Please review the project documentation at http://sp.dumire.net. I have created wireframes/mockups of 4 of the pages needed for the site. This contest is for the home page only. After a winner is selected, I will pay the winner an additional $100 for each sub page that I ask him/her to design.
Follow the wireframe! The wireframe does include some graphical elements but these do not have to be used. What is important is that the placement of all the elements is the same that is in the wireframe.
Final delivery of the home page will be an unflattened psd file. Do not use a template. All work should be your own.
I have been very careful not to list the client's name on this site. I do not want you to do so either. Anyone who does so will be immediately disqualified from winning. Also, by entering this contest, you agree not to use the clients name in any other marketing materials you produce for yourself, especially your website. You can post your design to your personal website as long as you do not show the client's name and you blur out any logos.
Please adhere to this closely. If my clients find out my methods for getting their sites designed, it jeopardizes my business. In turn, it jeopardizes my ability to host any further contests.
Payment: I am happy to offer payment by either western union or paypal. If you elect to use western union, all transfer fees will be deducted from the prize. Also, respect the fact that in order to send a western union, I need to leave my house and visit a western union location so your payment will not be as immediate as if you use paypal.
I know that many of you refuse to provide the master file before payment. I similarly refuse to pay before the master is provided so in my last contest, I've worked out an arrangement that I think was pretty successful. I will give you two options. I will pay you the entire prize amount in one payment before you send the file, or I will pay you an additional $100 to send me the file first.
I stand by my contest history. You can contact any of my prior winners to confirm that they were in fact paid.
