Skin Consortium in association with Xion Audio Player and it's
author Cliff Cawley bring you this exciting competition.

Think you have what it takes to design and create the ultimate Xion skin?
Well then this competition is just for you!

Competition Time!

The competition will run for the next month and we're looking for some
really cool skin designs.
With Xion taking care of the coding this leaves the design aspect to really
flourish and we will be looking at the design aspect of the skins and
clever use of layer control to get the best out of what Xion is capable of
doing.

So put on your designing heads and pull out your graphics editors and show
us your creativity.
Get skinning! :)

  • 1st Prize $250

deadline is 30th May 12pm Midnight GMT :) so you got plenty of time yet, remember we're looking for quality so please don't rush things, plenty of time left to make it as awesome as you can :)

the other good thing with this competition is that we are also opening up the voting to a user poll too so the public has a chance to vote for their favourite skin and affect the voting points

Does this mean we can only submit our entries to the Skin Consortium contest link until June, or are we allowed to post our entries here too?

if you cannot post them on the sc forum then please email me with the skin and i will put them up in the SC forum
you do not have to have an SC forum account but we would like to keep them all on the SC forum for the now, of course feel free to register yourself at SC if you would like to.

the SC forum is one of the best places for coding, skinning media players :) we welcome new members too :)

Ok, so I'll just have to refrain from posting them here until June.

Anyways... my PhotoShop computer is crapping out, so I'm stuck where I am until I can work out why it won't boot. Fortunately, my PSDs are recoverable.

if anyone has finished skins then feel free to email me them (IF you do not want to join SC forum) and I can put them up in the completed Xion skins comp thread

of course add any specific info if need be, a promo pic might also be good or some kind of screenshot so that it helps us reduce the amount of time needed to post these (if your not doing it yourself)

Thanks :)

SLoB, just because none have been posted yet, doesn't mean they are not coming (or are done) ;)

Approx 1 week left to competition deadline!

Well I know there are some skins in the works by the skinners out there, you have approx 1 week left before the deadline, get those skins coming in soon, ideally you want to get them in well before the deadline so that they can drum up some enthusiasm and excitement before we start voting on them.

Also remember that a public voting poll will be put up for the skins entered, this will run for 1 week which is ample time to get votes in.
The voting will be held both here and the SC forum and votes will be combined, they will also contribute to the judges votes!

Good Luck to all who enter :)
