1.1 Content

1.1.1        Most Recent Monthly Contest Winner

Our community will be rating designs displayed in designers’ portfolios.

The top section of the gallery page shall display the most recent monthly contest winner. The elements displayed shall include:

  • A section title (i.e. Last Month’s Contest Winner)
  • The winner’s username (links to their profile page)
  • Image of the winning design – this is image could be of a logo, web page, t-shirt or other design, so this image should be big enough to give the viewer an idea of the design. This image will link to a larger version of the image for full-size view.
  • A description of the winning design – this is text that will give a summary of why this design was the winner.
  • A trophy image shall be displayed next to the description – this trophy/award logo will be inserted into the design by us later. Just create a placeholder trophy/award image here.
  • A monetary prize shall be displayed (i.e. $200) – the monthly contest winner will get a prize. This prize amount shall be displayed somewhere near the trophy/award logo.

  • A section title (i.e. This Month’s Contest Candidates)
