I was disqualified? Woo how did I even miss out the size thing? grin its painful though, even if I was not gonna win, for my design to be scrapped out is heartbreaking, I think I am done! Good luck to those still in the contest. sad

Oga Admin NO. It will not be right to make this adjustment at a time when we all are already expecting the result.

It has been an exciting contest. Though it will not be bad if all the shortlisted contestants get some form of Ad Credits (it will help you get paid ads in future).

Yes! #Ok may be I am bias

I think this one is over its contest and all rules were expected to be followed, if anybody defaults and he is disqualified I think that is justified.

Only problem I see here is having same old guys and funny enough I saw way more great designs, so its hard to say which is best for you, if you want good designers may be you should look up to something like this is the near future.

I personally saw good designs and they are no were now sad

Seun: Should we allow everyone to submit corrected versions of their entries?

No - you really don't have to be sentimental about the contest. In actual fact, this is part of the competition. Its not your fault if we can't follow a simple rule.

However, I would rather suggest you use a POINT base analysis system to grade each design and penalise for any form of spelling errors.

Your point based system could focus on creativity, colour combination, visibility, marketability.. e.t.c 10 points each... that's totally up to you. Penalise 2 points or so for spelling mistakes, size limit criteria and sum up the rest.

Having said that, under no circumstance should you accept any entry after 6pm. Think about this as an aptitude test, every one knows the answer if given extra time. Time limit should drive creativity.

This is just a suggestion and should only be accepted if you feel some of the good designs have been penalised.


By the way I don't know how you are picking your best designs. Shouldn't it be best design in each of the category? I don't think a winner can have good designs in all the four category.

Apologies for my long text.

All the best with your analysis.

Regards,
Manifest

@Seun: Even though I missed the top five by the whiskers, I don't think it's fair to allow people (including myself) who were not impressive (in your opinion) to adjust their submissions. The way to go is to organise another contest soonest to enable those who couldn't put in their best due to certain restrictions, to do so. Personally, I know I could do a lot better now that I have mobilized all my graphic tools. In the interim, those who made the cut MUST be rewarded according to the rule.

Re: First Nairaland Dynamic Ad Design Contest by chivision: 10:12pm On Oct 31, 2013
I have been monitoring this contest with keen interest. And I must commend seun and the participants.
Congratulations to you all.
Though I wouldn't want to doubt the impeccability of the judge in selecting the winners, the process of judgement is very unclear to me; and as such, I am highly compelled to highlight few of my reservations.

Yusuf's and lightheart's designs are questionable to me for some reasons:

1. Yusuf design was creative, but we are talking about 318x106 banner ad here, with a very limited space. As such his design would have made more impact as brochure or an offline handbill instead of 318x106 banner ad. His space management was completely subpar.

2. Looking closely at yusuf's Wizkid entry, you would have noticed the poor quality of the Wizkid pix, which is very unbecoming of a graphics champion.

3. A good graphics design must pay close attention to details and requirements. The requirement of Fashola's ad clearly stated "on the platform of ACN." So, how then should the 2nd position be the one without Fashiola's political affiliation, ACN? No name, no logo?

4. One of the criteria for disqualifying egift's entry as you rightly stated was that "the name of the university he wants us to apply for is too tiny to read." So, how then was this same rule was not extended to yusuf's and lightheart's when it's clear that they both omitted the name of the university they supposed to be advertising?

5. If granted, the only entry that should have been less questionable to be at the top was that of Me-n-you and Archmage, but I doubt if both are good politicians. lipsrsealed Simple and clear communication is the key to ad best practice, and moreso when the net, where every second count, is involved.

In summary, I believe the judge considered the faceless praise of some of the entries, which is unbecoming.
@Seun: I appreciate your resolution to bring on another contest, but remember, whatsoever is what doing is what doing well. A little compromise, a little waiver, and the purpose is destroyed.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks

Contact Devine on 08066696890 or 0802468543 or via email on obidevine@yahoo.com for your GPS vehicle tracking installation and services.
Do you know that installing a CAR TRACKER device and enhanced vehicle security has been a key contributing factor towards recent decreases in car theft,so as a preventative measure all of the associated costs of car theft can be potentially mitigated. In addition to this, are the insurance savings potential from adding tracking devices to vehicles; lowering insurance premiums through reduction of the likelihood of theft.

Have you ever wondered how installing a car tracker can help you reduce your insurance premiums.. Here's how ..

Modifications

Most insurance companies ask if there are any modifications added to the car when giving a quote for a vehicle. While some of them may classify a tracking device as a modification, it increases security, rather than looks or performance. Adding things like induction kits or enhanced exhaust systems can often bump up the cost of premiums and some companies don’t give the option of specifying what modifications have been added. Speak to the company on the telephone and tell them the tracker is a security measure, not a performance enhancer to make you go faster.

Safety

An increasing number of insurers are offering their own tracking devices to give drivers a lower premium. These devices monitor the driving, rather than the location of the car and are usually provided by the insurance company themselves. Having a tracker does not automatically mean your driving has to be monitored; if it’s a tracker fitted for security purposes, this may not be taken into account.

Money saver

Having a tracker fitted can help the police to find a stolen car faster, increasing the chances of returning it to its owner. This could save insurance companies money by not having to pay out for a claim, leading to them possibly offering a discount. While it varies between companies, having a tracking device fitted to a vehicle gives insurance companies the potential to offer lower premiums. The insurers might see it as drivers actively taking steps to secure their vehicle and reducing the chances of having it stolen. The reduction in processing by insurance companies means they could have less work to do in the event of a theft, allowing them to pass this saving onto motorists.
