Show Me the Color! The Pixlr Color Pop Contest #PixlrPop


Pixlr Express is making a COLOURlovers Expansion Pack! This is going to be a such a fun and unique contest open for all talent-types utilizing our very own familiar tools. If you're crazy impatient and want to skip further reading, go here to submit designs right away!

A Pixlr Expansion Pack is used in photo overlays, borders or stickers in their impressive and fun photo editing apps. Remember to use #PixlrPop on social media to tag and follow the fun!

To enter the contest, you will need two components:

1. A Pattern Template (one or more)... specifically, one you made.

2. A bunch of your own color-popping Palettes to color your Pattern Template(s)

3. After you've gotten a collection of bright and powerful colored patterns ready to submit, head on over to the Contest Submission Page and submit like crazy (every day).

Where to start?

I have made some tutorial video's over the past couple weeks, however, they go in to a lot of detail, so don't worry, I've thrown together a CRASH COURSE to jumpstart and survive the contest!

You will be creating using:

Pattern Template Maker: Seamless Lite

Palette Making: COPASO or Basic Palette Maker

More in-depth resources:

- Intro to Seamless Studio

Basic Palette Making

Advanced Palette Making 

So what's in it for you?

If your design is chosen (aka you win), it will be used to inspire the Pixlr Design Team's choices in the development of the COLOURlovers Expansion Pack as a photo overlay, border, or sticker. These are design elements used throughout Pixlr apps, but more specifically you'll get to see them available on Pixlr Express (for free!). Pretty exciting!

Eight (8) Winners! Check out how the winners-scale works!

This is something more unique to the COLOURlovers contests. I personally love the concept Colin has put together because it allows more overall opportunity.

* Each day a winner will be selected (behind the scenes by Pixlr & the CL Team)

* Be sure to submit and keep submitting each day (as many times as possible!). You must submit content each day to be re-considered for that day. I highly suggest, making fresh designs for each new day. CONTEST SUBMISSION PAGE (again!)

This means each day of the contest is an opportunity to win something (you can only win once throughout the entire contest). It will not matter what time of each day you post, between 12:01am to 11:59pm PST (with the exception of the start and end dates) because the submissions will be randomized in a filtered gallery for the judges panel.

gmt to pst

Community LOVES will still be available on submissions, however this filter is not displayed to the judges at choosing time, nor will it affect decisions in the slightest. We did want to do something fun with the community loves so we'll be giving five (5) Sponsorship 1-year level-up or extensions to COLOURlovers members design submissions with the most Loves. *You may only win once in this category.

hmmm I will make a note to the guys. However, the Love Voting isn't as critical as us voting behind the scenes. :)

It looks like you can, but I didn't want to advise wrongly. I can double check by tomorrow okay?

This looks awesome Molly, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with and to try out the winning designs on my photos:)
I'm starting to feel like the ugly duckling :p
Omigosh! A really cool new contest and some truly amazing prizes. Thanks for making this happen. :)

I think it's great that there's a new contest everyday, too- that's lovely!

Here's my first set of entries:
Thanks for this. so nice to have a contest again.
This filtered gallery used by the judges is hopefully nothing like the 9 random designs filter is it? because that tends to pick the same ones over and over,
If I understood correctly, users are not from all countries can participate in this contest?

if you are from these ones you are ok
, UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA, BELGIUM, CHINA, THE NETHERLANDS, COLOMBIA, DENMARK, GERMANY, INDIA, NORWAY, NEW ZEALAND OR SWITZERLAND , US and bits of CANADA

otherwise it seems you are excluded. I think that needs to be stated a bit clearer.
Yes, that's what I meant. It is quite strange. :)

Thank you Molly and AutoDesk for this contest. Just to prove I'm an obedient little colouring minion, I'm following your dictate in the post to "submit like crazy" :)

Also, I have the same issue as Architela. I'm using Safari. So loving like crazy is time consuming.

Yay! A contest again! Now this is indeed awesome. This is really nice and feels more like the Colour Lovers I remember. Fun Fun Fun. This sounds like a good one. Thank you Molly :D
Do they have to be brand new created templates? Or can you use templates you've already created that you really like? And do you have to use Seamless Lite or can we use Seamless Studio?
Team
They CAN BE OLD templates, it takes anything from your own colored template library... I'd love to see some new ones too, but I believe it will accept older ones I can't recall if it will keep the LOVES or not though... just fyi...

The filter gallery is nothing like what you guys see... I think we had a glitchy start to filtering and loving. Sorry, doing our best to manage the outside workings and view of the gallery / contest overall. The inside view for us is very different set of filtering and seems to be fine.

Well, I guess I can't enter but that's quite fine (even more so since I'm not 100% sure I get what the entries are for :D ). Good luck (or, since that's kinda moot when saying to everyone, have fun) for everyone who's entering :)

And I agree, really awesome prices!
