Calling all artists and graphic designers to enter the Flink12 icon art competition. Become a Flink12 artist with your art featured and promoted globally through the Flink12 network. We are looking for original, extreme fun and highly expressive icons for the Flink12 social network. These are the status update icons used by hoards of Flinkers every day and are used on the web and on mobile on Apple devices and Android. We find many great artists cannot capture the emotion and expressions we are looking for in our icons, therefore it is hard to judge from existing work. Please note that Flink12 is a free product to all users and icons have no fees attached.
The competition is open to artists anywhere in the world. Only original artwork, conceived and created by the entrant, will be considered. The artist retains the copyright to submitted icons.
PREPARING YOUR ENTRY
1. Create a Flink12 account with a minimum of 6 people in your Flink.
2. You must submit at least 4 icons, one in each category of mood, health, activity and event. Title the icon set and attach a word or two for the meaning of each icon. Art must be submitted in 72x72, 100x100 and 144x144 pixels or dpi digital files saved as .png. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. All submitted icons will be reviewed by Flink12 and if your art is chosen by Flink12 to enter the competition, then your 4 icons will be added to the competition submission category of Flink12. There will be no payment for competition submitted icons.
4. The names of all artists (whose art is accepted in the competition and published in the competition area of the Flink12 website) will be listed in the competition area of Flink12 while their art is published.
5. If you are selected for publication of a feature set, Flink12 will commission you on a work for hire contract for a minimum US $3,000 contract to expand on the icon theme you submitted. Flink12 may select more than one artist to create feature icon sets. Most Flink12 icons themes-Teens, Divas, Sports- contain 80 or more icons so you must be prepared to create many icons based on your submission theme. You may also be selected to create additional icons themes as well.
