Oscar Week Day 2: Photoshop Contest

Thanks for joining us for Day 2 as we celebrate the Oscars! Movie trivia is such an important part of Sporcle, and so we’ve taken this week to celebrate the movies, directors and actors who bring them to life.

On Monday, we encouraged you to earn the Oscar Obsessed badge. Today, we’re announcing the start of Oscar Week Photoshop Contest. This is your chance to showcase your creativity and sense of humor.  And maybe even get your work published to the Sporcle Facebook page!

If Photoshop isn’t your thing (or even if it is), check back tomorrow for details about the Oscar Week Quiz Contest. Both contests will be open for the entire week, so you can take your time and enjoy the creative process. The Academy declined the opportunity to judge the entries, but Sporcle Admin is up to the task.  Get the details below:

Oscar Week Photoshop Contest

We’ve done Photoshop contests in the past, and we’re always super impressed with the designs you create. The theme this time around is SPORCLE AT THE MOVIES, and the door’s wide open for anything that falls in that category.

The rules:

    • Create an image that includes the Sporcle logo
    • Connect your image to the contest theme (Sporcle at the Movies)
    • 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 the cover of our Facebook* page.  The previous winning design stayed as our cover photo for most of the fall season, and we received so many compliments on it! Check out past Photoshop contests for examplesideas, and even more ideas. Or 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 slightly if we do make it our Facebook cover.

    Representing Sporcle with pride.

  2. “In a dream, I saw the eastern sky grow dark. But in the West a pale light lingered. A voice was crying: Your doom is near at hand. Sporcle’s Globe is found.”

  3. Of course, back then, there were fewer answers in Countries of the World.

    yet another harry sporcle and the sporcle of sporcle

  12. I showed you guys the IMDb page for the first instalment in a previous Photoshop competition. Now, here it finally is, the long anticipated sequel.

    • Hey Sheldon,

      Do you still have the image for the original? It was hosted on another website and disappeared from our other contest. Post it here if you still have it.

      • Unfortunately, no. I just had a look earlier myself, and it’s no longer on my tinypic account, nor on my computer. I was merely going to remake it, then I thought: Why not make a bigger and better sequel? Haha

    I’m sorry, Matt. I’m afraid I can’t stop. I’m afraid that’s something I cannot allow to happen.
