Among the explosion of apps, meetups, and plug-ins we’ve seen from the Corona Community this past year, we’ve also caught word of multiple books on Corona coming soon — and one of those books needs some ‘input’ from you, our users!
Our dear friend Michelle Fernandez of the MobiDojo studio is set to release the Corona Game Development Beginner’s Guide in February. She and publisher Packt have everything written and all in place for the book’s release — except for a book cover.
And that’s where you come in! 😉
Between now and January 28, we’ll be accepting submissions for cover art to Michelle’s Corona book. The winner will not only have 1.) their cover art used for the book, but also will receive 2.) two free copies of the book and 3.) $100 USD in cash from Packt Publishing. Not only that, but two additional runner-up winners will receive a one-year subscription to the Packt Games Library (a $120 value).
Excited yet? Awesome!
Here’s how to enter…
All entries should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow these parameters:
- 300 dpi in resolution
- Minimum width of 7 inches and height of 5 inches (no maximum, though!)
- CMYK color mode
- JPEG file (if you win, they’ll ask for an uncompressed TIFF or .PSD file)
- 2 MB maximum file size (just for initial JPEG entries)
The judges will be the author Ms. Fernandez herself and our co-founder tag-team of Walter and Carlos. The entries themselves obviously will be judged on artistic merit as well as their “visual impact,” reference to gaming and game development, and how they evoke the feeling of working with Corona.
Again, the deadline to submit is January 28, 2012.
Based on previous contests we’ve held, we know it won’t be an easy task to choose the final winner since so many of you tend to submit stuff of extraordinary quality. Needless to say, we are preparing ourselves to be floored!
Best of luck to ya!
*UPDATE* We heard you! Now, the winner also will receive a yearlong subscription of Corona SDK PRO with the aforementioned prizes.
