The State of the Sndbox Monthly Thumbnail Competition #7! [+$300 Upvote Prize Pool]

in competition •  8 months ago


Today we’re hosting our 7th monthly thumbnail competition for State of the Sndbox! Each Wednesday Sndbox does a newsletter - State of the Sndbox - to update the Steemit community on our progress and ongoing work. This monthly competition gives Steemians an opportunity to showcase their creativity as the face of the newsletter.

Our exciting first round, second round, third round, fourth round, fifth round, and sixth round had amazing submissions and we want to keep this competition going as a monthly tradition for Sndbox.


  • Previous winner of February’s Newsletter @ngfx

Every Steemian is invited to submit a thumbnail / landing image using a few parameters (outlined below). The top submissions will receive big Sndbox upvotes and the winner’s image will be featured for each week of February’s State of the Sndbox posts!


Competition Rules

To be eligible for prizes, you must follow these simple instructions-

  • Design a landing image that is 1000 pixels x 600 pixels, uses the @sndbox color palette and has the title “State of the Sndbox” clearly legible.

  • Publish a personal post using the image, describing a bit of the inspiration, have “State of the Sndbox Competition Entry” as part of the post title, and use #sndbox in the tags so that we can upvote you!

  • Share your image (with a link to your post) in the comments below.

  • Deadline is Tuesday, March 6, 2018 5pm EST. Earlier submissions are recommended to receive more exposure! We will reveal the winner in the following State of the Sndbox post.

Voting Prizes

With the cumulative weight of our curation trail and delegation power, we’re able to support many more entries from the broader and creative Steemit public! Standings are determined by the Sndbox community and prizes will be as follows -

  • First Place = 100% Upvote, Approximately $90 - The winner’s image will be used on the following month’s State of the Sndbox posts. We will credit your name wherever we use your work!

  • Second Place = 50% Upvote, Approximately $50

  • Third, Fourth and Fifth Place = 20% Upvote each, Approximately $20 each

ALL completed entries will receive a 5% upvote (approximately $5) and will be featured in a dedicated post with linked accounts. Only posts that meet the requirements listed above are eligible for a vote. Everyone is invited to submit! Have fun, and best of luck!

EDIT: due to the amazing number of submissions (well over 100!) we can only guarantee a 2% upvote for submissions that follow the guidelines articulated above (correct tag, description, color palette etc.)

Hi , my entry for the state of the sndbox contest

Hey @sndbox guys,
here is my piece for this month:

Post is here.


Yo man nice to see you here, this is great work :)


Haha! Hey :)


Steemit is a small world, BTW I was wondering would you ever consider in doing a collaborative work? I have been following your work for a while now and can not help but wonder how my flat style and your amazing shaded style will look together. :)


Yeah :) But this @sndbox monthly competition is quite popular by the way. Really good prizes and attention. Those guys have very good taste, I tell you. I never tried collabs because it's hard for me to combine something. Even when clients are sending me their sketches I have to redraw it into my style first and then color.


I know I also entered :) I understand, my offer still stand ;) so if you feel like you want to try it just give me a shout.


This is very original as always @dunsky. Good luck in the competition!

Here is my Thumbnail Interpetation:


Since this competition is looking for a creative rendition, I have also implemanted this into the design.

I thought about presenting the creativity as light, which emanates from the Sndbox logo in a geometric form, which also visualize the connectivity inside the Community. It spreads in all directions and brings out the dark environment which makes a Baroque template visible.

I made this Gif to Illustrate the Design process:

Thank you for providing this opportunity.

Thanks for the fun challenge. This is a cube pattern taking off from the sandbox logo. of the sndbox1.jpg

Here is another idea I had. It's a tip of the hat to Miro, using playful shapes and lines in the process of doing... something! of the sndbox2.jpg

Hai @sndbox. It's great fun this competition. Here is my posting link for the competition.

State Of The Sndbox Competition Entry
Hello everyone, this is my entry.


This is super fun and original. At least I hadn't seen a melting rubix cube, and the colors make it vintage looking, I don't know, I just know I like it and wish you the best in this competition!


Thank you so much. I made the rubix to melt or to spread because I want @sndbox to spread more.


That makes sense to me. We all wish for @sndbox to spread and cover the entire creative world ;)
