2016 GameServers-TF2Design Skinning Contest

Intro:

In collaboration with tf2design.com and GameServers.com we are running a short TF2 skinning contest with some sweet prizes. The theme is as simple as it gets - design an item or set of items for use in TF2

Judging:

A panel of 5 judges chosen by TF2Design will pick the winner(s). The winners are very likely to be announced on June 15th. Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Originality of the item(s)
  • Quality of the item(s)
To qualify, entries must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE!

    Ok, we are arranging judges now and the judging process should be quick.

    Now, what everyone has been wondering... unfortunately, we cannot afford to fund the current prizes levels by ourselves. I'm very sorry about this. It is partly my fault for not requiring a cash prize deposit from the sponsor before launching the contest. Here is what GameBanana can afford to offer:

    • 1st - $200
    • 2nd - $100
    • 3rd - $50 or DOOM
    • 4th - What 3rd place doesn't choose 
    I may also be able to get others to donate games and I will reach out to gameservers.com (who is contactable) to see if they'll honor their share of the prizes (the servers).
    It is understandable. Still prizes are somewhat good and its awesome that you honor your promises inspite the difficulties.

    Hey guys, I have reached out one last time to the contest sponsors. If we don't hear back by June 15th we will take over the judging and prizes. The last response I got from TF2design.com was May 8 and I've tried repeatedly to contact them. 

    I've heard back from someone at gameservers.com so hopefully some of the prizes will still be honored.

    So, no 500$ prize ?
    As it seems, it's not quite decided yet. TF2 Design has gone silent ever since contacting GB. GameServers was one of the sponsors so we gotta wait a little bit first.

    Either way, the winners wouldn't have been announced by 15th June.

    Is it just me, or do I only see 3 entries? Are there submissions not listed?

    Such less entrants for this contest lol, and this has higher prizes than nearly all of the past mapping contests :P
    Actually, there are 4. I wish there were 3 only. lol 

    Anyway, Corvalho's submission got out-tagged so I re-tagged it.
