Community Contest | Wallpaper Stars

Beloved community,

It’s time for us to announce the winners of our community wallpaper contest!

A quick recap

We kickstarted our first community wallpaper competition at the end of September, where our members created their amazing wallpapers based on one of the three themes: Triangle, Speed, and Together. We received 40 incredible entries from the enthusiastic artists, designers, and illustrators in our community. A prize pool consisting of 150 USD worth of Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation gift cards (winner’s choice) was offered to reward our community creators. Our members voted to decide the winners on a per-theme basis; each theme’s highest voted entry will get a $30 gift card, and the second-highest voted entry of each theme will get a $20 gift card.

The winners

Some creator’s entries were so popular that they have won multiple prizes.

Just got my reward!
It is very nice to be noticed among such wonderful works (I saved several wallpapers to my collection). I’m new to this community, but I’ve already noticed that you guys are great. There are a lot of creative people who can prove themselves in many more competitions! I look forward to hearing more about Spectrum.)

Thank you very much for both my rewards! It’s probably the first contest I’ve ever actually won something in, so I’m feeling pretty lucky! :slight_smile:

The wallpaper contest idea was great! Pretty much all devices with a screen can benefit from a good wallpaper, and any artist who can make something and then make an image out of it can enter! Pure creative potential in a 4K rectangle :grinning:

What would people think about a skin design contest? (think dbrand) Essentially, you provide the template stencil, and we come up with a image, texture, or pattern that we think would look good. Just a thought.

I enjoyed this contest a lot, and I’m so happy I found out about Eve in general. I RECEIVED MY REWARD which was super cool (just in time for games’ sales :star_struck: :rofl:), but the best reward of all was to be a part of it.

I learned a lot while participating in the community about a bunch of stuff regarding screens, panels, chipsets, color, … a bunch of stuff :sweat_smile: and for that I’m grateful.

I’d love to see a Product sketch contest where people draw their dream gear in a piece of paper and post it I think that might be a lot of fun.

Just got my reward too!

Thanks for organizing this, a very good idea indeed. Looking forward to what comes next, and I agree with @Brendon_Leenheer, a skin design contest would be fantastic!!!

I’m not gonna lie - when I found this thread, the first thing I did was download all 42 of them. Each and every one looks fantastic, and I know I’d never have been able to choose any winners over any others, that’s for sure!

Congrats to everyone who won, and congrats to everyone who submitted some amazingly fantastic WPs!
