Sorry, just my opinion and to let you know I'm very dissapointed I'm unable to participate.

This is a question thread. We're all very sorry you're disappointed, But she has mentioned this will not be judged on how good your art skills are, but your overall idea! If it had been a scavenger hunt, it would of been hard for people who are not on immediatly will have a less cahnce.

I think you should make a more modern looking shirt in colors like brown or navy and make the WI symbol less bold, make it kind of distressed.

It seems I remember reading from the founder that they "prefer" we post pictures of our idea or "art" to better get our idea across. I understand the contest is on creativity but how do you express in "words" an idea for a possible WI item effectively enough to compete with others with the computer skills? Us older folks and the very young are at a distinct disadvantage.
As someone pointed out this is a "question" forum so heres my question. Will the winner be chosen based on the most creative idea and do you really think it will be one who can't express it in some kind of art form?
Have you seen the kids posting? How do I , I don't know how, I don't have paint,...... so unless this is going to be a random drawing from those that participate in any form they're capable of my opinion stays the same.

Oh, and the scavenger hunt wouldn't be who finished first.......it would be more about what information and experiences we were able to gather. Of course the judging would have to allow for the age of the contestants...... which I'm hoping will be done in this current contest as well.

I sincerely think the "giveaway" is a marvelous idea and a show of "good will" and appreciation from the folks at WI . I just wish it were a little easier for all to partcipate effectively.

It's really unfortunate that a lot of people don't understand we are only permitted one idea. I don't know how many people have said, "I have two ideas".

I certainly have more than one idea, but, for my safety, I have only mentioned one.

Many people also are ignorant to the fact that we cannot include the copyrighted names Webkinz or Ganz, and cannot include copyrighted images, such as virtual or actual pets.

Please, read the rules in full before submitting your (one) idea! Someone with a good idea is going to win, and if someone with a great idea does not follow the rules then they will miss out on a great prize!

I think sets of things are approaching the grey area where the idea is the whole kit but it applies to more than one item. Colours of things I would never consider to be more than one idea; colours are so secondary.


If anyone is reading this who has problems loading a picture, let me try and do my part to help, as I know of one method:
1. Go to tinypic.com.
2. Under the heading Upload Images & Videos, and further, File:, click browse. Browse will take you to a window similar to that when you open documents.
3. Find the image, click on it, and click Open (or double-click the picture).
4. Click the green box that says UPLOAD NOW! The picture should now be uploaded.
5. Click the line beneath the heading IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards.
6. Right-click, and select Copy (or simply press Ctrl+C).
7. In your message here on WI, put your image in by right-clicking and selecting Paste (or simply pressing Ctrl+V). This will input the code you copied, and will appear as an image in your post preview and final post.

I hope the tips help! Good luck!

My understanding that you are looking for a WI graphic (without the word Webkinz in it) and then we could show you one way of using the graphic but the graphic is the piece that is being judged.
I, too, was puzzled about this and am very curious to find an answer! A logo design and a merchandise idea are two very different modes of thinking, and I wouldn't want to enter something that they aren't looking for! If you get an answer, please let us all know!

Sherry, if you have trouble with computer graphics, you could always hand-draw something and then scan it or take a picture of it to put on the computer. I'm sure Wendy and Justin understand that not everyone is a computer whiz and they won't be looking for a perfect picture!

Several people have asked this and I think that as much of a pain as it may be to go through all 18+ pages of posts, it's kind of our responsibility to do so to make sure we aren't accidentally copying someone's idea. As it says in the rules: "No copying or cheating allowed - cheaters will be disqualified." I imagine that the judges will take the first posted entry of that idea and disregard identical/very similar ideas posted after.

As Farglesword said, it's very important for everyone to read the rules carefully; this will help answer most of the questions on the thread!

Hope this helps clear things up a bit, and I wish everyone good luck!
