EDIT : The poll is now live ! Please come and vote for your favorite entry !
More news on the poll thread.


Hello everyone !

For the upcoming 10th anniversary of Bitcointalk, we imagined something special to commemorate this event.

Artists are solicited a lot lately with the ongoing art contest.
Coldkey is a new brand, we do not have much BTC or Merits to offer, but still, let's make a cool physical item that will be widely accessible;
so everybody can hold onto a memorabilia of when Bitcointalk entered it's 10th year of existence. Smiley

It will be a fully functional, not loaded, secure physical cold storage wallet, with the design of the winner.
We will be offering it at a competitive price to make it possible for everyone here to hold their own 10th years of Bitcointalk collectible item.
(Unfortunately, to lower our retail prices we need to pass on the UV for this release)
Made on Bitcointalk.org, by Bitcointalk.org users, for Bitcointalk.org. Smiley

This special Coldkey will be available for purchase during one month (from 22nd of November until 22nd of December) without limits in quantities.
Of course, they will be serialized and embossed; we will keep the first & lowest 10 serials for a further auction.
100% of this auction proceedings will go to Charities. *

What is it all about ?

If you don't know about it, let me quickly present Coldkey to you : it is a secure physical cold storage wallet in the form of a card.
We have announced the project in the Collectibles section back in April, since then we have released three different series.

(Our latest collaborative (with 1Dq) release, the History Coldkey)

You can find more informations about our cold storage wallets on our website : https://www.coldkey.eu ;
or on the different ANN threads we made for each serie :
(Genesis Edition, Bitcoin Coldkeys and History Coldkeys)





What about the contest then ?

Right !

We think it would be awesome to create a Bitcointalk.org anniversary commemorative item with a design that comes directly from our community.
This is the reason for this contest. Let's make a Bitcointalk.org item together !

At the end of the contest, a poll will be organized to pick the winning design. (16th to 21th of November)
The winner gets the main prize and contestants making it to 2nd and 3rd place will be rewarded as well.

Contest rules :
- Make a design for a Coldkey that reminds you of Bitcointalk.org.
- It must be your original artwork.
- An entry is a front and a back. Please submit both.
- Dimensions are 54x86mm.
- Any design with some NSFW element will be automatically disregarded.
- You can submit multiple artworks, but please keep them all within ONE single post.
- Due to various reasons, we reserve the right to pick the submissions that will make it to the poll.
- We reserve the right to disqualify any user from the contest, at our sole discretion.

You can project the space for some elements on the design (like the QR codes), but if you don't we will always find a way to fit everything on the Coldkey.
(Do not focus too much on positioning the elements; however a 22x22mm space will be used on the back by our hologram.)

Please submit your designs on this thread.

Deadline : 15th November 2019 11:59pm Paris time.
(Countdown timer : https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20191115T235959&p0=195&font=cursive)




Prize list :

1st Prize : 4x 0.005BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey + 4x 0.001BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey +
 4x Bitcointalk.org 10th anniversary Coldkey + 1x Genesis Edition Coldkey

2nd Prize : 2x 0.005BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey + 2x 0.001BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey + 2x Bitcointalk.org 10th anniversary Coldkey

3rd Prize : 1x 0.005BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey +  1x 0.001BTC Bitcoin Loaded Coldkey + 1x Bitcointalk.org 10th anniversary Coldkey

(Funding for prizes is provided and is part of the prize)



Thank you very much for reading and considering to take part in our contest.
We are equally impatient and curious to see your art pieces, and very excited at the idea of making a Bitcointalk.org item. Smiley

(Please keep this thread clean, it is only for the purpose of the contest. If you want to, comment the project on our ANN thread)

* : maybe split between several ones. Thinking of the Bitcointalk Charity Program, Free Ross, Save the Bees, Sean's Outpost.

So you're looking for art pieces which can be used as possible designs? Would a canvas painting that you could then translate into a design be an acceptable entry? Just asking as I've got a spare canvas and a lot of acrylic paint and might give this a shot very soon Smiley

May I also suggest that you restrict people to a single post. I don't know if you are going to permit multiple entries or not, but regardless of whether people submit 1 or 5, to reduce spam IMO it should be kept to 1 post - that's a problem the 10th anniversary contest thread has right now.

———

I would also suggest you make the poll part of your judgement but reserve your right to be subjective. Polls are easily gamed by alts.

Perhaps a ‘poll’ in Ivory Tower where votes are done by posting, as you need to be a Member to post there, might be a better idea, but I still suggest the above as that is still easily gameable.

Thanks a lot DiamondCardz for bringing all these points.

Absolutely. Smiley
As long as it is your original artwork, it's all good. (We'll verify that before starting the poll)
For example, the History Coldkey pictured in OP is a canvas made by 1Dq; it's a picture of the canvases, adjusted to fit our needs.

