Community Contest | Create your wallpapers

Beloved community,

Got excited about having a community contest? Absolutely, we did, too! We thought hard about it, and are ready to kickstart its first round! Artists and hobbyists, get your brushes out, make some cool stuff to blow our community’s mind away!

What are we anticipating?

Themed desktop wallpapers that we can put on Spectrum! From prototypes to the very Spectrum that will be the star of your desk, we want them to rock the best design and features picked by our community and the most outstanding artwork created right by you guys.

How can I jump right into it?

Step 1: Pick a theme

We handpicked three themes tailored to fit Eve, Spectrum, and our community.

  • Triangle
    Look up at the top-left corner, see it? A triangle is enjoying a pleasant time here together with you! Triangle consists of the flipped pyramid in our branding: we place our community at the top, and corporate bull$#!@ at the bottom. What is relevant about the triangle in your eyes?
  • Speed
    Spectrum is blazing fast because of its low response time and high refresh rate; this is one way to represent speed. How do you perceive speed?
  • Together
    At this very moment, we are all together – we are a community. What does being together mean to you? How will togetherness shape our future?

Step 2: Create your image

Start with one of these concepts to make it your own! We have prepared a package to include Eve color palette and logos, and a few wallpapers to spark your inspiration.

Step 3: Show them here

You can contribute up to one entry per theme; please post it directly in the reply. We have some rules and a format listed down below that you need to follow.

Step 4: You get to choose

You can fine-tune your submissions until 18th October 23:00 Helsinki time [this has been extended to 25th October 23:00 Helsinki time], when we will close this topic. We will begin voting in the following week to decide our winners.

Prizes

We will offer a prize pool consisting of 150 USD worth of Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation gift cards (winner’s choice). We intend to spread our prizes among all themes; moreover, the exact distribution will be decided later based on the number of entries we receive.

EDIT: I made the original art in 8k, and never zoomed in enough to see that the edges made by converting the provided triangle to a vector made them not straight at the corners, just cleaned that up.
