Welcome to Frijid Pink's 21st "Free Magic Giveaway Contest".
Contests 9 through 12 were held on the Spookclub Forums, all the others were held on these Penguin Forums.

As mentioned before I've decided to share some of my magic with fellow Magicians that I no longer have a use for or have decided I can live without. This contest comes at absolutely no cost to you. The items I'm giving away are totally free, I even pay the postage.

:arrow: Please pay particular attention to all Rules and Restrictions. Any deviations could possibly result in your disqualification from this contest.

:arrow: CONTEST RULES AND RESTRICTIONS ...

:arrow: (1) Only those who reside in the US are eligible.
Reason/s: My investment of the item to be won is has already come out of my own pocket ... and the shipping/postage is coming out of my own pocket. I am on a limited Disability Income, disabled and have difficulty getting to the Post Office. Winner will receive the item secured in simple packaging with Stamp/Post Office postage. Nothing special, but what the heck, it's FREE to you! I apologize for the residential restriction but maybe some of you other countymen could consider running your own contest/s.

:arrow: (2) All entrants must have a minimum of 200 posts on the Penguin Magic Forums.
You must have at least shown that you are a contributor to the Penguin Forums and not just entered the Contests with a minimum amount of posts to take advantage of a free magic offer. Your other contributions, financial and/or purchases from Penguin Magic are not my concern, only your post contributions. In order to be fair too those who enter my Contests that have contributed to the Forums, I have to ask that all entrants who enter have made a fair contribution as well.
Other than the above, all Penguins are eligible ... meaning any registered member of the Penguin Magic Forums who reside in the US, and have a minimum post count of 200.

:arrow: (3) Only one (1) entry per person.
Attempting to make more than one entry in any form will result in immediate disqualification. This means no use of multiple user names or editing of messages to change your guesses/answers to the contest. All edited/changed guesses/answers will result in disqualification.
:arrow: CAUTION: The Penguin Forum Moderators can and will check for infractions on multiple user names and message editing on all entries. ..... You have been warned.

:arrow: (4) Winner must be available to be PM'ed or E-mailed.
When the winner is chosen and announced I will need a way to contact them to get their address to send them the prize/s won.

:arrow: (5) After notification you will have one (1) week to claim your winning Prize/s.
Make a note to yourself, or write down on your Calender, the date of the Contest ending time so that you may check back to see if you’ve won. After 1 week of notification all unclaimed Prizes will automatically default to the second winner.

:arrow: (6) At the end of the Contest I will make a post to announce the winner. I will then notify the winner for their address and the topic will be open for comments and congratulations to the winner, and I'll start my next contest soon after.

:arrow: END OF CONTEST RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
--------------------------------------------------------------------

:arrow: This 21st Contest will run for one (1) week, starting at the time it’s posted and ending the evening of May 24th , 2008.

:arrow: What is/are the item/s to be won from this contest? ...
Prize/s ...
Image

:arrow: Now on to the contest. What do I have to do to win? ...

This Contest will be to see who can create the best Avatar for Frijid Pink.
I will judge which one I like the best and use it throughout my next (22nd) Contest.
Post your Avatar Images within your entry messages. DO NOT PM THEM TO ME.
You are free to make as many Avatar Image entries as you wish for this Contest.


Now, without further ado, let's get on with it ... whadaya say?

I got the avatar we have from the internet. I know we have to creat our own idea and picture, but how do I create the picture using what program?

Thanks for the reply.

Do the avatars have to be scaled down and ready to use or is it okay if we post them bigger?

Can we use animations?

Does it have to be original?

EDIT: I made a super fantastic animation but when I try to post it it only has the first frame. How do you post a animation? Does Image Shack host them?

I would rather they be scaled down already (80x80 pixels), but a little larger will be acceptable.
Yes, animations are a plus.
Original preferred.
Animations have to be a GIF format file or they won't animate.

For creating them I mosty just use "Paint".

Can we use other photos on the internet, that we didn't create and enhance them for your viewing pleasure?

And Frij, how will you know if someone didn't just get the avatar from some site on the internet? Depending on honesty?

You can use any images you wish as long as the end result has something to do with "Frijid Pink's Avatar".

Yeah, depending on honesty, and originality ... I can usually tell what's original and what's not.

Here's mine. Sorry that it's so grainy, but I had to compress it pretty far.

It reads: Frijid Pink...Were a bunch of stoners...I mean, look at them!...
