One Billion and Counting: Photoshop Contest

One Billion Is Coming

After six years, hundreds of thousands of quizzes, and tons of fabulous users, we’re rapidly approaching the ONE BILLION play mark on Sporcle.com.

Since we don’t know when ONE BILLION will hit, we’ve decided to keep rolling out new contests and fun activities. Check out the original One Billion and CountingOne Billion and Counting: Favorite Sporcle Quiz, and One Billion and Counting: Quiz Contest for previously announced contests.


Today’s contest: Important Moments in History (Photoshop contest)

It’s time for another Photoshop contest! As Sporcle approaches the ONE BILLION play mark, we’re reminded us of all the other important moments in history. What if Sporcle was there when Martin Luther King Jr made his ‘I have a dream’ speech, when the Berlin wall came down, or when the Greeks sent their wooden horse into Troy?

The rules:

    • Create an image that includes the Sporcle logo
    • Connect your image to the contest theme (Important Moments in History)
    • Paste your entry in the comment section (If you have problems commenting send us a note)
    • Use this source image to get started (or this one, if you’re just thinking about just using the globe.)

Prize: We’ll publish the winning image as our Facebook cover page.

Our original Photoshop contest offers some great examples of historical events, or you could draw inspiration from the most recent Sporcle at the Movies. Even if your design doesn’t get featured, it’s sure to bring some chuckles to your fellow Sporclers. Send us a message if you have any other questions.

*The dimensions for a Facebook cover photo are 815 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall. You don’t have to use these dimensions, but we may end up re-formatting your image if your entry is chosen.

  1. Sorry, the picture is rubbish because I haven’t got photshop and had to use MS Publisher. But “One small step for man, one giant leap for Sporcle-kind”

  2. I searched for a historic fact from 1000000000 years ago, but since those are scarce (we’re speaking the Tonian period of the Mesoproterozoic era) I went for second best. Since this “historic” movie might not be well-known, I’ve also included the original image. Oh, and excuse me for my terrible paint skills but it’s something.


  3. Don’t have photoshop, but did the best I could with what I had – The Berlin Wall comes down

  4. Oh rats, I had my moon landing one all ready until I saw cleverone’s image. I’ll use this instead
