Hey, guys! This week I've received the feedback from the folks at Pixelist about the finished prizes! Yes! We're gonna take a nice look at the final paintings, and the winnning folks will see their prizes right now! If you don't know what we're talking about, it's good for you to check out the Pixelist Instagram Photography Contest post! It's all explained there, but just for you to know, Pixelist (http://www.pixeli.st) is an awesome service where actual artists will turn your Instagram pictures into actual handmade paintings. Pixelist came from a love of all things custom and creative. We spent years designing our own clothes, shoes, furniture, and art and hunting for the best craftspeople to bring them to life. So we were naturally attracted to the idea of using Instagram to revive commissioned painting. So here are the final paintings: 1st place - 20x20" oil painting A photo posted by ART IS THE WEAPON (@vampirehoney) on Nov 11, 2013 at 2:26pm PSTFinal painting 2nd place - 15x15" oil painting A photo posted by Carlos Martínez (@cmartinezes) on May 5, 2014 at 11:33pm PDTFinal painting 3rd place - 12x12" oil painting A photo posted by Mario Foresta (@averageblur) on Oct 10, 2014 at 11:49am PDTFinal painting So these are the final paintings, which will definitely look great hanging in each winner's wall!

This contest wouldn't be possible without the amazing work done by the artists at Pixelist.

Hey, guys! Great news for everyone because today we're starting a brand new awesome contest here at Abduzeedo! This one is for photographers everywhere, because our buddies at Pixelist - an awesome service where a group of artists translates Instagram photographs into canvas - are going to giveaway a handmade oil painting to 2 lucky - and obviously talented - people. Read more about the work at Pixelist (http://www.pixeli.st): Pixelist came from a love of all things custom and creative. We spent years designing our own clothes, shoes, furniture, and art and hunting for the best craftspeople to bring them to life. So we were naturally attracted to the idea of using Instagram to revive commissioned painting. An example of Pixelist's work. Customers often ask about our artists: where they’re from, if they’re students or professionals, how well they are paid, etc. We now use about 20 artists on a consistent basis. Most are based around Xiamen, a relatively wealthy city on China’s southeastern coast that is known for fine art and crafts. Nearly all of them studied at art universities and have years of professional experience. We pay our artists well – anywhere from a quarter to a third of the cost of a painting. Another third or so goes to marketing and promotion and we use the rest to pay ourselves and keep the lights on. No one is getting rich from Pixelist quite yet. We're so thrilled to get this going! Here are the rules: RULES 1. Submit your entries to Instagram (you may submit as many as you want); 2. Include the phrase "I want this picture to become an oil painting by @pixelistart #abdzpixelist". Please, double check to get the hashtag right, because that's how we're going to find your entries! Images will be evaluated by the Abduzeedo and Pixelist teams! THE PRIZES 1st place - 20x20" oil painting ($309 worth prize); 2nd place - 15x15" oil painting ($189 worth prize); 3rd place - a coupon for 30% off in any purchase at Pixelist! DEADLINE Submissions were closed on October, 16th. The winner will be announced on October, 23rd. And of course, don't forget to share your entries with your Facebook friends and to like Abduzeedo's page to get updates on this contest! The winner will also be announced there! Check out this video to see the process! Check out some of the latest entries! We are excited to see your entries! Good luck to you all!

For the first time Abdz is doing a contest in partnership with an artist and a sticker brand, just in case you don't know both, let me introduce you to them. About Sticker Robot Sticker Robot it's a top notch Sticker company, producing the best and most extraordinary genres of sticker you will ever see. Working mainly with silk screen, their printing technique can make any sticker dream you have come true. Hydro 74 (Joshua Smith) Hydro74 is a Orlando based designer, otherwise known as Joshua M. Smith. The soul purpose of my career is to push the boundries in doing what I feel is relevant to the market as well as extract various elements and trends to be able to offer them up in my own personal work. But let's be honest. I do what I love because I love it. Not because I have to do it, nor am forced to do it, but rather passionate about doing what I do. I firmly believe in having set style tones, yet a sense of diversity to make any various project unique to the demands that are set forth (Hydro's website). How it works Your design can be anything you wish, but do it only on BW. First step is to download the working template here(supplied as illustrator eps and photoshop tiff files). The design should be black and white. The dimensions for the sticker are 3" x 3" and must be at least 300dpi and must be designed in the CMYK color mode. When entering your design to the pool on Flickr, save it as a 72 dpi Jpeg 500 X 500 pixels and name it "Abdz Sticker - name of the art". The theme The artworks should be all black and white, a little reverence to our friend Hydro 74. Besides that, the theme is free, just watch out for the colors. The prizes First place: Pixelmator license, 1000 stickers of the winner's design, 1 poster and 15 fonts from Hydro 74's collection. Second place: Abdz Book, 500 stickers of the winner's design and 10 fonts by Hydro 74. Third place: 250 stickers of the winner's design and 5 fonts by Hydro 74. The other 5 best artworks: Stickerobot pop culture parody pack and Hydro74 sticker selection. Deadline The deadline is April 1, 2012. Please read the instructions on how to submit your entry. You can enter up to five designs. The winning entries will be posted on Abduzeedo, Sticker Robot and Hydro74.com. Bonus Discount All Abdz readers got a special discount till the end of the contest on Sticker Robot store by using the coupon code ABDUZEEDO in your shopping cart.
It is finally time to announce the winners of the Stickerobot.com contest. The prompt was to "come up with something clever which references a well-known person/event/meme or whatever, from 2010.

This past July Abduzeedo put on our first offline event. Despite the fact that I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out, it actually went really well. A lot of people showed up and now we're planning to organize another battle in another city, or maybe even another country. The Photoshop Battle consisted of eight designers battling it out to take home the title of Abduzeedo Photoshop Battle World Champion. We'd draw a subject in which the contestants would have to design a wallpaper in 30 minutes. Even though that's a pretty short time to create something cool, the final results were stunning. After almost seven hours of dispute, we had our first Abduzeedo Photoshop Battle World Champion: Cássio Braga. Below you can check out a video by John Arlington with the highlights of the event, (in which John was kind enough to include English subtitles for all you non-Portuguese speakers out there.)

Prize 1. $ 200 (send via PayPal), an approval for an original collaboration with the artist and a feature on Abduzeedo 2. $ 100 (send via PayPal) 3. A Single Version of image editing program Pixelmator (worth 59 $) 4.

He is one of our favorites at Abduzeedo and has been featured in numerous articles and interviews ( Interview: James White ). I have always been pursuing my personal design and art projects on my own time. This led to me creating Signalnoise.com, my personal art blog which serves as a conduit to the global art community and has become a source for spreading inspiration, process and technical information. This eventually grew into an online store where I sell my posters to people all over the world. http://www.signalnoise.com/ Take part at the contest This is an independent design contest with endless possibilities to finish this piece.
