The Contest: Win Cash Money

Last year, we ran a contest for anyone in the community to create an awesome corporate Christmas card for Beefy Media. The results were astounding, and the winning submission was sent out to all of our clients via e-mail.

This year, I'm looking to RAISE the STEAKS. (Yes, I did that). We are going to DOUBLE the award pot from $50 to $100 (deep pockets, right?) AND the winning card will be PRINTED and mailed (hard copy style) to all of our clients and a handful of Giant Bomb community members.

Recap from last year:

  • It should involve either a cow, beef of some sort, and then a Christmas/ Holiday theme. Some ideas would be a Christmas dinner spread with beef instead of turkey, a cow with a Santa hat and beard, an elf made of roast beef - anything at all. If it has video game elements, all the better
  • Since it won't be a commercially sold product, Trademarked imagery is fine but try to avoid it if you can.
  • Please provide a HIGH RESOLUTION FILE (.PSD preferred, but .TIF, .PNG acceptable) that is 5x7 (work area can be 5.5 x 7.5 for printing purposes). Dropbox, YouSendit, whichever delivery method preferred

LOGO SOURCE PACKAGE

The Beefy Font is called 'Boston Traffic' and the link is here.

The Media font is called 'Mesquite STD' and the link is here.

The cut off is MIDNIGHT on Thursday, Dec 15th. I will announce the winner on Friday, and send the cards to the printers.

A little bit about Beefy Media

In 2010, I left Capcom to start my own video game production company. Since the start of 2011, we have released 6 products - Scre4m for iOS/Android, for iOS, Spy Kids 4 for iOS, Scre4m, Robocop, and Rocky Avatar Collections. We've announced World Gone Sour and Pid for consoles, both coming in 2012. We've had the pleasure of working with awesome people at The Weinstein Company, MGM, Kraft, Might & Delight, CodeGlue, Other Ocean, Muteki, and many other companies.

Special Thanks

What I'm also thankful for is the incredible community here at Giant Bomb. I've worked with YOU FOOLS to create banners for my website, jam on music ideas for games, design t-shirts, secretly test games, record VO, edit videos, and shoot the shit on Skype randomly. It's really an amazing place, and I'm proud to be part of this community.

I'm excited for 2011's entries! GOOD LUCK, and may the best PHOTOCHOPZ SKILLZ WIN.

He's lucky he didn't post a video, or I would have reported that shit for Youtube spam.

Everything Adam touches gets sticky... it's kinda gross.

I always picture one of the Chick-Fil-A cows when I think of beefy media for some reason. Someone better than I make it so, please!

Nothing like the reminder that even though I'm an adult now I can't wrap presents, and a Beefy Media christmas card competition to get me in the holiday spirit.

#15 Posted by Pacmanlh (77 posts) -

I'm not very good at Photoshop, but I had time so here.

#16 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I'll join in, but no doubt buzz_clik is going to win anyway.

Well, seeing as I didn't win last year, I'll take that bet! Also, I'm not sure if I'll have time to chuck an entry into this year's comp.

#20 Edited by CFB (121 posts) -

Yeahh, this was great fun last year!

Everybody gets beef...

#21 Posted by The_Reflection (241 posts) -

I suck at photoshop but I have a good idea that could be done with real meat. Will you accept actual pictures?

#22 Posted by AlisterCat (5480 posts) -

@The_Reflection: A lot of people on Giant Bomb know how to use Photoshop. Find someone to help you out, I'm sure there are willing people.

#23 Edited by B0nd07 (1697 posts) -

Here's mine for this year:

Full size here (or click the image). I'll PM a link for .psd shortly.

#24 Posted by TheBooya (152 posts) -

Good stuff so far, guys! I'm excited to see what comes in the next day and a half!

@The_Reflection - Leave no stone unturned! A photo will be fine, as long as it's original and follows the guidelines!

EDIT: Made a few tweaks.

I really like it, but make the steak in the front a little less blurry. It took me too long to identify it as a steak. The same goes for the second and maybe even the third steak. But awesome design!

I'll try to upload my entry tomorrow, something went wrong with the scans I made.

#26 Posted by CFB (121 posts) -

@BSw: Just updated my old post. Thanks for the tip!

#27 Posted by BSw (249 posts) -

@CFB: Yeah, that's a lot better! Nice!

#28 Edited by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I just started, here's a super early look at what I'm doing.

Not going show anymore until it's complete.

Mine now looks like crap, going to completely re-do it tomorrow. Really hope you'll like it.

#33 Posted by BSw (249 posts) -

Not as great as some of the above, but fun to make nonetheless.

#36 Posted by AlisterCat (5480 posts) -

I totally forgot about this. I should probably put something together at least.

#37 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

Ohk, now I'm able to start. A little over 2 hours left, let's do this, LEEROY-a-JENKINS!!!

#38 Edited by OppressiveStink (355 posts) -

Here's my entry. Good luck to everyone around!

PS: Mine is still 5X7, it's just long form as it made my design look better!

PPS: I don't know where to send the photoshop file. Perhaps that's if the winner is announced, the winner will get the info on where to send?

Doesn't matter, I didn't mention it on here. GL to you too. I just started :P

#42 Edited by AlisterCat (5480 posts) -

I have several ideas. My designs tend to be fairly minimalist as you know Adam. I'll post this one here incase I don't get the others done in time. Not terribly 'Christmas-y' but tastefu and classy. I like it. Also a second blue, portrait one. Similar style. Plain and clean. Not very christmas-y.

How much longer do we have?

Check the Beefy Media website, you'll find his address there. I sent Adam my card via WeTransfer.

@BSw:

Oh, hey, thanks man!

#46 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I would've spent a bit more attention to the text and some texturing, but things bugged me around with time. If this does win I'll be happy to make the changes before it gets printed. Well done everyone else :)

#47 Posted by AlisterCat (5480 posts) -

@ShaunassNZ: Santa looks pissed.

#48 Edited by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

@AlisterCat: He so is, reinbeef must work harder! Also, I so didn't steal the whole "Beefy Christmas" from you, I didn't see that on yours when I looked before.

#49 Posted by TheBooya (152 posts) -

This is a tough one! Some great entrants this year... hold tight until the morning, I think I need some feedback from the rest of the staff at Beefy ;)
