Even though we can’t put text over the iPhone Nano, we are still able to include a styled background, correct?

Jeremy - please clarify “or based in part on iLounge photos of the current-generation iPhone or iPod family”. Where would said photos be located? I’m leary of photo-rights usage (especially Apple’s), and am wondering if same-icon usage of Apple’s interface would be a problem.

Thanks and Cheers!

Just a friendly reminder for everyone. I was looking through a few brilliant concept entries but they didn’t have names or locations attached. I don’t know whether those would qualify…

Posted by Joel on October 19, 2007 at 1:31 PM (PDT)

The rules dont ask for a location so hopefully that wouldnt change our eligibility

Posted by JOSHequalsMC2 on October 19, 2007 at 3:46 PM (PDT)

Yeah, I didn’t put my name or location on my submission either, didn’t see a place to do it. What should I do?

Posted by Brian Joseph on October 19, 2007 at 5:42 PM (PDT)

At the bottom of the contest descriptions, in italics, it says rather bluntly that location is needed…

Posted by Joel on October 19, 2007 at 5:43 PM (PDT)

Simply, i wanted to comment you that i submitted several works named “iphone nano concept” numbered from 01 to 06 and i only have seen the number 06 in the gallery. Although all are very seemed, it exist some diferences between them (basically the background)also in the first image i do a little description about functionalities of the gadget.
P.D.: I forgot to include my name in the concepts submitted thus I hope this comment help us if you need my name.

So, for the holiday ipod contest, the photo needs to be a minimum of 1600 pixels wide? When you click on ‘submit your entry’ it says photos should be 640 x 480—so which size should it be?
