  Old  iPhone-sized Wallpapers

Name of the contest: Give me lots of little wallpapers!
Deadline: Friday 17th August 2007, at 6pm BST (GMT+1)
Prize & Delivery method: $5 per wallpaper chosen paid through paypal

Contest brief:
I'm looking for cool little wallpapers for an iPhone (320*480 pixels). Contest rules state I must offer $50+ for this type of contest so I'd like to propose that I choose ten winners who'll each get $5 per image. The same person can win more than once, so don't be afraid to submit a big bunch of entries.

Colours/Inspiration:
Colours aren't too much of an issue. We all love vastly different wallpapers depending on who we are, what mood we're in, etc - so as wide a variety of submissions as possible would be appreciated. Subtle colours, in-your-face illustrations, photos, etc; I like everything.

Other information:
  • Please provide the .psd and any associated fonts sized at 320*480 pixels (regular 72dpi).
  • Do not even think about submitting material which you don't hold copyrights to.
  • Winning entries agree to give me whole (and sole) rights to use the image.
  • If less than (or equal to) 10 entries are submitted, I will divide the $50 equally between the members involved as a thank you.

Contact information: Just PM me here, I'm on throughout the day (British time) and I'll try to reply as soon as possible.

Excellent, thank you very much Bazza! The contest now runs for one week, so please get your entries in.

Tom, it's wonderful to see your interest in this and a great first submission. My only issue with your image is the lack of a capitalised letter S in JavaScript, other than that it's lovely. And yes, I love JavaScript as well.


I would like to remind everyone however that I'd like to go broad-ranging in the styles of designs used. If you'd see it on a 'normal' desktop wallpaper, then chances are it'd also work in this format. I particularly like tactile images; photographs work great in this context, so do character illustrations over plain backgrounds. For inspiration, just browse around any large online art gallery (DeviantArt, InterfaceLIFT, etc) or get inspired by colours, textures, items around you.

Just for some visual cues (but really, just go wild with ideas) here's a sample of what I like:
(Mostly photography because that's what I have to quickest to hand)
Really looking forward to the week ahead.
