iLounge Wallpaper Contest - Winners Announced


This contest is now closed. Winners have been announced here. Congratulations and thank you to all who submitted entries! Everyone loves desktop background art (aka wallpaper): after years of submissions, we now have over 450 pieces of art in our Desktop/Wallpaper Art Gallery. Now we’re looking to expand it - and cover the latest and greatest iPod models. So we’re announcing our latest art contest: “Wallpaper Yourself an iPhone, Apple TV, or iPods.”

The rules are simple:

Other than the name and the image of the iPod, the work must be entirely your original creation, and created for this contest. Photographs and artwork are both acceptable, however, original art is strongly preferred. We’ll pick our three favorite pieces of wallpaper to win one of the following three prizes.

Grand Prize: One Apple iPhone* ($499, 4GB). We’ll help one lucky winner buy Apple’s combination cell phone, widescreen iPod, and Internet device - we’ll supply the funds for the iPhone; the cell phone contract is your responsibility.

Second Prize: One Apple TV ($299, 40GB). Enjoy iTunes-managed audio, video, and photo content on your widescreen TV with the new Apple TV device.

Third Prize: One iPod nano ($199, 4GB) and one iPod shuffle ($79, 1GB) in the winner’s choice of colors.

“Photographs and artwork are both acceptable, however, art is strongly preferred.”

What is the difference between “artwork” and “art”?

And also, does anyone know of a freeware app compatible wit Mac 10.2.8 for making a 1600x1200 desktop so I dont have to use the Finder’s picture taking feature?

Rina: Not for a valid contest entry, no.

lilimacmike: It’s the same thing.

My image for the contest is only found in search, why isn’t it with the rest of the images.

is it 1600X1200 is that mm or cm????

I love so many of the entries I’ve seen so far in the galleries and am really worried about being able to match them.
Interesting to see however that about 50% of the entries don’t fit the criteria of the comp by not using the specified iPods, the logo or being in the right format.
Maybe I’ll risk a flaming after all. :-)
Seriously guys, read the rules!

jack: That 1600X1200 is pixels. Even though the presence of a UK guy on the staff may suggest the possibility of inches. Or Euros.

Isn’t the point of “wallpaper” that is should be used as a background for the desktop?  Isn’t this a Mac contest?  Then why why WHY specify 1600x1200 since NONE of the current Macs use this resolution, that is SOOOO PC centric.  Maybe you should pick a Mac Standard.  1920 x 1200 would be a good choice since that is the direction that a majority of the Mac displays are headed.  Bigger is always better anyhow, since almost universally images look better scaled DOWN rather than scaled UP.  I’m sadly disappointed in this contest.

So where does one get a good version of the iLounge logo?

Posted by drg in Irvine, CA on February 22, 2007 at 4:15 PM (CST)


i only saw about 3 good ones in the whole bunch, the hullabaloo one on the first page, the music&intruments; orange one, and the by mark kempken. the rest either do not use the current model ipods or follow the instructions, the others are just plain ripoffs of other people’s work, unoriginal, or just plain bad.

Posted by ryan smith in Irvine, CA on February 22, 2007 at 5:10 PM (CST)


Yes, please provide us a vector file of the ilounge logo for use in this design…!

Posted by Robert in Irvine, CA on February 22, 2007 at 8:20 PM (CST)


this is going to sound really dumb… but does anyone know of some program or something i can use because i dont know how to make the background the 1600x1200 pixels…

Posted by confused in Irvine, CA on February 22, 2007 at 9:30 PM (CST)


Ted, um, no, this isn’t a Mac contest. It’s about iPods and iLounge, not computing platforms. Check the prizes - do you see a Mac-only device there?

Posted by Pikemann_Urge in Irvine, CA on February 23, 2007 at 3:22 AM (CST)


Hey Confused, Photoshop is the perfect puppy for the job.

I can take part in the contest. I come from Spain, Europe. Thanks

can we make a wallpapaer without the iLounge logo?
with only the text “iLounge”?

and can we draw an iPod? (rather than take a photo)
