Are you a fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar who wants to have your creative graphic work featured on Sarah’s Twitter page? Then be sure to check out this contest, which is open to everyone and was sent to us by the lovely Sarah herself:

Hi everyone,

Sarah here:

I wanted to do something fun when I reached 100,000 twitter fans but it’s hard to have a contest with only 140 characters, so I decided to ask my friends at Whedonopolis to host the contest info.

And thank you all for the 100k follows on twitter!!!

Good Luck and I can’t wait to see all the creativity!!!

XOXO,

SMG

Here’s how the contest works:
You create a background for Sarah’s Twitter page and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #SMGTwitterContest, so SMG can see your work.  She will then pick a background design and a profile banner to use as her Twitter profile until she hits her next 100k followers.  A cool prize from the set of The Crazy Ones… and maybe even Buffy, will go to the creator(s) of the winning design.

 

Deadline: November 15

 

Guidelines:
Background banner: 1600 pixels wide x 1200 pixels tall 
If you plan on creating a background sidebar to go along with your background, create an image with dimensions around 235 pixels wide x 700 pixels tall and place your sidebar in the upper-right hand corner of your background when you’re finished.
Profile Banner: 520x 260 Save both as a PNG file.Try it on your twitter to be sure it fits correctly.
No tiled images please! Be creative and use your imagination!

 

The designer of the chosen graphics will be contacted by a private, third party to email the original images.Feel free to add “Created by: @(your twitter handle)” in the bottom corner. (We want you to take credit for the design.)

Here are some links that should help with getting the dimensions right:

    i think you can create it wherever you’d like, as long as you’re able to submit it according to the guidelines.

  • Rebecca Hazlett

    how do you make one, because my profile/background I like and it would be cool to do but how would I tweet it

  • Laura

    Can we submit just one of the two graphics, ie. just a banner or just a background, or do we need to submit matching background and banner? thanks!

  • http://twitter.com Isis Nocturne

    You can do either or both. Your choice.

  • http://chelseairl.com/ ChelseaIRL

    If you’re tweeting from the twitter website, after you click in the box to the left to type a message, you will see a little camera icon appear below the text box. click that, and navigate to the picture you’ve created. If your using a twitter app, it will be a similar process. Then when you tweet it, make sure to use the hashtag #SMGTwitterContest

  • Sarah Bercar

    Thanks !! cos really is not working

  • NickIsMyBSBSoldier

    so the background has to be 1600 pixels wide x 1200 pixels tall exscally or can we resize it down a little bit ?

  • https://twitter.com/Barone2525 Timothy Barone

    Cool!

  • oxxHELENxxo

    do we suppose to just attach the pic to a tweet with the hashtag? is it gonna be the same size when you will copy it? and how can we upload 2 images (profile and background) if Twitter does not allow it? maybe it would be wiser to upload images on an image host site (there are plenty of them) and include a link in a tweet?

  • Marsia

    Or put a link in the tweet to where the artwork is.

  • Marsia

    All we can say is those are the specs we were given.
