Favicon contest: win $5

My good friend Scott has been bugging me for about a week now to get a favicon for radwin.org.

I’m not the artist type (I still haven’t gotten past page 10 of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards), so I need some help.

Therefore, in good capitalist tradition, I’m going to contract out the work to someone else. I’m proposing a contest: if I select your favicon for the site, you’ll win $5.

Contest rules:

  1. Contest begins Friday, 31 January 2003 at 12:00pm PST and ends Monday, 10 February 2003 at 5:00pm PST.
  2. The favicon must be generic enough to work for the entire Radwin Family website, not just for my blog.
  3. Employees of Michael J. Radwin and their immediate families (parents, children, siblings, spouse) are not eligible.
  4. If a Canadian wins, he or she will be required to answer a skill-testing question such as “What is 613 in binary?”
  5. If the winner and I hang out in person with any regularity, they can get the $5 prize in cold, hard cash. If not, payment will be sent via PayPal.
  6. Only original designs will be accepted. You can’t go and submit http://www.raysun.com/favicon.ico and expect to win.
  7. Void where prohibited by law.

Good luck, and may the best favicon win!
