I am going to be launching a mysterious community project soon, and I need some promotional artwork/media.  It's a non-profit endeavour, but to make it a little more fun I'm putting 3000 mBTC up for grabs.  The project theme is:

"m-day is coming."

(m-day is June 2, 2013)

This is all the information you have, and your job is to create teaser images, trailers, or other forms of media which will get people interested and excited about it.


I can promise you that the project is not in any way objectionable and that this is for a good cause.  No matter what your talent is, just give it a shot and have fun with it.  Images large and small, youtube videos, shirts, 3D prints, cleverly worded tweets, you name it--we can use them all.  It could be dirt simple or a full on Hollywood production--just make me interested in M-day!

The money works as follows:  You can submit as many different things as you want.  I will be giving the entry I select as the best one 2000 mBTC out of my own pocket.  I will also give a prize of 1000 mBTC to a "community winner" as selected by votes on this forum (from accounts created prior to May 10--accounts created after this can enter the contest, they just can't vote).  The same person cannot win both amounts, and community voting will begin only after the first reward is announced.  The community vote will only be held if a sufficient quantity of quality entries are received (but don't worry--I want to hold it).

The submission period begins immediately, and runs for one week, with the winner to be announced during the Bitcoin 2013 conference.  As part of the judging I will be asking people at the conference if they have heard about m-day and if so where and how, so feel free to promote your creations anywhere within the Bitcoin community that you like (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).  Nonetheless only entries which have a submission in this thread will be eligible to win.  Make sure your submission is in by end of day Saturday (May 18) if you want it to be considered.

For those who don't know me I am a long-standing member of the community (I wrote the Introduction to Bitcoin, for example).  I run these little projects from time to time with the aim of growing the Bitcoin userbase and improving user-friendliness of The Bitcoin ExperienceTM.

Small print:  by posting in this thread you grant me a non-exclusive license to use your content.  I recommend the CC-BY license but any similarly permissive license is fine.


Edit:  Project m-day has now been officially announced!

Also, Community voting has begun!  Details here (please read before voting).

Very interesting! I will definately enter this, but are you sure you can't give some more details, I mean, we got text , sure, but we atleast need a general theme to know how to make the text, or put it in a media form, i.e, modern,nostalgic,zombie (just throwing things out there), just a little hint would be nice =P. But great contest, I'll enter eitherhow!

I had thought the same thing, so I pm'ed him. This was his repsonse:

"[We can use pretty much anything] ... it's really very open ended and the greater the diversity of the submissions the better.  After all, people tend to produce their best work when they work with a theme they're interested in, right?"

So go for anything you feel like I guess.  Smiley

Yup, Xqisit is right!  Your theme can be spooky, modern, nostalgic, cartoony, whatever you're into (although probably steer away from anything nsfw).  If M-day was the day when the most incredible thing in the world was being revealed, what do you begin to imagine for that?  Everyone has their own idea of what would draw them in and get them excited, so we want to leverage it all.  Classic, goofy, noir, light-hearted, futuristic, anything goes!  If you get totally stuck, remember that M-day is Bitcoin-related, so you can use Bitcoin imagery and symbols in your work.  Just remember that the key to a good teaser is simplicity--leaving room for imagination to fill the gap.  I will be sprinkling a few more details as the contest progresses, but nothing that will handicap early entries.  After all, the people we'll be advertising M-day to don't know what it is yet, either!

Too much freedom?!?  What kind of radical cryptotarian anarchist are you??


I am not a radical cryptotarian anarchist.

Whatever you want--it's always nice to have hi-res available, but no need to go crazy on it since this is mostly for web.

First idea:








What does the binary code say? Wink

The logo could be incorporated into different campaigns.

I was thinking of some more minimal designs as well. If I get my reg work done quick I might upload a couple other ideas.

IF you like these, I could create an animation that corresponds to the overall campaign. (However I don't do spec motion work so that would have to be negotiated separately)
