The "Big Announcement": Jersey Creating Contest

Talk about NBA Live 08 here.

The "Big Announcement": Jersey Creating Contest

Postby Andreas Dahl on Fri Sep 28, 2007 7:22 pm

In the news, I wrote:The 'big announcement' that was rumoured earlier is an EA Sports Jersey Creating Contest, where the winner will get his jersey design to be featured in NBA Live 08 (as downloadable contents), an autographed Gilbert Arenas jersey and 6 game titles from EA SPORTS. The runner up will receive 5 game titles, and the person finishing in third will get a copy of NBA Live 08.
So get your creative juices flowing and enter the contest here.

(If you are not a resident in the USA, you are, according to the rules not eligible to enter the contest. So be sure to read through the rules.)

Feel free to post your entries here as well (y)

And screw it, I'll enter to..

I made two jerseys. It's incredible how they both can't be submitted because I don't have some username or password to enter the secure area of beta.easports.com.

Anyways, a quick read of the rules shows that you can create a jersey from scratch as long as you only use your original creations and/or the artwork provided at the site. I wouldn't know how to get that art work off the site. I guess I should try using IE instead of firefox.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but the rules seem to contradict themselves.

This Contest is only open to individuals who are residents of the 50 United States (excluding residents of Rhode Island), the District of Columbia and Canada (except Quebec) who are thirteen (13) years of age (or the age of majority for his/her particular state or province) or older at time Contest begins and who had Internet access as of August 25, 2007. This contest is void in Rhode Island, the District of Columbia and Canada (except Quebec).


Anyway, the news will no doubt come as a bit of a letdown for anyone expecting major news regarding the game itself but it sounds like a fun idea for a contest to me.

I can certainly empathise, I find myself excluded from similar contests for the same reason.

I was hoping it was that the demo and all previous related media was a sham and a vastly superior game with a new engine would come out on Tuesday. :crazy:

In honor of the Knicks

I think the new Knicks Jersey is inappropriate considering recent news.

You press the "PrntScrn" key on your keyboard, and the whole screen is copied as an image to the memory or "clipboard" and then you "paste"(CTRL+V) it into an imaging program like Adobe Photoshop or Paint. In Paint, you use the select tool to select a box around your jersey, then "copy"(CTRL+C) it. Create a new document in Paint(CTRL+N), "Paste" in that new document and it should just be the box yuo selected before showing the jersey. Then save it as a jpeg. Upload it online at a free image host and post it here. :)
