The Psdtuts+ "Solving Poverty" Button Design Contest has reached the deadline, which was a few days ago on September 28th, 2008. Our goal is to have the top 10 Button Design winners chosen before October 15th when Blog Action Day launches. Make sure your already submitted entries qualify by providing the artwork in the dimensions needed. Learn more at the jump.
Making Sure Your Already Submitted Entry Qualifies
If you already entered the contest, but didn’t include a link to the artwork at proper dimensions, then be sure to do so. Submit a high quality JPG image at the size of: 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches at 200 pixels per inch. Here is the format link and the corresponding formatting page on Cafepress.
The easiest way to do that is to link to the artwork at the specified dimensions within the description of your entry. This artwork is what goes on the button, not a mockup. An example of the image displayed in the Flickr group is fine, as long as you link to the usable artwork at the proper dimensions. Keep in mind new entries will not be accepted, but you should provide the proper artwork for entries already submitted.
High Quality Entries
There were a whole lot of great entries. Here are a handful to give you an example. If you want to see more search the Psdtuts+ Flicrk Pool under the tag solvingpoverty. These are just examples from the contest. We are still judging the entries.
As mentioned above, if you entered the contest, make sure your entry qualifies by providing the artwork in the correct dimensions and format, as required by Cafepress.

The VECTORTUTS “Solving Poverty” T-Shirt Design Contest has concluded as well. The 5 winning T-Shirt designs will also be announced soon. You can see all the entries for that contest placed under the same tag of "solvingpoverty" but in the VECTORTUTS Flickr Pool.
