The date!

All entries must be submitted by 11:59pm, June 29, 2010 (PST). Entries submitted after that day/time will not be accepted, sorry.


I'm interested! How do I get started?

Just create and email us () your image or photo of a cool idea for a Xat Flag. We will select the top 20 submissions and pass them on to Xat.com staff for final selection and approval and post the winning entries right here.


Rules! (a.k.a. "the fine print")

- You must be a registered Xat user
- Up to 3 submissions per person.
- You must use the provided Xat Flag template (see below) and your final image must be either in jpg gif png or bmp format. Note: keep in mind that your flag will be scaled down to approximately 30 x 15px (that's a ratio of 2:1).
- Important: Although you can send us your design using the template below, please RESIZE YOUR FLAG to 30 x 15 pixels just SO YOU CAN SEE what it will look like at that size.
- No obsence and/or pornographic Flags.
- Although entries are required to be original creations and cannot be copied from anyone or anywhere else, you may use Xat smileys and/or generic clipart to better convey your idea. Flags that have been clearly copied from the internet will be eliminated from the contest.
- Text on flags "is allowed", but due to size constraints you are limiting the chances of your flag actually being chosen.
- By participating in this contest you agree to automatically grant (and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant) to Xat.com ltd. a full irrevocable Copyright of your Flag design.

Thanks everyone! We'll keep you posted of any changes via our Xatworld Twitter feed (follow us now).



Update 1 - June 18 10:57 am: Do NOT add too much detail to your flag. We're getting wonderful entries but many of them have too much detail. Remember, your flag will be reduced to 30 x 15 pixels and at that size much of your detail will be lost.

Example: This flag has a great design, but at 30 x 15, most of the detail will be lost...

Tip: Always reduce your flag to 30 x 15 to see what it will look like before submitting.


Update 1 - July 12 3:00 pm: ...and the Winning entries are! First off, a big thank you for everyone that participated and let others know about the contest. There were lots of interesting entries but in the end the strongest ones seemed to be those that (1) scaled down to 30 x 15, (2) had some universal attraction, and (3) could easily be made by Xat.com.

Anyone interested in viewing all "qualifying" entries can go here. I'll contact each of the nine winners via email and let them know how they can claim their prizes. Thanks again!
