Greetings!

Ever wanted to be a game designer?

http://toucharcade.com/2012/02/22/fa...-of-its-parts/
If you don't have it, you should totally get it!)

The contest is called: We Got Your (Card) Back. (we hope you like the name; we spent weeks thinking it up!)



Basically, you submit a design for a card back in Fairway Solitaire. Our favorite design will win.

The winner will get:
  1. their design included in a future update
  2. an-in game credit (excellent bragging rights)
  3. a $50 itunes card to celebrate your bragging rights

Official contest rules can be read here: http://bigfishgames.custhelp.com/app...tail/a_id/1950


Be creative. Be bold. Be lazy . Whatever works for you. Stick figures will be considered too! Just make sure it’s original work.

The contest starts now and ends at 11:59 PM PDT on Monday, May 28, 2012

To submit your design, send an email to: mcdivot@bigfishgames.com

The Original Design artwork should be 364 x 540 pixels. This is twice the size of the final card size. Final art will be at 182 x 270 pixels. You can download a PSD template here.


If you have questions/comments, please post or message us. We’re here to help.

May the best design win!

Oh- and for the non-designers, if need be, you can just sketch an idea and we'll make it production ready if needed

What pictures must be in the card? Does Fairway logo must be there? Or the Squirrel? Is there particular color must be there?

If Yes can you upload the transparent image of Fairway and Squirrel (PNG or PSD file)? Thanks

We have no specific requirement on what has to be included, just that the design you submit must be 100% your original work.
