One Grand Prize winner will win a white Apple MacBook computer and 80GB iPod combination (est. retail value: $1448).
One Second Place winner will win a black 80GB iPod (est. value: $349).
And finally, one Third Place winner will win a 4GB iPod nano in Silver, Pink, Blue, Green or PRODUCT (RED). (est. value: $199).

You can use any type of original artwork or original photography; so long as it’s visually appealing and tasteful, we’ll consider it for judging.

I have a question…what is the main font iLounge uses on their graphics…it looks to be the same as the font Apple uses on their graphics too.  Can anyone tell me the name and where to get it?

Posted by Daniel on November 5, 2006 at 9:09 PM (CST)

The font is Myriad Pro.

Are these images allowed to be posted/uploaded to other locations?  Not for commercial or contest use, just for personal use.  (Like deviantART or forums outside of iLounge)
