Ok guys, it’s time for a new Contest and this one should be a fun one. Last contest was easy enough; Like the Roxie Cards Facebook page and be entered to win a Revised Dual Land. This one is going to be a little more challenging, but more fun.
The theme for this contest is Magic at the Movies. In this contest, we are looking for people to submit a mock movie poster based on a Magic card. More specifically, the name of the card must be incorporated into the movie title and the same art for the card must be used. You can use any editing program you like. Photoshop is helpful but if you don’t have Photoshop, look in to getting Gimp, a free Image Editor similar to Photoshop.
We are looking for a mix of things to pick our winners. Creativity is key, but not always important. If there is a funny mock up or even original art reinterpreted from the original (we must be able to look at the new art and tell what card it is without seeing the name), that would be desired.
So here are the details:
- Each person is allowed to submit 2 pieces for consideration. The first 2 will be considered so if you send any after that, they won’t count (but if they are good, they will be featured on the site).
- Each selection must be from Modern and up. While older cards and art are nice, we wanted to keep some limitations on what to work with.
- Title of the card must be used as title of the movie. There are some examples below.
- Be a fan of Roxie Cards on Facebook. You can click here and Like the page. Conversely, if you don’t have a FB account, then you don’t have to like the page to still be considered.
- Work must be new and done by you. All work submitted may be used for the site and Facebook page. Also, nothing too offensive or vulgar.
- Contest will run until Midnight EST of Sunday, June 17th. Any entries submitted after that may not be considered. Winner will be picked out that following week.
- Must have a least 10 entries for the contest to go live. This is a simple requirement but we’d like to make sure people enjoy this contest and there is enough interest.
- Open to US and Canada residents only.
Now to the best part, the prizes.
There are prizes for the top 3 posters. We are doing a Miracle themed prize pool and Third place will receive one of each Blue Miracle form Avacyn Restored; Temporal Mastery, Devastation Tide, and Vanishment. Second place will receive the White Miracle set; Entreat the Angels, Terminus, and Banishing Stroke. First place will receive the Red Miracle package but with an added bonus, the mythic rare will be Foil! That means First place will win a FOIL Bonfire of the Damned, a regular Reforge the Soul, and regular Thunderous Wrath. This is a total prize value of approx. $110. Not a bad deal. If we get enough response, we will add more prizes to the prize pool.
Here are a couple examples to give you guys an idea of what to do. These are pretty basic but they give an idea. There are really no limits and feel free to add names and the typical movie credits at the bottom of the posters like real movie posters.
