    Wallpaper Contest #1! GM

    Welcome everyone to a new feature at GMI.
    Every month we will have a contest to design new background wallpaper.
    Each month will have a different theme.

    This week is GM in general. Not a specific car. Not a specific brand. GM as a whole.

    Come up with the best wallpaper you can. It can be 1 image, a collage of many pictures, etc.... It can contain pictures, text or a combination of both. All of that is up to you. Make it cool. It can be hand drawn, computer generated or photoshopped.

    Please don't just submit a pre-existing GM stock photo. Make it your own.

    We are not looking for photoshopped images of the cars themselves (leave that for the weekly chop contests)

    All entries should be at minimum 800x600, but ideally 1024x768.

    To enter, just make a new post with your entry in it.

    We will have voting for favorite at the end of the month. Multiple entries are welcome.

    This is the first trial of this contest, so for rules, voting, etc... we'll play it by ear.

    As always, HAVE FUN!!!

    Cool new idea rex, although I'd like to see 1280x1024 versions for LCD screen users.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    The bigger the better as always. But minimum 800x600, and ideally 1024x768 or larger.

    do we have to worry about copyrights etc when using GM logo's?

    think of someone that you consider to be of average intelligence...
    half the worlds population is stupider than that person.

    We aren't doing this for any commercial gain, and any images you find you're probably finding online, so, I don't think we'll have any issues.
    Especially if we portray GM in a positive way.

    If you want to blow us away by integrating an original high-rez photo one of you guys took yourselves of some new GM product at a show or dealer lot (if you can sneak that camera by the ever-watchful salesmen lurking in the wings ), that would rock, too.

    C'mon guys lets see some more wallpapers! I know you can put together a collage like I did, and give it your personal angle. I'm sure a Camaro wallpaper contest is in the future somewhere, but GM has a rich portfolio for this "General GM" contest.
