:prayer: WOW, awesome :supz:
Thanks so much, really looking forward to having a nice new 5770 in my system. Damn, now I need to upgrade the rest of it, haha :lol:
I would love to see my design on the actual card like the 5870 but I sure can't complain :mrgreen:

Congrats to von0m8oo for winning the grand prize. =D>
It's a really great design and he obviously put a fair bit of effort into it. Probably more than me (although I did spend way too much time fussing over mine, haha)
I guess he'll have to quickly do a flipped version of it though, before it goes to print.

There were a few entries that showed remarkable digital drawing and painting skills which I have to say I thought would have won.
I guess it just came down to what the judges were looking for and unfortunately for these folk in this case it wasn't what they wanted.

Thanks again everyone, this is probably the best thing I've ever won :mrgreen:

Awesome job everyone. I had a very hard time choosing the best designs and didn't see any that were bad.

wow congrats to the winners. They're all very good and definitely professional quality. I must say though considering some of the other entries I'm a bit surprised by the winners. Guess I just missed what the judges were going for. All the winners look like cards that could be seen in a retail store, I assumed the judges were looking for a more personal touch. Guess not. *shrug* Good job again to the winners!

Congrats to the winners! Nice pieces of work.

How many entries did you chose and send to AMD to let them make the final order?

Anyway Congratz to the winners, even though I accept my loosing, I'll still go cry in a corner, cheers all!

Hey guys,

First of all I'd like to congratulate the winners :) Well done.

Secondly:

I think the same as you mx6er, they do look professional and slick. The competition brief was quite open with what it required, but I myself assumed it meant be more creative and put different/less seen visuals on the design of the card, like illustrations etc, just as you said, a more 'personal touch', obviously it was was more of a traditional design outcome they were looking for, so yeah... I guess not too haha.

But yeah, well done everyone, I put a lot of effort into this, and I'm damn sure everyone else did too, it was a good competition experience (my first online competition). At least I can use my entry for my portfolio! :-k

And also, thanks to all the moderators, especially to Aptosis. =D>
