Monday Freebie is Early and New Background Contest

Well we told you that you never knew what we would do here at DIP. We are giving away our Monday Freebie a little early and kicking off our new background contest. No, you do not have to enter the contest to get the freebie; and we really hope you enjoy being creative with them. This weeks freebies are taken from our newest package additions at our Digital Imagery Plus store. These are vintage wallpaper images from the 20s and thirties. Have fun!

As you know all contests have rules so here we go.

1. Backgrounds must be created from the vintage freebie wallpaper package.

2. There is a limit of five background entries per person.

3. Images must be uploaded to the Digital Imagery Plus gallery in the "Background Contest" folder. If you have not registered in our gallery you will need to follow the instructions on the left for doing so.

4. All entries must have a detailed report of what was used and how the backgrounds were created. This file will be placed in the description area when uploading entries.

5. All backgrounds must be created entirely from one image. (You cannot combine overlays or other images with the background image). However, the wallpapers do have borders therefore you can use those anyway you want. You may also remove a section of a wallpaper and make an entirely new background from that, such as the removal of a flower or flowers. These are simply suggestions of course so that you understand what you may or may not do on your background entries.

6.The use of brushes, filters and other program tools is allowed.

The artists still retain their full copyright and may use the image as they so desire.

8. Backgrounds will be judged on a point system by the judges. Points being 1 to 5 for creativity, originality and overall looks. The less it looks like the original the better your chances of winning.
