Okay... now that I have your attention, here's the deal...
A couple of weeks ago, in the CommunityMX Newsletter, we featured a link to Clientcopia. If you missed it or don't subscribe to the FREE CommunityMX Newsletter, Clientcopia is a site where graphic designers, artists, web designers and just about anybody else can go and share their horror stories about past clients. Some of the stories are truly hysterical if, for no other reason, you have probably experienced something similar.
Well now is your chance to share your own web designing client horror stories with the rest of your CommunityMX neighbors.
You may be asking yourself exactly why should you do such a thing. Well, I will tell you why! Because if you e-mail me YOUR favorite client or web designing horror story AND if it's humorous enough, clean enough, AND able to fit into the format of a web comic, I will create a CMX Suite strip based on your story!
And, should this contest exceed my expectations and I end up getting more submissions then I know what to do with, I might just make this a regular, once-a-month feature with CMX Suite.
So... what do you get if I should happen to pick your story as the basis of the strip?
<Cue drum roll please>
You will receive a copy of the full size (10.5x4.5") high resolution version of the comic strip plus my original sketches based on that strip. The artwork will be sent to you flat via snail mail. And, if you so choose, you will also receive full credit for the idea as well. If you want to remain anonymous, you can do that as well.
So, what do you need to do? It's simple, really.
Send me an e-mail at email@example.com with "Web designer client horror stories" in the subject header. Or you can just click on the link I just provided and everything should be good to go. If your e-mail client does not have anything in the subject header however, please make sure to copy & paste "Web designer client horror stories" in the header so I know that this is an entry. Any e-mails I get that do not have the "Web designer client horror stories" in the subject header will be disqualified or eliminated.
Tell me your story.
Supply a mailing address so I can be able to actually send you the artwork. Or, if you have a broadband internet connection and can handle a large file size download, I can also transfer the high resolution files to you via e-mail should you prefer this option.
Let me know if you would like to receive credit or would prefer to remain anonymous should your story ultimately be picked.
Then, once I have had a chance to read all of the e-mails, I will choose a winner. Once that winner has been chosen, and the strip created, I will let them know when the strip will appear on the CommunityMX web site and approximately when they can expect to receive their prize.
And since the New Year will soon be approaching, we'll make this a New Year's contest. The cut-off date for receiving entries will be 12:00 midnight, Sunday, January 16th eastern standard time. Once the deadline has been met, the winner will be chosen and the strip created. The winner will be notified as soon as the strip is complete.
So, if you're interested, start sending in your submission entries TODAY!
And, good luck!
