Announcing the Challzine Favicon Contest

Challzine doesn't have a favicon.  I've tried to design one, but I don't like my feeble attempts at art.  Since there are so many wonderful artists that contribute to Challenger, I asked Guy if we could have a contest for the best favicon.

Guy said,  "What's a favicon?"

After I explained that it's the icon that appears on your desktop for programs or folders.  Also in your Start Menu if you are using Windows.  But the favicon I am looking for is the one that appears next to the sites you have bookmarked.  It also shows up in the URL address line of your browser (unless you use Internet Explorer). 

Guy said, "Sure, why not?" 

So... here are the specs.  The facicon must be in BMP format.  The large favicon is 48px X 48px; medium is 32px, and small is 16px (small is the size for the address bar and "My Favorites" faviicon).  If you design the large size, we can resize it, but you may want to try it yourself to see how well it shrinks.

You may enter as many appropriate favicon designs as you wish.

Send your entries to:

Deadline:  The next issue of Challzine -- or December 31, 2008 -- whichever comes first. All entries will be displayed in the next issue along with voting instructions.

The prize:  Our undying gratitude and the honor of being The Challzine favicon artist.  And Guy will throw in a copy of... something you'll enjoy reading.

Go now... make art.