The tech in our hardware allows us to create beautiful cards, so let's make use of it. Smiley



May I also suggest that you restrict people to a single post. I don't know if you are going to permit multiple entries or not, but regardless of whether people submit 1 or 5, to reduce spam IMO it should be kept to 1 post - that's a problem the 10th anniversary contest thread has right now.

Good idea. Thanks for your suggestion.
We do not want to limit creativity, however I agree that this thread shouldn't become a spam thread.
Please keep all your submissions within one single post. Abuse will lead to the disqualification of the participant.



That being said, this thread is fine to discuss the contest.
However, do not spam it with artworks. Please keep them all in one post, I will regularly update the 2nd post of this thread with the most notable entries.

Just a question in regards to the prize lists, those coldkeys are cards right, meaning they are tangible and not to be rude if the winners are on the abroad residing meaning they'll pay for the rewards need to be shipped or is it included to be free as well?

Thanks!

What's to expect from Bitcointalk for it's 10th anniversary other than some frenzy. Grin

Yes, please post your designs for this contest in this thread, in a single post.
You can submit several designs, but please keep all submissions to one post.

Most notable designs will be chosen for the poll. (Subjectively but I will take the community appreciation and the overall users opinions into account)
That poll will be probably conducted in the Ivory Tower section.

Thanks for your question. Smiley

Yes, it is a physical prize and of course, winners won't have to pay for anything.
I didn't specify it but absolutely, tracked shipping is on us.
However you need to be able to receive a parcel.

I can't believe I'm the first one posting here Smiley
Please find attached my proposals.
This is how I see the future cards. Very colorful... in the front I thought that something with great impact such as family and life itself would join very well with Bitcoin, since I truly believe in its power and value.
On the back, I thought about two big events from Bitcoin history. So people can never forget them!


Edit: I came back with a second proposal! I hope this one is more suitable Smiley

Thanks a lot GazetaBitcoin and terizla for your submissions ! Smiley



There is still a lot of time left to participate ! The contest ends in ~2 weeks.
To participate, please make an artwork that reminds you of Bitcointalk, to celebrate the 10 years of Bitcointalk, with dimensions of 86x54mm.

We're are looking for more participants, as there is more prizes to win than the number of submissions so far. Grin

If you have a question, do not hesitate to ask. Smiley

PS : Prizes can be in a digital form (BTC) instead of a physical prize being sent to you, at the convenience of the winners.

I have one question regarding this, you of course want designs to be original, but would you mind someone reposting a particular design created by them i.e I use the same entry for theymos 10th anniversary contest and for this one, or the design much be a hundred percent unique?

I wonder the same, but for the authenticity of the entry and to be original for Coldkey I will make a new one today/tomorrow.
P.S. I found out about this contest only today, so I think you should bump the thread daily for more visibility @yogg

Hey Upgrade00 and Laskoo,

Thanks a lot for your questions.

Yes, it is okay to do so.
Since the artwork has been made especially for this particular event (10th anniversary of Bitcointalk) and IF it is your original submission to theymos' 10th anniversary contest then it is allright to use.

Simply adapt it/modify it to fit the requirements. Smiley

Allright, I will bump it more often so it has more visibility. Thanks for your feedback.



I will make a few trial prints with some content that was presented on this thread and on theymos' 10th anniversary contest.
Participants will be able to vizualize what to come up with and what we can do.

For example, please do not place a denomination on the card, neither the address or the QR code.
We will not be able to use your material if you merge these elements into your submission, since we will put a different pair of keys for each Coldkey.



Thank you to all participants for your submissions ! Smiley
There is a little bit than 10 days left to submit your design.

Bump for more visibility. Smiley
A little more than a week remaining to submit your designs.



I have created cards with two designs that were submitted in this contest so you can see what to expect. Smiley

Debonaire217's entry :




yazher's entry :






And .. just for fun .. Grin
After checking with Basorexia, I have made cards with designs with his submissions in theymos' 10 years art contest

I think they render in a cool manner Cheesy The dimensions were not fitting but this can always be fixed. Smiley
(higher def so we can appreciate all the details in the original artworks)




If your submission is appealing, I will most likely print it to see how it renders so users can make a better opinion for themselves during the poll.

I am very thankful to see this. I want to ask is the quality of print can still be improve right?  Cheesy

I might submit another design when I have another time.

My past will be my strength.

And .. just for fun .. Grin
After checking with Basorexia, I have made cards with designs with his submissions in theymos' 10 years art contest

I think they render in a cool manner Cheesy The dimensions were not fitting but this can always be fixed. Smiley
(higher def so we can appreciate all the details in the original artworks)




If your submission is appealing, I will most likely print it to see how it renders so users can make a better opinion for themselves during the poll.
So cool! I am flattered. I can resize and send pictures for example to Google disk.
I am also already working on a card design for your contest, I have very interesting ideas. You will see them soon.
