The holiday season’s fast approaching!
As you probably know, this blog is a part of the Yakezie network, which is a network of personal finance blogs. I love being a part of the community! So I recently started a thread at Yakezie forums asking if they wanted to do a holiday contest (for Christmas), where Yakezie members would select the best looking (design-wise) Yakezie blog. Eventually, Aaron Hung and LaTisha came up with an even better and simpler idea: we should have a Yakezie holiday badge contest. After all, we’re fast approaching the holiday season! So in case you don’t know what a Yakezie badge is, simply look at a few examples below. For the full list of current Yakezie badges, click here.
Badges for Yakezie Members.
Badges for Yakezie Challengers.
So here’s how the contest works.
Take any one of the current, regular Yakezie badges, and make it holiday-like! Submit your Yakezie Christmas badges to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions must be in by November 30, 2011 midnight. Here are a few tools you can use to make a Yakezie holiday badge.
- Photoshop. This is the best image editing tool around, although it’s not free ($700). However, you can download the free trial version for 30 days, which is ample time to make your own Yakezie holiday badge.
- Alternatively, here are 10 free online alternatives to Photoshop. Click
- If you have a Mac, you can also download the free Art Text program and if you’re on PC, the paint program will work also.
Below are the submissions.
There are currently no submissions yet.
And of course, like any good contest, there are prizes! Once the submission deadline (November 30) is passed, we will begin voting on the best Yakezie holiday badge! Voting commences on December 1st, 2011, and lasts until December 10, 2011. Here are the prizes.
- If anyone else would like to sponsor a prize, please email me at email@example.com
Once the contest is over, and the winners have been chosen, Yakezie members and challengers are encouraged to wear the Yakezie holiday badge with pride!
