize. Any single page design should include a logo as standard. I think the thread that Jeff linked to was listing minimum prizes for a logo contest or a design contest, as two separate entities.

Since when do full page designs have the logo as an optional extra?!
