    To attach 'native' files is needed to show that you did the wallpaper by yourself.
    If you are not sure about just attach / upload all files you have created (temporary).
    Or use your own way to demonstrate that you have created the wallpaper by yourself. (Save the progress of your work several times.)

    We just want to avoid that somebody uses a already created wallpaper from somewhere...and adds 'MDL' or something...

    Powerpoint format is *.ppt.

    It's just a suggestion, but I think it's better "Contest" instead of "Competition", competition souds like something with other forums alike, contest, well just a contest :D

    It's that competition is like what you have opponents but more in a not friendly way. For example, there's competition between M$ and Oracle in the DataBase business, and "our competition" is usually used to mention the other companies. Contest is an activity that you can participate and win.

    But yes, you're right, they're not so different, it's just I thought contest was a more appropiate word :)

    Lol...no :biggrin:

    Please read the terms and conditions again:
    Period: Until 30/09
    Minimum competitors: 5

    A good strategy for competitor's would be to wait until last day.
    When the thread will be closed then, nobody of them can change something any longer.

    I will add the link to it at first post, later when I'm at home....
    Everybody that wants to create a wallpaper may use it.

    I didn't know that somebody could be interested to use it.... :)

    And don't forget: You may update your wallpaper any time until the thread will be closed for voting..
    Edit: PSD file of MDL logo added to first post.

    Well, I guess you are right.
    Yen probably has put MDL at the middle to represent the sun and all around are different items..different ideas..different people.

    I used different symbols to express that MDL is something great. I didn't want to copy Yen's idea. I used bodies representing man with digital code, thoughts coming out as light ray: far beyond imagination, MDL big letters to show how great MDL is. :)
    Also smoke shaped like a woman, feminine shape, female aspect of MDL. (digital=2).

    Edit: I saw Yen has released original logo....my wallpaper is already finished. If I got idea to use I can update. But a artist should remain being himself, not copy..
