Hey Graphic Designers - Don’t Miss This Xbox One Gamerpic Contest!

X1up Girl | November 14 2013

Gamerpics are important.  With a quick viewing of these small pictures, other gamers instantly get a feel for who we are: our personality, our personal style, basically "what I want you to know about me".   Most consoles nowadays come with a default gallery of gamerpics for users to choose from when establishing new accounts. But if you have ever gone through these pics and felt dissatisfied that none really fit you, then you're not alone.  The good news is that Microsoft is sponsoring a "Made By You" Gamerpic design contest so gamers get an opportunity to submit the designs they really want.

Per the Xbox One "Made By You" homepage:

"100 winners will be selected by the Xbox team and Xbox Community and will have their art featured in the Gamerpic Gallery of Xbox One for players worldwide to select as their Xbox One Gamerpic. Winning designers will receive an Xbox One controller to commemorate their win."

Immortality in the Xbox One gamerpic gallery AND a free Xbox One controller is a pretty sweet prize.  Sadly, the contest is open to US residents only.  :(

The entry period is open now, and ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on December 1, 2013.  Not a designer, but still want to participate? No sweat - visit the "Made By You" homepage between December 9 -20, 2013 to join in on the voting.



Calling All Chicas! Did you submit a design?  Or maybe have an idea for a design you hope someone submits?  Stop by the "Made By You" Gamerpic forum thread and let us know - we'd love to hear about it!

Hmmm, site says, "Come back on 10/25/13 to vote on your favorites." So that's kinda over. How are you supposed to vote when submissions go through the end of December?

WTG, Microsoft. :( That's a mistake (probably a typo) because the contest just went live this week. Correct contest timeframe info from the rules page:
